To Howard Wilson, I know you are well settled there at the bridge, keeping everyone in line and sneaking off getting into something every now and then when no other fur babies are looking, just like you used to when you were with your family. Take a minute though and touch down to your mommy and daddy. Let them know you are happy, healthy and whole again. Let them know you are running free through the meadows, enjoying the year round sunshine just like when you were a pup. Tell them although you can't be by their side, you know you will never be forgotten. All those memories you shared are tucked safe and treasured in their hearts forever.

Hi, Howie! Just dropped by to greet you Happy b'day! You're 16 yrs old today. Have you found my River yet? She's a Beagle like you. What a blast at Rainbow Bridge with you beagles romping around.

Hello, handsome Howard Wilson Ward, welcome to the meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mom and Daddy love and miss you so...they made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words. We asked our Pressy to help Ralph and Scooby welcome you and be a playmate to chase rainbows and give you special kitty love headbumps. She'll show you Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind so Mom 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 Mom 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 Mom and Daddy always, beloved sweet baby. Pressy's Grandpa

Bob/Rose Ann..a beautiful tribute for a great friend.It is never easy to lose a furry young or old and I have lost both.For whatever reason they are always taken from us too soon while leaving their forever pawprints within us. Howard is now healthy and playing with Oreo,Ralph and Eva while waiting for us to join them on the Bridge, they are gone from our site but never forgotten. I can send you my babies site if you wish to visit..take care..

Dear Bob and Rose Ann, Please accept my condolences on the death of your friend Howard Wilson Ward! It's so hard to say goodbye, and I know it will hurt for a while before the happy memories start to return. It was adorable to read your word picture of Howard being young again with his brothers! I hope that knowing you are thought of helps to bring you peace as you grieve. -Megan in PHL, with Dexter "Big Essie" (Bernese mountain dog) and Rinchen (Chow Chow).

Bob, Rose Ann: I’m sorry for your loss. Know that you are not alone. I, too, have lost a beloved pet; everyone in this website have. We feel the pain that you feel; we’ve suffered the loneliness that you suffer, at not having our beloved pet by our side anymore. But we all feel the same relief---that where our beloved pets are now, they’re safe, and happy, and content, whatever afflicted them in this life is gone. And we all share the same hope---one day, we will be together again with our beloved ones. My baby, a female Beagle named River, left for Rainbow Bridge on March 21, 2017; here she is now---

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.

Howard Wilson Ward I am sorry for your loss. Bob and Rose Ann 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.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Howie. Please find comfort in knowing that Howie 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. On March 20, 2017 my sweet little calico Gabbi crossed over Rainbow's Bridge. I adopted her about a month after Spooky passed away and Gabbi also lived to be almost 16 years old. I am sure that Howie and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Dear Howard Wilson Ward, you are truly cherished. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your mom and dad who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Bob and Rose Ann, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul.
