Peace Be With You

The loss of a pet is devastating, and requires time to overcome.  There will be those who don’t understand your loss, and there are those of us who do.   Be kind to yourself during your time of recovery.  It’s your pain.  Share your pain with those of us who do understand and avoid sharing with people who don’t.  You may find you feel sorry for them, as they haven’t been as lucky as you to know the love of a pet.

….The Rainbow Bridge….

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes just this side of the Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills where they run and play together with others in waiting. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine.  Our friends are warm and comfortable there.  All the animals that were ill and old are restored to health and vigour. Those who were hurt, maimed or born crippled, are made whole and strong. The animals are happy and content, except that, they miss someone special. They run and play together and bask in the sunshine. The day comes when one looks into the distance. Eyes become intent and body quivers. Suddenly our long lost pet runs from the pact, over the meadows, faster and faster.  You and your special friend meet in joyous reunion.  You look into the eyes of your animal companion, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.  The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands caress your beloved pet.

You know you will never be parted again.

The void is filled.

Side by side for eternity.

Together you cross
