This is a hard day, to be sure.

The third Angelversary.   I know it must seem like yesterday that Sammy was in your life, yet also seeming like it has been at least 10 years. At least that is the way it is for me with♥ Maddie.Often, I am alarmed that more than two years has passed and then sometimes it seems as though it has been at least ten years since I last held that Funny Bunny in my arms.

Charles, I know you have your memories close to your heart today, more so than usual, and I know you are hugging your other fur-kids more than usual tonight and I am sure that this is the same way it is for Sammy tonight. Somewhere, somehow, that love, you for he and he for you--- is out there, a REAL thing, a form of energy in and of itself-- in the strength of it.

Take care tonight &Always,

Maddie's mom,Sherri

Dearest Charles,
I believe I figured out what the "review" word was so I will avoid it this time around. Having experienced myself, all of the bitter and the sweet that an angel day has to offer just 5 days ago, I can truly understand how hard it is.  My wish for you is that you do something today that was special to you and Sammy; a car ride to a special place, a walk down a favorite path or eating a snack you often shared together. I told you that Princess sent me a craving for a soft serve ice cream cone, something she dearly loved so I would know the thought was from her. Yesterday I was able to have one in her honor and now the craving is gone. Her special way of letting me know she has not forgotten me like I have not forgotten her.  I imagine Sammy is right beside you willing a thought or action into your mind. 

The friendship Sammy and Princess gave to us as their parting gift is treasured. You will be in my thoughts all day today. Look for a special surprise soon.

Dear Charles aka : Sammy's Dad!!

Forever Dad and forever our memories so sweet and heartwarming of our sons awaiting our reuniting in Heaven. I wanted to remember your boy's day as you did my Joey last month.  Their Angelversary is only 3 weeks apart.  Yes 3 years has gone by fast but it seems like yesterday.  I have many remembrances right here in my room by me all day.  What a sweet face that boy Sammy has; I am looking at him as I type.  Know you are loved by many but especially by your Sammy.  He and Joey are friends and we shall meet one day and share that unconditional love that only our animal babies give us.

God Bless, Gail

HAPPY ANGEL DAY SAMMY!  Your 3rd with us!

There are some days when all seems quiet, like walking down a lonely trail … but you never know what life will bring you …  Sammy shrugs his shoulders and smiles … “we were just made for each other”.
Luna sees Sammy sitting in the grass watching the wind blow the long green blades of glass as the clouds circle above, she walks up behind him and whispers in his ear, “So how is your dad doing today?” and sits beside him; Sammy smiles and says I can see his tears. Oh Sammy do not worry, those tears are the symbols the heart sends when it misses us, Luna stands and takes Sammy’s hand, a few more angels come, and a few more … and before you know it they made a huge circle … Luna whispers, “In numbers there is strength” … as they each bow their heads and say a prayer, so Mr. Charles know they are each thinking of him. They all sit in the grass and tell of stories of days past and happy smiles, and then Luna speaks up and mentions a time almost a year ago when they tied a treat on a strong and hung it from the heavens for the world to see, well… Luna hides her head with her paws … You didn’t think xlander and cupcake were barking at birds did you … then she smiles and whispers, “err, we did eventually give them the treat”.  Luna snickers, Sammy laughs, Luke, Dale and Butler’s chuckle, all the angels smile and grin … The heavens are alive with laughter, and our hearts are the place they roam, alive in our memories are the days we shared, we will never be alone. In our mind etched with every fine detail are the days we shared, the happy feelings, the internal glow … so when you are feeling sad, wipe away those tears smile and laugh as though we walk beside you,  in a way we are. Remember Charles, our love will always surround you, no matter where your are or what you do  … Luna looks up and watches the clouds move even faster, she yells. “I think we might be getting rain?” … They hide and take cover as the tear drops shower around them … they feel our pain. But in the kindness of their voices as they call out to you … they say, “you have nothing to fear or worry … we will meet again and we will always be with you” … with the flip of her tail and a shake of their fur the suns rays burst through, know we are all we are because of the love we shared … because of you.
Sending you all our love, always  
Luna, her mom Nadine, and your many friends at the bridge.

What a precious child you had, Charles, and a strong bond that will not be broken. I am thinking of you both today and sending prayers. May God comfort you with the reassurance that sweet Sammy is OK and waiting for you.


We lost our sweet Bonnie the same day and you lost Sammy. She enriched our lives the way Sammy did yours. We are so thankful.

God bless.

Dearest Charles,

This is my FOURTH guest book entry. All of the others went to review. If this one does not show up I will contact you another way. Know I am thinking of you today

04-07-2011 11:52 AM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

Dearest Charles,

Having just experienced all a memorial day has to offer just 5 days ago, both bitter and sweet, I know exactly how difficult it is.

Sammy is undoubtedly right by your side doing his best to let you know that he knows he has not been forgotten and letting you know he will never, ever forget you either.

Charles, please take a minute today to do something that just you and Sammy enjoyed doing together: a ride in the car to a special place, a walk to a favorite spot, sharing a yummy treat or something else. Yesterday I fulfilled Princess' wish for me and got a softserve cone. I know in my heart that by giving me that craving she was letting me know she is still remembering me just as I am her. Now that I have done that I no longer have the craving and my heart is more at peace.

My wish for you is a day of peace and wonderful memories of a friend you loved very much.

Please look for an email from me with a little surprise in it to you from Sammy.

Charles, though today is sure to be full of memories of your handsome angel, Sammy, I hope those memories will bring more smiles than tears . . . more joy than sadness . . . more peace than distress - this is what Sammy wants for you, my friend, as his star shines so bright at that Rainbow Bridge!

Dear Sweet Sammy -- May you feel the love that surrounds you today on your Angel Day, not only by all of your wonderful friends at the Rainbow Bridge, but also by those whose lives you touched while on earth (especially your Dad) who will always love and remember you and keep you forever in their hearts.

Stopping by to honor that beautiful boy Sammy on his third year in the heavens  Oh, Sammy, I juts know your day will be so special and filled with so much love, joy and friendship. You are such a good boy!  I have to admit your Dad's third year Angel page just brought tears to my eyes, good tears. I love it,  and I love the song. Your a very lucky and well derserved boy to have had such a great friend! Here is to you, Sammy, enjoy your day, I just know you will!  Send some extra love down to your Dad, Xander and Cupcake on this bright, special day! God bless you!

 There is many pets in heaven that stroll the fields of gold,

one boy in particular the angels do have a hold.
His eyes are crystal brown his head strong and lean,
one of the handsomest boys the skies had ever seen.
With a bark so deep and low and a walk one of a kind,
friends trot behind him their angel friend to find,
One of the purest hearts to walk the paths filled with so much pride,
with butterflies beside his head and Jesus by his side.
For this fine strong boy had a master that taught him all he knew,
and he brought his wisdom to the heavens where his soul forever grew.
You couldn't fine a more genuine friend as big as he may be,
than this big brown young man that goes by the name Sammy.
