Light a Candle

Joobie you were a very special cat and a very special being. You were Taylor’s Gaurdian Angel. I loved how you came over my house and made yourself right at home on my daughter’s bed. My kids loved you too. My son was very sad that he could not spend more time with you. You were his first big experience of loss and he learned from you. My daughter and I will miss you too. I wish you well in your afterlife travels and hope to encounter your spirit again. You enriched and changed the lives you touched with your loving presence. You will be missed and remembered with love. Thank you for being such a great friend to Taylor for so many years.Jill Sinclair - April 9, 2019
I am so thankful that I get to miss you this much. I am thankful for the pain and the emptiness that I feel now. The emptiness that will keep coming and going, in waves. I am thankful that you were a part of my life at all, and even more thankful for how often I got to interact with you. I'll forever cherish the 2+ years that you and I got to spend together. Do you remember the beginning? When I first met you, and you didn't know what to think? I do :). I had to earn your trust. You couldn't leave Taylor with some loser boy, could you? There was some serious vetting required, and there was no better being for the job than you, Joobie.

After I gained your trust, I got to see your love. You chose me. I've never felt more humbled and grateful in my life. Tears come to my eyes when I think back to the first moment where I felt your loving energy for the very first time. How I did get so lucky? What could I possibly have done in this universe to deserve this beautiful, magical being to select me as a candidate for his love? Being loved by a soul as pure as yours opened up something within me that will forever stay open. I know what it's like to love and to BE LOVED unconditionally now, and I have you and your mama Taylor to thank.

Words will never be able to articulate how much I thank you. Thank you for all the lessons, for all of your wisdom. Thank you for the memories that I get to hold onto and cherish until it's my time to go. Whenever my mind wants to complain about some trivial issue, I'll think back to how strong and persistent you were, right through to the end. You suffered more than I ever have, yet you never made so much as a peep about it. My capacity to love and appreciate life has grown exponentially, thanks to you. I promise to take the best possible care of Taylor in your absence, just like you taught me. Thank you a million times, and I'll love you forever.
