Special Edition

In Memory Of Echo
He khrossed very suddenly this (Wednesday) afternoon - his mom and dad suspect aneurysm or heart attack - his family was with him when it happened and they tried CPR but he was gone -
His mom had shared this pikh of him a few weeks ago - she felt he was looking fur his buddy Meeka who khrossed in July - well, now they are together again - just like C$ and Miss Opy
Our sekhond walk of the day was filled with Mom babbling and murmuring and sniffing bakhk tears
We thought of Echo
And his family
I asked the geese to kharry a message as far as they khould
Safe travels Echo - Mom has a khandle lit and I had peas in your memory as my after dinner treat

Please keep Echo's family in your thoughts - the shock is - well, just as one would expekht - just numbing - just plain numbing

Hugz&Khysses,

Khyra and Her Mom

The Daily Echo said...

Dear Sweet Khyra -
Thank you so much for honoring our Echo. The pain is still very raw and I honestly wonder how I'll ever get through this. I've often wondered whether it's worse to watch a beloved pet drift away slowly, knowing the end was near - or whether it was worse just losing them one day with no warning. I've experienced both within a period of just a few months and still can't answer it. My pain is indescribable. The timing is uncanny. In my heart I believe he missed his Meeka so much that he couldn't bear to be without him. Meeka was Echo's mentor ever since day one when Echo bounced into our home at just a few weeks of age. As the recent picture showed, there was no doubt he missed his friend. Echo collapsed in front of our eyes in our living room after running joyously up the stairs with a bone in his mouth to greet my son. That was it. He was gone that fast. Scott didn't make it home in time to say goodbye. It is possible for a heart to break....ours are now. I've spent the morning crying, wandering aimlessly through the rooms collecting what's left of my baby. I'm taking it one hour at a time. A priority for us is to help Shyla through this. Echo was her rock and helped her through some severe anxiety issues. We are concerned as we see her looking for him. We showed her his body yesterday but I don't think she understood. Her well being is our first priority and ultimately will pull us all through this tragedy. We appreciate everyone's words and thoughts.

Echo hasn't posted since Meeka died, so we wouldn't have heard about Echo's passing if we hadn't seen your post. We are so sorry!

Godspeed sweet Echo. May you wear your Silver Harness with great pride. I'm sure Meeka is happy to have his brother with him.

My thoughts are with Echo's Family! We have suffered similar sadness this year! We lost our twin cats! One in July and one the Monday before Christmas! They were both 16 so a good age! But we were expecting Fluffy to go when her brother died in his sleep. After he died she seemed to pick up and we hoped we would have her for a while longer. She went very quickly one day her legs stopped working the next she was dead. We are relieved they both died in their sleep and did not have long drawn out illnesses but the hardest bit is that our puppy is missing them very much! We are getting a rescue cat in the next couple of days and it helps to know we will be giving a cat a happy home! We do hope that he and the dogs will get along! It helps to have a cat coming to fill the empty space our 2 pussies have left! I do hope that Echo's family will be able to find some comfort in the fact that e didn't suffer though I'm sure like our cats he and his mate will be sorely missed! it is also so hard when it happens at christmas! as I said our thoughts are with you all xxx
