There are so many wonderful stories about my Samantha that there is not enough room to share all. She's my most precious little baby and the most loved. One story I will share is this time of season, Christmas. How Samantha always looked forward to the arrival of her Christmas Tree, she would get so excited when it arrived in the house, she would sniff it and check it out. Once it was all decorated she would always make sure to pay it a visit. How ironic that last year she would have passed away 7 days before Christmas, but she did get to have one more Christmas Tree, and with as sick as she was she still found strenth to go and visit her Christmas Tree and tap on a lower branch, which I made sure to keep. She was quite alittle boss also, don't know how she knew what time of day it was, but she sure knew when to tell Mommy it was bed time, she would tap my leg to get my attention and if that didn't work she would walk back and forth to the bedroom, I always called her my bossy little lady. When we relocated to a new home, I bought her a new collar and ID heart with her name and phone number on it, when I brought it home and took it out of the bag and handed it to my husband to adjust it, Samantha jumped up on the sofa and was so excited to receive her new as we called it jewelry. She also liked running and playing hide and seek with her Mommy, we would run up and down the hall into the bedroom and around the whole house. She was never an outside cat, she was a pampered indoor kitty Mommy made sure she had the best of everything and then some. Let me share Samantha's first Thanksgiving, she got so excited about the turkey, I just started to prepare it to get it in the oven and she thought it was ready to serve as is, she couldn't wait for it to get done, everytime I would go to check the turkey in the oven she was right there and raising all kind of heck about wanting to eat the turkey. She didn't really prefer to be around kids or strangers, she would pick who she wanted to go to, but kids were defiantly out all togeather. We have a back deck on the back of our home and that is the only time Samantha would go outside and only if Mommy went with her, sometimes she would go out with her Dad but not that much, we keep the barbecuer there all year, whenever I would go to the laundry room to wash clothes Samantha would come in and sit by the door till I opened it and she would go out and the first thing she would do is visit her barbecuer, sniff at it a few times and then come in. We also have a screen porch on the back of our home and that is another place Manny would like to go out onto, she would go by the bedroom door and sit there also just like the laundry room door until I opened it up, she would also tap the curtain on the door to let me know she wanted it opened and go out and look around and she had a special place to sit and look out to see what was going on in her yard. Manny also liked to have dresser drawers taken out so she could sit for awhile in the dresser, one day she had almost every drawer in the bedroom taken out, and don't even think of putting them back in there place, Manny would be right there to tell you No. As I said there are so many stories that I can go on and on about my baby girlfriend but there isn't that much space to tell. I sure do miss her and love her very much and her Mommy isn't dealing with her passing at all very well, even with Manny's first year coming up, it just as hard now as it was last year and every day is the same. Christmas and Thanksgiving will never be the same again or any holiday for all that matters, a big part of my life is missing|

11/30/15 2:29 AM Good Morning My Little Manny, Mommy, I was thinking of you as always each and everyday and I said I will go on Manny Rainbow Bridge Site and write my baby girl a note to let her know that I haven't forgot about her. When Mom looked and seen I haven't visited since June I was not Happy with myself. Things have been hecktic around the house the past few months. Mom got this genius idea to bring another kitty home thinking that Autumn and Jake your baby sister and brother would like a playmate. Well that didn't go very well at all, it turned out that they didn't like the idea at all, they fought with the new kitty, and between themselves. I waited for a month to see if things would change but they didn't and I had to take the kitty back to the rescue center I got her from, that made me feel sad because I thought that I let the kitty down thinking she had a forever home but wound up taking her back to the center, her name is Kendra. Funny thing though Manny, Mom asked you for help to help Mom find a new home for Kendra, if there was a guardian angel up by the Rainbow Bridge that has nothing to do, send her to watch over Kendra and help her get a new home, and a week after taking her back to the center, she found a new home. Mommy told you Thank You So Much For Helping Mommy to find Kendra a new home. But that is what has been happening at home, but it is no excuse for Mom not to visit you, I should always make time for My Manny Baby, and Mommy will make sure to find time to visit you, Please Don't Be Mad At Mommy,I Love You Very Much And I'm Not, Or Ever Will Forget About You Or Ignore You Ever, Your TO Important To Mommy, Your My Life, My Soul, My Whole World, My Heart. Just want to make that clear to you little one. Mom's not going to make this visit much longer, I'll visit again in a few weeks for your Anniversary of Passing and for Christmas and to decorate for Christmas. I Love And Miss You Forever and For Always and can't wait to be together with you again. Night Night My Little One, Sleep Tight and Know That Mommy is Always With You and Thinks Of You Always. Hugs Kisses And Lots And Lots Of Love My Baby, Visit Again In A Few Weeks. Love You Always Mommy XXXXXXXX OOOOOOOO
12/17/15 3:17 AM Good Morning Babybear, Mommy, I just put up your Christmas Tree and Stocking I hope you like them. Now that's kind of silly for me to say, you always looked forward to your tee. Everytime I do this, how I wish you were home and we would be doing this together, gosh how mommy enjoyed seeing your excitement on your little face to see your tree coming in and how you would be in the room helping to decorate you Christmas Tree, and to see you laying under the tree and playing with the lower branches and ornaments. Mommy got very special ornaments just for my Manny eventhough I still don't put a tree up since you went to the Rainbow Bridge. Maybe someday I get brave enough and get another Christmas Tree in your honor, but you have to let mom know that it will be alright to do so.

12/24/16 3:51 AM Good Morning Manny, Mommy is writing to let you know that Mom put up your Christmas Tree at your Rainbow Bridge and left a present and flowers. Gosh how I always wish you were back home with Mommy so we could share all the Christmas thing together like we did. Mom for the first time since the angels came and took you away from me, we put up another Christmas Tree in the house. It is very hard for mom to try and be brave every time I look at the tree, all I can think of is how I wish my Manny could be here to enjoy her tree, but you know you can come and enjoy the tree with Mommy and Dad and your little brother and sister, let Mom know you are with Mommy, Please Manny. Another thing, don't think because Mom didn't visit for your passing Anniversary, Mommy didn't, I did everything I always do, I sent up the balloons with the fire in them and my special notes written on them and I lit candles in your memory while watching a video of pictures of you while the song A Breath Away Not Far From Where You Are. Sorry for not visiting you on that day but Mommy did remember. 7 years to long to be away from my baby, and you know what, it doesn't get any easier as the years go by like everyone said it would, but how can it when mommy Loves You So Much.

We did Christmas last night with your little sister and brother, and how Mommy tried to be brave and strong while giving them their gifts, but it didn't work, because as soon as they started with mom's help to open their gift Mommy broke down and started to cry, just like I am while writing you. All Mommy could remember was our Christmas's together, I could feel the empty spot in the tree room. it's always like that bear bear, always an empty spot Mommy feels because your not physically here with me. I know you are in my heart and thoughts but I still wish all the time you were here at home with me. Mommy forgot to tell you that I bought you your own Christmas Tree and I decorated and placed by you urn on the sofa we once sat together, it has lights and ribbon and glass bulbs, Mommy made sure it was pretty for Mommy's pretty girl. Well Mommy's Pretty Little Baby I'm going to close for know and I will visit again.
