Speechless Sundays: Miss you Jack...

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties 01238708

I find it hard to write about losing family members, friends or pets. Well Jack came to us when we lived in Marian Del Rey and knocked on our patio door and asked us to let him in. Of course, we did. Jack and Jill became brothers. Now Jill is by herself and bossing Wiley around....


Jack & Jill in the good old days


Here is another photo of the good old days:  Jill, Douggie & Jack looking out the window waiting for Diane to get home. Sadly, now only Jill is left of these three. It was always interesting for me to see that five minutes before Diane would get home, they either had a built-in sensor or who knows what they knew she would be home soon.

Yes losing a pet especially one that chooses you is indeed very difficult.

So sorry to hear this news, Endre. Been through this, myself, so I know just how hard it is. When we lived in New York City, our dining room had a bay window that looked out on Park Avenue from three sides. My Tutti and Frutti somehow always knew when I'd be walking up Park Avenue on my way home and each early evening they'd be sitting on the window sill watching for me.

Good morning Endre,

I'm sure you all miss Jack and so sorry to hear Jack is no longer part of the original threesome. It always amazes me how pets have a built in radar and know when to expect their parents to come walking in the door!

I am sorry for your loss. I lost my Margie about 6 weeks ago and am still struggling. It really doesn't matter how many you have.......there are those special ones.

It is uncanny the way animals can sense us coming back.  Does brighten the moment or the day for us.  M

Endre Barath, Jr. My heart goes out to you and Diane. I am so sad to hear this. More times than not I love my pets more times than people.  I was at a funeral for a friend today. They say things come in threes. This unfortunately is the third. I am so sorry Endre there are no words

Endre losing a pet that has become a loved member of the family is hard.  My oldest son has two older dogs which my granddaughter has known all her life.  It will not be easy for her when the day in the not to distant future comes.

HI Endre- I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Jack. I know that you and Diane are very caring parents to your fur babies.  Pets are family members and losing one is as hard as losing a human family member.

Oh, Endre & Diane, I am so very sorry to hear about Jack. He was such a special boy and I know your hearts are broken. Poor Jill (and I'm sure all of the pets) will miss having Jack there too. 

Jack was one lucky kitty, having lived in such a loving home. He could not have had a better family. 💔
