The Rainbow Bridge

Thank you to all of you who reached out to me via email, Facebook and by cards 13 days ago when I lost Gracie.  I ache for her presence.  I have her remains back, and they are hidden in a place where I know they’re safe until I have the courage to transfer them to an urn.


One friend sent me this poem…


Just this side of heaven lies the Rainbow Bridge.
When a beloved pet dies, it goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
It makes friends with other animals and frolics over rolling
hills and peaceful lush meadows of green. They are a
healthy and playful as we remember them in days gone by.

Together, the animals chase and play, but the day comes
when a pet will suddenly stop and look into the distance…
bright eyes intent, eager body quivering. Suddenly
recognizing you, your pet bounds quickly across the green
fields and into your embrace. You celebrate in joyous
reunion. You will never again separate.

Happy tears and kisses are warm and plentiful,
your hands caress the face you missed. You look into
the loving eyes of your pet and know that you never
really parted. You realize that though out of sight,
your love had been remembered.

Gracie and Me
