“God gave us our memories so that we might have Roses in December." a quote by J.M. Barrie. May the memories of your sweet Ariel, the ones that can't help but bring a smile to your heart as you remember how your baby’s paw prints touched your life, be the ones that surround you this first Holiday Season without your beloved furbaby. My prayer for all of us this Joyous season, is that our babies will wrap up a special little sign for each one of us back here, and send it to us during this blessed season. May you catch a glimpse of your special sign, just when your heart needs it the most....And may each love-filled memory you have of your beloved fur-angel bring to your heart the very warmth and sunshine of the Rainbow itself. That's just one "gift" your baby-angel would want for you this season. Best wishes for you and your family this Holiday Season, Karen (Dusty, Momma, DJ & Patches mom)

Hello, pretty Ariel Rishkel, welcome to the sunny meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mommy and Daddy love and miss you so...they made you a beautiful place at Rainbows Bridge. We asked our Pressy to welcome you and be a playmate to chase colorful rainbows and give you special kitty love headbumps. She'll show you wonders of Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind so Mommy and Daddy feel your loving presence with them and sweet kisses in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until they come to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask they not be so sad but treasure your memory and remember you're nestled beside your pawprints deep in their hearts forever. Play meadow games with furangels but stop often to smile at Mommy and Daddy so they feel the warmth of your love surround them and know you miss them too and are with them. Soar among clouds on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mommy and Daddy always, beloved sweet girl. Pressy's Grandpa

I am so sorry for your loss of Ariel. My heart goes out to you as I know you are struggling so with the loss of your precious baby. Your world has lost a very special baby, family member and friend, but the heavens have welcomed home a very special soul. Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain. I know you had a special relationship with Ariel that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Ariel and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Ariel continue to warm your heart and I hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your love will bind you together forever. Peace and blessings to you. My precious Bailey left our world December 5th, 2013 and we miss her so. Please visit my Bailey at

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Ariel. Please find comfort in knowing that Ariel is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. On January 11, 2013, I lost my faithful friend Hannah who was a beautiful blue tick hound dog. On August 2, 2013 another one of my beautiful cats, Sammi, a black and white tabby, went to Rainbows Bridge. April 9, 2014, Maci, my English Bulldog passed over to Rainbows Bridge. Maci and Hannah were best friends. I am sure that Ariel and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Erika & Rich, I am so sorry to learn of the recent passing of your beautiful Ariel - `an angel with the sweetest heart` who has been a large part of your lives for 12 years. It is often hard to find words to express what the pure, unconditional love of a precious animal means to us. Our hearts are too full - and often overwhelmed - by coming to Rainbow Bridge and seeing our loved one`s memorial site. I know how deeply affected I was when I recently registered my 3 beloved pigeons who have been my Family for a total of 30 years. Here we may grieve for and express our love to them. It is also a place to give thanks and to commemorate their anniversaries - which can be an intensely painful time. All at Rainbow Bridge have suffered the deep sorrow of losing a fur/feather child - and there is help from other pet-owners should you need it. I promise you the wounds of love grow less painful with time - and you may feel Ariel near you in spirit as you talk to her. Heaven is not so far away!

Erika and Rich- It was hard not to smile back at Ariel's pictures and can only imagine how you must be feeling to lose your best friend and companion. I am so deeply sorry. May memories bring you solace and time bring you peace as grief can feel overwhelming, yet it shows the power of the love you've shared. To know that connection remains for an eternity, I've placed a pull rope at Rainbow Bridge--never let go!

Ariel Rishkel I am sorry for your loss. Erika & Rich love you and miss you very much. My Perseus went to Rainbow Bridge when he was 14. There are no more aches or pains. No rain only sunshine. Running and playing all day with the other furbabies. One day we will join them for all eternity at Rainbow Bridge.
