Our sadness continued when our darling Burmese Mia passed away on 22 July. It was so unexpected and came as such a shock, especially after the death of my dear mother. Mia had only been unwell for a couple of days and we never dreamed when we took her to the vets that she would not be coming home with us. Her precious sister Chloe, from the same litter, is missing her so much. They were always together and such good friends. Mia gave us so much pleasure for over 17 years and our home will never be the same now that she has gone.
After 5 weeks in hospital my dear mother passed away on 6th July. A very independant lady who faced breast cancer so bravely three years ago. After surgery and 6 weeks of radiotherapy she declared 2007 and 2008 were great years for her but unfortunately the cancer returned this year. She was not afraid of dying and was an inspiration to us all. I was fortunate to have been able to spend a lot of time with her during her last 5 weeks and talk over all the happy times. She will leave a huge space in my life and I miss her heaps.
