Words cannot describe my best friend and the tremendous hole that is now in the heart of her Mom!!! I thank God for the fifteen years I had with her. She was truly a gift from God - I found her in the Home Depot parking lot...she was placed there for me to find!!! She brought so much love and happiness to my life that right now I feel like I am surrounded by darkness...but I know that with time her light will shine on my world and I will remember with laughs, smiles and tears of joy instead of the intense sorrow I currently feel. Miss Emma, light of my life, I miss you and can't wait until I see you again at Rainbows Bridge!|
February 24, 2010 - My sweet Emma, my wonderful Bam Boozle, it has been a week since I was able to hold you in my arms and tell you how much I love you. My heart is still breaking but I am trying to be there for your brother, Nicholas, and your two kitties, Titus and Lyla. I hope you are enjoying paradise with lots of furry friends and know that your Mom will be there when it is her time. I can't wait to see you and hold you again, my best friend! Your are in my thoughts constantly and one day soon those thoughts will bring tears of joy and laughter instead of sadness. Since you are close to God right now will you ask Him to help your Mom - He doesn't seem to be listening to me. I love you, baby girl!
March 3, 2010 - Hey my sweet precious angel...I picked up your ashes today and they are in the bedroom on top of the dresser along with your collar. It is so nice to have your ashes here with me...they are the last thing I see at night and the first thing I see in the morning. I love and miss you so much. Have fun with your fur friends in paradise!!! In the meantime I am fostering two furbabies here on earth in your memory. One day I'll get another permanent friend for your brother...but right now I just want to foster so that I can spread the love you gave to me to others that need it!! I MISS YOU ANGEL GIRL!!! I think of you often and you will ALWAYS be my BFF!!!
April 7, 2010 - Hey baby girl...how is paradise? I still miss you with all my heart and soul and think of you daily. You are the best friend a human could ever have!!! So much has changed since you left this earth...I have had a really hard time adjusting to all of the changes but am on the mend, which I know makes you happy. I have a new little girl, Maggie, who I adopted from a rescue organization. She probably would have driven you crazy because she is a little hyper, but she brings a bit of joy to your brother (Nicholas) and me. One day you'll get to meet her in person when we all are together again in paradise. I LOVE YOU, my precious one!!!!
June 15, 2010 - Hi my best girl friend. I still miss you tons - it's been 4 months since I held you and tickled your belly and took you for a walk. I hope you are having fun at Rainbow Bridge. Maggie is till VERY hyper but she is helping your brother Nicholas and your mother heal their broken hearts. Love you, baby girl. Talk to you soon!
PRAYER FOR A DEPARTED PET
Please open your gates and call St. Francis to come and escort this beloved companion across the Rainbow Bridge. Assign her to a place of honor for she has been a faithful servant and has always done her best to please me.
Bless the hands that send her to you, for they are doing so in love and compassion, freeing her from pain and suffering. Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss. Help me to remember the details of her life with the love she has shown me. And grant me the courage to honor her by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember me as well and let her know that I will always love her. And when it's our time to pass over into your paradise, please allow her to accompany those who will bring me home.
Thank you Lord, for the gift of her companionship and for the time we've had together. And thank you, Lord, for granting me the strength to give her to you now.
February 17, 2011 - My precious one - it has been a long year without you here by me. I still miss you so much. I hope you are enjoying life at Rainbow Bridge. I think of you every day. I have a shrine in my bedroom that has your pictures, your ashes, a portrait of you that a friend painted for me and other little things. You are the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see at night. You were (and still are) the best friend I have ever had. NIcholas sends his love as well - he's still a goofy boy dog. Maggie is still with me and I now have another male dog named Reilly who is an absolute terror. He drives Nicholas crazy. I am pretty sure Nicholas misses the nice calm days with his sister, Emma!!! I still have the two kitties as well - Titus and Lyla. They spend a lot of time avoiding Maggie and Reilly - they miss you too. I love you, sweet girl and can't wait to hold you in my arms again. Be happy and know that I love you!!
February 13, 2012 - Hey my sweet girl - I still think of you all the time and miss you so much. I can't believe it has been 2 years since I held you in my arms. I have tears running down my cheeks right now just thinking of you and how much I miss you. I am so blessed to have had you in my life for so long and I can't wait to see you again at the bridge! I now have another dog - Rocky - which makes 4 dogs and 2 cats! Rocky is a very big boy and you probably would have eaten him alive. Know that I love you and that you will always be my best friend. Have fun and I'll see you again!
February 17, 2014 - It just doesn't get easier my sweet girl. I still miss you and think of you every day. Nicholas is still with me and he sends his love. Rocky, Reilly, Titus and Lyla say "hey" and they wish they could have met you. I had to send Maggie to Rainbow Bridge to be with you because she got into several fights with Nicholas and some other dogs...tell her "hi" for me. We all miss her too. I am fostering a sweet black lab/pit mix - poor thing...when I got her she had distemper, pneumonia, heartworms, etc. - she is so thankful that I saved her. You would have liked her. My life continues to have its ups and downs but my heart leaps with joy when I think of you. You keep me sane in a world filled with insanity. I love you sweet girl. We'll be together again in paradise. Talk to you and hug you later. Be happy and have fun...
February 2, 2015 - Hey my sweet girl. I love and miss you with all of my heart. I still look at your picture in my bedroom every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to sleep. I hope you are having fun at Rainbow Bridge. Have you met Maggie yet? Tell her hi from Nicholas, Rocky and Reilly. Nicholas says hi to you too and so does Titus - the crazy black cat. By the way...I adopted the black lab/pit mix - her name is Lucy. I always like having a baby girl to hug on! Life is kind of so-so right now. I just can't seem to keep it together - still get depressed, overeat, drink too much, etc. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful to God for all He has given me (you included) but I would just love to shake my strongholds. You are blessed to be at Rainbow Bridge where all is sunshine and roses! Since I am 61, it shouldn't be too much longer before we are together again. Until then...I love you more than life!!!
February 24, 2016 - Emma, I think of you all the time and yearn for the days when we were physically together. I can't wait to see you again. You are my best friend forever!!!! I have two more dogs that I rescued from death's door. One is Lucy who was so sick with distemper, pneumonia, heartworms, etc., I almost lost her...but she survived and loves me just like you do!!! She knows I saved her life...just like I rescued you from the Home Depot parking lot near a very busy freeway. The other dog, Murray, was up for euthanasia at the pound and I couldn't bear to think that his precious face would be gone if I didn't step up and help. I have had him since last October...he is a handful!!! I love him to death, but will be so happy when we find him a forever home. Hope you are having lots of fun with all the wonderful fur babies! I miss you and will see you, hold you, kiss & hug you again...until then - I LOVE YOU!!!
February 1, 2017 - Hey, my sweet girl. You are still in my heart and in my thoughts daily!!! Your brother Nicholas should be with you now. Remember how much fun the two of you used to have at the park? I hope you are enjoying each other now. I miss you both terribly. Know that I love you. Oh by the way, Murray the dog I told you about last year was adopted by a wonderful family with lots of acreage! He's probably tickled to death. Not any real news here...just missing you. I'll talk to you again soon. I LOVE YOU!!!
