We are joining today’s blog hop with Brian and his family to celebrate one of our oldest friendships, with our friends Roger and Linda who live in England, and pay tribute to the lovely cat they have lost.

Mum was bridesmaid at Linda and Roger’s wedding, which still brings back joyful memories so many years later; and on a visit to England a few years ago, we enjoyed visiting them and catching up. We met Ruby then and it was with great sadness that we heard a few days ago that Ruby had suddenly died in an accident.

Ruby was as loved, and spoiled as any cat I know and her death has hit her family hard. Linda and Roger have lost a family member and we hope that this tribute can be our memorial to a wonderful cat who meant the world to two of our dearest friends. The memorial notice below says more than we ever could about the loss of a dearly loved cat who now waits for her mum and dad across the Rainbow Bridge.

Marjorie and Harvey Button
Thankful Thursday
