Sooty died yesterday

I have a photo of Sooty at September 25th 2006. I never imagined she'd be gone so soon but the Universe was sending me a lot of signs as it often does. The outpouring of love and support from EDM and other yahoo groups and friends has been extraordinary.
I've spent all afternoon sending thank yous. It is wonderful to see how much we all love our pets and miss them when they go. So many people have given me ideas of how to grieve by doing my artwork and I've really appreciated the advice. I have learnt so much in the past few days from loving people.
I am so glad I did a few rather crude sketches of Sooty. In the future I'll have to ask people how you paint a black cat.
My computer has to go to the shop so no computer for a few days. I'm already shaking at the thought of all the EDM emails when I get my computer back. It will be a great way to pass some more grieving time.
Thank you so much to those who have extended their love and support.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia
PS I am so glad Sooty waited until I joined EDM and did a couple of drawings of her

I'm glad you were able to sketch Sooty before she passed, and they're beautiful sketches indeed.

May your grief pass soon, and your remembrance of her last forever.
