Goodbye, Marion…

Today, we said goodbye to Marion:

We adopted Marion back in October of 1991, and we’ve shared two homes and eighteen and a half years together. Marion was there to greet each of our three children when they arrived home from the hospital. She was pretty successful in ignoring them for most of the past thirteen years, but of late she had decided that Emma was calm enough and had a big enough lap to be worthy of sitting on. Occasionally, Clara qualified as well. Even sometimes Tyler, though not as often.

We will miss Marion’s gentle spirit. We will remember her younger days of playing fetch and volleyball. She was a good kitty. We know that she’s in a better place now, without the pain and suffering of her last few weeks. We love you, Marion, and we miss you.
