FOR DEAR FRIENDS and for their beloved ~ GINGER JASPER


During all my years of blogging, I've had the pleasure, and honor of meeting many
bloggers in person ~ among them, Carol and Barrie, from England, who came to our
home in Florida, spent time with me and with my dear Vic.  And of course, 
sweet (albeit flat, Jasper) came along.  Over the many years, I've also had the honor
of working on many, many photographs of this magnificent kitty ... he became a part
of my heart.  I shall miss his beauty, his charm, his antics, his personality.
I know that Carol and Barrie grieve deeply, I send my love to them.

  8. A beautiful post, Ann. Some cats (and humans!) seem to touch us deeply, and GJ definitely was and is one of those.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Carol and Barrie as well.

  17. Sweet Ann this is a fabulous tribute. We did not have the pleasure of knowing sweet G J as long as you and others did but in the years we did know him he also stole our hearts. We will miss him terribly. Our hearts and prayers go out to his sweet mom and dad...Carol and Barrie. Hugs and nose kisses
