You see. . . Cheerio, my BF who I NEVER met and whose family I stayed with when my Mommys went away at Thanksgiving. . .well, sniff, he crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning. He had a heart attack. My eyes are leaking just thinking about it.
Cheerio never got to make the trip to California as planned. He stayed behind in India with Auntie K's folks because he'd just had surgery for kidney stones. He wasn't particularly old - 8 years is all. I know Auntie K and her family are hurting a lot more than me and I am hurting a lot.
He was a good ol' boy and I know I will miss him lots.
RIP Cheerio. You will be so free over the Rainbow Bridge. And best of all - now you will be with your California family all the time now. . .
In their Hearts.
