Hello Elgin & Rachel, I am so sorry for the lost of your beautiful Blackwing Alli Hammer. 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.

Elgin and Rachel, so sorry for your loss. Saying goodbye is never easy.....those little furry companions definitely steal our hearts and souls. They are so precious and are truly one of God's greatest gifts. Take comfort in that their love for us goes on as our love for them does for eternity. I am sure that the memories of this precious member will be with you always. We also lost our adorable little pug, Nikki Mae, who was the light of our lives for more than 14 wonderful years. We are sure that beautiful Alli and Nikki Mae have become good friends and are now having so much fun playing and running again. Please visit our Nikki Mae at:

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

For Elgin, Rachel, Kodi & Elli, I just visited Blackwing Alli Hamner's residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. Although the time has passed since Blackwing Alli Hamner went to Rainbows Bridge, your love is forever. In January I lost my little Pedro so I think I understand how you must be feeling. All the best to you always, Rosalind

Blackwing looks like such a happy dog and is smiling in the photo! Thank you for the love you gave. It made the world a better place and I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I will give my silly Lucydog a huge hug and kiss in memory of Blackwing tonight.

Dear Elgin, Rachel and Family, what a beautiful rainbow residence you have made for sweet Blackwing Alli Hamner. It's so easy to see by your words and memories how very much she was loved and treasured for all the years she was with you. I know the heartbreak of saying goodbye to a beloved furbaby, but we must always know that our babies have gone to a happy place where they are young and well again. Sweet Blackwing now plays like a puppy in heavenly sunshine, romping with joy in a world full of love and fun. She knows that she will be reunited with her earthly family someday. Blackwing was there to welcome my two kitties, Inky and Bubba Lou, to the rainbow meadow and I am sure our little angels have become the best of friends. I wish you blessings of healing and peace, dear friends. We will see our babies at the rainbow bridge someday.

My Sidney was on the bridge to welcome Blackwing to his new home. They are chasing sunbeams and telling "tails" of their great lives. I have asked them to send you a rainbow from heaven above, a upside down smile. When you miss Blackwing the most, listen to your heart, his love and paw print are there.

Your memories are with us. Nothing will ever take her place in your heart or life. You need to know she is in perfect health no more cancer and she is playing with all the furfriends at the bridge waiting for you all to cross the bridge. If it will help find the poem A DOGS LIFE. It helped us and let us know we did the right thing. She is so pretty and so loved you can see it in her smile.

Alli, you are so beautiful! Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your mom and dad, Kodi and Elli who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Elgin and Rachel, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed home a very special soul. Alli is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May her sweet love continually hug your hearts until then. Blessings and peace, Clare and Martha....Please visit our Katy at

From looking at her photo and reading what was written for and about her it is obvious how much she is loved and missed.
