Bad, bad news

Elvis went into insulin shock tonight, and I couldn't save him despite my best efforts. He died around 10 p.m. I'm too upset to write more.

Oh Julie, I am so sorry to hear about Elvis.

I am so very sorry.

This poem was a comfort for me when I lost Katie (I shortened it a smidgen)

"I live among Gods creatures now
In the heavens of your mind,
So do not grieve for me, my friend
As I am with my kind.

I nap the day on a snowy cloud,
Gentle breezes rocking me,
And dream the dreams of earthlings
And how it used to be.

At night I sleep in angels arms,
Her wings protecting me
And moonbeams dance about us
As stardust falls on thee

So when your life on earth is spent
And you stand at Heavens gate,
Have no fear of loneliness -
For here, you know, I wait. "

I am so sorry Julie. I don't really have words, and I am tearing up now, because I know how much you loved your kitty. What a wonderful life Elvis had with you, and in the end, he was just too tired to fight the battle. He is now at peace, waiting to see you again, and you will always have him in your heart.
