Angel Ruis

~Run free dear friend. Until we meet again.~
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still Loved, and still missed
and forever dear.

It is with a very heavy heart that my dear friend Ruis has left for the bridge. Ruis was a great friend to many and though the last several years he did not blog much he was in the hearts of many.

Please leave your message to Ruis here and I will let his mom know to stop by.

So so sorry that Ruis had to go to the bridge. He surely was a handsome boy and wish we had known him a little sooner. Just know that he was well loved while he was with you. You sure will be in our thoughts and prayers.

My heart breaks for you at the loss of your Ruis. I know that feeling well.
Following is a poem a friend found for me after I lost my beloved Pluto. It really helped me, and I hope it helps you, too.

“Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you.....
I loved you so -
‘twas Heaven here with you.”

– by Ilsa Paschal Richardson

Love, from Marilynn
and from Grace & Company, too

Dear and sweet Gracie. THANK YOU so much for this tribute for our boy!! Our adventure you know of and still on paper was something Ruis looked forward to, but he was too ill to travel so far. When the time is right for me, i think we still can make that trip come true!
Everyone commenting here also thank you for your kind and comforting words!!
Hugs and kisses to you Gracie and also to Asta, my favorite foreign woofie. xxx

We are blinking back tears knowing our wavy furred friend has crossed the Bridge. We send our healing purrs to his family, and Teri's most beloved poem of sympathy...

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

We did not know Ruis but I think he was a legend in the blog world. He sure was a gorgeous cat. We hope he's now running free and happy over the Bridge where we stay young forever and keep an eye on our beloved humans!
