One of my best friend's cats, Midnight, passed away yesterday. He will be missed and was very much family. :(

We'll see you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Wait for us ...

No one should ever have to see
children crying.  Tears pouring,
hearts breaking, all because of 
a cat.  No --- more than that:  he

was family, headbutting his way
into our lives, wrestling with his
brother and sisters, and yet, you
were a cat with dignity.  Our days

will be darker without you here ---
Midnight.  You sleep the eternal
rest.  You are loved; you are missed
--- it is for you we shed these tears.

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (3/29, late)

I love this piece Karla. Yes, pets are members of the family too. I have two dachshunds at home. Actually, they run the god-damned place; but that's another story. Great writing.

Midnight will never be forgotten; that much is true. He may have been only a cat to a lot of people, but to those who knew (and loved) him, he will never be forgotten! Beautiful tribute to the grieving family and especially to a special little furry friend who will live in our hearts forever! Very well penned, and the piccy is perfect!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( *tears!*
