11-20-2007 1:23 PM -- By: wicki, Sheba's mom, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial Whenever Thanksgiving rolls around, I remember how much Sheba LOVED turkey and couldn't wait to get at it. I also remember how much God blessed me by letting me have my angel queen for nineteen years. This holiday will be very difficult for a lot of us, but I pray God's blessings on all the critters' moms and dads. I'm thankful for all of Sheba's Rainbow Bridge friends and all their parents who have been good friends and such a support system to me. God bless you all. I love you!

11-20-2007 12:39 PM -- By: Cheri Pittman, Critters.com memorial: Coco Memorial The messages keep pouring in. Words can't express how much they've helped me cope with the unbearable pain I feel. Thanks to everyone who have offered their condolences. The sweet descriptions of my baby have given me great comfort. I feel her presence everywhere and the pain is so great. I want to nuzzle and touch her so bad. I'm hearing her sounds in the house, and I feel she is there. I know that I have to go through these feelings to get to the other side, but it is so difficult. Once again, my deepest appreciation to all who have offered their encouragement.
11-19-2007 7:57 PM -- By: Linda, Critters.com memorial: Bailey Memorial I just want to thank everyone who has signed Bailey's guestbook. It really helps to know that someone cares and understands how I am feeling. It is three months tomorrow that we lost him, and his birthday is coming up next month. It will very hard to get through these days and the holidays but I feel like this site somehow eases some of the pain and keeps his memory alive. Thanks again everyone.

11-19-2007 12:35 PM -- By: Darlene, Critters.com memorial: Taz Memorial Cheri, Please, take your time....whenever you are ready to tell Coco's story you'll do it....it's hard to do it so soon after she left you. She's a very pretty girl, such a sweet face & those eyes that melt your heart. I'll check in again to see if you were able to add more to her page. In the mean time, take it easy, let it sink in & take your time grieving...you have to let it all out....I'm still not done "letting it all out"! It's a rough road, ALOT of ups & downs and eventually it will be more happy memories of all the years you had together...right now I don't think there is anything I could ever say to take away the pain you're feeling....I wish I could because I KNOW how BAD it hurts!
11-19-2007 9:54 AM -- By: Cheri Pittman, Critters.com memorial: Coco Memorial Notice to everyone. When my heart gets stronger I plan to add more pictures and stories to Coco's page so keep checking on her to learn more about her. Right now I just need a little time to get through the pain.
11-19-2007 6:57 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Jeannie I admire you for being able to do the things you used to do with your sweet Gypsy Rose. When I read your post I had this image of your baby looking down on you from above and giving her approval. Something tells me Gypsy Rose is making sure Mollie has some of her traits to help you through this sad time.
Yesterday I was out at the park with Mkwaa and Yukon Jack and as they ran through the leaves on the ground and I heard that familiar crunch crunch of the beautiful leaves beneath their paws I remembered that sound from Nvwati as he ran through the leaves......... something so many dogs love doing. Yukon suddenly stopped turned and looked at me and I swear he smiled at me! I stopped and looked above and said "Thank you my precious Nvwati for bringing Yukon to us and for being here with us in spirit today." Im sure others around me thought I was nuts but ask if care? LOL.
Bless you too Jeannie for your entries to Nvwatis guestbook.
They are so appreciated.
11-19-2007 6:50 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Cheri thank you for the kind entry into Nvwati's guestbook.
All of us gathered here were brought to this site over the deaths of our beloved furbabies and we so know the pain you feel. We share your pain.
I was so devestated when my baby died it felt like my heart would explode. A dear friend of mine sent me email telling me to let her and others help carry my pain so I didn't have to carry it all alone. Ironically that email helped me so KNOW that we carry a part of your pain as well.
You can contact me off forum via email anytime you need support.
Take care hon.
11-19-2007 4:08 AM -- By: Ann, Critters.com memorial: Wor Noops(Snoopy) Memorial Hi I hope you are all well.After almost a year of losing my boy i have a new friend. Shes a german shepherd cross and her name is Narla. I never thought i'd be able to love another dog but my love for her is growing every day. I've added a couple of pics of her and will add more.
She could never replace the special bond Wor Noops and i shared, but will bring her own love and memories.
I love you Noops x
11-19-2007 1:09 AM -- By: Jeannie, Critters.com memorial: Gypsy Rose Memorial Amber, I signed Nvwati guest book....twice. The first time it didn't go through so I wrote again. You and Nvwati are certainly worth every word. Thank you.
11-19-2007 12:54 AM -- By: Jeannie, Critters.com memorial: Gypsy Rose Memorial We finally made the journey to the cabin with Mollie. It was very difficult, I spent the day before crying-all I could picture is my beautiful Gypsy Rose on the bed sleeping, like she always did. I wanted Mollie to have fun at the cabin like Gypsy Rose did. It seems that Mollie has some of the same traits as Gypsy Rose-she seemed to know that we were close to something when we arrived. She was very excited. I let her know this was Gyspy Roses' favorite place to go, she seemed to know this was a special place. I cried when I arrived, just thinking of the last time we were there with Gypsy Rose 7/6/07 for 2 weeks. We did enjoy our time, although it rained-we went for many walks, and she cozied up by the wood stove. This will always be Gypsy Roses' special place, we can now make new memories with Mollie. Thank you Gypsy Rose for guiding the way for Mollie and for making her feel welcomed in your special place. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU GYPSY ROSE, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU. I will never forget our precious memories and the unconditional love you gave me. Love, Mommy.
11-18-2007 5:52 PM -- By: Cheri Pittman, Pet's name: Coco Thanks to those who have so far signed the guestbook on CocoMemorial. It helps to know that so many people are seeing her face. The words of comfort also help. The pain is fresh, but it helps to know that I do not suffer alone. Thanks to everyone. My prayers are with all who are suffering the same pain.
11-18-2007 3:46 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Everyone if you can check out Nvwati's website today. I added some native music to his site, appropriate I think, under the circumstances lol.
The musicians are myself and Kathy who drums with Manitou Kwe Singers along with me. Let me know what you all think.
11-18-2007 11:35 AM -- By: Cheri, Pet's name: Coco Amber, thank you so much for your words of comfort. I also visited Nvwati's memorial. He was beautiful. I, like you, had originally attempted to get Coco adopted. She captured my heart and she stayed with me for 14 years. I'm so thankful that I kept her.
11-18-2007 11:08 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Cheri Please accept my deepest condolences. You found the right place to get support.
I am going to visit Coco's Memorial now.
11-18-2007 10:34 AM -- By: Cheri Pittman, Pet's name: Coco I have been in the most indescribable grief since losing my baby on Thursday. This web site and the opportunity to create a memorial to her has helped me so much. I hope everyone gets to see her sweet face. I want everybody to know that this precious little girl existed in this world and brought such happiness to my life. She helped me overcome the darkest days and there were many in recent years. Her strength was beyond measure, and, right now, so is the pain that I feel.
11-18-2007 9:51 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial I would like to say thank you to all who have sent me supporting and comforting emails over the past few days. Bless you!
11-18-2007 9:15 AM -- By: Jake's Moma, Critters.com memorial: Jake Memorial Oh my sweet boy, It's been such a rough week. It's been three weeks and it still hurts so bad. I miss you and Breeze so much. We took Maddy to the woods yesterday and she was so happy but not the same without you and Breeze. I miss your smiles and your love. I hope this week is a little easier.

11-17-2007 3:02 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial I so agree Carole. Bless you and thank you for your kind comments in email.
11-17-2007 11:59 AM -- By: wicki, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial Points well taken, Carole. Thanks!
11-15-2007 11:41 PM -- By: Carole Turner, Pet's name: Thank you Sharon and Marc for the new Birthday page. How compassionate of you to honor the request to add it! Thank you also for everything you do, in keeping this site alive and so well maintained.
I have a personal suggestion for "all" Critters website members, which is truly meant to be taken very kindly. The Birthday Page was created "as a reminder page only" of a loved ones birth date. In respect to our precious companions, it would make it easier to spot a birthday rather than have to search through remarks and emails. I would regret missing a birthday that could very possibly be overlooked and hidden in an array of what should actually be either emails or posts left on individual tributes. If used correctly, we should be able to simply go to the birthday page, and see the pets name and birthday. After we read the birthday reminder, kindly go directly to the pet's tribute that is being remembered and pay respect or leave a comment there. It is also so much more personal that way. Please also remember that not everyone feels the same way, after losing their loved ones...a birth-date might be a very sad time for them. Each person has a different personality, beliefs, and a different path of through the grieving and healing process.
I (and I am sure many others) are very sensitive to "everything about this website". I am also trying to respectfully lead, in portraying utmost respect and appreciation (at all times), to the Critters team who allow us a place where we can gather, to seek friendly support and/or share the most precious memories of our angels. Also, showing respect and honor to the "pets who are no longer with us" and the grieving owners is the purpose we have all joined here. It is a very fragile time when we have to say good-bye to our companions. I sincerely hope that you are able to join me in maintaining a mature and respectful dialog while conversing on this wonderful site. Let's please keep this a friendly place to gather, and remember that our kindness is what will help others heal. The least display of disrespect to "anyone" is also showing disrespect to the precious pets that are no longer with us, and the very people who make Critters possible. Thank you very much.
