In Memoriam

I do not usually print pictures of humans, but sometimes a human deserves special mention. Terry's brother, Jeff, passed away last Saturday after a long battle with illness that came about because of a birth defect. She had flown far away to attend his funeral but is back home now.

This is a picture of Jeff with his 4 children. He was always glad to be owned by a cat and was currently owned by a cute fuzzy cat that needed a home. He was so very kind to children and animals and was a loving and gentle man who spent much time with his family. He also had 6 brothers and sisters, who all grew up with cats. Their mother was raised with cats and their grandmother - and it seems to go back for generations. Jeff will be missed by all.

Words really can't express how sad it is that your brother had to leave his family at such a young age. Those four gorgeous faces around him surely gave him much joy and comfort.

I'm not online much anymore - I'm working more than full time now (2 jobs) - so I've been a little behind with my blog reading. That's why this message is delayed. But it is sincere.

Muddy, I know this is a big loss for Terry, especially with her brother being so young. Please give Terry my sympathy, and tell her I will keep her and her brother's family in my thoughts and prayers.

Much love from Peggy in Denver
