01-10-2009 8:33 AM -- By: ,    Critters.com memorial:   Miss Mindy Memorial
It was one year ago today that my precious Miss Mindy decided she would be a brave little girl and cross the Rainbow Bridge by herself.  I cried as she left, but knew she knew best.  This year has gone by so fast and there is still so much that reminds me of her around the house.  I thought the hurt would go away.  She is in my heart and will always be.  Please stop by and let my baby girl know her Pawpaw is ok, and it will get better.

I just want to tell my friends at Critters that you are still in my thoughts and prayers. I haven't been visiting lately. I'm just not in the right state of mind to visit all the babies right now. I'm trying to fight off some sadness and it becomes so difficult when I see the faces of all the babies and know what their families are going through. It was difficult during the holidays for many of us. I've tried to stay in touch with some of you by e-mail, but I haven't been visiting the Critters site much. I hope you will understand and please know that I haven't forgotten you or any of your little ones. And for those who are recently bereaved, please know that I am with you in spirit. I understand. You are not alone. We are in this together, and even though I may not be visiting the site much lately, you are always in my heart. It's a long, slow process. I'm sure many of you will understand. I've simply hit a bump in the road, and once I'm over it I will be back. My love and prayers to each of you.


01-09-2009 3:09 PM -- By: Tammy,    Critters.com memorial:   Peanut Memorial
I would love to invite everyone to visit my baby Peanut's page. She was the light of my life and I miss her so much. I can't believe that I have been without her for a year now. It seems like just yesterday that she left me for Rainbow Bridge.  Being Peanut's mom was the best job ever and God I wish she were still here. I love her so much and I miss her more than words can say. So come on by and see my beautiful baby. Thanks, Tammy

It will be 1 month tomorrow. I cannot believe its been a month already since I had to say goodbye to my baby boy. I try to dwell on the good memories, but my heart is so broken that even a small moment of time unbusy brings me to tears. I feel as though I will never heal. I know all the right things to say and do and feel but I cannot get past this pain. I dreamed I was with him and we layed downed together and went to sleep. I  know God is taking care of my baby but I need him  so much in my life. He is the best of me. Keto came along after I had lost my Papa and filled a painful void. He gave me everything and I feel like I fell short of returning his attention. I love him very much and will always regret not staying home from work to spend more time with him. I will always question if I let go too soon. I tell him Im sorry every day. I wish for one more hug, one more kiss and most of all one more time to say how much I love him.

She sure is a cutie!!!


01-08-2009 9:18 AM -- By: Stacy, Minn-Minn,    Critters.com memorial:   Minnie Memorial
Good morning, everyone!  Could you stop by Marla Marie's memorial today and leave a nice note for her mommy, Donna, it is her 1 Year Angel Day and I am sure it will make her smile to know that her baby has not been forgotten! Love to you all!


01-08-2009 2:20 AM -- By: Rose,    Critters.com memorial:   Odie Memorial
Thank you to all the kind people that have sent me messages of support. I hope all our beloved pets are playing together and we will see them again some day. I'm sorry for everybody's losses and we're all in this together. I'm glad to be able to communicate with others that understand what I'm going through. God bless you all. Sincerely, Rose(Odie's mom)

01-07-2009 7:01 AM -- By: Rose,    Critters.com memorial:   Odie Memorial
Odie left us just before Christmas and we are so heartbroken. I especially miss my "little cat" . This was the first cat I ever had and I'm the one who found him, actually we found each other. I picked him up from the parking lot at work. Nothing's the same without Odie.  He will always be in our heart. I feel bad that it was such a busy time that I hardly got to spend any time with him the last couple of days of his life with all the running around I was doing. I still expect to see him running around the house. Like I said "Nothing's the same without him".


01-06-2009 8:04 AM -- By: Tracie Lil Joe's Mommy,    Critters.com memorial:   Lil Joe Memorial
Today two years ago, my Lil Joe slipped away in my arms, how I can remember everything about that, holding him and telling him it's ok Sweetie, Mommy and Daddy Love you.  I miss my baby everyday, he was the joy to me and made me smile. I know he is safe now and healed, living with all of his amazing friends at the Rainbow Bridge and someday I will see him again, but for now my Lil Joe I Love You.. Mommy


01-05-2009 12:17 AM -- By: Paula,    Critters.com memorial:   KARLEY Memorial
Happy New Year to everyone here. I tried to post a link for a song that was written for Karley but I can't post it here in the forum. So I have posted it on Karley's page. It is a lovely song & I hope that everyone enjoys it. Thank you, Paula


01-03-2009 11:58 PM -- By: Suzie Bragan,    Critters.com memorial:   KETO BOY Memorial
It has been another long week and longer nights. I visit Keto's memorial under his favorite tree in the backyard often. Although it breaks my heart, it also helps and makes me feel nearer to him somehow. I feel so empty and know that life will never be the same witout my shadow. Keto got me. He was and is everything good in me. He knew when I was sad or angry or happy and shared every emotion with me.  He can never be replaced. I have 2 other babies but Keto and I were inseperable. I feel like my heart is breaking and I feel so alone in my thoughts. I pray for this horrible pain to leave me. It is as if I am scared to face another day now. It is effecting my work, sleep and my marriage but I do not know how to feel "better". I put on a face to go to work but on the drive home I begin to feel anxious waiting to see Keto only to get home and he is not there. I dream. I smell him. I hear him. I miss him so much it hurts.

A Very Happy New Year to all the Critter's Family members, and their most precious beloved fur angels!  Kisses and Hugs to all those many precious fur children that have gone to heaven. You are remembered and loved.


01-02-2009 1:04 PM -- By: Janice Giampaoli,    Critters.com memorial:   Dusty Memorial
I ask that you please visit this precious dog's site.  Except for myself, and my sister Gina, he has never been visited by anyone, including his former family and friends.  It makes my heart feel so sad for him.  I can't imagine what has happened.  This poor dog has nothing on his site.  No picture, details, nothing.  Please give him TLC!  Let him know that he is remembered.  Thank you.

Janice

To all the special friends iv made on critters, i wish you all the love and happiness for 2009, and for us all to be there for each other in our low times. You have all been a great comfort to me and i will always hold that friendship close to me,

Happy New Year to all, and a special thank you to MARC AND SHARON,


01-01-2009 3:09 PM -- By: Scott and Cathy DeBlois,    Critters.com memorial:   Doogie Memorial
To all of those who lost friends this past year...may 2009 bring you peace and comfort.

It has been a little over a year since we lost our dear friend Doogie. We still miss him terribly however we now refect on the good times and remember mostly  his quirky nature and things he did to amuse us. We have put the all the bad memories aside and they only sneak back in occassionally.

For those of you who have had a recent loss, I promise you it gets better with time. It is never easy but it does get better. At first it is a crushing pain and feels you may never get over it, but you will...Over time the good memories start to dominate the recent bad ones and begin to squeeze them out of your everyday thoughts.  They will always be in your thoughts, but try and remember all the love and good times they gave to you. Doogies Mom, Dad, and "sister Maxiluna".

Midnight Blessings at the Bridge

Twas the stroke of Midnight and all through Rainbow bridge,

Not a single fur child sleeping for  there were many hugs and good tidings to give. The squeals of laughter could be heard from miles around, then suddenly a hush fell over the town.

It was the voice of an angel, truly it was, as he stepped forward and said "Thank you God for I am not hungry every night when I go to bed."

Then Simon stepped forward and proceeded to say, "Thank you Lord Jesus I got my present on Christmas Day!" Kit-cat came just in time for Christmas of course.

Just then Little Inky and Willow chimed in at the same time "and Thank you so much Dusty we love you for being our very own Dusty horse!"

Each child gazed at each other with love filled eyes, "Thank you mostly for the love of our parents and the friends by our sides." Happy New Year!!!!!! Love, Christy, Greta, Dusty, Angel, and Hammy Sagar!!!!

Happy New Year our dear Critters family! We are thankful every day that we have a place to come where we can "let our feelings truly show", and not be judged. The impact our companions have on our lives...even after...is something so special it's hard to describe in words. We've bonded here and supported each other from all over the world. We appreciate you!

Thank you Marc and Sharon for providing us such a lovely place where we are able to seek support from people who truly understand our grief, to share our stories and keep our angel's memories alive.  May every one of you have a blessed and prosperous new year!!!

Happy New Year to all our Critters family. We've all met through losing our loved ones, and although that is so very heart-breaking...I am thankful I've come to know people like you who have such love and honor for their pets, and who truly understand the level of grief we experince when we say goodbye to our precious angels. I could not have made it this far without all of you. We couldn't be more proud to call you our friends. Luv, Ebony and family.

Happy New Year to my critters family. You have all helped me so so much to get through this terrible time without my precious girl and I am forever thankful to all of you!  Please celebrate tonight and be safe!Stacy

P.S. For those of you who have asked how my kitten Stimpy is doing, last week he stopped eating while he was still on his last rounds of meds, so the vet pulled him off of them.  This Friday, he may have to spend the entire day at the vet's office so they can check his urine to see how he is doing.  We are hopeful that he had taken enough meds to cure his bacterial infection, but we won't know for sure until he is checked.  Please keep good thoughs for us!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my friends at Critters, and especially to our Babies at the Bridge. It's been snowing all day here in MA. But I think it's white confetti, that means our Fur-Kids are having one heck of a New Years Eve bash. Thanks to everyone for helping me through this year it's been a tough one.


12-31-2008 3:17 PM -- By: Luna,    Critters.com memorial:   Luna Memorial

As each little angel greets the day, they sit and relax, take in a spa day and get dressed for their party, the biggest one’s they’ve seen this year! Hip Hip Hooray, it’s almost A New Years! … And do you know what that brings, one more year to dream …  

 

… all the little angels dressed up in their formal wear, the girls in pretty ivory satin dressed with scoop necklines draped with a strand of pearls, the boys dressed in tuxedo’s and satin top hats …  they head to the main  parlor through the garden  towards the formal dining room where their dining experience awaits them.  Bobo, Christian, Blossom, Dollie, Luna and Happy take center stage and bow gracefully as the hostesses begin to serve the appetizers. Each guest is escorted to their tables dressed with crystal stem wear, napkins sit on top of their plates and  a candle opera grace the center of each table surrounded by little tea lights that sparkle and shine, as servers fill their grasses with bubbly and take their orders, the dance floor lightly lit and each child gladly takes the hand of a special little lady and glides them across the floor, the music is playing and the their little hearts beat as one, you can feel it inside as you watch them glide across the floor, hand in hand, toe to toe, a few kisses exchanged, and bashful eyes sparkle by the moons light-beams flickering light. They kick up their heals and send their grown cascading in a free flowing motion as they flutter and spin across the dance floor. The dimmed alights grew brighter and each child returned to their seats. The servers carried out trays filled with T-bone steaks, mash potatoes with lots of butter and sour cream, there was salmon, tuna steak or white fish for our feline friends, and choice of lamb chops or chicken breast, but no matter they were all seared or sizzled to perfection.

In the center of the dining hall stood a huge crystal ball, it  descended in the center of the room shining ever so brightly white dinner is being served, then after it flew up high to the ceiling and it’s light cascaded around the room setting a somewhat romantic mood. As the day grew on a few walked to the patio, the garden, the beach or the lounge,  they laughed and told stories, even hummed a few tunes, as each one walked up the path they could hear the sounds from the musicians who were playing by the beach … The decorations were beautiful, so elegant and refined, each child felt special not just by the clothes they wore, but by the company they shared, they have more than they could have ever asked for … the music they heard lingered in their minds as they walked the star-studded path hand in hand.

 

They returned to the main dining hall and all were amazed … right in the center was a light glowing brighter than they have ever seen before, as they all gather around it grew brighter than ever before, as they looked up it lifted to the heavens, the light cascading through the sky for the whole world to see .. they sparkled like rainbows bouncing off stars, the light was light fireworks but better by far, for this was not created by man nor machine, it’s the love our children hold inside that shines so bright, it shines by day although we can not always see but I can feel their warmth inside of me, and by night and the close of a day, brings us one step closer to where our heart resides, next to our children, our love of our live … Each child runs and dances at the clock strokes Midnight, lots of kisses and hugs and noise makers of all kinds, glowing sticks flashing as they wave them to the air, it send out sparkles that seem to float in the air, it’s magic you see and it all because of you, you gave them your love … they will always love you.

 

They tilt their glass and lend a shout … HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! As they kiss and hugs that simple gesture sent that rainbow soaring to new heights, up, up,  over the rainbow” where only angels fly … caught amongst the wings of angels,  in the hearts of all who love you,  they dance and they sing, spinning and twirling to the wee hours of the day … as they walked along the beach they looked up and wished upon a star, and they said we’ve in heaven, but it won’t be home till you’re here and join us … in the whisper of the winds you could hear each one say, “we love you”  as they sent us kisses spiraling our way … not just to the parents but friends and those they have come to know … with a loud roar they scream … HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! We love you, night-night!

 

Luna closed her eyes … and says, “I love you; each one of you from the bottom of my heart, now we are happy and whole and one day you will be too! Luna looks to the water and send all the parents a wish, “the love that grows inside each one of us … also grows in you”. All the little angels gather around and send off lots of little kisses  and warm heartfelt wishes …  all our love now and always … from your little angels above, we love you always, forever in our hearts. As each child climbs in to bed the stars rise above, forever and always … you’ll be a part of us.   Luna & her mom Nadine
