In Honor & Remembrance of Our Beloved Pets That Have Gone AheadTo The Rainbow Bridge.

GOD SPEED...to ALL of our precious pets on their journeys!
I stood by your bed last night,
I came to have a peep
I could see that you were crying,
you found it hard to sleep
I whined to you softly as
you brushed away a tear,
"it's me, I haven't left,
I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here"
I was close to you at breakfast,
I watched you pour the tea
You were thinking of the many times,
your hands reached down to me
I was with you at the shops today,
your arms were getting sore
I longed to take your parcels,
I wish you could do more
I was with you at my grave today,
you tend it with such care
I want to reassure you,
that I'm not lying there
I walked with you towards the house,
as you fumbled for your key
I gently put my paw on you,
I smiled and said "it's me"
You look so very tired,
and sank into a chair
I tried so hard to let you know,
that I was standing there
It's possible for me,
to be so near you every day
To say to you with certainty,
"I never went away"
You sat there very quietly,
then smiled, I think you knew
In the stillness of that evening,
I was very close to you
The day is over,
I smile and watch you yawning
And say "goodnight, God bless,
I'll see you in the morning"
And when the time is right for you
to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you
and we'll stand, side by side
I have so many things to show you,
there is so much for you to see
Be patient, live your journey out,
then come home to be with me.

My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head was in my hand.
The Doctors said he was in no pain,
But it was hard for him to stand.

The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms. Were of his
younger, puppy years, and oh...his many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you" gaze,
Only a heart filled with tears...
Remembering our joy filled days.

But an Angel appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
God also loves our canine friends,
HE's installed a 'doggy-door'!

Jan Cooper

Please don't mourn for me
As I am at peace & fly free
I know you loved me
For I loved you too
Beautiful memories were made
Please don't let those fade
Someday you'll join me
Until then do not fear

For I Fly Free & high
Yet I stay always near

Here at the Bridge



If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come...please let me go.
Take me where my need they'll tend,
And please stay with me, if you can, until the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waived,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve... it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.

They say memories are golden,
well maybe that is true...
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill!

If tears could build a stairway,
and heartache make a lane...
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so,replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.
Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the soft purring angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.
But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.
Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Precious little Kizzy, a 16 yo furr of Becky's, Grandcat to Jeannette, went to the Rainbow Bridge on 9/17/08. Having spent her life with Becky, & giving much love & wonderful memories. She's at the Bridge, running & playing with Pip, Tinker, & all those having gone before. She'll be there, & run to wrap around your leg when you come, Becky.

Jess was the "cat no one wanted". But she found a loving home, when Suzy rescued her at 5 yo. Where she lived until it was time for her to take her trip at 19 yo in April '08. She was Suzy & hubby's first furr baby, & still loved. Also missed by Harry & Miss Hoops, her furr friends. Suzy, Jess is purring like a kitten & at peace.

On a rainy morning, dear Benny went to the Rainbow Bridge, to be with his sister Albinnie, who went the yr before. Both are galloping around in the green grass & having fun. There'll come a day when Sara gets to be with them again, so till then, just think of all the good times.

Sybil, tells us when she & friend Mary, went to pickup a wee 3 mo old pup in 2001, they thought of several names to call him. But, as he perked up when they said "Dee", they knew that was to be his name! D for dog, daft, darling, & dashund. Sybil, lost her longtime friend & companion on Dec 2, 11. He was as loyal & loving as he was ever present, by her side. She says her arms & her heart ache without him. But, dear Syb, he's still there in your heart, where he'll remain until the day he'll jump into your arms. Dee, is safe & free from pain now, he's with our other beloved furr family members @ the Rainbow Bridge.

Booger Boy, a great companion & protector, lost his fight with heart disease & has joined our beloved ones at the Bridge. Mary misses him terribly, & will hold him in her heart always. R.I.P. sweet furr.

Each had a unique personality, & will always be loved. But they are there, with all the others, at the Rainbow Bridge, waiting for that wonderful, happy reunion one day! I could talk forever about them, & there still wouldn't be enough words to express how much love they gave, & how thankful I am to have shared my life with them.
Much love to you my darlings, SPECIAL LOVE TO PUDDIN (my soul mate). I will join you all soon, know that Mama thinks of you often, & holds you in my heart, till I can hold you in my arms.Sugar (author)

Adorable wee Laci, 13 yo Chi, with heart disease. 10/28/1995-11/19/2008. She was called Laci, because when she was born, she looked the color of beautiful old-timey cream colored lace. Laci was a true member of the family, giving all of her heart & unconditional love to them, till the very end. She will never be forgotten, living in the hearts & memories, of her family forever. Condolences, Donna, cherish your thoughts of her, & look forward to that great reunion day! Right now, she's waiting for you, while she plays with all the other furrs. No pain, no old age, not at The Bridge...only comfort & peace.

R.I.P. little Polly.

Gabi was special! The angels at the Bridge, escorted Gabi there on 3/11/09, because she'd became very ill & there was no cure. She's now at peace, purring & meowing at her new friends...while she waits for the day when Linda joins her. Linda, hold onto your treasured memories, & she'll remain in your heart forever.

Sandra, had to let her dear friend Jake take that trip to the Bridge, on 11-24-09. He was such a loving member of their family, & will be greatly missed.

She says his breed was called a Nebelung, & that when he was 1 1/2 years old he was diagnosed with an inoperable bone tumor in his left rear leg, it had to be removed.

Dawn, he's now at the Bridge, with lots of new furr friends. Basking in their attention, & love. As angels check in often to make sure all is going well, till the day you join him! (Melanie wants him to know he'll be missed by his "auntie mel" too)
