In Remembrance of Violette Noelle

This is a very sad day. Violette Noelle, affectionately known as "Sprout", will be laid to rest this morning.
My friend Monty Q has requested that we wear something violet today to honor little Violette. With a heavy heart, I have selected a special violet outfit to wear today in her memory.

I have also taken time to do some thinking, because I do not understand why sad things have to happen.
I think, when the heart hurts, we must fill it with love and kindness. Hug a friend today. Tell someone you love them. Smile at a stranger. Play with your toys. Appreciate the sun and the sky and the green grass. And keep Monty Q's family in your thoughts during this difficult time.

"Perhaps, they are not stars in the sky, but rather
openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know
they are happy."
-- Eskimo legend


May you rest in peace, sweet Violette Noelle, littlest angel.

Oh Daisy, that is a beautiful tribute. We especially like the Eskimo poem. We believe you are right and the best way to remember Sweet Violette today is to play hard and to laugh and giggle and smile and sit in the grass and hug our mommies and daddies. We are all sending our love to Monty and his whole family this morning.

Angus Mhor said...

Your violet dress is just right, Miss Daisy. I agree, it is hard to understand. I'm thankful that we have each other for comfort and to share the burden.
I'm keeping Monty and his family and all of us in my heart today.

Marian said...

Daisy - We really like to think about the openings in the sky being our loved ones looking down. We're fairly new to the cat blogosphere, but too many have left us even in the short time we've been here. It comforts us to think that they're watching over us now. Our eyes are still leaking over dear Sprout. We send love and (((hugs))) to her family and to Maxime's Mom today. And, we send many, many (((hugs))) to you and all our friends out there on the intertubes.

Alexi said...

We love your post about Violette, dear Daisy. We also love your violet dress. We love you and Pixie, too. Please be sure your Mommie gives her a bananer.

That was a lovely tribute, Daisy! I don't own anything violet, but perhaps Mom could lend me a dress just for a little while. I'm not sure boys should be wearing dresses, but this is a special occation!

Hugs to you guys.

Black Cat said...

Hello again Daisy, thank you so much for your lovely comment! They were very special kitties and live on in my heart and hopefully at the Bridge. It seemed to me that with all the sadness there has been this week it would be appropriate to celebrate the lives of those we have loved and are no longer in the physical realm. But, of course, we should also hug the ones we love who remain on this side of the veil, but I know that you know this:) xxx
