In Memory

Hi all. I missed an important anniversary in our family. One year ago on April 29th, Bugsy passed away. I was wondering why out of the blue Cee started talking about him...the anniversary had just passed. His presence in our lives is always with us, just under the surface. I still find myself coming in and immediately turning to his favorite perch right inside the window. My heart knows he's not there but my head still says to turn and look.

I made a photo card of Bugsy. I'll never mail it anywhere just stick it in my scrapbook to look at and remember. I remember buying this image from Meljen Designs right after he passed away but I could not bring myself to do anything with it. So in loving memory of Bugsy, here is my card.
