Goodbye Storm

Weep Not for Me
Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my souls at rest.
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

We are really trying hard to follow what the title of the poem says, but it is very hard when we are so very sad. We know you are in a far better place Storm, but our hearts are hurting right now because we know how hard you fought, and how you surprised everyone with your will to live. You are our Hero! We will see you again some day at the bridge. We love you!

Sometimes it's okay to cry a little.

It is hard. My mom's eyes have been leaky since yesterday.

That was a beautiful tribute you guys. Our hearts are aching, and we will miss our friend. But we are comforted knowing that she is no longer suffering.

Yes, saying goodbye is so hard. Instead we say Farewell, sweet Stormie.

That is such a lovely poem in tribute to Sweet Stormie!

There are a lot of eyes leaking in the Blogosphere today! Willow and I are so sad that Storm had to go to the Bridge but we are so glad that she isn't in pain anymore.

Purrrrrrrrs, China Cat

A very brave and beautiful Cat Angel crossed the Bridge today. You made a beautiful tribute for her!! We will miss her like everyone at the CB!

On this sad day we ended our honeymoon and Karl will stay in the Netherlands for a week. During our adventures we will think a lot about Stormie and keeping her brother and mommies in our purrs and thoughts.

Back home we also want to thank you all for attending our special day!!

Hugs and love from us,
Karl & Ruis
