Tommy Kneesox walked into my back yard almost 15 years ago looking for food he ate over 2 cans of food and had bowls of water and climbed up the tree in the backyard and waited
Again we fed him, he came back a third day,
this time we opened the back door and he walked in like he owned the place
EVER OTHER STEP HE TOOK HE WOULD ROLL OVER BELLY AND PURR
I PUT HIM IN MY ARMS AND ROCKED HIM TO SLEEP
FROM THEN ON HE SLEPT WITH ME, LOVED ME AND GUARDED ME.
I lost my job 5 years ago because i was sick and for 3 years have only been able to find part time min wage work so i could not give him all the medical care he needed and i will have to live with that and i cannot forgive myself for that.
He trusted me and loved me and I let him down.
I prayed for him daily but god would not answer my prayers
HE TAUGHT ME DEVOTION, LOVE, TRUST, AND RESPECT
i WILL NEVER FORGET HIM
