Cake For a 3 Year Old

Today we remember Dad - 3 years ago he passed away and our lives have never been the same.

We all miss him terribly - probably no one more than mama - he was the center of my world and the guy who raised me to be the fine Dale that I am.  And even though he didn't care for kitties at first, because he fell in love with a woman who had a lot of cats, he came around to the feline side of life.

And Behemoth - Dad's favorite cat - is doing a lot better recently.  He had lost a ton of weight and was very, very sick, but mama has been working hard to get him better and fatten him up.  A Carvel cake will do the trick.

Behemoth is my favorite cat too.  He smells really right and lets me lick his head from time to time.

And Aeon - who Dad got for Mama when another kitty of hers passed away many years ago - wanted to help celebrate as well.

So every year, on March 1st, mama, me and the kitties have a cake and remember Dad.  We try really hard to think about the good times, but it's also very, very sad for us.  That's where the cake comes in.  It's hard to cry and eat cake at the same time.  So we do our best.

And this was my very first ice cream cake.  Vanilla on the top for me and the kitties, chocolate on the bottom for mama.  It's really nature's perfect food.

Dad, we miss you so very much.  I try to be the best Man of the House that I can be, protect mama at all times, and give her the kisses that I know you would want me to give to her every day.  We're just not the same without you, and I can't believe that it has been 3 years since you have been gone.

Love ya lots,

Big hugs to all of you. I hope that you are right and that one cannot eat cake and cry at the same time.

Oh Bogart!
You made me and Keeper teary eyed.
Keeper said how time flies so fast. I lost all my family too except Keeper. And I think for that we should be happy. To be strong for those left behind . . .

Oh Bogart and Mama and Kitties! I remember that terrible time, how sad it was, and how you visited your Dad in the hospital so he'd know you were there for him. You have been such a strong young man for your mama, I know she appreciates all your support. Hugs to you all!!

We love you guys and love that you always remember your daddy and celebrate his life. The cake looked really tastey and was a good idea. We told our mama to lift a glass in memory of Klaus too.
