Dearest Eliot,

I believe you knew how much you were loved, especially by your parents, Melinda and Clint. I loved you very much too. In fact, I nearly stole you from them! When I met you in 2005, I almost packed you up to take you home with me! But it worked out for you to stay with my sister and brother-in-law. You were loved so much by them, your brother Blake and your friend (and sometimes sparring partner!) Rossetti. I take comfort that you are with Blake now, finally reunited. You were such a wonderful cat, Eliot. I will miss gazing into your beautiful eyes and having “conversations” with you. I am so grateful that Melinda and Clint rescued you all those years ago and you got to live your life in such a loving home. For all the love they gave you, you loved them back! You will be missed, my sweet Eliot.

With great Love and Gratitude,
