My best friend's kitty, Mel-Mel (Melody), passed away on 9/11.
Why today, of all days?
Why e v e r? Not ready
to say 'good-bye.' Too
much sadness, too
much lost nine years
ago, today. Don't need
another reminder ---
still not over the loss
of your brother back in
the Spring. Some say
you are 'just' a pet ---
get over it. No: you
were (and are) part
of this family. One of
my four legged kids.
The way you meowed,
relaxed in my arms,
your blue eyes --- I
will miss all of this,
everything about you.
You won't be forgotten,
I promise you. Your
name was your song:
thank you for letting
me hear, Melody.
(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (9/11)

|Sounds like Melody was an angel. She died on that day not to add to your pain but to take your mind off the other. Quite a sacrifice. Patrick|

|'One of/ my four legged kids' - rich! there are so many different ways through which fate makes us experience the time of our individual life, with the most coincidental moments that let us see how constructed is everything around us, especially time; assigning numbers to our days should help, but, of course, it doesn't. happenings have taken place, no matter what place, what time.

|So sorry, Karla and Karen. What a beautiful name you gave to her.
Our pets are so precious to us, a gift from our loving Father. But there is a time for dying that we must face all too often.
I know the Lord will help you--He loved your dear little cat, too.
Hugs and prayers,
