I'm so sorry for your loss.  I lost a flame point Siamese two years ago. I  had 
named him Taco even though he was rescued from a vacant lot outside a Pizza Hut 
Restaurant.  I had him for about 2 years.  Then he suddenly stopped eating. He 
was diagnosed with lymphoma.  He hadn't wasted away and didn't seem to be in 
pain.  I  thought we still had some time.  However, I came home a week after 
his diagnosis and he was asleep forever.  I still haven't stopped crying.   
Such a beautiful boy and so patient with everyone.  He bonded to the other 
FeLv+ cat I had at the time, Smooch. Less than three months later, Smooch began 
wasting away, even though he was eating.  The vet couldn't figure out what was 
wrong.  Smooch passed away in a month after that.  He also went quietly to 
sleep.  I'm not much of a believer but I'd like to think that those two are 
together somewhere.  Hugs to you for taking care of Orlando when most people 
would have denied him his few years
 of love and compassion.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Picked up Orlandos ashes today

It has been one week since I took Orlando to the vets for the last time. 
His tumor had gotten large enough to be causing him pain and he had stopped
eating.  He was such a wonderful cat, my loving flame point Siamese
boy.  The first time I met him in the rescues FeLV room he reached up and
gave me a hug.  From then on he was my boy and I can't believe he is gone
and I will never see him again in this world.  He was about 10 when I
adopted him and that was four years ago.  He would come up and bite me in
the butt for attention when I was working on the computer.  If I got up at
night to go to the bathroom he would accompany me.  Always.  I guess
that was how I knew it was time.  On the last night he didn't do
that.  He will be SO missed.  I hate hate hate this disease.
