In Loving Memory of Thomas

"The Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills, and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail are made young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other. There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose twitches! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group! You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet, you take him into your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated. "
Thank you Lauren, my dear friend, for your lovely story; I deleted my previous post announcing Thomas passing away, it was too painfull for me to see it and read it every day. He's having  a special place in my heart, like Charlie and Pitzi, and my life was blessed in so many ways having them. Thank you Angela, Mary, Brenda and Lauren for your kind words and prayers, it makes it a little easier for me.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope it makes you feel better knowing that Thomas has crossed The Rainbow Bridge and is frolicking with his friends, waiting for the day when you join him. RIP Thomas. Warm hugs to you Monique!

Thank you Brenda, may God keep yours happy and in good health so they can bring you as many joyfull moments as possible; there's nothing more sad than to lose them to cancer, young or old, it doesn't matter, none of them should go like this.

Monica...I am so very sorry about your Thomas but hope you feel some comfort in knowing that he is over the Rainbow Bridge. Only those of us who think of our pets as children really know how hard it is to let go.
I lost my two jack russells this past year and am still struggling with it. Hopefully my Ruger & Reggie can meet up with your Thomas.
