The first and definitely foremost for me is my Mom. I still miss her so much every day that it hurts, even after 2 1/2 years. She was my very, very best friend.
Also in memorium to:
Uncle Kevin- who took his own life 2 weeks ago
Bruce- an excellent equine mentor and even better boss and friend
And those family members who were gone before I was born but are not forgotten
And my beloved childhood pets-
It never stops hurting, My mother who has been gone since 1977.
My dear grand pa.
My dad who I never knew.
My dear Uncle Mike
And my beloved pets,
And my heart Kitty Punkin
And My equine Kids
Someday we will all be together again.
Elizabeth Margaret Nielsen (went "Dancing" Sept. 2/08)
Happy early Birthday on May 27 to my cherished 12th Rose
I'll love you f♥rever too.
Lily (a little stray kitten)
My heartless cat-hating father would not allow her even one night's shelter. She froze to death under my mom's car. I was only eight and I did not know it was possible to freeze to death. She has haunted me all my life and will to my dying breath. I grieve her now just as much as it happened today. One day, I will apologize with all my soul to her little face. She may forgive me. God may forgive me for not defying my father and sneaking her back in. I NEVER will. Bask in the never ending warmth of God's love, sweet Lily!
My treasured animals. I could look into the eyes of each one and without lying, say to them, "I love you most of all above all the others because of this about you..."
Canary: Ringo - the first animal who loved me back
Cats: Cuddles, Selina and her kittens, Penny Comfort & Shadow. MOST OF ALL: Silver Charmer (Russian Blue) saint of a cat who loved and welcomed anyone who came into his home. I lost him to cancer on March 2, 2012. Silver was/is the the love of my life. I would rather have lost ANYONE other than him.
Dogs: Honey and her daughter, Sunshine.
Horse: The best flaxen chestnut Morab ever, Mandy. She taught me so much and was so forgiving of my mistakes.
