Smokey Joe-my beloved feline companion and best friend
You and I were a match, a team, a feline companion and friend. You amazed me with your talents, riding my shoulders, perched like a panther in reckless solitude. So confident, so proud! The short five years we were together, just you and I, will never be forgotten. You're in my heart, where memories flourish. The void of losing you will never be fulfilled. Smokey Joe, you were my silken blue furred ?Kit-teh?, my ?Baby Boy? the Strength of Light which shown down on me. Thank you for being a 'season' of warmth, beauty, wisdom and understanding. The affection and tenderness you've shown me has uplifted my world in times of hardship, sickness, and pain. You were there to calm my fears, purr through the years, and show me the way. I learned so much from you. Forever will you be in my heart, my beloved One.
