, “why does he look so frizzed?”. And you peenig on my backpack, and
going on the school bus and everyone saying ewew something smells. I
remember one day saying to my brother and his friend Max how much I love
Bandit, I love, love, love , love Bandit, and Max telling me “if you love
him so much then why don’t you Marry him” and I said fine I will. And I
told my sister I am going to Marry Bandit, and she said “No, no….first
he has to be your boyfriend, and then he has to be your fiance9, and then
you can get Married to him” So I told family that Bandit is my
boyfriend…I could not figure out why they looked concerned  . When I
was a teenager and never around, I would always wake up with you in my bed.
I always use to say to you, how I wish you were human, because you would be
the best boyfriend. When I would cry, you would be there, and when I was
sick you would be there. You were there for a long time in my life. And
when I moved away from home, I always thought of you, and one day living
with you again. And then you did get to live with me again, for three more
years. I would have gotten you sooner, but at the time Stephen had
Snoogans, and he was a really hyper cat, and I did not know Snoogans well
enough at that time. I was scared of what he might do to you, and as time
went on Snoogans calmed down, and I got to have you again. On Wednesday,
February, 2nd 2012 you passed away in my arms. The pain in my heart and the
loneliness I feel, I heard will one day get better, all I need is time. I
really hope that I will get to be with you again. You were one of a kind.
You lived to be 19 years old. Even if you were to live longer, I understand
now, that there would never be enough time with you. I am thankful that I
got to have you a second time in my life. I miss your kisses and purrs and
waking up with you in the bed. I miss calling your name. I miss kissing
you, and hugging you, and carrying you in my arms, and falling asleep with
you. I miss you drinking out of my water glass. I would always have to
bring two cups of water, one for me and one for you. I miss coming home and
you being there. Reading a book or watching TV or a movie, you were there.
Your daddy and brother miss you just as much as me. Your will always be in
their hearts. Oh my Begie I really miss you so much. You really did have my
heart. I miss you and I will love you for always, I will love you forever,
as long as I am living in my heart and mind you will be.
