09-19-2009 8:49 PM -- By: a friend,    Pet's name:   
  I stood by your bed last night... I came to have a peep. I could see that you'd been crying, And you found it hard to sleep

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me. I haven't left you. I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast... I watched you pour your tea. You were thinking of the many times Your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at my grave today... You tend to it with such care. I want to reassure you That I'm not lying there.

I walked you towards the house As you fumbled for the key. I gently put my paw on you... I smiled and said, "its me."

You looked so very tired As you sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know That I was sitting there.

It's wonderful for me to be So near you everyday, To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, Then smiled... I think you knew That in the stillness of the evening I was very close to you.

And when the time is right for you To cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to meet you And we'll stand there side by side.

I have so many things to show you! There's so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out, Then come home to be with me.

Hello everyone, I'd like to thank everyone who visits Cochise's page and leaves such kind words and sends prayers. Each are appreciated. I regrettably have to ask for prayers for my brother and his family who just came home to find their sweet dog Jewels had been hit by a car and had to have her put to sleep. Today is a difficult day for his family and if anyone has time, please say a quick prayer for them all. Cochise's passing has been a day to day struggle, as you all know through your own experiences, and becoming a part of this Critters family has helped a lot. Thank you all, everyday I appreciate you and this group.

09-18-2009 1:30 AM -- By: Karen,    Critters.com memorial:   Simon Bagley Memorial
I would like to thank everyone for stopping by on Simon's 1 year Angelversary. It was a hard day for me, but all of your kind words and thoughts helped me through. I will be visiting all of you and your babies soon. I'm gonna spend the next few days working on Simon's 1 year page.  I've just been unable finish it yet, it's been a sad week for me. Thanks again my Critter's family, your kindness meant alot.

Hugs, Karen


09-17-2009 3:03 PM -- By: Elizabeth,    Critters.com memorial:   Roo Memorial
Thank you again to everyone that has left me such kind messages. It has helped a lot reading your notes. Things are still hard without her. I'm doing a lot to keep busy and we even got 2 puppies. The puppies have helped me through this grieving process. It was very difficult at first, but each day gets a tad bit easier with them. I miss Roo more than anything though... I hope she's having fun with your pups at the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you all again and I hope everyone else is doing well with their loss's.


09-17-2009 8:24 AM -- By: Stacy, Minnie's Mommy,    Critters.com memorial:   Minnie Memorial
I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and kind words over the past few days as I continue to deal with the loss of my friend, Anthony.  Since his family has decided not to claim him, there will be no funeral.  However, the coroner was nice enough to let me know where he is buried, so I will be able to visit Anthony from time to time.  In dealing with his affairs, I have encountered so many "un-feeling" people.  I really don't understand what is happening to this world.  The only person who had any compassion for the situation was the coroner!  Everyone else is acting like Anthony's death is such an inconvenience to them and can't wait to get rid of me!  I think I am the only person grieving for this man, it is so crazy!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  My wonderful critters family, what would I ever do without you all?  I am hugging everyone through the computer right now!

09-14-2009 8:06 AM -- By: Stacy, Minnie's Mommy,    Critters.com memorial:   Minnie Memorial

I am heartbroken. A friend of mine died last night. I can't make any sense out of it. He choked on food that both he and the nursing home knew he wasn't supposed to eat. He called me on Friday, begging me to come get him and I told him he was safer there than "basically" living on the streets. RIP Anthony--I will love and miss you forever!
 
I have asked my Minnie to watch over all of my loved ones, both furry and human, and to PLEASE keep them safe. It is on days like this that I can truly feel how short and precious life really is!


09-13-2009 12:59 PM -- By: Deb and Kia,    Critters.com memorial:    ~ Kia~ Kuvasz ~Murphy Memorial
Thought I would share this with every  one  that we did not leave it for..........

When a dog offers you his heart
Accept it with a smile
For his love will last a lifetime -
Which is such a little while.

When a dog offers you his heart
Take it gladly and with pride
For he will be a faithful friend
Ever by your side.

A dog loves you because you're you -
Not for how you speak or what job you do
You could be short, tall, thin or fat
Or ugly as sin, he doesn't care about that.

A dog knows if you're good or bad
He can see inside your soul
When he decides you're okay
To earn your love is his main goal.

When you're sad, he'll comfort you
And kiss away each tear
You may even wake up in the morning
With a cold nose in your ear.

When eventually the time comes
And the lights in his eyes dim
A new star will shine in Heaven
In remembrance of him.

You'll gaze up at the midnight sky
And you will hear him say -
"I'm so glad you were my human
We'll meet again some day!"

So, if this poem has caused a tear to fall
That's because you love the dog who's giving you his all
Go travel on together, happily paw in glove
He's the only one who'll ever give you unconditional love.

When a dog offers you his heart
Accept it with a smile
For his love will last a lifetime -
Which is such a little while.


 


09-13-2009 11:03 AM -- By: Carole and Maggie Mae,    Critters.com memorial:   Maggie Mae Memorial
I just wanted to share this with my Critters friends. It was one of the first sayings I posted on Maggie Mae's tribute when we said goodbye on August 11th. I've seen it being posted on several tributes in their guestbooks. I wanted to share it with you all. I loved it the moment I read it when I found it in a person's tribute on VM. Hugs!

Dear Critters Family ~

Our beautiful boy, Pumpkin, lost his battle with Chronic Renal Failure today.  We assisted him to The Rainbow Bridge at 3:40 PM and already miss "our little lion" so much.  We know he met up with his beloved Taffy, Patches and Angel...and we know he already has so many wonderful Critters friends to surround him with love.  Although we knew this day was coming, Heaven knows it is devastating.  RIP sweet boy. 

xoxo Joy

 

 

 


09-09-2009 8:51 PM -- By: Suzie,    Critters.com memorial:   KETO BOY Memorial
Thanks to all my critters family for remembering Keto Boy's angel day. Your words touch my heart and help my pain. I wish I  would stop dreaming. The nights are so long and my sleep so short. I tell myself all the positive things but my heart just can't heal yet. I am so sorry I had to make that decision that day. I can't forgive myself or tell him Im sorry enough. My life is forever changed because Keto was a part of it and it is forever empty without him. Keto was the best  of me. He was with me through s many bad times and with him I could face anything. He was my best friend and I am lost without him. I pray my heart heals soon.


09-09-2009 5:53 PM -- By: Jeff and Joe Ann,    Critters.com memorial:   Christian Memorial
We would like to thank everyone who visited Christian's memorial.  Today makes 1 year and it is still so very hard.  We miss him so very much, but we know that one day we will all be together and until then we know that he is taken care of by his friends at Rainbow Bridge on his Angel Day.  Thanks again to all.


09-09-2009 5:08 PM -- By: Michele - Ginger's Mommy,    Critters.com memorial:   Ginger Memorial
Thanks to everyone who visited Ginger on her Birthday.  Bless all of you for the courage and strength that you have given me through these tough times.
 

I know that I have missed many birthdays and angelversaries, and I apologize for that.  My computer at home is broken, so I am not able to visit like I used to.  I keep everyone of you in my thoughts and prayers daily, and hope that you all are doing ok.

Love, Michele - Ginger's Mommy


09-05-2009 3:50 PM -- By: Suzie,    Critters.com memorial:   KETO BOY Memorial
I hope my critters family are doing well. It has been a hard week. I have fallen back in my depression and find it hard to laugh again. Its been so many months since my angel left me and I thought I was getting better. But, a cloud has been over me and I can't seem to let it go. I adopted another baby name Sybil. She looks nothing like my Keto. I thought because she is so loving and has many of his charectoristics that it would help. I already love her, but, everytime I look at her all I can think is she looks nothing like my baby. She follows me around and never leaves my side. She give me kisses and cuddles with me at night. And yet, I am still left so sad and empty. So many regrets of my decision. So many thoughts of what I should have done. My heart is so broken. I need him so much. I miss him so much I could die to be with him again. I haven't come very far have I?


09-05-2009 1:01 PM -- By: Elizabeth,    Critters.com memorial:   Roo Memorial
 I just want to thank everyone that has commented on the loss of my baby yesterday. It was the hardest day of my life to date to go through that with her and say goodbye for the final time. It really helps to see your kind words and support of understanding what I went through.... and continue to go through. I looked at your memorials and my heart goes out to everyone on this site who has lost their loved one. Thank you all so much again, it meant a lot to me... and Roo... 


09-04-2009 9:24 PM -- By: lisa ,    Critters.com memorial:   Puck Llewis Memorial

thank you all for keeping puck and his mom company ... for we all know and understand the pain.   i am not grieving alone...i grieve with company of family

 


09-04-2009 7:09 PM -- By: Elizabeth,    Critters.com memorial:   Roo Memorial
 I just created Roo's memorial today... she was laid to rest around noon today. I lost my baby to Lymphoma cancer - she was only 6 1/2. Very tough day for me... my life will never be the same without my Roo. I'm waiting on her ashes to place in a special Urn for her. I love and miss you dearly Roo!!!! <3

09-02-2009 12:06 AM -- By: pat,    Critters.com memorial:   fayeroe Memorial
I haven't been here as much as I'd like to be in the last few days. I was assaulted in January and Fayeroe died in February. I'm having some PTSD issues right now and don't feel that I can post very much as it brings both things back up. The police definitely think that my assaulter killed Fayeroe because I filed charges against him. Please keep us in your thoughts. Pat


09-01-2009 7:26 PM -- By: Kari,    Critters.com memorial:   Chloeanne Memorial
I just wanted to Thank everyone for sending such lovely Birthday wishes for Chloeanne.  We miss her so much and this had made the day a bit easier knowing how many people care.  Thanks again and healing thoughts to everyone..  Kari

Dear Critters Family .. I wanted to ask each of you to keep one of my local best friends, Christina and her husband George, in your thoughts and prayers as their beloved kitty Herman passed away last week and they miss Herman very much.  Herman gave them 17 wonderful years and it was his time to head off to Rainbow Bridge to be with my kids and all of your's.

I appreciate each of your thoughtfulness as Christina and George travel this journey that all of us have gone through.

Thank You so much ....  Charles
