Mom is so thankful for the wonderful friendship she had with Auntie El. They really were Friends FurEver.
Today we are sharing the eulogy that Mom did on Monday. Dad forgot his good video camera, but we're
pretty sure you can understand the love our Mom had for Auntie El. There's a big empty space there now. Mom's not sure how she made it through so well but that sparkly shawl on her shoulders was Auntie El's and she thinks Auntie El was the Angel on her shoulder.
If you click HERE you can see the special web page that our Daddy made up for Auntie El's service. There are lots of pictures and other links. Mom and Auntie El's good friends Donna and Gretchen sang at the service and there is a prelude song (When Charity and Love Prevail) that is very pretty.
Allie likes a purple straw hat because she and Ellie are Lilac points.
Ellie likes the more casual look..
Raz says his straw hat even has a fev-ver toy on it!
Cousin Trooper's still wearing his bear hat for his Mom (Auntie El). He's sure she's looking down at him from Heaven and smiling.
We hope you enjoyed seeing our straw hats! Did you participate today?
pee ess - Mom wants to thank all of you who left wonderful, supportive messages about Auntie El's passing and so many great messages for Raz's 1st birthday. She's not up to commenting much right now but promises she will visit all of you when she can.
Mom had this post scheduled for Cousin Trooper before Auntie El left for the human Bridge. We hope you don't mind us still posting it. Cousin Trooper really appreciated all of the purrs and prayers the Cat Blogosphere sent to him and to Auntie El.
Hi furriends, Cousin Trooper here.
I'm just hanging out doing some window wiffin'
The Furkids mom did a good job at my Mom's funeral yesterday. We will post the video later this week. Thanks to all who purred and prayed for her yesterday. She said my Mom was the Angel on her shoulder.
Today is our Auntie El's funeral. Mom is very sad and is asking for all your purrs and prayers. She is saying the eulogy and hopes she does okay. Our Daddy is doing a video and we'll share it if Mom does okay.

I see Trooper slowly coming around, he followed me thru the house last night and
again this AM, even crawled in bed with me at 6 AM and stayed until we got up. I
often speak of "His mommy" and I do believe he understands.
