Darling Kayla, you were taken from us far too soon. We were not prepared to lose your precious presence . The Mama, the Daddy and the Auntie will always hold a special place for you in our hearts. |
We will remember the exuberant "puppy attacks" that greeted us at the door when we returned home.
You always understood our moods. You licked the tears from our faces when we were sad. You stayed right at our sides when we were sick. You vigilantly protected us from bicycles, pedestrians, cats and any dangers you perceived entering your territory. You offered us your warm back on cold nights pressed against us to share your warmth. We will remember your cold nose nudging our elbows for a hug or a pat. You shared and enhanced our joy when we were happy.
We will remember the day we brought you home. You were so tiny. You disappeared under the seat of the van and we had to pull over to look for you. When we got home we put you on the bed and you walked up Daddy's chest to lick his face.
We will remember many happy days spent playing ball in the backyard in Randolph and at the park, swimming at Fisherman's Beach, long car rides with your head out the window to catch the breeze, sitting on the porch watching the world go by and barking at bicycles.
We will remember your last days when you bravely endured your pain to share a few last special moments with us.
We know that you are free of pain and illness now. We picture you at God's side, in His protection and wait for the day that we will be reunited with you at the Rainbow Bridge to enter Heaven together.
Good Bye, our precious girl.
April 14, 2008 -It has been two weeks since you left us, Kayla. Mama and Auntie miss you terribly. You are in our hearts and our thoughts every minute of every day. Please watch over us from on high until the day comes when we can be together again. I know that your special dish is full of the tastiest treats and your favorite blue soccer ball is once again full of air for you to chase through the meadows. From your spot on the hill, you can watch the world go by as you so loved to do and greet all of the newcomers with your puppy attack, so they will not be afraid. We love you.

Mommy and Auntie talked for a long time today. I'm sure that you heard us talking about how much we miss you girl. Mommy bought some "Slim Jims" and put them with your collar and your doggie dish. Today the sky was clear and blue and I'm sure that you could look down and see us. I know that you're still watching over us. We love you, KK.

Auntie misses you so much, but Mommy misses you more. Mommy has trouble getting through each day at all. Please send Mommy some angel kisses. She needs them badly right now. We love you, KK.
May 9, 2008
Darling Kayla, I can't begin to tell you how much we still love and miss you. There aren't enough words to express the hole your absence has left in our hearts. Everywhere we look there are little reminders of you. Send us some angel kisses, Kayla Cakes.
May 18, 2008
You are still very dear to us and we think about you often and fondly. There is a large hole in our hearts that only you can fill. We await our joyful reunion with when we arrive at the Bridge. Please keep an eye on little Emmy Leigh and take care of her until someone arrives to love her, she was only eight months old when she was murdered and I know that she will love you just like we do.
June 3, 2008
Mommy and Auntie miss you so much. Auntie put some pictures on your page. We will change them as soon as we find some little puppy pictures from when we first brought you home. You were so tiny and so playful. We love to remember you little like that and healthy and energetic. Send us some kisses to hold us until we meet you again at the Bridge.

Auntie made you a special memory book everyone can visit. http://preview.picaboo.com/Webview/CoverPage.aspx?user=0000000000024B2A1D&album=0000000000024C0CDF

Auntie feels very bad because it has been a month since I have put an entry on your page. Mama and Auntie have not forgotten you, girl. In our minds and hearts you are still cherished as much today as yesterday. We miss your physical presence, but you will live on forever in our hearts
September 11, 2008
You would have celebrated your eighth birthday last week. It seems unbelievable that you left us almost six months ago. It seems like just yesterday that I was bracing myself to keep from getting knocked down the stairs from your puppy attack and being awakened before the first light by the persistent nudge of your cold nose telling me that you needed to go out. Where has the time gone? We love you and miss you and look forward to our reunion at the Bridge.
September 27, 2008
In a week Mama will be coming to see Auntie and for the first time she will be able to write on your page, KK. She will be able to see for herself how many people have visited and poured out their love and compassion for you and for her. She will be able to be at your candlelight service and share her own feelings in this space. Send us some angel kisses.
December 19, 2008
This morning Diamond doggie came to join you at the Bridge. She is so little and scared. Please watch over her. We miss you terribly, Kayla. The pain is less, but it never goes away. We await the day when we will see you again at the Bridge.
February 21, 2009
To my little girl, Mama was here visiting Auntie. I want you to know that you are always in my thoughts and in my prayers. I think about you every day and can finally talk about you sometimes without crying. I wanted you to know I was here. Send Mama some angel kisses. I got your sign, KK, the last time I was here.
March 30, 2009
Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of your passing. It seems like just yesterday you nudged us with a cold wet nose before it was light out to tell us you needed to go out. It seems impossible that there is no puppy attack waiting when we come through the door. No trip to Fisherman's Beach will be the same without you. Loving you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow. Awaiting the day when we will be reunited at the bridge to spend eternity together, precious girl.
March 31, 2009
Daddy asked Auntie to put a special message here for you. Daddy loves you and misses you very much. He doesn't have access to a computer and wants to make sure that you know that he has not forgotten you. Mama and Auntie love & miss you, too. Lighting an extra candle today to mark the anniversary of your departure, pretty girl.
May 17, 2009
Today is a dreary gray rainy day. The kind of day when Auntie would try to take you for a walk and you would stall at the door and reluctantly go outside, shaking the water from your feet every few steps. On a day like today we would have been curled up side by side in front of the TV sharing our body heat and trying hard to forget how awful it was outside of our warm cozy space. Missing you lots.
June 15, 2009
Auntie will be going to visit your Mama again in a couple of weeks. I will miss your candlelight service for 2 weeks, but other loving people will light your candles in my absence. Please watch over Mama and send her some angel kisses to help her feel better. Loving & missing you lots.
August 31, 2009
Mama is here with Auntie and wants to tell you how much I love and miss you, KK. Send Mama some angel kisses so I will know that you are missing me as much as I miss you.
December 20, 2009
Beautiful Kayla, Auntie hasn't written on your page in a long time. I'm sure that you know that you are constantly in our thoughts and live on in our hearts forever. We still miss you terribly. Auntie is going to spend Christmas with your Mama. I will make sure that she has all of your beautiful pictures on her computer, so she can look at them all of the time. Christmas without you will be especially hard for your Mama. Please send us some angel kisses, so that we will know you miss us too.

Pretty girl, today is the second anniversary of your crossing the Bridge. Mama, Daddy & Auntie miss you more than ever. Mama has your box with her all of the time and your pictures and your collar. Your toys are stored for our reunion with you at the Bridge. You are in our thoughts and prayers each and every day. Until we meet you at the bridge, we love you, Kayla.
September 4, 2010
Happy 10th birthday, Pretty Girl.
March 28, 2011
Auntie hasn't written on your page in a long time. In 3 days you will have been at the Bridge 3 years. It seems impossible that you have been gone that long. It seems like just yesterday that you were greeting Auntie at the door with your special "Puppy Attack" and caring for us when we were sick or sad. Mama still has your toys stored for our reunion at the Bridge. Love you lots, KK.
March 29, 2011
It doesn't seem possible that you've been gone for five years. Easter Sunday marks five years since you crossed the Bridge. Mama and Auntie still love and miss you very much. We remember fondly the wonderful times we had we had together and all of the things that made you special and unique. We look forward to the day when we will all be together again for all eternity. Send us some angel puppy kisses, pretty girl.

Mama is on her way across the bridge to you. Please take good care of her until Auntie can join both of you.
Auntie hopes that you have found Mama and are taking good care of her. Daddy and I are so lost without her. I hope that she got one of your special "puppy attacks" when she came and that the two of you are playing catch with your favorite balls in the lush meadows. Missing you both lots.
August 24, 2013
Mama joined you back in June and Auntie is missing both of you terribly. Hope that the two of you have found each other and spend all of your time together. Love you lots.
September 28, 2013
I don't understand, KK. Lots of people write in your guest book, but no one is writing in your Mama's. Missing you both lots.
March 10, 2014
You have been gone for just under 6 years and Mama has been gone for a little over 9 months. Missing you both terribly.
March 31, 2014
Today marks 6 years since you left us. I hope that you and Mama have found each other and spend happy days together. Miss you both lots.
March 7, 2016
You have been gone almost 8 years. I still think about you lots and hope that you are taking good care of Mommy since she joined you in 2013. Missing you both lots.
April 3, 2017
You have been gone 9 years and Mama has been gone almost 4 years. I miss all of our times together. I miss the puppy kisses and the "puppy attacks" as I came in the door.I miss our long walks together and how protective you were of Mama and I when we were sad or sick. I remember well the day you saved me when Duke attacked me. Love you lots KK.
