Good-bye Asuka

AsukaAsuka died tonight on April 17, 2012 at 10:35pm. She was born on July 7, 2003.

She was the brave one. When she came home with Chie and Niea, she was the first one to come out of the downstairs bathroom and look around. She loved eating Goldfish crackers and tuna. She loved playing with cardboard boxes and string. When I held her like a baby she would grab my arm with both her hands and hold me tight.

The night before she slept with me on the recliner. She climbed out of the kitty bed next to me and fell into the blankets next to me. I held her tight the whole night. During the day I took her on a walk around the neighborhood wrapped in a towel so she could see the trees and leaves and sky, feel the wind, and hear other people and the world. She was too weak to move her head but I know she could see things, and I told her how much I loved her and how much I would miss her.

She died in my arms.
