    Thank you, Fred, for your poignant eulogy. As a pet lover (we currently have 3 dogs and 2 cats), I have never known a time when I did not share my life and living space with either; and I have been witness to many a transition. I appreciate and share your loss.

    Love,

    Vince

    Oh my, tears even came here as I am mommy to a sweet little kitty, Frisco. He has been so loving, caring and right by my side the whole time I was home sick. Seems you had the same in your special friend for so many years. Dickens, despite the years, knew it was ok to transition now, knowing all is truly well.

    What a moving and heartfelt eulogy for your dear friend Dickens, Fred. My deepest gratitude to you for telling his story in a way that opened my heart and allowed me to know him without ever having met him. I weep with you over the physical loss of your friend, and celebrate the blessing of such a sacred bond. My love to you, Betsy, and Dickens. xo

    Oh Fred and Betsy and Willie and Jack, I’m so sorry for your loss! Dickens was such a gorgeous cat. I always loved seeing him during our sessions, walking across your desk. It was touching to read his story, how he came to love you all so. And love never dies. Peace and love to all of you. ♡Kathleen and Chris

    I’m so glad you and he had each other, and I got to read more about him and your relationship here – thank you. He was significant to me too ever since you shared one of your home videos. It was of the dogs, but sitting up above was Dickens. He was witnessing, and so I called him the “cat in the back”. I loved whenever I got to see him after that, so sweet and soft looking, as I get to enjoy again in your wonderful photo. Now, as always, he is the Cat Who Is Everywhere. I wish I could “pet” you and Betsy and Willie and Jack in person, but in honor of Dickens being purrfect, like his dad, and All, I know my heart felt affections for you all is what is best for the now too.

    Thank You for Dickens, and thank you Dickens
    Mike

      Hello, everybody. I am in the midst of a gigantic awakening. I’ve been in session with two special people and they were there to catch me. Lucky me. It’s more, more, more than is imaginable.

          Dave, whom you don’t know, and Julee are the ones – right there on my calendar! – who were there to catch me. I’m beginning to orient again. Wow is right.
