Yesterday I Lost My Faith

Filed under: General — by Glenda at 6:42 pm on Thursday, May 23, 2013

Yesterday, with unbelievable sadness, I had to give the last act of love and let my beloved Faith go. Something happened over the last week – I don’t know what – and she deteriorated quickly. The last couple of days she was in pain and suffering. Beyond gut wrenching.

With her lying beside me on the couch, I did the most heartbreaking thing I have ever done. Faith was feisty and a fighter right to the end.

Late afternoon on Wednesday, May 15th, 1996, my aunt placed a tiny 5-6 week old brown tabby kitten on my lap. Around 6:30 on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013, Joanne from Until We Meet Again gently removed my Faith from my lap.

Mommy loves you, Faith.
You are in my heart, now and forever.
Now I let you go
Until we meet again…

Oh, Glenda, I am so, so sorry. It’s so hard to say “good-bye” to…well, they’re so much more than pets. Sending {{{hugs}}} and thinking good thoughts.

So so sorry to hear of your loss. Our four legged children are so dear to us – loving unconditionally – always there with a snuggle or a wagging tail. I sometimes think they are God’s way of saying “you are loved no matter what”.
I’ve had to say good bye to many kitties over the years – some lived a long time (like Faith), some as very ill kittens – but each etches their little paw in your heart.
May you find comfort in knowing all the wonderful years you shared with your girl will live in your memory forever.
Hugs to you my old friend.

Glenda, my deepest, deepest sympathy. Losing a beloved darling is immeasurably sad and terrible. Take care of yourself, kiddo.

Sending my sincere sympathy, Glenda. I’ve had that kind of loss, too. Wish I could help more…
