Welcome to Cannoli Farrell's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Cannoli Farrell
The first time I saw you, you were running in a circle with three of your brothers in a cage at Petland.|
I picked you because you were the smallest and my favorite "color".....black and white.
They put you in a cardboard carrier and you made scratching noises against the box the whole way home.
I named you Cannoli after my favorite dessert and my love for all things Italian ❤️
We decided you would be staying in Kenna's room, so we set up your cage, hay and little hut.
All of your HUMAN brothers and sisters held you constantly, you PEED many a time on your sister Kaitlin's assignments ... because she used to put you on her desk while she did homework!
The truth is, I did not pick you up or pet you the first 2 weeks you were at our house.
Though I thought you were adorable, I was a little scared of you because you reminded me of a mouse.
One day I was carrying laundry up to Kenna's room, and I said " Hi Cannoli".
Well..... you walked right over to the side of the cage and climbed up with your front paws and stared at me SO INTENTLY.... as if you were saying " Look, you are going to be MY PERSON ,
My MOM,whether you know it or not."
I fell in love with you that day and so began a wonderful bond that lasted almost six years.
Everyday ( let's be honest ,sometimes 2 or 3 times a day... you were a chubby little guy) I would bring you your tomato or bowl of veggies and make the " click click " sound and you would jump and run to me and kiss my hand and cuddle.
Never mind that I was allergic to you... nothing could keep me from our visits.
I got teased a lot... because you were so spoiled and treated like a PRINCE.., and all the dressing you up in costumes didnt help either .... even though a lot of people started looking forward to those goofy pictures!!
You gave unconditional love to alll of us.., acted like a HUMAN, and brought me JOY EVERYDAY. That there are not enough words to convey.
I miss you TERRIBLY, but know that you are at Peace.
We have your paw print urn,hundreds of pictures, and memories to keep for a lifetime.
I love you, BEAUTIFUL BOY .
GEORGICA POND ( by JOHNNYSWIM)
One day when I'm gone
Scatter my ashes at GEORGICA POND
And that's where I'll stay
Come visit me often
JUST WHISPER MY NAME
And I'll be your lighthouse.
And I'll be your lighthouse
And you'll be one for me
Cause time is the worst kind of friend
Always there til you need it
Then gone in the end
But love is stronger than that
Daydreaming how different this life would be
If the ones you loved most hadn't taken their leave
KNOW THAT IM STILL YOUR LIGHTHOUSE
AND YOU'LL BE ONE FOR ME❤❤❤
Today it has been a week since you passed away
Mommy misses you so much.
I cried most of New Years Day, thinking this is the first year I will not have you with me.
It felt strange not putting your little sparkly New Years hat on your head.
I love you so much and hope that you are playing with a lot of new furry friends you have made at Rainbow bridge.
Your sister Kaitlin made me laugh and feel better yesterday because she told me that while I have your picture next to my bed, she thinks you have a little angel bed with MY PICTURE next to you, and you put your paw on it before you go to sleep.
I am lighting a candle for you at the candle ceremony tonight
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
SWEET DREAMS LITTLE BOY ❤️❤️❤️
I am writing today to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY tomorrow.
I am doing this a day early because I think I will be too emotional tomorrow.
I MISS YOU EVERYDAY.
I wish you were here so I could pet you and take pictures of you in your St Patrick's day hat and birthday hat.
We bought you a birthday cake .... I hope you can see it from Heaven.
I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SPECIAL BOY.
Happy birthday little boy!!!!!
We miss you everyday!
Hope you are having fun with all your guinea pig friends and celebrating!!
Mommy loves you and thinks about you all the time.
Sending you kisses and chin cuddles to the bridge
