Yesterday evening, as Miranda was flying her mission with #TheAviators, we heard that our dear pal @4catsstrapski had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He had not been well for a while but his loss leaves us heartbroken.  The Candle Page is here please visit. We have added the poem from Vincent Rocket to our post.

He has been the light of his Mum’s life – like us she is probably trying to be brave – but like us she grieves deeply. Our friend @NewtTheCat wrote these words in the comments below and we thank him for giving voice to our hearts :-

Bode’s voice was heard around the world, and positively affected so many – more than his mom can ever know. Gentlest of hugs and shared tears.

Bode was a long time Twitter regular, fun and one of our earliest friends and I hope to add a tribute from his close friends, but for now – we send our condolences to a wonderful WONDERFUL friend on her loss.


some bright sunny day…….
a poem by Vincent Rocket

    Beautiful tribute. We are so very sad. Miss him so much. Losing too many pals lately. I’m trying to figure out how to follow your new site. That’s why you haven’t seen me in a long long time.
