Remembering Sweet Praline with a Smile

Today is one year since I helped Sweet Praline to the Bridge.  I admit I've had some tears as I remember those last few days with her, but I wanted today to be a celebration of her life and how she helped everyone smile with her "diva" attitude.  Part of me wants to reminisce about those days, but the other part wants to live in the present and future with Truffle and Brulee.  Sweet Praline will always be a part of my life and I'll always smile when I remember her "happy face" pout.

Wendy, of Wendy's LOL-Spot, sent me the following graphic of Sweet Praline for today.  I both smiled and cried when I saw the graphic because the play on words would be exactly what Praline would say.  I'm sure she is ruling the Bridge everyday and demanding that all of her wishes be met.

Wendy had a wonderful way of showing Sweet Praline's diva attitude on the LOL-Spot blog.  I thought I'd share those with you again in hopes that they'll bring a smile to your face as we remember Sweet Praline.  Thank you, Wendy!

























Re-posting these helped me to smile today!  You'll always have a special place in my heart, Sweet Praline.  Thank you for sending Truffle and Brulee to me to help heal such a huge hole.

My human never really reminisces about the cat before me, but not a day goes by that she does not think of her.

Oh Wendy,that was the best. We all love Sweet Praline and miss her. This was such a great tribute to her. Good job to you Mom Paula and Wendy and to those two new diva's Truffle and Brulee. Take care.

Purrs and (((hugs))) to you today, as you honour the memory of beloved Sweet Praline.

We loved seeing all of Wendy's LOL pics.

Our mom doesn't cry too often anymore over angel Annie (or Chumley), but she still thinks of them both daily, sometimes with sadness, sometimes with a smile.

No Being we have loved is ever truly gone, they're in our hearts as long as we draw breath.

Peace and Blessings.

Such a fantastic tribute to the best Diva of all time! We all miss that girl and we can't help but smile every time we think of her.

We loved looking back at Sweet Praline's pictures that Wendy made for the LOL blog. We are sorry that Mum didn't do the Diva with us - it went out of her head (like most things we fear).
We are sending lots of purrs and are sure that Truffle and Brulee will give Mom some extra special cuddles.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I really enjoyed this post, and looking at some of my own LOLs. Sweet Praline was always a favourite of mine specifically because of her diva attitude and her pouty little face. She's so adorable.

And she is captured here for PAWSterity FURever!

I hope you find more joy than sorrow in this day of celebration.

These photos and their captions sure made "The Boys" and me smile real big.

You weren't kidding when you said she was a Diva!

Love how Sweet Praline just fills you up with love.

We're keeping you close in our thoughts, as we are sure you keep her. But boy was Sweet Praline a sweetie to send you Truffle and Brulee.

caspersmom said...

What a sweet reminiscent for Sweet Praline. I wonder if I will be able to do the same a year from now for Casper. It doesn't seem like it's been a year since she passed. Thank you Paula, Truffle and Brulee for stopping by and giving me your condolences for Casper. It was really appreciated.

Faith Shen said...

This is a great tribute for her. we miss her so much.

in reply to your comment, her welcoming banquet was a blast! she was quite the life of the party! she spent a few days at my mansion before moving into hers.... i honestly think thats where inigo's been lately! i still see her every day at the reflecting pond and out in the fields! we usually all gather at the pampering salon every week or so (yanno us long furred kitties need special attention!). please know she misses you tremendously but shes doing good. shes adjusting more every day and we're seeing her more and more. she, like me, just needed some time.
