Every year, Capitol Hill aides eagerly await Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez’s Christmas card, as it’s usually zany enough for a chuckle or two.

This year, Sanchez’s card pays a special tribute to Gretzky, her deceased cat.

“Holiday memories last forever,” the card says, “A TRIBUTE TO GRETZKY. 1991-2010.”

Sanchez’s cat died in November at age 19.

Gretzky was always a key part of the Sanchez’s Christmas cards past, and this year’s card offers recipients a chance to reminisce.

One past card pictured, for instance, features Sanchez and Gretzky sleeping together in Christmas-themed pajamas. “With Loretta in pink flannel and Gretzky in his cap, they’d just settled down for a long winter’s nap,” that card says.
