Rest in Peace

Our precious Calvin boy made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge this morning after a six week battle with cancer. He was 18 years old. His journey was calm and peaceful, and he took a huge piece of our hearts with him.

We'll love you forever, Calvin, and our home will not be the same without you.

Oh dear,

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know how you must be feeling, and it is never easy. So many, so close, and not with us long enough.

RIP sweet Calvin.

Hugs to you and your family.

When I went to Calvin's page I just burst into tears. It was almost like I had lost one of my own. I'm so sorry, I really am. Calvin takes a piece of my heart with him on his journey.

I hope you and Ted are finding comfort in all the years of love you gave and received from Calvin. Even though I am many, many miles away, I know Calvin was one of a kind.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have big tears rolling down my cheeks because I know how hard it is when we lose one of our dear furbabies. No matter how long we have them, it is never long enough.

I'm so sorry Laura. I don't even know what to say. It's so sad to lose one of our dear, sweet friends. I'm glad he didn't suffer though. That would be the worst. My prayers are with you!

I am so sorry for your loss. I just stumpled upon your blog thru another and found this post about your sweet cat Calvin. This might be hard to believe, that we also had to say goodbye to our cat that same morning, he was 17 years old. They looked like they could have been brothers... maybe now they're playing together in cat heaven.
