Ann from Zoolatry lost her beloved husband yesterday. We loved his blog, Cat in the Bag. Politically we were frequently on the same page. The cartoons and images he found to post were delightful. It was one of the blogs we looked forward to each morning. He would have four or five or even on Caturday perhaps six or seven images posted. Always a quick look and once we surprised him by knowing that the guess the location picture was Leavenworth Washington. He didn’t expect that one to be an easy one.
I wonder how many people we touch like that. We’ve never met him but his passing leaves a tiny gap in our life–so tiny compared to Ann’s huge loss. He had several regulars who made comments and those like us who just scrolled through and maybe made a note or commented sparingly. We wonder how many other lives he touched. We wish we could touch lives like that.
Vic, may the Gods speed you on your journey to better places and comfort those you have left behind-
