Today is December 12, 2014 and yesterday my best friend passed away. I am sad and overwhelmed with grief, yet I know this was the best outcome and God always has a reason for these things. My friend was beautiful, kind, caring, loving and always there for me, 24/7. She knew everything about me, the good and the bad, all my hopes and dreams. She loved me unconditionally all the days of her life. I knew her 12 years and wished I could have known her longer. The doctor did everything he could to save her, but alas she just closed her eyes and went to sleep. Had I realized she was so very sick I feel I could have done something for her sooner, but everyone tells me I could not have known. Most people do not understand my deep love for her nor my deep grief. I have a picture of her right under my profile picture. For you see, my best friend was named Mary Jane Doodle and she was the most beautiful and special Calico cat in all the world.
