In Loving Memory

Waiting for John

Skeeter was allowed to leave this world July, 2002. Like every cat, Skeeter was special. As is typical of a "set-in-his way bachelor" he was the perfect companion for his human roommate. More like father and son, than cat and master, the two of them knew each other's wants and needs. Able to give each other space when needed and able to give affection when that was needed too. It is lonely here on earth for the buddy you left behind, and only he knows exactly how much love it took to let you go when it was time. Your apartment is so much less without you in it, but we know that God put up a special "Beware of Cat" sign for you wherever it is you choose to perch waiting for your dad and buddy.

If It Should Be

If it should be that I grow weak
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then you must do what must be done,
for this last battle can't be won.

You'll be sad, I understand.
Don't let this grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
your love for me must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so.
The time has come, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend.
And please stay with me to the end.
Hold me firm and speak with me,
til my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see
the kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
from pain and suffering I've been saved.

Please do not grieve,
it must be you who has this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years.
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
