We Love You Cornbread

We are heartbroken over the loss of our kitty, Cornbread.  He put up a great fight through this last ordeal, but we couldn't bear to see him suffer.  It was the most heart-wrenching thing I have ever done, but the prognosis would have been worse for him.  We we're blessed to have him in our life.  We have so many wonderful memories of him and all the silly things he did!  He is resting peacefully in a special spot in our yard where he can always keep watch over everything and guard over his kingdom!
I think about him constantly and miss his sweet face every minute of the day.  He was always right there with me and following me every step I made no matter where I went.  He was a big part of our family and we will miss him terribly.  Every day.  Every night.  We love you so much Kitty.  Cornbread, this is from Mama's heart to you, my boy....

Don't be sad you had to end my pain,
and know that you will see me once again.
God's given me a place to wait for you,
a cozy cloud and salmon too!

The angels are happy to stroke my fur,
and they all seem to love it when I purr.
I'm no longer sick so I am glad,
please don't fill your days by being sad.

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.

Today you gave something to heaven
that heaven once gave to you.
Your sweet, your precious,
and faithful companion, "Cornbread".

He'd been with you for many years,
his loyalty did show.
You loved him and he loved you back,
but now he has to go.

Do not despair for he'll be there,
when your time's at the end.
There just beyond the Pearly Gates,
awaits your furry friend.

You kissed his head, buried your face in his neck,
and whispered goodbye as a part of you died.
May heavens arms hold you, softly my love,
until Mama can hold you in Heaven above.

Cornbread crossed the rainbow bridge on Monday, August 30, 2010. 
Rest in peace my boy.

I love you kitty, and will never ever ever forget you.

It is lovely that you have so many fabulous photos of Cornbread to rembember him by and I have no doubt that by releasing him from his pain you offered him the ultimate gift of your love for him.
