Those two little words seem so insignificant in the face of the overwhelming response we’ve received from, quite literally, all over the world.
We’ve received emails, texts, phone calls, and visitors to this site from, I think, every continent on the planet since Smoky died. People have made donations to Angell. People are sending cards. People are sharing their own stories of grief and loss. It’s amazing how the shared experience of losing a loved one, especially when that loved one isn’t human, can bring people together.
Equally breathtaking has been the outpouring of congratulations and thanksgiving for my new job. To finally get a new full time job within 14 hours of my cat dying in my arms was, well, emotionally tumultuous in the extreme. But, it is the job that I have been looking for. It’s the job I have wanted for the better part of, well, forever. I’m going to be good at it, and I’m really, really excited about it. I’ll update my resume once I’ve started on Monday, April 9th so you all can see where I’m working and what I’m doing.
So, for all of you who have cried with us, prayed with us, lit a candle for us, helped us cover the costs of vet bills, rent, groceries, etc. For those of you who called when you thought it might help (it did) or who forgave us when we didn’t get it together to email you or get in touch when we should have, thank you. Those words are SO small but they’re absolutely heartfelt.
We love you,
~Kelly & Geoff
