Remembering Eric.

 

Eric 8th April 2000 - 19th March 2013

Eight years since you had to leave us, how can it be that long! We love and miss you just as much today as we did then, and that will never change.





We love you, our darling boy.

Memorial Plaques.

Ivor made plaques for both boys after each had left us, but bugs got under the bark and were destroying them from the inside, so he made new ones and got them in place before Eric's anniversary.

The original plaques.

The new plaques.

  4. Anniversaries like these are always hard...even after many years...
    I never had the pleasure of meeting Eric, he flew away before I started blogging, but I am glad I can meet him in a different way, with all those precious memories you regularly share with us.

    Those new plaques look very nice.

    Hugs to you on this hard day. ♥

  6. Eric of the nose so red
    How can you be 8 years gone, our friend?
    It seems like it was yesterday
    That you had left and gone away.

    Over The Bridge,
    Under the stars,
    Guarding the yard,
    We remember you.

  8. Aww, 8 years or 80, I'm sure you'll always miss your dear boy. We felines grow on all y'all's hearts like a vine, dad says. This is such a beautiful post about your dear Angel Eric, and those plaques are a perfect memorial.

  21. Eight years...for Eric and 4 for Flynn. Very hard to believe. Eric and Flynn and of course you Jackie were among our first feline blogging friends.

  26. Eric's face s so expressive.....I just adore the pose in the first picture. The remembrances are awesome. Our Kali has her garden in the back with her loved oregano and beautiful flowers. A place in our hearts that is filled with her.

  27. I know the sadness that you feel in your heart. Eric left us in March and Abby left the same year in August. It's hard to believe the passage of time. In some ways it soothes off the rough edges but it never lessens the severity of the emptiness that sits there like a huge crater, and although it may be invisible to those you cannot see it, nevertheless it sits there and there are moments when you are right back to the very moment...and I know it passes and we go back to our new normal, but things are never the same. Thinking of you. Deepest purrs

  28. We didn't start reading your blog until after Eric had gone, so we are always glad when you share memories of him. Purrs as you remember him.

  31. Gosh! I can't believe it has been that long! It seems like yesterday! Eric was a unique soul and I am sure you still see him out of the corner of your eye. And feel his presence. I love the new signs! And the roses. Sending you love, virtual hugs and strength. Barb
