Time DOES Go On

I cannot say that the past week and a half has been easy, but my heart and mind is much more at ease with Billy's passing, than I ever thought it could be. We decided to have Billy cremated, and we now have his ashes at home, in a beautiful little cedar box. The company also made a clay impression of a paw. What wonderful people at the veterinarians! So supportive! We have received a number of sympathy cards also. One was to tell us that a tree has been planted in Billy's honor. Both Ralph and I have to thank the many Blogger friends that posted such kind remarks on here also! This Blogger community I am involved in, certainly has some of the best people in the world as far as I am concerned. You are all so special to us! In case you don't realize it, my new header pic, is a photo of a very special flower. Sweet William! After all, that was part of Billy's AKC name!

I just came home from two weeks at camp and this is the first blog I read. OH NO!!! I miss my Billy Boy....I was kinda sweet on him. He left me so many sweet nothings on my blog. Gotta go, got something in my eye. I'll see you over the rainbow someday, Billy. Stay sweet!!!

Tears stung my eyes when I saw you had changed your header. I really miss little Billy. Keep his pic on the sidebar for us, will you?

Good Morning Ms Gloria,
What a beautiful header(were they the flowers Billy wasn't allowed to piddle on?). This is a lovely post to my precious pal Billy. Any time I need a "Billy Fix" I can come to your sidebar to see him. Thank you for keeping it up for me.
Billy's most devoted Feline friend,
