Just this side of Heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge.
an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet
goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our
special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of
food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and
vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.|
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind.
|They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.|
|Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.......|
Ruben was more than just a great lovable kitty, he was my child, my baby. He was sick and sadly taken away from me to soon. He was only four. He was my best friend in this whole universe and I will forever miss him, and be grateful for the time we got to spend together. I know his pain is over, but I know mine will never leave. I love you, Ruben Eugene Gathers. And I know you are looking after mommy, daddy, and your brother Tyson. We miss you monkey, with every fiber of our being. You are our heart and soul, we will see you again and I cannot wait for that moment. Be patient, my sweet baby, I WILL be with you again.
Morgan, Mommy misses you everyday. You truly taught me so much. True love and loyalty. You were my lil girl, my best friend. Brother is doing good and misses you too. We will all meet up again to be together forever. I love you. Love, your mommy
Mukha Santosha McChesney-Henry was the most beautiful, smart, energetic, and loving golden retriever. She was always ready to go for a walk, a ride, or go play. She was my constant companion and heart dog. I will love you forever, sweet Mukha.
Abigail, you were a one of a kind, loving girl. Wish you were still here, but know that you are chasing butterflies and squirrels in heaven and are by daddy Craig's side. Love you.
We have had 26 ferrets since 1993. Went to our vet to get our cat's teeth cleaned and saw a ferret for the first time in my life. I ended up taking 2 home that very day. Kirby and Tyrone. Love at first sight. I started working in a local pet store that sold ferrets and ended up adding to our family several more over the years. Mouse, Scooter, Maggie, Peanut, Dusty, Hobbs, Blackjack, and more. I have 3 babies now. Pepper, 6 yrs old, and 2 new boys, Badger and Scamper. So many have passed but are still loved and cherished. They made me laugh every day with their antics, and showed me love in return. They do not have a long life span which makes it so heart breaking but I would do it all over again. Here's to my precious babies. I will forever love you.
My baby girl went to heaven on 10-16-16 after 15 great years.
I lost Roxie June 9th, 2015, and not a day passes that I don't think about her. She gave unconditional love to me and I gave it to her in return. I nursed her when she was ill and carried her after her surgery before she could walk again. She was so loving and smart. We had a connection when we looked in each other's eyes. I pray I get to hold her again.
Zeus was an amazing dog, friend, 4 legged child. He was only 4 when he got cancer. He loved taking a shower with me and cuddling on the couch with me. He was my baby. I'll never forget him. Rip Zeus. Gone too soon.
My Loving Child, In Heaven
Rosie was my soul mate, my constant companion for the past 16 years. She adopted me when she was 6 weeks old. I quickly realized that she was deaf. We worked with a trainer to learn hand signs. She didn't care that she couldn't hear. She had a personality that filled the room. She loved playing ball, running full speed through the woods and going for rides. I became a trainer because of her. She was an attentive, patient training partner. While she is physically gone from me, she is forever with me.
Sweetest, prettiest gracile red-nose pibble, Abigail. Inherited from our daughter when the pibble/mastiff mix (whom Abby raised) got to be bigger than she. Then Abby felt that she needed to assert herself, and fights ensued. Baby gates were installed, and peace returned. She loved everyone she met: strangers were just friends she hadn't met yet. At 12, she developed an auto-immune disease, the medicine for which made her miserable, until the day she could no longer stand up. A vet came to release her from her misery, and now she roams free, healthy again, and loving everyone she meets, across the rainbow bridge.
No matter how big he got he always wanted me to carry him like a human toddler would. Monte would put his paws around my shoulders. Wish I had a picture of that. He was only 13 months when he passed of an intestinal blockage. It broke my heart. Forever would not have been enough. Miss him so.
It's been a year this week since our Holly Marie went to play in the fields just beyond The Rainbow Bridge at the young age of 10...
Mommy & Daddy miss you everyday, pumpkin. We know you are in great company!!! Until we meet again, sweet dreams baby girl XOXO
You were my son since the minute I saw your face at just 2 hours old. At that moment we never left each other's side. We always knew what the other one was thinking and we were always there for each other for 18 years. The doctors only gave you 6 months to live with your cancer but I knew that wasn't true. You went through your chemo treatments and blood transfusions like such a trooper and I never left your side as I promised you I wouldn't. There were many nights that me and Dad slept in the hospital with you and you fought with all your might for 2 1/2 years. That final day I will never forget because it seems like just yesterday that you slept in my arms for 5 hours until it was time to rush you to the hospital. When the doctor told us that this was it and your heart rate was only at 4 you still fought. You looked up at me, said Meow-me and kissed me. You still would not leave me until I told you that it was okay to go and see your other brothers and sisters and tell you that I have never been so proud of anyone the way I was of you. Well, my love that has not changed and it never will. Although it has been 6 months already when I told you that you take the love with you I truly meant it but you also took my heart with you, I will miss you forever and I can't wait until we are together again because there is not a day that I do not think about you or look at your pictures. Dad would always say that we were joined at the hip and that you loved me more but baby I love you till infinity and back. On Tuesday, September 7, 2016 at 4:56 p.m. I not only had to say Good Night to my son but to my forever best friend, soulmate, confidant, the love of my life and the biggest part of my heart that will be gone until we meet again. I never thought anyone could possibly change the way you love until we had to say Good Night. He truly took a huge part of my heart with him. I will never say Good Bye to C. because Good Bye means forever and I know I will see him again. So for now I will just say Good Night my son, sweet dreams.
Goldie was a Red Chihuahua that was getting dropped of at the Humane Society in Dania, FL back in 1996. She was found in a car that was abandoned in a gas station. The lady had her in her car and walked in to say she was dropping a Chihuahua she found. My daughter, who was 12 yrs. old at the time, saw her and it was love at first sight. Well, the lady dropping off the chihuahua said "I want that girl to have her" and the Humane Society person said "if you bring the dog in here it would go to the first person on a list after they fix and vaccinate it." The lady said "I want that girl to have her and the dog is still in my car!" So the lady told us to meet her at the nearby hotel down the road and we did. She gave us the dog for free and medication she was given her for a rash. My daughter was so happy for getting Goldie because she had just lost her other dog and that was why we were at the Humane Society. Well, to make the long story short, we had Goldie for 14 years, she was 15 years old when she passed away in 2010!!!
Missing you and loving you,
Your parents and baby brother Rambo.
