Amy, Kevin, Lily and Forrest had to say good-bye to Sam, the black and white cat, today. Sam died last night. He went into the fourth bedroom and went to sleep. Kevin found him a few minutes later. Forrest had taken to carrying Sam around all the time. Sam let him. He would look like, oh well, I like this kid, I'll let him tote me.
Sam loved the backyard. He would sit and stare at the doorknob for someone, anyone to open the door and let him so lie in the sun. Lily loved him too. She finally cried tonight. When Kevin told me today, we both had tears in our eyes. They are part of your family.
