My heartfelt and sincere thank yous to all of you who have greeted me and sent comfort on the Admiral's page and my Wall these past several days. Friendship, love and caring are like a salve on an open wound. It helps stop some of the bleeding.
Some folks who don't have pets or dislike a kind of pet or worse don't love their pet as a family member can't and won't understand what a crushing blow this is. I know the pain will fade in time. It faded when Robin flew away 16 years ago. One day I will not feel the sharp pain as much. But until that time comes, oh, I am so sad. Just so so so sad.
Last night I rose suddenly from the office chair which for once wasn't occupied by you-know-who and called to her out loud as I reached the hallway, "I'm coming to feed ya, Baby. Sorry I'm a little late!" and the words died in my mouth as I realized I was talking to the thin air. It's habit. I know..it will lessen.
God bless all of you and thank you for yourselves. What a priceless gift to ME!
