In Memoriam







I have some sad news.

My parent's kitty, Ellie Mae (she was my friend when I lived at home) was killed yesterday morning.

My parent's next door neighbor found her body. He buried her and then told Gea-Mom & Bob when they got home from lunch, after church. Apparently some unattended neighborhood dogs ended Ellie Mae's life.

Ellie Mae has been a part of our family for 12 years. She walked up on Father's Day. Her throat was infected with "woofs". Gea-Mom & I nursed her back to health and she remained our outdoor kitty.

Since she lived outside, Ellie Mae had a "crush" on my father. She followed him everywhere. They played all the time. She was a constant, loyal companion to my Daddy.

She was one of a kind and will be sorely missed.

Goodbye, Ellie Mae.
