jody Jody

Again, this week I was reminded of how transient life is when one my sweetest and most beloved friends, Jody Nelson, collapsed. Jody suffered a cardiac arrest and although resuscitated, she has been removed from life support due to brain damage and is not expected to survive. Jody just celebrated her 51st birthday.

All though small in stature, Jody has always had one of the biggest hearts around. As long as I have known her Jody has had a full family of furry babies in her home, dogs and cats. She often fosters homeless pets…and usually ends up adopting the baby permanently. Presently Jody has two dogs and a cat: Zoey, Tangie and Tennessee. Her beloved dogs Bresa and Sabra have passed over the rainbow bridge. She is a big supporter of animal rescue and animal meals on wheels.

Jody came into our lives when she became pet sitter for my canine siblings Zoe and Zelda 15 years ago. She even christened Zelda with the nickname Zelly Belly. She was an invaluable support and help when mummy’s mother was battling cancer and when she passed. But then…that’s Jody. Always there for her friends.

Although Jody…like other friends and family members…may pass from our sight, she will never be out of our hearts. We love you Jody.

And so we purr for health for the sick, healing for the injured, and comfort to those of us who love them. There is no PEACE without health.

We were very sorry to hear about your friend Jody.
It sounds like Jody would have like to let those learn that the best way to remember is not by continually dwelling on tragedy, but by living our own lives to the fullest every day, as living memorials to those beautiful souls whose own lives were cut way, way too short.
We will purr….
