Sadness

Last week was a week of great sadness.

A sweet and gentle friend lost her battle with cancer. She was just 36 years old.

As if that wasn't hard enough to bear, the same day I got news of my friend we lost our very loving cat Tess.

Thank you to those who left messages for me on my last post when I commented about Tess' declining health. I'm sorry I didn't get around to replying to each of your personally, but they were all very much appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it, and to those who don't - happy Thursday!

Oh I am so sorry that you've lost a dear friend and your sweet kitty at nearly the same time! It must've been a heart-sore time.

I love that last photo of your kitty and Annabelle - so sweet and will serve as a lovely remembrance!

What a sad time for you. Hope you can find peace (perhaps in some stitching?) during this hard time x

Oh Tess, I am so very sorry, for both your losses. If only we had a magic wand that would stop things like this happening

So sorry to hear of both of your losses.

A sad week, indeed, Rowyn... To lose a friend at such a young age is heartbreaking--something I just don't understand. Is Annabelle wondering where Tess is? I'll bet she is hard at work catching mice and chasing chipmunks with my dear old cat Shadow :) It's a nice thought, isn't it?

Hugs to you, dear Rowyn...

I'm sorry for the loss of your dear friend & you cat Tess. Cats are part of our families & homes & it leaves such a void when they are gone. Hugs,
