Earl by Robin Cornell / Mommy

Dearest Earl,

I think by now you know Kyle has joined you. Shadow will be along shortly. Then you’ll all be together again. I know you and Kyle weren’t close, but I hope you can get along now. Earl, I think I waited too long to put Kyle to sleep. I was trying to save him, hoping I could nurse him back to health, but it was not to be. I couldn’t get him to eat. He was so skinny when he died. It was so sad and pathetic, he was cold and he couldn’t hardly move. It was so unfair, that he died so young. You at least lived to a ripe old age for a ferret.

So how are you, Earl? I still think about you all the time, especially when I’m at work and before I go to sleep at night. When I have dreams about you, I don’t want to wake up. I know that we were meant to be together and that there is something special and wonderful about our relationship.

I know I will see you again, Earl. I love you, Earl.
Remember, you and Pongo
take care of the other ferrets.


Love Always,
