  3. I was SO hoping for good news.....thus is my life half-full. Thoughts and prayers to you and Ray....I guess my prayers for no more pain came to fruition. Just not the way I'd hoped. Please know that many of us feel your pain, and know that time makes it better. Not good, just better. Love you!

  19. Oh... My sincerest condolences on the loss of your good friend.

    I firmly believe that our non-human companions automatically go to Heaven. I find that consoling. May you find similar consolation, through whatever thoughts you may embrace.

  20. I saw a peek of this post when I opened ToonDay and I got an empty feeling and was almost afraid to come look

    I am so sorry, I know how much he was loved by both of you

    I like to believe he is playing on the other side with my sweet JR and all the other good souls

    Hugs to both of you

  21. I am so sorry. He looks like my dearly departed Shammy Sham! Makes me want to cry.

  22. Oh Daryl, I'm so sorry. You know I know it's so hard right now. I'm crying afresh that you are going through this right now, too. I don't remember ever seeing a picture like this of Gus. He looks like one of my cats. Black cats are my favorite.

    I know your house seems empty and dark, even if there are other animals there. I have nothing comforting to say as it's all still pretty raw to me right now. But I think time will heal. Actually, I know it will, but I know there will never be another Gus.

  24. No! Oh I am so very sorry to hear this sad, sad news. My heart goes out to you both. With love.

  25. I guess I should've read this before I sent my last email. I was hoping your diagnosis was wrong and there was another explanation for the symptoms.

    I know how hard it is to lose one. Been there, will be again. And nothing I can say here will make it hurt less. I'm keeping the best thoughts for you and Ray and Rosie.

    Tonka says he is too.

    Big hugs for you all.
