Our cat Jeckle has been a wonderful companion and will be very much missed.
He is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge until it's time to cross over.
While he waits there, he has his brother Heckle to play with again.
When his family joins him in time, we'll find Blues there too and all of us
together will cross The Rainbow Bridge.

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep
Then you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle, can't be won.
You will be sad I understand
Don't let your grief then stay your hand
For this day, more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We've had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer, so
When the time comes, please let me go.
I know in time you too will see
It is a kindness you do to me
Don't grieve that it should be you
Who has to decide this thing to do
We've been so close, through these years
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
