Rest in Peace Chadwickoon TedE

Eileen and Gary's TedE who was their Coon- Look-alike and got them interested in breeding Maine Coon cats passed away this evening in Gary's arms... He was 16 years old.

Sleep Soft
I shall walk in the sun alone
Whose golden light you loved:
I shall sleep alone
And, stirring, touch an empty place:
I shall write uninterrupted
(Would that your gentle paw
Could stay my moving pen just once again!).

I shall see beauty
But none to match your living grace:
I shall hear music
But none so sweet as the droning song
With which you loved me.

I shall fill my days
But I shall not, cannot forget:
Sleep soft, dear friend,
For while I live you shall not die.
