To all of Linda’s friends at Ten Cats …
Linda loved to post funny animal pictures to brighten everyone’s day. She’d find special pictures for people that she knew were partial to particular animals. For me, it was Pugs. For Happy, bunnies. And, even when she was feeling her worst, she wanted those pictures posted, right up until it was her time to leave this world. I suspect that she would want everyone to continue to enjoy the pictures and continue to love and care for animals that need us. And, what better tribute to the great, loving, caring and fun-loving lady that we knew, who faced so much adversity with strength, resolve, good humor, love and caring more for others than herself, and an incredible feistiness that I could only hope to emulate.
I cried all day yesterday, especially every time I thought of her good-bye picture. Now, I want the joy she brought to us to continue. I think, as a tribute to Linda and to Ruth, the pictures should continue on the forums. I believe, truly, that she would be laughing and applauding each and every one (even if some are re-runs)!
