May, 2006 – May, 2012
I have very sad news. Jasper, our beloved kitty, died unexpectedly 5 days ago. In fact, just hours after the photo above was taken.
We are utterly and completely heartbroken.
I tell you this because I know you are all probably lovers of animals, too, and your “pets” are more than that–they are your family, and often times the best friend you ever had.
Jasper came into our lives when I thought I could never endure the loss of another animal friend and he reminded me of the importance of adoption; to endure the pain of having to say goodbye for the greater good of giving a homeless and often times mistreated animal, as was the case with Eva, a loving home.
The past few days I have thrown myself into intensive gardening projects in between bouts of some pretty heavy crying, I’m not ashamed to admit. We buried Jasper in what was once his favorite place to take a nap–underneath the overhanging canes of our ‘Pink Supreme’ rose. He’s close by and always in our hearts.
