Furry Fighter Friday

Today, my sweet, brave, beautiful friend Storm the Furry Fighter will be helped to the Rainbow Bridge.

My heart is heavy because I will miss Stormie so much. But she leaves behind an incredible legacy of love and courage and devotion which will inspire me for as long as I live.

Stormie, I love you. I will be purring for you during your journey. And we will meet on the Bridge someday.

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.

Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.

Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.

Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.

Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.

I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

~Rabindranath Tagore
