Hi Greta, I hope you and Ingrid are holding up okay. You say you've wondered if a belief in God or religion would be helpful at this time, and this immediately made me think of a song by George Hrab which he wrote after he lost his dog, and this is something it focuses on. It's almost guaranteed to make you blub, but I think you'll appreciate knowing it. The song is called "Small Comfort" and the lyrics are: I don't believe in heaven and I know that there's no hell. I don't think you've gone anywhere and I guess that's just as well. 'cause I want to remember the last look in your eye It was the best and worst thing to get to say goodbye to you. They say we're not supposed to comprehend but I wanna know more. Being there with you at the end was a pain I had hoped for. Did you know where you were going? did you like the time you'd spent? I wished that you'd stayed longer but that's not how it went. Now I know there's no forever but of all the hearts I've met I think the place we ended up was as close as one could get. Did you? They say we're not supposed to understand that doesn't help me. Watching you leave by my own hand were the cards that were dealt me. Some would blame the dealer some would blame the deal Some would make up stories that never could be real. I hope when you left you were glad to be back home I think that you knew you would never be alone. I've no need for heaven or some eternal bluff I prefer what's real and what we had here was enough. I'm glad I get to miss you but that you can never miss me. Thinking you'll wake up and see us is your eternity. Small comfort. I miss you. I miss you. I lo... [song deliberately cuts mid-word] ----- Lydia sounds like a wonderful cat. Thank you for letting us celebrate her life with you.

Ingrid and I have some sad news. Our cat, Lydia, died of cancer this morning at the age of 13. She had been getting chemotherapy for the last few weeks, and for a while was doing somewhat better; but on Wednesday night she stopped eating, and her appetite never returned. We took her in to the vet...
