A thousand times I’ve thought of you,
A thousand times I’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death, I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No other one can fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home.

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.” (Rumi).

“”Grief”, I’ve learned, is really just love.  It’s all the love you want to give but cannot.  All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest.  Grief is just love with no place to go.”

LASALLE
DOB: 16 November 2014 – 02 June 2019

Already ill, but improvement on the Cortisone treatment.

The last photo of Lasalle was taken by me before he passed away the next morning.  I was alone with him.  Despite the fact that I am blind, the photo is perfectly in focus.   It captured the essence of the very special bond between Lasalle and me….How amazing…how precious…

“Sometimes a very special cat enters our lives…their presence changes our hearts forever.
And we can call ourselves blessed for having known them”

“If I should go tomorrow
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don’t you ever cry.
The love that’s deep within me,
Shall reach you from the stars,
You’ll feel it from the heavens,
And it will heal the scars.”
