My angel Jamesie Ray Layne

My sweet boy Jamesie has run off to the rainbow bridge. He left us on September 20, 2013 at 3:00 am. He was with me for 14 years and his loss is keenly felt. How do you say goodbye to someone who is such a huge part of your life? I got Jamesie from my sister Heather when he was 8 weeks old, but I had been visiting with him almost every day since he was born. He was Oreo's only boy child and when I saw him I just knew he was going to be mine. Jamesie was a silly boy when he was little. He liked to make trouble and run around. He brought so much happiness to my life. He was with me for so many important and difficult times in my life. When Crystal died. When Heather got hurt. When I found Scooby. When my Mother died. No matter what happened I knew that Jamesie would be there for me, to rub against my legs and give me head butts. Jamesie was a kind and loving cat and he was always there for me. It breaks my heart to know that I couldn't be there for him when he needed me the most. The only thing that I could do for him was to tell him to let go. So I did. I sent him to the bridge to see his Dad, Sister, and Grandmother. He will be where I can see him again one day.

Jamesie had been diagnosed with diabetes and a bladder infection on September 5, 2013. He was hospitalized for a week. He got to come home for one week before he passed away. He is not in pain anymore. He is not suffering. He is happy again and that is what matters the most to me. So, as much as it hurts to do it, I wish my sweet baby Jamesie goodbye for now. I will see him again, I just need to be patient and wait. God will watch over him and keep him safe for me. He was loved by many and will never be forgotten. Always a part of my heart and my family. Rest in peace my dear baby Jamesie. Here are some moments from Jamesie's life.
