We are heartbroken also - we've known Roscoe for many years.

Sassy Kat said...

Oh Sissy, this was just terrible. I cannot believe that our sweet little Roscoe went to the bridge today. My heart is so heavy and the mom of the house leaks from her eyes all the day long. I will miss him so much but know that some day we will be together again. When I see him the next time he will not be ill and will want to go on other adventures.

Mack said...

That is so very sad. We will go over and send our condolences.

Cynthia Rae said...

Dear Asta and parents,
Thank you for such a sweet and loving tribute to Roscoe. We know you prayed hard, but sometimes it is just time to go....

Roscoe loved you very much and was so happy that you got to come to Italy for real. He was happy that you got to see his home country and that you enjoyed it so much. We do hope that you can come back one day, Opus is waiting for you.

Did you know that one of Roscoe's first adventures was when he met you in Rome? We will always remember that fun day.

We put Roscoe to rest with one of the mice that you brought him when you came to Italy. We picked the red one as that was always Roscoe's color.

Sending you a big hug from Italy and thanking you all for your friendship. It means so much.
Opus and Cyn
