Memorial Sunday Selfie

This week is a very special selfie from my dear brother Eric.
It is 4 years ago today that he had to leave us.
We love and miss him as much today as we did then, and the pain of losing him never goes.



We love you Eric, and always will.


You can see more selfies at The Cat on my Head.


Thank you to Angel Sammy and Teddy for the lovely memorial picture you made for Eric for me.

Eric left just after we lost one of our very loved kitties and so each year I remember him on "her anniversary of passing".

I know, too, that the missing them never goes away and that the love continues on, too.

Love to All of you,
Lily

So true, the missing never ends. My predecessor is still sorely missed by my new mom and dad. It was a hard decision, but dad decided to carry on with Me at the helm now. Enjoy your Sunday!!

Eric, we sure do miss you as we know that your Mom and Dad do too. We sure send everyone big hugs and send Flynn some mighty big scritches.

Kari said...

Here with us or across the bridge, we love Eric like he was our own. There isn't a day that we don't miss him.
Today brings special sadness on the loss such a beloved friend but it also brings us time to reflect on how happy and blessed we are for having had chance to know him. And, of course, time to recall all the joy he gave us. He was one of life's treasures, wasn't he.
Special love and kisses and a long hug to Flynnie.

Lovely memorial post. We miss Eric too and can't believe it's been 4 years. You are right, the pain of loss never goes away. It ebbs and flows but when you focus on it, it's as sharp as a pin. Tuck him safety and softly in your heart. Till we meet again. <3
