Love Big, Y'all

Don Vito Curlyone 2.?.09 - 11.27.09

I just found this pic of Vito and me and it made me sad and happy all at the same time.

This was taken on Thanksgiving, the night before he died.

He spent his last days in my arms or curled up with his BFF Piggy. I feel very lucky for that - that we all had one another.

I am thankful he came to live with us for the few short months he did. He was such a blessing!

Life is very, very short.

Love big.

It's the only way.

OXO

MomAllison - what a beautiful pikshur. Vito was as lucky to have you and Grover and Piggy as you were to have him

A great photo to remember Vito's life. There is nothing like giving and receiving love, even if for a short time. Purrs and tail wags.

"Love big" Yup. Vito was lucky, he knew love before he went to experience the joys at the Bridge.
Hi Piggy, hi Grover!

I bet what comforted Vito in the end was to hear YOUR heart...
