Although I personally ascribe more to The William Shatner school of Philosophy, which basically says to make the most possible of this life because any part of us that survives death won’t be recognizable, I could easily hope to be wrong just so I could hold the Magical Girl once again.
Please relay the details when you get them.

I got an email from the Texas Veterinary Medical Association – Lilly is this year’s TVMA Animal Hall of Fame winner in the professional category! They told us although they had many outstanding candidates, she was the "clear" winner.
That light is still shining!!!
They would like to present her award to you (as well as the companion award winner) at the next Veterinary Medical Association (VMA) meeting – I will let you know the details as soon as I receive them.
Congratulations to you and Lilly – I know for SURE she is waiting to see you again someday.
