It's Been Three Years

It doesn't seem possible, but Roy has been gone three years today, July 4, 2014. As I celebrate Independence Day in our country, I also celebrate our  57 years together and our precious daughter and son and his family. I remember Roy standing in the doorway of my studio saying,"I'm so glad you have this room!" So I enjoy thinking of the pleasure it brought him as it still does me.

He always loved to raise a garden and kept beautiful flowerbeds. He had a bumper crop of tomatoes in 2010 but had so many falls into the tomato vines and cages that I wouldn't let him plant again in 2011.
His last spring he could still walk all over the yard and pick flowers to bring to me in the house.
Now my three kittens keep me company--not the same, but I am thankful for the companionship and entertainment they provide. They remind me that I am still needed.

Martha, I can't believe it's been 3 years. Hugs to you, and love the photos of the kitties below.

Thanks, Holly. As another kitty lover, you know how much joy these furry critters can bring!

Hugs to you from Down Under. What lovely memories even though they might bring a tear to your eyes, but happy tears for a beautiful relationship.

Time passes so quickly. I miss him and enjoy remembering him but also enjoy our lives now. You are so loved and valued.

what a touching tribute. I know you miss him so. What a union your post showed to us. It's so nice that he valued your studio space and what you do artistically. LeeAnna Paylor
