Memories of Jimmy

"And if I go, while you are still here...know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure, behind a thin veil that you cannot see through. You will not see me, so you must have faith. I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other. Until then, live your life to the fullest. And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart...I will be there."

Big Jimmy, you came to live in my heart even though I never met you in purrson. You were my special sponsor kitty at Tree House Animal Foundation in Chicago for several years. I feel that I got you know you through your many purrsonal messages, written in "cat" but so readable by this human!

I learned just this week, 2/12/07, that you had peacefully crossed Rainbows Bridge. You are such a mellow, sweet boy and had been a mentor kitty to several who came to Tree House over the years. Now be a mentor across the Bridge to those kitties who come, afraid and alone. I shall deeply miss your kitty notes and your beautiful pictures.

In the words of the letter that came on 2/12, "Jimmy was an absolute favorite of both staff and volunteers. That sweet face, his broad boyish muzzle, his beautiful fat belly, the way he loped down the hall, rocking from side to side like a little boat - Jimmy will be intensely missed, and he will never be forgotten."

And I will never forget you either, my Big Jimmy, my precious orange and white tabby. I will see you when I cross the Bridge. And you will always be in my heart. Your sponsor purrson, Clare

2/3/08 - It has been a little over a year since you crossed the Bridge, and I know that you are well and happy and with many other furbabies. Please know that you are still and always will be in my heart. You are very special to me, and I love you and look forward to meeting you in purrson one day. Hugs, Clare

3/25/08 - Dearest Jimmy, I sure hope you had a wonderful Easter there. I miss your getting your pictures and hearing from you in your notes. I love you and always will. Clare

12/3/08 - Dear Big Jimmy, it's Christmas again and you will have a white Light of Love hung for you at Tree House this year. I wouldn't miss doing that for anything. I know you are cuddled up by the fire in the fireplace, gazing with wondering eyes at the beautiful silver and gold Christmas trees and wondering how you could get to the top-most branch! And then I see you go to the window to watch the gently falling snow just outside, knowing that you are safe and warm and cared for by the angels. I will meet you in purrson one day. I will pick you up and love you like I couldn't do here. Big Jimmy, be my special kitty angel, okay? Merry Christmas! I love you. Clare

12/31/08 - Well, another year has come and gone. Please watch over me with love, knowing that I love you so much even though we never met here. I'm looking forward to seeing you across the Bridge in God's good time. I love you. Clare

2/7/09 - Happy Valentine's Day, big boy! You are always and forever in my heart. Clare

3/3/09 - Happy Easter, Sweetie. You are forever with me until we meet across the Bridge. Clare

11/29/09 - Merry Christmas, Big Jimmy. This is your 3rd Christmas across the Bridge. We know that you dearly love the golden Christmas trees all trimmed in shining white lights. Look down at Tree House and know that you are remembered there with love and that I think of you often and love you so much. Run and play with the Christmas angels and once in a while think of me with your kitty love, okay? I love you. Clare

1/23/10 - I know that you are blessed there and having a wonderful time on the Other Side of the Bridge. I miss you even though I never met your purrson here. And I look forward to meeting you one day in God's time. You mean the world to me. Happy Anniversary, dearest Jimmy.
