Bridge Remembrance Day
Taylor: I'm not sure why we're doing this post today. The only one of these animals I recognize is Sam.
Buddy: The others are before your time, although you just missed Cameron by a few months.
Taylor: But who are they all?
Buddy: Beloved furries that have left us. Grayce passed away two years before the blog debuted but she is still an honorary FF member.
Cyndi: Jenny and Grayce traveled here with Jan. They were already seniors by then; not Jan's first cats, but the original Funny Farmers, even before we had a blog. Crystal and Cotton were the first local cats to join them.
Taylor: I thought Jan doesn't believe in the Rainbow Bridge, so why are we posting on it?
Cyndi: We are remembering those who helped establish the Funny Farm. They were a part of our family and we want to remember them with love and respect.
Taylor: And who are all those in the collages below? I recognize many of them because they have passed away since I moved here. Cameron and Sam are even included.
Buddy: Ann of Zoolatry has made a graphic for so many bloggers who have lost a furry over the years. These are just a fraction of those. We furries don't live as long as humans do and the losses among blogging animals are staggering - so many more friends than those below have been lost over our blogging years.
Cyndi: So Deb Barnes started the Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. I believe this is the second one.
Buddy: This is why we are posting on Sunday. We want to remember those who came before and to join the blog hop.
Cyndi: We are headed to bed and won't be able to participate until Jan returns from church because she won't tell us the password, but the blog hop is at Zee & Zoey Cat Chronicles.
