In Memory of Our Beloved...



Your courage, strength and support when you were with me was more than I had for myself. Thank-you for all the good times, love and affection you brought to my life. And thanks for pulling us through the difficult times when I was down. Your strength pulled us through to my time of "Recovery". And when you saw how good I was doing, it was then when I saw that you knew and let go. For that I am so very grateful and you will live on in my heart FOREVER! You are the Angel that God sent from above and you returned to him w/ all your wings and a badge of Courage and Honor!
God Bless Your Precious Soul...

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 whiskered 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 destoyed?
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.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When 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, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals that 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 each 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. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run 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....
We Love You Kahlua w/ All Our Heart & We'll Be Together Again Someday Soon! ~ xo =)
