Check out the Blog Archives to read about our cross country motorcycle road trip from MA to CA this summer. We attended the Annual 2011 National Women On Wheels® Ride-In in San Jose CA. Then we just rode. We traveled over 11,000 motorcycle miles in what ever direction we wanted to go. We visited friends and family, saw the country, met some amazing people. We made memories we'll never forget. These memories are what THIS BLOG is made of! Enjoy them while we make MORE memories worthy of posting here for your enjoyment.

Farewell Francesca - Part 2

Cooper and I went to the memorial ceremony for Francesca, America's Hometown Cat who passed away on November 22. 

The ceremony was held on the Plymouth water front.  There was a nice gathering of people.  Some people brought their dogs who knew our special kitty friend.  Almost everyone there knew Francesca and loved her.  

I recognized many of the people there.  Anyone who wished to speak about Francesca was allowed to say their piece.  There were tears and laughter shared in memory of this special cat. 

Pam (Francesca's owner) and a little girl walked with her to some of Francesca's favorite places sprinkling Francesca's ashes on the ground where she would frequently lay sunning herself.  It really was touching and special.  

There was a nice display of pictures and memorabilia on a park bench.  Right in the middle of the bench was a box containing the rest of Francesca's ashes.

Pam claims that she plans to get another cat when the time is right.  We're all hoping she finds another cat who will accompany her everywhere she goes like Francesca did for so long.

RIP Francesca.  You will be missed by Many MANY people.
