ALL OF MY FURBABIES ARE BURIED IN MY YARD, BEGINNING TO RUN OUT OF CEMETARIES 
AFTER 34 YEARS.  BECAUSE THEY ARE "STILL" WITH ME, I CAN GO OUT AND VISIT WITH 
THEM WHENEVER I FEEL LOST.  IT HELPS SOME.  I NEVER HAVE STOPPED MISSING THEM 
AND CAN SEE THEM IN MY MIND'S EYE.  I SWORE THE FIRST TIME I WOULD NEVER ADOPT 
AGAIN, BUT THEN ONE SHOWS UP OR THE VET TELLS ME ABOUT ONE THAT NEEDS A HOME.  
I AM A SUCKER FOR LOST CAUSES AND ANIMALS SO I TAKE THEM IN.  THEY NEVER TAKE 
THE PLACE OF THE ONES LOST, JUST MOVE INTO THE ROOM IN MY HEART NEXT TO 
THEIR'S.  GOT LOSTS OF ROOMS IN MY HEART.
