Lily
3/2/2006 - 1/16/2021Lily is my light, my angel, and my most loving companion. She has been there through every moment in my adult life, both the bad times and the good, and sure knows how to keep a secret! Lily has provided unconditional love, with plenty of lap time cuddles, and always by my side following me around everywhere, giving her the nickname "Shadow". To always come home to her greeting me at the door never failed to put a smile on my face. To wake up to her jumping up on the bed every morning, provided a very reliable second alarm clock (even when she didn't know it was the weekend, and we could sleep in!). I learned her language and knew every type of meow, whether it was for food, attention, a bird chirp, or just to say hi. She made me a cat person, and taught me how to earn love, making me a better and more giving, loving person. I never knew a love like this could exist. Thank you Lily for all you have given me, and to provide such love in my life. I love you baby girl <3Bethany BakerWalnut Creek, CaliforniaJanuary 18, 2021

It’s so painful to lose a beloved family member. Though I never got to meet her, I enjoyed seeing the love in Lily’s eyes in all of your pictures. It is clear she was a steadfast companion and so cherished by you. I’m wishing you self-compassion during this very difficult time, Bethany.Jessica Binkley - January 24, 2021
Lily lived a beautiful and pampered life. She was blessed to have you as a mother. We can never keep them long enough. Losing such an important member of your family is never easy. I know you miss Lily terribly. I'm thinking about you and sending thoughts and prayers.

Love you!!

Lily,
You always looked delicious. Sorry I never had a chance to nibble on you but hope you're having fun in cat heaven.

Lily,

You've been a great kitty. Took us a while to become friends, but we became family over the last few years. You allowed me to feel at ease knowing that you were always there to keep Bethany company when I was away. I loved the way you made her smile and light up whenever she saw you. You always came up to wish me goodnight, and to make sure I woke up in the morning, mostly too early ;). I'm happy we had these years together, and wish we had many more. Love you and miss you.

I do miss Lily, too, and I shall miss hearing about her antics, seeing pictures of her on bags and in boxes, and admiring her annual birthday hats. I know Lily was the light of your life, and I am sorry for your loss. May the warmth of her memories aid in filling the emptiness you are feeling.Elaine Baker - January 21, 2021

RIP Lily - it was fate that you two found each other... and until you meet again. You were an amazing momma to her. 😘🌈

We also used Lap of Love for Yogi, and they were great throughout the process.
