Until We Meet Again - Bode




Hi Pals,

The Twitter world was reeling again this weekend because a very dear pal (Bode of @4Catsstrapski) had to cross that Rainbow Bridge suddenly. 

Bode was one of those guys who was loved by everyone who knew him.   He attended lots of the parties on Twitter, was active in the WLF group, the Avaiators, and attended Nipclub many times.   He was just fun to be around and right there if someone else needed support  or was having a tough time.    He's going to be sadly missed by all who knew him.

It hit  M and I pretty hard because in September we got to meet his lovely human mom.   She was part of the mini Wisconsin Twitter meetup that we had when @PumpkinPuddy's mom visited us.   Even tho we did not get to meet Bode, we feel like we did because we got to know his mom after spending the day with her.

We know that Bode is now riding the brightest star in the nighttime sky.  We saw it last night when M opened the blinds so we could  see out.  I like to try to remember  my pals in some manner other than crossing that bridge forever.   So in my mind I see Bode riding a magic carpet from his house Friday night up to his personal star.   If you think really hard, I'll bet you can see him too.

Bode: We love you pal and know you are having a good time on the other side of that bridge with all those who crossed before you.  We are happy you will not have to suffer, but we still feel the void of you not being with us.   We'll take good care of your mom, who is really hurting right now.   You maybe away from us, but you will always live in our hearts.   I'll be checking your star every night.  

Until we meet again......

Mario

We were so sad to hear about Bode too Mario. There are just too many crossing over the RB. Time to shut those gates for a little while.

The world is not so bright now, without out pal Bode. But the heavens are all the better for his presence, there. Bode will be safe and never feel pain or sadness again until, yes... we all meet again.

We're so sorry Bode had to go so suddenly. Sanjee's met him and is showing him around, along with the other OTRB anipals. The rest of us will be keeping an eye on his star and looking for his magic carpet.

Oh Mario,you lost a good friend and we are so sorry to hear that!!!
Yes M, Tom is almost too good at times but this time I know he had to do something for his sister or she would no dought die in that awful trailer they are in. I wish they would take care of it but sadly they will not. They have never taken care of any thing they have had so far and bless her heart she can not even walk with out a walker now!! She is really in a bad way!!
