This is especially for you, Joyce,
My Dear Cousin,
in remembrance of Molly,
your beloved cat who was 20 years old.

With Love and Prayers,

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I buried you today,
No words can ever express
How much I love you.

I buried you today.

I put away all your toys,
Your food and water dish,
and the mousie toys.
Your litter box is splotched with tears
Down on the basement shelf.

I buried you today.

You are ever in my heart, my sweet, sweet cat,
As you were in my prayers every night.
I buried you today, but you are still with me.

"Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

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 and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her 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......."

Dear Joyce,

May your dear heart be comforted by the knowledge that Molly is waiting for you in a wonderful meadow filled with sunshine and warmth. I have shed many tears while working on this page for you, and I just want you to know that I am hugging you snugly in my prayers, and hope that you are comforted by the awesome reassurance that we will be reunited with our beloved fur-friends one great day!

See you in my prayers,
Shirley's webmistress.
