Your mom and I felt sad but had to say goodby to Yoda today. He gave us sixteen loving years. Dad
was the message on my phone. Yoda (so named by Grandma Gladys McCoy when he was a kitten, because of his enormous ears), an enormous siamese mix tom with a sweet disposition who slept beside my mom almost every night while she was in the worst of her illness, had to be put to sleep today, and he'll be missed.
