Ch 2.7 ~ The end of the beginning

Journal Entry 7

~Morticia CrinkleWinkle, the beginning of a Legacy~

After a very long life of 211 days, we faced the sad passing of Morticia CrinkeWinkle.

She was loving, hard-working, passionate, exceptionally witty and very precious to us all.

While visiting her friend Goerge Dean, to drop off some perfect quality limes she had promised him, Mr GrimReaper, came to take her to the NetherWorld.

Morti dies

"You lived a long life Morti, but now it is time to go and be with Jon"

"You lived a long life Morti, but now it is time to go and be with Jon"

Morti, you will be dearly missed.

Morticia on the phoneI love you so much JonLOL who could forget this dayA good momCookingPerplexed MortiWootMorti and Jon


May be the face I can’t forget

The trace of pleasure or regret

May be my treasure or the price I have to pay


May be the song that summer sings

May be the chill that autumn brings

May be a hundred different things

Within the measure of the day


May be the beauty or the beast

May be the famine or the feast

May turn each day into a heaven or a hell

She may be the mirror of my dreams

The smile reflected in a stream

She may not be what she may seem

Inside her shell


Who always seems so happy in a crowd

Whose eyes can be so private and so proud

No one’s allowed to see them when they cry


May be the love that cannot hope to last

May come to me from shadows of the past

That I’ll remember till the day I die


May be the reason I survive

The why and wherefore I’m alive

The one who I’ll care for through the rough and ready years


I’ll take her laughter and her tears

And make them all my souvenirs

For where she goes I’ve got to be

The meaning of my life is


Oh, She…”

*She – Elvis Costello*

Goodbye dear Morti…

Morticia CrinkleWinkle... the beginning has ended

    Awww. Lots of sadness going on here, but hopefully lots of good memories xx

      Thanks Rad 😦
      Yes, there are lots of good memories.

      I was ahead in game play and have been trying to catch up here (now i’m up to speed). Maybe the delay was good, as posting really(not much writing) this page was healing, but very emotional.

      I do miss dear Morti alot, and saying goodbye to Tallulah was inevitable but still one never is quite ready for it when it comes.

    Aww dear, I am so sorry about Tallulah. 13 is a long life for a dog and she probably lived a great one with you 🙂

    RIP Tallulah and Morticia.

    Beautiful orbituary! How clever to put that sequel of shots followed by the song…
    I must admit I got confused when the picture of the dog turned up, but now I got it… sorry about your loss, twice.

  5. worsiedog · October 9, 2009

    A picture says a thousand words, especially with Morti. I felt images of her would do the obituary more justice than lots of words.

    My doggie was put to sleep on sunday, and I wrote this chapter on Tuesday, so it was fitting to add them both.

    Morti helped me work through the loss of Tallulah in some way.

    Thanks again.

    I am so sorry for your loss, but what a great way to do a tribute!

    • worsiedog · October 29, 2009

      Thanks DB… this was an extremely difficult chapter, due to the RL emotions involved… I went through a whole box of tissues. LOL, I am so over-emotional…. really!

      But, I must say this chapter, *cleansed my soul*… some things happen at times for strange reasons which we cannot immediately explain, and I think that this was one of those moments.

    Last year I lost a cat that had been with me over ten years. So you know I know.

    And I know this is “old” news. But I don’t care. I still miss my kitty girl. I’m sure you feel the same about your dog. So here’s another big hug. ((((((Worsie)))))))

    Thank you very much! I miss her dearly everyday. I have her ashes but I have not done anything special with them yet.

    This update required lots of tissues… but it helped the healing process. Tallulah was put to sleep in the early hours of Sunday morning after having multiple seizures… her last hours however were peaceful as she was in an emergency animal hospital from the night before and they sedated her all night in the hopes that they could find a solution by morning. It was very very hard to say goodbye, but I did not want her to suffer any longer and at least I was with her in the end and it was peaceful. I wrote this chapter on the Monday or Tuesday afterwards.

    I am sorry about your cat:( Cats are my favorite, mine is 16 and I am preparing myself for the day when he passes.
