She's Gone

My sister-in-law died early in the morning on December 4.  I won't be posting any new limericks for a while.  I'll try to get back visiting soon, but I just don't have the heart for it right now.  I do want you all to know that I really appreciate the support you have shown me during her illness.

I do want to sincerely wish a  Happy Hanukkah to all you Jewish kitties and beans.  I'll see you all again soon.

I am so sorry for you ! You must feel awful. That you don't have the heart for cat poemes is more than understandable. I only hope for you that with the time you will feel better and it hurts less.
Thank you so much for Rosie's limerick. It is really very very nice !
