ABC Wednesday: the Letter 'D'

Here are the companions on my late husband's chair waiting for his return. Both Slick  the cockatiel and Dakota the Siamese grieved when my husband died.  Because Slick was allowed out of his cage whenever someone was at home, he walk down the hallway, looking for Charles.  Dakota did the same.  A member of our family who taught science in high school offered to adopt Slick.  He thrived in the classroom because I'd had him in my classroom until I retired just seven months before Charles' death.

'D' for Dakota,
dearly departed feline,
graceful cat, he's missed.

How very poignant and moving. I have 2 chairs which were my mum and dad's. I can picture them sitting in them now. Dad died in 1986, mm in 1994. We have the chairs in our home now and are a source of comfort. If I am worried I always imagine mum or dad sitting in the chair ansd sharing my thoughts.
In another post today somebody used theor "Dining Room" as a subject - I said how fascinating to do the next round based around our homes. What do you think?
Thanks so much for this post, it is very humble and moving.

Denise,
I, after decades, can still picture my mom in her high back chair looking so regal to me. Thanks for the kindling my warm memory with your recollection of your parent's chairs.
I like the idea of things around our home. Thank you for the kind words.

A sad story, but heartwarming too. Animals are just one of the greatest gifts.

Have a terrific day. ☺
