    It breaks my heart to write these words. Jack and Jane's beloved Karre will be setting out on his final journey on Saturday. He has been struggling recently with a serious illness and his condition has declined. Karre has let Jack and Jane know that he is tired of his struggle and is ready to rest, and they have made the most difficult decision to respect his wishes and to help him cross peacefully tomorrow. He was able to spend some time in the sun in his South African garden today, gently bathed in the tears of his beloved family. Karre's GA friends have gathered near the bird house in the garden to make ready for the arrival of the Emperor. His GA brothers, Lucci and Beni, will be there to show him the way. I know that all of the other Bridge kitties will join Bear Man, Emily, and Teddy in Cape Town tonight to make sure that Karre lands gently among friends. It would mean a great deal to Jack and Jane if everyone could send good thoughts and prayers to keep Karre company on his journey.

    Safe passage, Karre. You are loved.

    I'm SO SO sorry it's Karre's time to cross. He has lived an Emperor's life full of kindness, care and love...fly free sweet boy.

    Remember, he's not gone, you just have to hug him differently...

    I am so sorry. I hope that my Remy, also a solid black kitty, will be there to greet him - the two new kids. Remy left me to go to the bridge just yesterday afternoon. Totally unexpectedly. My heart aches for all of us. :-(

    I am so sorry to see this news about Karre. I delighted in your stories about him and his imperial presence. The photos you've posted of your garden makes that special place very real to those of us who are a half of a world away. No doubt, Karre will find peace and contentment in the garden and with his many companions at the Bridge. My heart goes out to you all.

    I am so sorry to hear that it is Karre's time.

    Remember to give him that snot halo as he passes. It's the best sendoff you can give him until you meet again.

    Jane I am so sorry to read this. It is especially poignant for me, having just lost Mannie last month to multiple health issues. I know the tears are flowing for you and your family. I so hope that all the good memories will be of comfort to you. He will always be near: in your heart, and your minds eye. We will all miss you Karre, never to be forgotten.

    Fly free sweet Karre. Mannie will be there to make sure you land softly. We will light a candle for you to guide you on your journey.

    ((((Jane and Jack))) It is with great sadness that I read that Emperor Karre is moving to a different kind of palace. I'm glad he got a sunny day in the garden with his family and the African Pride. We miss you and will be having dinner with many candles tonight. Fly freely Karre, you travel with love following you to the bridge.
  25. Nooooooooooo! Oh, damn, no.
    (((((((Jack and Jane))))))),
    I just felt my heart break, literally. I was blessed enough to meet you when Karre fell off the wagon and came back for more juice last year. As twisted as it sounds, his misfortune was my blessing, and a blessing to so many others who were not here for your first time dancing. I can't believe I'm reading this, as Karre seemed larger than life to me, like one of the Immortals. I can't begin to fathom how you are feeling. Please know that I am with you in spirit across the miles.

    Fly free, sweet Emperor. You will live forever in so many hearts.

    (((Jack Jane) I'm so sorry it is time for Karre to cross over. He will be joined by so many other GAs and welcomed once again whole.

    And God asked the feline spirit
    Are you ready to come home?
    Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
    And, as a cat, you know I am most able
    To decide anything for myself.

    Are you coming then? asked God.
    Soon, replied the whiskered angel
    But I must come slowly
    For my human friends are troubled
    For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

    But don't they understand? asked God
    That you'll never leave them?
    That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
    That nothing is created or destroyed?
    It just is....forever and ever and ever.

    Eventually they will understand,
    Replied the glorious cat
    For I will whisper into their hearts
    That I am always with them
    I just am....forever and ever and ever.

    Fly free Emperor Karre, land softly, you will be missed. wings_cat

    Very sad news. I feel almost as if Karre was one of my own, having read so many of Jane's lively and vivid descriptions of his progress through diabetes and remission and life in general. He was much loved by FDMB and will be be missed. Cyclone and Salem will be waiting for him. Big hugs to Jack and Jane.
