|Chuck loved this beddy!|
We created a Chuck shrine, which consists of a framed photo, and we talk out loud to Chuck. The presumption is that he will visit 'home' during the 49 days after his passing, to observe us and recall his life. We honor him with our loving words and this allows him to remember everything, and will help him move on to his next life. After the bardo period, we will rearrange things to suit living with Angel alone, such as removing a couple of litter pans, uncovering the chairs that are draped with blankets under which he loved to sleep, and dispose of his medicines.
I suggest that you search the interwebs under author David Michie, where you can read about bardo in his blog dated August 5, 2017. Mr. Michie has written many books, but we cat people may know his "The Dalai Lama's Cat" series most of all.
Again, thank you for the kind thoughts and prayers.
