  7. Well I for one, was thrilled to do the auction and it did my heart so much good to see all the people pitch in and help in so many ways. We certainly send many purrs and prayers your way Ann and love all the pictures. You have been very busy. Take care.

  8. So sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. This was such a beautiful post with the photos of Vic and his beautiful grandchildren. Sending purrs each and every day to you and your family. The cancer is bad and those that have fought it and are fighting are also in my prayers. Also, to those wonderful folks at the Moffett Center who were there for my mom's brother when he needed them a big THANK YOU. There is always hope and we all can hope that one day cancer will be something that once was and is no more.

  9. We keep sending our best purrs to Poppy Vic. Is there a cool Livestrong kitty banner we can put on our blog ?

  10. You are in our thoughts and prayers, Ann.

  13. Ann, please know that you and Poppy Vic are in our thoughts and prayers. We continue to send big purrs and headbonks your way. Cancer sucks and the emotional toll on yourself and your family can seem overwhelming at times. I've gone through it myself and continue the fight -- and though my case is nowhere near as bad as Vic's, I can empathize, and wish I were there to give you a big hug.

  14. You are always in our thoughts dear friend. We both must be brave and strong, something that is so hard to do!

    Hugs, Toni and the girls........
