Remembering Sam

I would like to thank everyone for their kind emails and comments on our post Farewell Sam last week, as well as on Facebook.  I am also thankful for the lovely graphics received.


Today, I received the lovely graphic above from Pipo and Minko of WeBeesSiameezers and Barks from Mr. Jack Freckles and their human, Ingrid.  They made this as a memento and I love it.


And I can't forget the lovely graphic Ann of Zoolatry created and sent out when she heard the news.  She is so generous about doing this for everyone she knows or knows of who loses a furry. 

Since this is the second time in less than a year that I've had to deal with injuries while taking care of a sick animal, I am not rebounding well.  Sam was about 60 pounds heavier than Cameron and needed a lot of physical care.   At this time, I don't know when - or if - the Funny Farmers will return.

  10. Take care of yourself. I was watching the show "Call the Midwife" recently and I thought there was a wonderful quote about grief. This may not be exact but it was "You keep living until you feel alive again." I hope with time that happens for you. Hugs.

  23. Dearest Jan - yes, now it is time for you to sit back(or lay), chill, relax, heal and overall - take care of YOU! You NEED to take care of yourself first now so that you can take care of the other Funny Farmers. I so wish I was closer so that I could come and help. I pray for your happiness, better times ahead and your healing. All of Blogville will be here if and when you return.
