Return ...

I collected Diamond's ashes today from his Veterinary Surgeon. His remains were separately cremated by the Animal Welfare League. I intend to scatter them in his garden when a couple of his closest human friends can come around to participate.
So far I haven't informed the fish, although they seem to have guessed that something has happened. Their chief concern seems to be that they are fed regularly twice a day. Diamond would notify me if I was late. Perhaps they miss him jumping around when I sprinkle their special goldfish pellets, although he hadn't been agile enough to do much of that for a while.

How lovely and fitting that Diamond's ashes will return to his beautiful garden. His special place made all the more special. We know he will be there to comfort you as you work through the transition.

We are glad that Diamond is back home with you, Lynettea. How nice that you'll be scattering them in his garden, which is where we -- in our hearts and minds -- always picture him.

The fish surely know that something is up. Hopefully you will not be too late with feedings without Diamond's supervision.

Purrs and headbonks to you, dear friend.

I am sure that is exactly what Diamond would have wanted.

It is hard sometime to collect the ashes. We are thinking sweet thoughts of you and Diamond.
