The following is by faithful Tabby’s Place volunteer Larry. When Larry asked me if he could be the one to pay tribute to our Siamese wonder, of course we said yes. Molly, forever Larry’s sweetheart, wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. She had sponsors adoring her from as far away as South Africa, and she will always be a part of us. Larry, thank you for loving her so well. She couldn’t have asked for a more devoted friend than you.
Our Molly passed over the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, October 04, 2009. I was able to spend time with her prior to her passing. It was difficult being with her because I knew our time together would be short. Watching her, I realized she was having trouble walking. She was not able to jump, or move around the room like the Molly I knew. Her meows were almost more than I could bear.
“Quality of Life” is a phrase that we often associate with loss and sorrow. On Saturday, I found a new meaning. After allowing me to pet her, she curled up in my lap and went to sleep. That is how I want to remember Molly, happily receiving love and attention.
Molly lived in the Community Room. She shared her time with staff and volunteers. She spent her day on desks, or any available lap. During the morning meetings, she would walk around the conference table making her presence known. We all loved Molly and she ruled our hearts. She will always be our girl.
Note: Molly was not alone when she left us. She was surrounded by love.
These words are mine. The real Memorial though is in the hearts of the people that knew and loved her.
