Duffy ~ 9 May 1991 - 22 April 2010

It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness that I inform you of the passing of my beloved Duffy

Duffy lost her battle with Lymphoma today. She & I both knew it was time ~ we were both ready to let go of the fight, and as sometimes happens near the end, her blood results from yesterday showed her CRF numbers were near normal.

Duffy almost made it to her 19th bday and as it happened today was 3 years to the date that she was diagnosed with CRF.

Duffy went with her spirit and dignity intact. Run free baby grrl.

Oh growler, there are no words that can express how profoundly sorry I am. Duffy was such an amazing soul, and your bond with her, extraordinary. Your relationship, inspirational. You looked after her so devotedly and unselfishly, and now it's her turn to look out for you, from another realm . Please take to heart my most sincere condolences.

If only there was a way I could reach my arms through this screen in front of me and give you a hug dear Growler

What a wonderful life you gave Duffy
and so wonderful that you shared it all with us pets.ca folks as well, if memories are how lives are carried on, i'm happy to say that a bit of Duffy and beautiful "tortitude" will live with me forever.

Growler i'm so terribly sorry for your loss. You gave Duffy the best life any kitty could ever want. There are no words to ease your pain just know we're all here for you and most of us probably crying right along with you.

Oh Growler, I can't tell you how sad this makes me. She was such a brave beautiful girl and I know how much you loved her. How lucky you have been to have had the gift of Duffy in your life for so long.
