When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for
all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends
are warm and comfortable. All the animals that had been ill
and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt
or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember
them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals
are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each
miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one
suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes
are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to
run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs
carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted,
and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling
together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The
happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress
the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting
eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent
from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
YOUR MEMORIES LIVE ON FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.
