A Wake For Emil

Our dear friend and bestest men Opus and Roscoe put together an Irish Wake for Emil.
We are just overwhelmed with gratitude, thank you so much dear friends.

We invite all of you who met Emil, maybe got to know him a bit, or maybe just heard about him, saw his "
Behind The Scenes" pictures or never even met him until now to participate in his wake.

Post your favorite Emil story, anecdote, or memory or just give your condolences.

Opus and Roscoe also made a picture of Emil arriving at the bridge, being welcomed by
Anastasia, Miral and Ralph.

My lovely Simba and Persia had to move away. This has been one of the most sad times in my life. They both went to very wonderful owners that I know; but still it has been very hard on us to have to give them up!

If you want to see pictures and videos of them go to: http://catcast.podomatic.com

Please throw up a prayer or two for us as well.

My fondest memory of Emil is when he captured that shot of Tigmut'hep in a right state at your wedding reception! Oh how we taunted Tigs for getting caught in the act of being a totally out of control 'niphead! ;)

The early passing of such a talented mancat is deeply sad, we hope you all have many, many wonderful memories of his time with you to treasure...

Purrs,
Ramses

Words can not express how much I miss Emil. I will definitely go to his wake and drink a niptini or two in his honor. He was a special mancat.

That is a lovely wake for Emil. Opus & Roscoe did a wonderful job on everything.

We imagine you are crying tears of joy over his life and tears of sorrow over his loss.

Bendrix is a little nervous about what he'll find over at Emil's. I wonder what Mrs Oz caught....I guess as long as mommy doesn't see it, we're safe!

We just came from Emil wakes. It is clear from all of the comments and posts, that he was a cat who was loved by all.

We all knew that Emil was a special cat, but isn't it nice to hear it from his friends....

We will always miss Emil and happy that we had him as our friend.

Love,
Opus and Roscoe

Many Hugs and Purrs,

This is one beautiful photo, it is comforting to know that Anastasia, Murial, and Ralph were waiting for Emil at The Rainbow Bridge. The celebration of his life was such a good idea and so nice of Opus and Roscoe to host it.
We think of Emil often, he will always be close to us never far from our thoughts.
