Forever Loved

Prancie left us at 1:30 PM today. I was stuck at jury duty and didn’t get home until 12:30, but she waited for me. David kept telling her I would be home soon. I am thankful for the 15 wonderful years she was with us. She was the sweetest girl and so full of personality.

She had been declining since last week and we wondered if she would make it to her Dad’s birthday which she did. Our world will never be the same without her, she was such a big part of our lives.

We were so blessed to have one last Christmas with her.

Rest in Peace sweet girl until we are together again.

Thank you to Pam and Ingrid for the beautiful badges.

I won’t be blogging for a while. Thank you for understanding.

  27. I’m so sorry. We love Prancie. I’m trying to remember if it was she and Phoebe who were close? If so, I bet they had a wonderful reunion. Prancie was definitely a Daddy’s girl and knew he’d give her a bit of whatever he had if she waited patiently 🙂

    1. Yes, they were close and Phoebe came to get her- I heard a Phoebe bird that morning. XO

  28. I totally understand your loss and need to stop blogging for awhile. I went through that with the loss of my beloved 18 year old Ali. It took getting a darling kitten to break me out of my funk and blog again. Take your time to grieve, We all understand and support you with prayers, hugs and POTP. With deepest sympathy, Angela and Bunty

  29. My heart is broken right along with yours………Prancie had the best life with you and I’m so happy you and David were with her when she left it. You know that I am sending you hugs and love and I hope the coming days can give you some comfort knowing Prancie LIVED in love and LEFT in love.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy

  30. Oh dear, purrs and hugs from me and dad, dear Ellen. We’re so sorry to hear about Prancie. Dad especially feels for you and says he knows just how it feels. Take care of yourself.

  31. Ellen, my heart is yet again breaking for you. Prancie lived a wonderful life filled with love and comfort thanks to you. She was so very blessed to have you, and she will always be with you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  32. So sorry to read this sad and painful news about Prancie. I hope you can find some comfort in the warm memories of a beautiful cat. My thoughts are with you, Ellen. Sending you hugs.

  35. I am deeply sorry to learn Prancie has gone to the Bridge. It is one of the hardest things we deal with- to reconcile ourselves with their loss. Each day is a new day to pull together strength to make it through.

I am thankful you were able to make it home in time to be with her. I will be thinking about you and David more than you know. Prancie is at rest and peace. But oh my she is going to be so missed by so many. She was a kitty that lived a life with people that loved and respected her so much.♥

  37. I sent you an email but also wanted to leave our deep condolences here. Our hearts are with you, Prancie was such a beautiful girl. She will live forever in your hearts and through her book as well. ♥
