All Soul’s Day is a time I look back and appreciate the friends, family, and pets who are no longer with us.
Alan Wing was a kind, funny, goofy, gentle soul who sadly died earlier this year. I ran into Alan in the Whole Foods parking lot on a trip back to Texas a few years back. He gave me a big hug and we chatted for a while, and went our separate ways. RIP, Alan.
This year two cats named Orange Kitty left our world. One was a ferocious hunter who worked her way into my son’s heart. She followed his step-dad’s home on his birthday, and lived a long and happy 18 years. The other Orange Kitty was my Dad’s beloved companion; she was one of the sweetest cats ever.
