Costa Family Milestones

Today was a day of mixed emotions for the Costa family.

Sadly, we lost Tiberius today, our beloved Himalayan family cat. The photo on the left shows Ty Guy (left) and Peek-A-Boo (right). Ty was not the smartest cat, in fact, for the majority of his life he was anxious and timid. He was rarely seen at holidays, but those that loved him knew his sweet disposition. Within the past year, Ty was diagnosed with diabetes, and my mom faithfully took care of him giving him insulin shots daily. He was a sweet and loving cat, and he will be greatly missed.

That is a difficult message to come back from, but in happier news, my parents are celebrating their 35 year anniversary today. On this date in 1971, my 19 year old mother and 24 year old father married in Akron, Ohio. Thirty-five years is quite an accomplishment in this day and age, and I am a lucky girl to have such a compassionate and loving family.

Congratulations, Mom and Dad. I love you.

It's never fair when someone says "I love you" first - since the only response is "I love you too". Kind of like the 2nd person wasn't quick / smart enough to say it first :-) But Mom & I do love you Rissa - we're pretty lucky too ;-)

That sucks about Ty -- I'm sorry.

Congrats to your folks!

How can you have a sad/happy post all in one? The juxtaposition confuses me.
