    Marje, Mike and Tobey, I am very new here, but I wanted to express my sorrow at the loss of Gracie. It is so evident from all these posts that Gracie was very much loved and will be incredibly missed.

    I wish I had the emotional strength to thank each of you individually and hug each of you for loving her so and being our friends. I hope in the future that I can but please know Mike and I read every word and appreciate every thought.
     
  3. Dear Marje,

    Today it occurred to me that someone else near and dear to you, (and to all of us through you), who must be devastated by this is Lupita. Please pass on a big hug from me. Beyond you and Mike, she probably knew LBG the best. :bighug:

    Be strong and bless you all

    Carl

    Oh Marje, Mike, and Tobey, I just popped on FDMB to check in, and when I saw this, my heart broke. I'm so, so sorry. I don't know what to say either. Few kitties are so adored as Gracie and few beans are so devoted. You're both rock star beans. I'm so sorry. My thoughts and love are with you.

    In remembrance of a beautiful soul and a life well-lived. She was so lucky to have known such love and devotion. May her spirit, and the memories of your time together, be with you always. Fly Free Gracie, and safe travels!

    Thank you, Carl....it was horrible to have to tell her yesterday because when she comes in the door, the very first thing she always says is "where's my sweet baby girl" and I couldn't catch her before she said it. I did not want to call her and tell her on the phone and I couldn't have spoken Thursday anyway. But, bless her heart, she cried the whole time that we were here although we left shortly after she came and didn't come back until right before she left but I know she had been crying a lot, too. She surely loved our little one and I told her I knew that in her own special way, Gracie loved her...because Uncle Carl said so. She was blessed to have been directly touched by that sweet, fiery little spirit.

    ((((((Marje)))))) I am heartbroken for you.

    Fly free and don't land softly -- somehow I know she landed with all the "thunk" of a spunky tomboy in a tutu, announcing her fiery presence to all.

    Dearest Marje
    Your words on Gracie's SS, just about broke my heart. I haven't written on here, because I'd make it all about me...how heartbroken I am.
    Sometimes, one of the reasons we love the kitty, is because we love the bean. So it is with Gracie. It was your stories of her antics, and her silliness, and your love for her, shining through, that made her so real for those of us, who never met her in person. Now it's your pain we feel, also.
    I hope Tobey is well, as he must miss his rasslin' partner.
    Bless you, my Friend.
    Barb

    Hugs to Pita too for she will certainly feel this loss a very long time if not forever . We too feel the loss and shed the tears. We too were blessed to have been touched (through your posts) by that sweet, fiery little spirit.

    Thank you for sharing Gracie with us. I hope Tobey is doing okay. Sending more prayers for you all. My heart is broken too. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    And I am certain she sent me a sign today. Her SS has a poem called "My Love is a Butterfly". I was out in the garage and turned around and there by my foot was a beautiful, tiny, delicate butterfly. I bent down to look at her and she flew up and circled my head many, many times. Then she flew out of the garage, back in, and circled my head again.

    My heart feels it is a sign.

    Beautiful, Barb. :bighug:

    A heartwarming sign indeed. Nice job Gracie :)
     
  21. Wow. I can imagine the peace that butterfly brought you.
    The poem, and all of the comments you added to her SS, and that beautiful photo of LBG... I saw them this evening. Beautiful. While it choked me up, it also brought a small smile if that makes sense.

    I'm new here, but it is obvious that Gracie is loved by many, and was full of spunk. I am so sorry for your loss, but also comforted in the butterfly that was sent to give you peace.

    (((Marje & Mike))) I've been thinking of you both a lot the last few days and hoping that you are finding some peace and solace in your wonderful memories of the LBG. I thought you might find comfort from this poem that a friend sent me when my mum passed, but the sentiment is the same for any loved one who passes. I hope it helps to heal your broken hearts in some small measure. :bighug::bighug::bighug:


    You can shed tears that she is gone
    Or you can smile because she has lived
    You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back
    Or you can open your eyes and see all that she's left.
    Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
    Or you can be full of love you shared.
    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
    Or you can be happy for tomorrow, because of yesterday.
    You can remember her and only that she's gone
    Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
    You can cry and close your mind,
    Be empty and turn your back
    Or you can do what she'd want; smile.
    Open you eyes, love and go on.

    Thank you, Suki. That is so beautiful and we appreciate you sharing something that has so much meaning to you. We’ve been focusing on all her funny little antics....it’s so hard not to....and it does make us laugh as we remember them.

    That is perfect!! Especially in light of how her SS looked the last few days. Definitely a rainbow girl.

    Tears as soon as I saw this thread. My heart is truly broken for you and all of us at LL will most definitely be impacted by the loss of Gracie's daily antics.
    Thank you both, Marje and Mike, for always being here when we so desperately needed you and thank you sweet Gracie for all that you taught us, for your silly games, for your Lupita Friday's and for bringing light and giving us laughter during our times of the "dance turmoil".

    Love you all. Behave up there Gracie:bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Oh, Marje! I've missed all of this devastating sad news until today. Who could been more loved than your Gracie? You were both inspirations to all of us whose lives you touched on the FDMB. Since we can't be there to hug you and Mike and lonesome Tobie too, please hug one another through this. How one little feisty gorgeous princess of a kitty and those who loved her could have such a beautiful profound uplifting impact on so many is incredible.Sweet Gracie's memory and legacy will live on. And you have been not only a generous and tremendous help to so many of us, but an inspiration of faith and courage, generosity and love. In my heart and prayers I cradle you, Mike, Tobie, and the beautiful spirit of Gracie!:bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:
