�� Requested by a little girl who's pet cat, "Lucy" passed away. She was a tabby and the special request for a "cat charm" was a bit of a challenge to meet but we made it work! The other request was to have cat ears added to the angel. We struggled with that one but we've since procured even better pet charms

It is one of those stories that both warms and breaks your heart... two people falling deeply in love a little later in life, one becomes tragically ill and the other pours everything they've got into caring for them. As difficult as their journey has been, it is so inspiring to see how this couple cherished each other and chose to squeeze out every drop of happiness that they could from their time together. These little angels were ordered by her to pay-forward to some of the people that were closest to them on their journey
