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......
