Jasper was a beauty and obviously had a great and happy life. I know you will carry her in your hearts always. Pets make the world a good place. Diane
Helen Keller once said: "what we have enjoyed, we can never lose...all that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
Jasper's life was so interwoven with our own over the last 19 years, she will be greatly missed.
If God has prepared a perfect happiness in heaven for us, I know our pets will be there too.
I only met Jasper the one time, and I don't really remember him, but I know how much we love our animal pals. He loved you as much as you love him and is looking down right now, saying, "Don't be too sad! I can chase all the birds I want, scratch all the sofas I need to, and everything is made of trees and kitty litter! I love you! Thanks for the great ride!" I love you, too!
We are so sorry that you've lost your friend,but we hope you'll find some comfort in knowing that you gave Jasper a loving home,a really good life,and that you shared many happy times together.
So sorry to hear the news - I do think there is a reason that Jasper made 19 years. Something to do with the Helen Keller quote, but I think that Jas knew that she really had a couple of great human friends. Who wouldn't want to stick around.
I'm sorry about the loss of Jasper. She was an intimate member of your family for a long time. I hope you happy memories of her will fill some of the loneliness and emptiness you feel about losing her.
I'm so sorry Jasper had to leave you - I'm sure Jasper felt sad too. Perhaps, after you have mourned Jasper, you may feel like getting another kitty. When Arnie and I lost Lucky, we didn't really plan on another cat, but thru life's blessing, after a year or so, we choose or she chose us, I should say. Arnie got to know her and love her before he too, went to heaven. I'm totally glad I have Lucy for company,
Lucy and I are giving you our deepest sympathies. Joyce Wallach
