I just got this email from LeeAnn and thought it was only right to share it with those of you who were so caring, kind and thoughtfull throughout this terrible, heartbreaking incident. Thankyou so very much everyone. You have hearts of Angels
Love Deb

Dear Friends.
My most very beloved son Cappy has passed to Rainbow Bridge this afternoon at 12:07 pm. My most beloved child started failing 2 days ago & as of yesterday’s vet visit his temp was 105 his liver & spleen enlarged & he had dropped 7 lbs. He was lethargic & not at all interested in anything. Over the last 2 days he had all but stopped eating. I was happy to be able to get bite size bits of cooked chicken breast into him.
Today our very last day together we went for a long slow walk in the pouring rain just up to the end of our street & back. The rain tried it’s hardest to compete with the tears pouring down my face but lost that contest. I knew the time was up for my boy & a decision had to be made. I knew we had come to the end of the wonderful road we had shared together the last 2 years. We came home he ate 1 cup of chopped chicken breast & had our morning cup of coffee that he’s always loved with 2 sugars & 2 creams for this boy of mine. I then called the vet & told them we were coming. His passing went exactly as I wanted it to for my darling boy. I held him close to me as the first sedative took affect then he passed over so very gently held very close within my arms. I do know Cappy passed knowing he was so very safe so treasured & forever loved. He was the most amazing special boy who managed somehow to survive the trauma of his early life. I do believe he was saved from euthanasia at the shelter he was in because his soul & heart was predestined to find his life time match in mine. My heart is so completely shattered. My treasure, my son child, who was the extreme joy & love of my life, is for now gone from my arms but I do know I will hold my boy again one day.
Cappy Jarvis aka Captain Jarvis.

“And not all the powers of death will ever keep my heart from yours.”

I have got to stop reading these things at work. It's now raining in here, too. I'm so glad he had two good years. At least he now knows the meaning of love.

I saw this this morning but just couldn't reply. The line "No matter how deep my sleep I shall always hear you" did me in. Now that I've composed myself somewhat , please let LeeAnn know I am thinking of her, and also of you Debbie. {hugs}

It might as well be raining, so great are my tears:(:(:( Oh, I'm so sorry LeeAnn:(:(:( How blessed were you and your beloved boy Cappy, the one and only Captain Jarvis, to have known such an exquisite love. I know he left this earth with his heart filled that love. Wait there patiently at the Bridge for your Mommy precious Cappy, until she holds you in her arms once more. Until then, your love light will forever burn brightly in our hearts. My deepest sympathies to you dear LeeAnn. And thank you so much for sharing your beautiful boy with us. I will remember him, always. Love, Sandra, Cody and Star

I am so very sorry, but can feel the love you had for your boy in every word.

Dear Cappy, although I didn't know you in life, hopefully you are looking down and can see how much your story has touched all of us. Rest peacefully sweet one.

Tears running like rain here too :(

I'm very sorry, I am at a loss for words, words never seem to come at times like this :(

Cappy learned what love was and got tons of it everyday, and he'll always remember that!

RIP Cappy :(

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply to this, but everytime I try I start to cry.
I know just how much her darling boy will be missed.

Have fun at the bridge Cappy and say hi to my Angus and Keisha for me.

That letter definitely tore at my heart. What a difficult time this has been for Leeann and all those close to dear Cappy. Leeann has been Cappy's guardian angel on earth, and I am certain now that Cappy will be Leeann's guardian angel from Heaven. Rest peacefully, pain free and joyful at the bridge, dear Cappy.
