“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, Gentle Bear, 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 Christmas 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)

Matthew, I'm so sorry that you have lost Bear. I enjoyed reading your memories of him. He sounds very special. My Owen was very special too and he passed at the end of June. (Please visit his memorial if you get the chance.) His older brother and I miss him so much. It is my hope that Owen and Bear are running and playing together in the sunshine. I believe we will see them again. Peace, Dana

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Bear. Please find comfort in knowing that Bear 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 Bear and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Hello Matthew, I am so sorry for the lost of your beautiful Bear. King Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes: "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven…a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance…" The Zohar, the classic work of Kabbalah, describes the inner psyche of man as "crying being on one side of the heart and laughing on the other side of the heart." Yet, there is an even deeper understanding, we will learn to be joyous and broken hearted at the same time. Our fur babies where so beautiful and a gift of true joy & love, how can we not be happy when we reflect on their memory and begin to celebrate their life. One day we will be together again with our beautiful companions; I lost my Zander & Zianna & have attached their link if you care to visit. With Love & Sympathy Diane.

Hi, Matthew, Bear reclaimed his empty life by walking into yours and loving you as long as he could. May the precious memories of your beautiful Bear soften the sadness in your heart. Please accept my deepest sympathy and a soft ball as a token of the patience and trust he learned from you. In peace...

Bear I am sorry for your loss. Matthew loves and misses 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.

Dear Matthew I'm sorry for the loss of your Bear. What a handsome guy. I lost my Finnbar December 2012.I understand how hard it is to say goodbye.When its time you'll be together again just as it should be.Until then Bear is waiting for you at Rainbowsbridge happy and healthy.There are new places to explore so much space to run like the wind all the good treats and when he needs a break,meadows to lie in the sun.He's having a ball with his new friends all the while still keeping an eye on you.I hope he's met Finn by now.He's a friendly little cat but he's scrappy and he can catch. If you would care to visit my Finnbar

Dear Matthew - I am so sorry for your loss of Bear. 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 Bear that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Bear and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Bear 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

Hello, handsome Bear, welcome to the sunny meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Daddy loves and misses you so...he made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words about you. We asked our Pressy to welcome you and be a playmate to chase golden sunbeams and 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 Daddy feels your loving presence with him and Bear kisses in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until he comes to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask he not be so sad but treasure memories of you and remember you're nestled beside your pawprints deep in his heart forever. Play meadow games with other furangels but stop often to smile at Daddy so he feels the warmth of your love surround him and knows you miss him too and are with him. Soar among clouds now on silvery new angel wings to watch over Daddy always, beloved sweet Gentle Bear. Pressy's Grandpa

Bear could not have been a luckier pup. There was no one else he would have ever been able to trust and give his heart to- he was just to sacred. His life was terrible as a puppy,living under a junked car, hit with sticks, kicked and chased away-UNTIL he came to you, and you healed his gentle spirit. Thank you for giving him a wonderful life- one that would not have been possible with anyone else, but you. RIP sweet Bear- You will always be missed and will be a part of the hearts of those who loved you.

Dear Bear, you are truly handsome. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the heart of your dad who misses you so much, and he will send his love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Matthew, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Bear is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Tashi, Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet love continually nuzzle your heart until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Bear will never be broken. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Tashi at

For sweet Bear, I know that during your lifetime you gave Matthew much joy. Now I am wishing for you lots and lots of happiness in the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. From looking at your photo and reading what Matthew wrote for and about you it is obvious that you came from a very warm and loving home. Bear I have a wonderful playmate for you. His name is Pedro and he is adorable just like you. I know you two will be very good friends. For Matthew, I just visited Bear's Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious furangel. I am sure if asked, Bear would have said that every day spent with you was a blessing. Having lost my little dog Pedro I can understand how you must be feeling and how much you must miss Bear. Wishing you all the very best always, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom)
