Oh Tom.It's been three weeks since I reluctantly made the decision to send you on.Three weeks full of grief and sadness at having lost my friend and buddy of 17 years.I miss you so much in so many ways.

I miss the way you were always waiting for me at the garage door no matter what time I got home.I find myself still expecting your welcoming "yowl"!

I miss the way you'd wake me up at 3:00AM by sitting on my chest,wanting "OUT!", and I'd stay up to let you back in and you'd run up the stairs and jump in the bed, waiting for me. Everyone loved you so much.You were so patient with all 14 grandchildren no matter how rough the handling got.

I miss our quiet times when I was reading and you would lay at my feet. I really miss the way you'd follow me around ,inside and out...a real Buddy !

I still see you lying in the sun on the deck railing,waiting to be brushed,and Oh how you loved it.

I woke up the other night because I heard you call,and I jumped out of bed and went to the kitchen door to let you in....and no one was there and there were no tracks in the snow covered deck.

Another night I felt your weight on my feet as I lay in bed,but when I reached down to scratch your ears,you were'nt there.
I go to your grave every day.I buried you in the backyard in the place you loved to lie in the sun,but I know you're not really there.

You're in whatever heaven cats have,waiting for me.We will be together again before too long. Until then,all I can do is miss you and remember all the good fun times we had in the 17 years we were together.

I love you so much,Tom "I have sent you on a journey to a land free of pain,not because I did'nt love you,but because I loved you too much to force you to stay."
