This letter from Carolyn to Lakota was written on Sunday, February 28, 2016

Dear Lakota,

Thank you so much for the joy and grief , and every thing in between , you gave my life. I remember the first time I saw you at the animal shelter. So cute and little, meowing and pawing at the cage demanding its opening. Such beautiful markings. I miss how you would sit in my lap and look at me purring. I am sorry for any thing I did not do or provide for you in the past. I am a better person due to you.
