Remembering the "Sunshine"

“Loss and possession, death and life are one, there falls no shadow where there shines no sun.”

 Hilaire Belloc

I first heard this quote while watching the movie "Catch and Release".  Kevin Smith's character did a beautiful reading of it in the film.  On Wednesday Scott and I lost our beloved Festus unexpectedly.  It's been a painful time for both of us.  This quote popped into my head and reminded me that it wouldn't be so awful to deal with if it hadn't been such a great, loving friendship.  Here are some pics that reflect the sunshine of Festus.

Soaking in the warm sun and dirt in last springs garden

Enjoying a spring sun bath.

Enjoying the smell and feel of a new carpet

Enjoying the deck with Dad

Taking a lovely nap

Soccer anyone?

Enjoying the feel of sun warmed pavers

Hanging out with Sissy

Hiding in the closet on Dad's clothes

Giving Pa a kiss

Trying out a new bed.

Our faithful companion, loved evermore.
