My Dear Clooney,

My world was forever changed when your heart stopped beating at 3:11 PM, Friday, July 2, 2021.  You left this world with the same graciousness, sweetness and vulnerability that you entered my life with 14 years, 5 months and 11 days ago.  You came in on a cold, snowy day in January and left the week of a record heat wave.  You and I had a love that contained everything, every peak and valley.  You taught me so much about love, in your living and in your passing.  You changed me.  You were my muse, my problem child, the squeaky wheel, my squeaky wheel, a healer, my healer and the mystery I just couldn't solve.  Even though you somehow felt you had to compete with Neytiri for my love, I need you to know that you hold the title to a prime piece of real estate in my heart and that you will always be King of my heart.  The absence of your presence is palpable and I miss you tremendously. Rest in peace, my Mancat Divine, may you be reunited with your best friend Inka at the Rainbow Bridge.

I love you.

 *My grief is running as deep as my tremendous love for and bond with my precious Clooney.  The words fall short.*


Thank you so much to Ann for the beautiful image.

*Please return for Clooney's own post: "The Third Act", in the next few days*
