Impossible To Equal

As with any condolence card, the making of these sad markers to the loss of a precious life involves passing along love at a much-needed time . . .

Tom was a remarkable cat who lived almost 18 years, truly bonded with a very young boy in the family, and proceeded to grow up right alongside him.  One of Tom’s favorite places to hang out was the garage and his daily treks back and forth from the house eventually wore a path in the grass which the family had the great good sense to leave alone.  I hope that this card depicts the many happy journeys Tom had on his own private self-made highway.  I also hope that the family is in no hurry to re-seed . . .
