Help saying goodbye

Last week, I had to euthanize a special kitty named Tiny Tim. For helping me care for him in life, my deepest thanks goes to Drs. Tom Strolle, Melanie Curtis and Susan Murphy — and to Cheryl Wicks for her generosity to me and Tim through the years.

For helping me bear the burden of his death, my deepest gratitude to Dr. Curtis, who helped me see that I had done all I could, and that it was all right to let him go, Dr. Linda Reznicek, who guided him over the Rainbow Bridge, and Derek of Grass Valley Vet.

Thank you.
