At peace.

Our Sweet Chumley
(October 31, 1994 - February 26, 2012)

It hurts just as much as I always dreaded it would - we all miss him SO much and are trying to adapt to a life without him.  At some point I will write about the experience and his final days with us. We are grateful to have been able to love him to (and through) death. Be at peace little man. 
We love you.

Hey, Laura.

I'm so sad. I'm crying right now. I have tears running down my face. I'm so sorry.

It's always so tough to deal with the death of an animal that we loved so much. My dear Tom died too, last summer. He had a tumor, all of a sudden. I didn't have the courage to say something about it in my blog, and I don't know if I ever will.

But that's the price of love, right? We have these animals (or people) in our lives. We love them. We're lucky enough to have the opportunity to love them. Until they are gone, leaving behind beautiful memories.

And with Chums, the memories are not only with you, but with all of those you shared them with. We will miss Chums. I will miss Chums. He was special.

I loved Chumley from afar.
Hope Wrigley is OK and you too. Bless you all.

Oh, honey, I'm so very sorry. I can only imagine how your hearts are breaking right now. How is Wrigs handling things? (and, no, I'm in NO way trying to be funny) I'm sure he misses his buddy.

Sending you lots of hugs and kisses and love.

It was such a pleasure to get to know Chumley and his antics over these last few years. I was always in awe of how you lived with his little (shall we say?) quirks and how you managed to find the humour in them and share them with everyone. He was a real character. The thing that came through the most was how good you were to him in his life. He was truly blessed.
Good Night Chumley. You will be missed very much.You were a true original.
Hugs to you Laura

Oh my word Laura, I am so sorry! My kids will be so sad. We will also miss your sweet(?)Chumley. :(

My heart breaks for you. I know how hard it is. He was loved by all of us.

I am so sorry Laura. I know how badly it hurts to lose a loved one and wish I could do something to take that hurt away. You gave Chumley such a great life and I hope your memories with him bring you guys comfort. Take care!

My husband and I adored Mr. Chumley from Ohio, we are so sad to hear about your loss. Take peace in knowing that there is a special place in heaven for the kitties that bring us joy (and bring us to lovingly cover our furniture in shower curtains). xoxo

Hello, Laura,

I'm sorry to hear about Chumley. I loved watching him on youtube and got a kick watching his antics. I wish you peace.

Thank you for your kind messages. I have been writing, outside of the blog venue, but have been wanting to get back here more consistently. Will try to do better about that. Hugs and love to all.

This note is very late, but just wanted to say how sorry I was to read of Chumley's passing. We lost Max in 2009 and the loss was heartbreakingly difficult. I haven't been able to get back to my blog as it was so much about Max, and Maggie. It never gets easier losing a beloved friend, but you learn to live with it.

Hope this note finds you well Laura ..
