Oh, Bill, no!!--wonderful Reggie!!! What a loss to our world,
and what a dear, dear loss to you! Reggie was fearless, a mighty hunter,
and a friend to cat and man. He was playful and delightful. When you moved
west, leaving behind his best cat buddy and his neighborhood freedom,
he submitted to the harness.
Above all, he had such heart.
I'll never forget his keeping watch
at Carolin's side or chair back,
lending her the comfort of his
loving presence. Reggie leaped
tall fences in a single bound.
His like will not be seen again. Farewell, dear Reggie; leap the fence,
and go to Carolin. Love, Julia
