The "original" Crazy Cat Lady ~ our own beloved, curly-topped, red-headed, fun loving, fabulous Carm Cole.
Lover of Maine Coons (eight of them in all during her blog years) ... docent at her local zoo ... terrific photographer ... wife and mom and sweet grandma! Oh, and a blog full of beautiful cat photos and great cat stories over many years!
We all loved Carm. And we loved her even more as she began her personal battle against multiple myeloma over three years ago, her dear husband Randy at her side every step of the way. And we loved her strength and willingless to fight each and every day, to go through every possible treatment available to her. Always with grace and good humor and with hope. Yes ... Carm gave it her all. Always.
Earlier this week, Carm put aside the pain and moved on. She has left us and we were all blessed to have known her. Her family grieves, and there is an empty place now that cannot be filled except with wonderful memories of her.
Your kind words of comfort will be welcomed by Randy, by her children and grandchildren. We thank you.
Mom had furst enkhounted The Nice Carm Lady eight or so years on a Yahoo music group list - Mom knows that prior to khytties, TNCL had SIBERIANS - so we knew she was pretty special - and as Life happens, Mom lost touch with the list and along with that, lost touch with the sad turn of events with TNCL's health - we knew she was fighting hard- but as we know from others, sometimes fighting hard just isn't enough -
We know there are lots of furry tails happy to see her again - but we also know there are khwite a few sad humans and furries now that TNCL got her angel wings -
We are sorry for all touched by this great loss -
Her blog has not been updated but woo khan see the tasty - I mean beawootiful khytties in her life -
