Dear Charles and clan!

Thank you for your personal notes and guestbook posts for Princess's 7th angel day. WIth all that has been happening in my life it is makes for an emotional roller coaster, which I am sure you understand all too well.  

I am doing my best to keep moving forward and to get back on track. Kit and Bailey are none too subtle in their requests for walk, treats and attention so I cannot stay in bed with my head under the covers for long.  On the sunny but cool days it is easier to get up and get going than on the gray and rainy ones that is for sure.

I hope your own heart is beginning to heal from your great loss. I grieve with you. Take care and thank you so much for being here for us. ((()))

Have not been @ Critters too much. The sadness of the loss of my mother and Lizzie @ the same time was terrible but we all do survive and we learn how to move on. Also, the care and training of a new puppy on top of a new baby grandaughter.......

Anyway, while @ Critters and trying to "catch up" I noticed that your lovely Aunt had passed away. I am so sorry to hear that Charles as I know you loved her very much.

Also here a bit early to honor Sammy on Angelversary # 6. I know he will always be with you in his memory and spirit.

Take care, Charles,

Dear Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

I wanted to Thank you for your visits and kind posts as I am able to get onto the site today....... I had a laugh at Bentley and the "peeps" as Luke had done the same thing when he was with me... I had just bought a couple of packages and  placed them on the counter as I was putting away the other groceries,although I did see him looking in the grocery bags to see if I might have bought him something ,as he always did, I did not notice him grab a package of peeps off of the counter.I did notice that he left the kitchen but didn't think anything of it. He took the peeps and went into the living room ,opened the package and was eating  the last one before I caught him. HaHa.When I walked into the living room to see where he was ,he had pink sugar all over his mouth as well as the carpet and there was the package opened very carefully. HaHa. Although he didn't get sick, he didn't want to eat for the rest of the day.I was worried about him all night as I know thats alot of sugar but in the morning he seemed fine and when he had his breakfast, I knew he was ok. Needless to say, there were no more "peeps" left where he could reach them. HaHa.

We have to watch both Samantha and Tyson over at Granny's as they both keep a eye on the cookies that she bakes and has on the counter until they cool off at least. The two of them can smell them and keep a very watchful eye to see if they can sneak one or more. HaHa.

What these furkids wouldn't do! HaHa.

Have  a good day.

Sending Hugs through the miles.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M,

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, Charles.  I am sorry to say that I was not aware of the passing of your Aunt Edna.  I know you've spoken about her health issues before, but Critters has been so difficult to get into, and around, for so many weeks, I find most of my time spent trying to honor these amazing angel residents on the birthdays and angel days.

As I mentioned in a similar sense to Michelle regarding her father, Charles, your Aunt must has been a lovely and caring woman to have raised someone as generous and compassionate as you.

Let's hope whatever is causing Critters to be so unresponsive gets taken care of soon.  Keeping in touch with amazing people like you, Charles, and tending to the beautiful flock of angels that resides here at Critters, is part of my day every day.

Bless amazing angels Sammy, Gabby & Bob M; Charles and family, and your beloved Xander, Cupcake and Bentley.  Here's to a beautul spring 2014.

Peace & Love,

Cinnamon & Bruce

Dear Charles, Sammy, Bob M, Gabby, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

I hope you received my card and that you know I am keeping you close to my heart and in my thoughts. Sunday we hold a Celebration of my dad's life at the senior center where he made many friends and had good times. I will be remembering you and your Aunt while we are there.  It is amazing that I feel closer to people I have never met in person than to those I have and even family. Please take care Charles and know that I know and understand your loss. ((()))

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and Dear Aunt Edna,

I know the loss you feel, but when the hurt becomes a common place, again you will feel the warmth of her love in your memories, KNOW she will always be with you. As for Sammy, Gabby, Bob M and the countelss others at the bridge, you KNOW Aunt Edna is well cared for and LOVED . Lily just celebrated her 6th Birthday, and she knew. But the weather, from a nice 60 degrees 2 days ago to 29 today ... must be our angels BLOWING so many kisses. Sending our love always, Luna & her mom Nadine, Lily and Opal too

 Thank you for your kind words.....

Dear Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Thank you for coffee and your kind posts as always. Granny's cinnamon rolls are just out of the oven so am sending a few to you to enjoy."smile."

I hope you are doing some better and are taking care of yourself after the  ordeal you have been through lately. Know that we all continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers for strenght to get you through this very sad time. I am sure your kids are keeping you occupied as well as busy when you get home from work.Coming home to three  loving fur kids certainly must brighten your days...I can just see the three wagging tails and all of them happy to see you.. They say a house is not a home without furkids and I certainly agree.

Yes we have been busy rounding up furbabies needing help finding furever homes as the last pet fare we held turned out real well . Most of the ones that have been here for a few months are pending adoption. We have had two classes with the pending owners and so far all is going well... Although it always saddens me to see them leave to their furever home " as i get attached to all that come here"  I know they will have a family to call their own and that will free up kennels  for more of them needing help.

Have a grand weekend and I hope that you can get rested up.

Sending Hugs across the miles.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Bobby M, Gabby, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

You have all been on my mind and while I continue to be frustrated by the fact almost all of my posts go to review I will persist here on critters.  Spring is right around the corner and yesterday we enjoyed a lovely cool but bright and sunny day. Kit and Bailey rolled in the grass and soaked up the sun.  I hope you and the kids are well and that your aunt is holding her own. Hugs my friend.

Charles: Thanks for remembering Cindy on her special day. It means a lot. <3

03-04-2014 1:30 PM -- By: Luna,  From:  

Luna looks at the field of dreams, lifts her head as a cool breeze passes, then she notices Sammy ... sitting under the shade of the oak tree, nested in a soft patch of grass ... "dreaming" ... as thoughts of you fill his mind and his heart he whistles at the wind, sending a cool breeze flowing ... Have you felt it yet! Might nippy here in NY, we are in the teens again. Know our angels are all well, their hearts filled with our love, and even though we miss them thoughts of them can brighten up the darkest of days knowing they are there watching ...   just as the sun's warmth can be felt on the coldest of days ... Alive in our hearts they will always be, till we can each hold them in our arms again.  

I know they fill your heart as thoughts of them are daily on your mind ... know they know and can feel it too. Our angels know ... you see they have always known the pathways to our heart, that's why they choose us.  Luna, her mom Nadine, Lily and Opal too! arf arf arf

 Dear Charles. I hope things are going well your way and that your aunt is settled in. You are such a good nephew. 

Timmee died on Valentine's day.He died snuggled in my arms. It was totally unexpected. He was 14.  I posted in the forums but it still hasn't been put least I can't find it. He was such a lover boy. I miss him horribly. I know that he was greated by Sammy, Gabby and BobM.

Take care, Charles and I'll try to be here more. xoxoxo Pat

 Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, BobM, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

Thank you for your kind communications. It is friends like you who help make the transition from life with to without my dad. It is certainly a change. I hope your aunt is doing okay and that you are taking care of yourself too.

Kit and Bailey do not want to go out into the rain (we are due for a week of it) so I may need to get raincoats! Funny how swims are fine but baths or rain are absolutely not.

Thank you again for your freindship. It means the world to me.

Dear Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Stopping by on this last day of Feb. with fresh hot coffee and Doris's Friday special, "hot cinnamon rolls" to get your day and weekend off to a good start. I hope all is going well out your way and that spring is in the air. I certainly am looking forward to spring as it has been the coldest winter on record as well as more snow than I have ever seen.

Tyson and Dozer as well as Samantha, Taz and all the shelter furkids are looking forward to spring as well as they are getting bored with being indoors. It's hard to keep them entertained indoors but we try . Dozer is doing real well. He turned a year old on Feb26. My how time flies!  He gets along with Tyson and Samantha,Taz and all the shelter kids. He has a very easy going personality. He is so much like my Toby but he does have his own personality also. I am taking Tyson, Dozer, and Samantha for their yearly checkups at the vets today.I have never taken all three together but don't think ,I will have any problem as they all listen real well. I will promise them a Dairy Queen treat after their appointments. I am sure that will work. HaHa.

Thank you for your recent and kind posts as always.

Have a grand day and weekend.

Sending hugs across the miles .

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Good Friday morning Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M....... Cupcake, Xander and Bentley. Stopping by with fresh hot coffee and Doris's freshly baked Cinnamon rolls to get your weekend off to a good start.

I hope all is well out your way and that your Aunt is doing as good as can be expected. Now with your work load getting somewhat easier, I hope you can take some time for yourself. We all need to do that occasionally.

We are getting more snow today and the winds are cold. We are all certainly looking forward to spring around here.

Thank you so much for your recent visits and kind posts as always. Have a grand weekend and don't forget to take some time for yourself.

Sending hugs across the miles from here to there.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter. {That includes Samantha and Taz} "smile."

So sorry I missed Sammy's birthday.  My health sort of felt apart after Christmas & I have been going through some stuff, so I have not been online or on Critters -- so sorry.  I have been a bit worried about you and I hope that you are okay, as I did not hear from you at the holidays which made me concerned.  Just know that I have been thinking of you and "the kids" and I am wishing you well.... always.  Hugs to you.

A bit late--but wishing Sammy a very HAPPY belated Valentine B-day.

It has been one snow storm w/ice after another here and the digging out process/checking pipes/checking for ice dams leaves little time to be online. I am going to name my house Dr. Z. Ice Castle #2! :-O

Hope all is well,

♥Maddie & Lizzies mom, Sherri
