"Thank you Patricia, and your work really impressed me.  :)  It was lovely and arrived shortly after my fiance's kitty passed away.  I just sat there in awe of it.  I was near tears at it's beauty...and I don't cry much....but that coupled with losing Mystique...it just put me over the top.  Thank you for doing what you do and bringing comfort to people.  There are so many people out there that say animals do not go to heaven, and I'm a strong believer that they have a soul just as we do, so where else would they go.  After all, they are the innocents in this world."

- Kristin, Kitty Kompany
