Remembering Marble

As most of you know, we had Marble for over 16 years. Today I gathered pictures of him to do a slideshow video. I set it to Al Stewart's Time Passages which worked really well. Only it didn't work well for Mr. Stewart who is reaallllly picky about copyright issues. Sheesh. (I would have happily paid but that wasn't an option.)

Soooo... the alternate soundtrack isn't as good, but it works.

Song #1 is Carole King's Brighter (because Marble made our world brighter). Song #2 is the Grass Roots' Glory Bound (because it is upbeat, I like the Grass Roots, and I guess one could say Marble is glory bound).

Anyway, we all love and miss Marble -- he was a one of a kind cat.

That was a lot of crying for a 5 minute video. Good job on it :) I miss Marble. :(

Barb, I don't know how I missed the passing of marble? or maybe I didn't miss it but just have too much on my mind to remember? Either way...wow - I am soooo sorry. It is really sad to lose one of our special beloved animals.

I'm sorry he's gone. He was a good, good kitty.

David, thanks. Maybe it's a good thing Time Passages didn't work out -- It might have seemed even sadder! (But darn, it was perfect.)

MP, I mostly posted that his passing was imminent...

db, thanks, and he appreciated when you sometimes kittysat.

What a fine and excellent cat Marble was. I'm so sorry for your loss. That just leaves a big hole in the family.

God bless Marble!

David said...

Yeah, I listened to Time Passages, that would've been a good song, good length too.

Glory Bound to the pictures makes me cry the most, especially when Marble is walking out the front door right when the theme of the song plays. And the last one of Christina kissing Marble :(

PG, Thanks, he was indeed a fine and excellent cat.

David, Yes, there are some particulary poignant moments...
