In Memoriam

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, 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 each miss someone very special, someone who was 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 begins to quiver

Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster, 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 those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart

 

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together .....
