As it has done for me, this story will ease your pain when a beloved pet dies.
When I was little, growing up on the farm in central Missouri, I was very much alone. Outside of the great-aunt and great-uncle who raised me, my only companions were the dog and cats. But each spring we had a new litter of kittens, and playing with them was my joy, the happiness in my life. I loved each one with my whole heart. And every year they died. As each one sickened and then died, my heart broke all over again, time after time. Rocking me to sleep in the big, old rocking chair, my great-uncle told me stories about my lost kittens playing together in a hollow tree deep in our woods. Although I didn't know it then, he was telling me that, while they might be lost to me, they had everlasting life with each other.
This is not my story. The basic concept comes from those long-ago bedtime stories told by my great-uncle. If they had not been lost from my memory, I would have told them but, since they are, I have created characters and a story line based upon those long forgotten tales.
Those stories changed my life. And, truth be told, I still believe them today.
You will never forget this story. It might change your life as well.
