  You came to me uncertain. What a change it would be for both you and I. Brought together through sad cirumstances,we are connected. I miss him as much as you. I hold you and you understand my tears,even though you have your own ache that goes beyond understanding. Our common ground, the loss of security,love and understanding. Now we are that for one another, he would be glad to know we are together. Because you are his beautiful cat that kept him company and was his friend. Because I am his only child who loved him dearly and he was my friend too. He has orphaned us both to look after one another for all these years like it was yesterday. It all comes back to me now that you too are gone, the last tangible connection to my friend, my father. I will miss you both now, my big friend who always loved and took care of me and now my little friend who I will miss with all my heart,good-bye. I love you both.

That's almost heartbreaking. What a sad, yet happy piece. Sad for the loss, happy for being able to look through your tears and still go on with the joys and pains of life.
