Alexandra is evident in all that she loved….

 

This quickly assembled tribute is for my friend and neighbor Alexandra, who passed away quite suddenly and unexpectedly. We bonded over our 4 cats ( collectively) over the course of almost 20 years. She was enchanted by nature and traveled all over to experience the wild. I know she has visited the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica and Kenya. She was planning a huge trip to Indonesia I believe, but did not make it. I really hope she can travel freely now, unencumbered and without limits. Even in the throes of shock and sadness, I am acutely aware that we are defined by what we love.  My friend loved the creatures of this planet. She wanted all who mourned her to make a donation to the SPCA. I got Jasmine (RIP) and Dex that way and I am so grateful for shelters, especially the kill free variety. If you feel led, please support the SPCA. Dex is blissfully unaware. He is sleeping in the fleece bed provided by Alexandra. She loved Dex and watched him for me while I was away. When I returned, there were cool toys and this bed. She will live on as I watch him dream….

  3. Linda, I am sure your friend will be looking over your shoulder and smiling as she reads your words,. What a beautiful tribute and I have no doubts the Universe is now her domain in which her spirit will travel freely wherever she wants to go… Alexandra’s heart sounded to be definitely in the right place .. Much love and thoughts sent in your time of grieving her sad loss from this world, But I am sure she will be welcomed back home whole-heartedly in the next.. 🙂 Hugs Sue xox

    1. Thank you Sue for words that soothe my soul. My friend was often troubled but her love of creatures was unparalleled and in that love her heart was wide open.
