  6. Dear Kathleen, I know I’ve said this before to you, but never here. Your tribute to our own and very dear Romeow is so beautiful. HOW I wish I could write like you do. Or even THINK like you do. You have a tremendous gift. I can hardly wait to see what it is that you will write next! I am constantly on the edge of tears these days anyway, and this did indeed give me the “leaky eyes” again – but in a good way.

    It is wonderful to think that a person like you is my friend.
    Much love,
    Janet – of teh 4 kittehs

Into thougts ov mah bebeh goggie swiming in teh blu rivers ov teh skies. And running and jumping in teh white sno ov the clouds. And chasin all teh birdies up there. And wahtchin over her yard (our yard) happily frum abuve.
