Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

I wanted to check in with you and see how the New Year has been treating you. It has been a rough start for us but I am hopeful that things will improve. Still no word about Bailey's biopsy but I should have it soon.

I hope your kids have been behaving themselves and not getting into the kind of mischief that causes themselves harm (are you listening Cupcake!) 

It has been a very mild and relatively dry winter here. we need snow in the mountains but have little thus far. 

Take care and know you are all thought of often.

Hello Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, sweet cupcake, Xander and Bentley ... Luna blows a HUGE KISS toward dad Charles ... so big it makes Sammy blush. All is well at the bridge, I see you got some snow, Luna looks down at NYC and shakes her head ... geez it comes then goes, and even before it falls people toss salt, )the make believe white stuff), then snickers ... that's why mom has to put the shoes on. but as the night begins to fall the stars come out ... and as each child looks to the sky they think on one particular star and it begins to twirl ... our everlasting love surrounds you always. Many hugs, Luna & her mom Nadine (Lily and Opal too)

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little BobM.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Well here we are over a week into the New Year and I finally am able to visit friends on Critters this year.  I have been sick with the flu bug for over a week now, but I am begining  to feel some better.There has been so much sickness around here that I was unable to avoid it. During the holidays,i was forced to be out in public where many were sick. That along with not much rest finally caught up with me.

The weather here has been very very cold and windy with power outages everywhere but I did not lose power in my area. Thank goodness!! Some people had no power for days but the city did set them up in hotel rooms as well as many took people in to their homes which was a good thing. The humane society took in the pets that had no place to go and gave them shelter until they can reunite with their owners and go back home. Everything seems back to normal now. "I hope".

Thank you for your visits and kind posts as always. Although I was too ill to post, my friends here at Critters were always in my thoughts.

Wishing you and the kids a VERY PEACEFUL and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

 Charles, I can't let the last few hours of 2014 go by without wishing you a happy and peaceful new year with your beautiful furkids Cupcake, Xander and Bentley. For us here, it's also quiet. The new year may arrive without me officially welcoming it, but before I go to bed I will blow a kiss to my dearest Roo at the Bridge -- joined this past summer by Lily -- and tell them to say hello for me to our friends, among whom I have always counted Sammy, Gabby, and Bob M. Happy New Year, my friend.

Charles & Family,

Cinnamon and I are stopping by for a minute to thank you and your precious angels, Charles, for visiting with Cinnamon, and for doing so much to honor and support all of the angels memorialized here, all year long.

Bless you, Charles, for your kindness and generosity of spirit, and for caring for and loving your dear kids Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

May you and yours, Charles, on two legs and four, have a peaceful, safe and joyous new year in 2015, and know that Cinnie and I will continue to honor and support your dear Sammy, Gabby and Bob M in the years ahead.

 Dear Charles: I love your new music on Sammy's page. As you know, I haven't been here in a long time. I'm bawling my eyes out after reading some of Sammy's pages. We muddle through and know that we will be with them again. Tip is with my Mom and Dad now.

I found Tippy's baby picture today! 



12-24-2014 5:45 PM -- By: Cinnamon & Bruce,  From: Rainbow Bridge & Ridley Park, PA  

Sammy, Gabby, Bob M & Charles,

I'm way behind . . . my company worked today, Charles, and we only get 6 holidays each year! . . . but Cinnie and I had to stop by to wish you merry Christmas and happy new year.

And your choice of company, Charles, your beloved Cupcake, Xander and Bentley, as it was for Thanksgiving:  it just can't get any better than that, can it.

I know that Ciinnie, and your Sammy, Gabby and Bob M, will be with their amazing Rainbow Bridge and Critters angel friends, like Princess, Ma, Luke, Rowdy, Molly, wow, so many beautiful souls, and that gives me some comfort, but as you know our angels are loved and missed every single day.

Bless you, Charles, and your angels and kids, now and forever.

OH .. How I am missing you Sammy.  With the Christmas season coming up in a few days, I always remember how it was YOU and ME.  You always showed me nothing but pure, unconditional love.

Sammy, please come to my dreams this Christmas season ... that is the only present I desire .. is to have a dream of you.  Though I think of you always, I want to dream of YOU and ME ... like it used to be.

 Thank you for the sweet visits you have made to Erin's pages over the years. Your words mean so much. Erin just had a birthday on 12/9 & I realized I hadn't been on this site often. But, that doesn't mean that I don't think about my sweet boy. Almost every day there is something that reminds me of him. I have a new boy now, his name is Andre & some of his habits are the same as Erin's. I can see from you page how much you loved your Sammy. He looks like he was such a special guy. I wish you & yours many blessings as we enter into the Holiday season & we remember our loved ones that have gone before. I always say I know that one day we will meet out sweet angels at the RB & what a glorious day that will be. Thanks again for your visits.

 Dearest Charles, and Precious Angels Sammy and Gabby and Bob M. and Little Angels here on Earth Cupcake, Xander, and Bentley, thank you so much for stopping by Missy's Memorial. You are welcome any time, and please don't worry about missing Missy's Angelversary. I don't see how you keep up with all that you do, most of all being such a genuine inspiration for all those grieving here on Critters for their lost ones. Sorry to hear that you've been stressed up there, somewhat. You certainly don't deserve that. We hope that you have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and that you and all your Sweeties and all your family have a relaxing day with such joy. Things are going well down here, but our little Smokey is very ill, and we are down to providing hospice care for him. We will miss him so much. He has brought such love and devotion to us for almost four years now. Love and hugs to you, and I'll try to send you a pic of the little vase of four white roses that we placed on Missy's grave, one rose for every year she has been gone. Bless you.

Dear Charles,

All throughout the year I give thanks everyday for all of my critters friends and family but at this time of year in particular I like to reach out and tell each of you specifically how much you mean to me. The support you give so willingly means the world to me. You Charles and you dear boy Sammy are, as I have told you before, one of my rocks. The loving care you provide to Cupcake, Xander and Bentley is unparalleled and such a shining example to others who do not understand your chosen breed. Thank you Charles for all you do and all you give. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby and little BobM....... Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Just stopping by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful and safe Holiday Season.

I hope all is well out your way. I am still busy trying to get my mom settled into her new place which is not easy as she isn't likeing it as of yet but hopefully in time she will. I do visit her daily which is about all I can do. ...I have not found a new location to move Luke's shelter too but am certainly looking also being very careful with my decision as I don't want to be uprooted again. "Once is enough".We are still working on getting my Mom's house ready for sale as we have the time to do so.

I hope all is well out your way.

Thank you for your continued friendship and have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!


Lauvern and "whats left of Luke's shelter"

Dear Charles:

I want to THANK YOU for stopping by Molly's memorial to honor and remember our precious girl on her recent birthday, and for leaving your kind and supportive message.  Please know that your continued support and friendship has been greatly appreciated!   Despite the years that have passed since Molly's departure, I still really miss my dear old friend and think of her often --- and I suppose part of me always will.  I hope you are doing well and that you are enjoying the last bits of autumn before winter "officially" swoops in (that is, unless you are living somewhere that has already been getting its share of snow).  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a beautiful & peaceful holiday season.
Hugs To You and to all your Furkids

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, BobM.......Cupcake, Xander and Bentley.

Thank you for your visits and kind posts to myself and all at Luke's shelter. As you know I have not been here in awhile due to the heavy workload of trying to get my Mom's house ready for sale as well as tieing things up at Luke's shelter. We have been looking for property to relocate to but so far there has been nothing of interest. We have two places to look at tomorrow which sound and look quite good according to the real estate. They are both in good locations but further from  home which doesn't matter if all else is suitable. I have my eye on especially one of them but will see what happens tomorrow.I am certainly hopeing it is all good.

The weather here is cooler but not as cold as normal for this time of year which is a good thing . I hope it stays that way . "Thinking of the furbabies needing shelter of coarse".

Although I don't come here much due mostly to lack of free computer time, know that my friends at Critters are never far from my mind.

Thank you again for your always kind posts.


Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

 Dear Charles,

I was just re-reading posts on my beloved Colton's webpage.  Three-and-a-half years later, I still ache for him as I know you still grieve the loss of Sammy.

I wonder if we ever did meet in Santa Fe.  I miss New true home.

Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, BobM, Cupcake, Xander and Bentley,

The kids and I are stopping in to wish you a lovely weekend as well a nice Veteran's Day. I will be remembering my Dad as well as the other two and four legged heroes who serve(d) our country. We would not live the free life we have without all of them that is for sure.

It will be a working time off for us. We are having a very overdue new roof installed and have much to do in preparation for the upcoming holidays too. There will be time for walks and treats of course! How boring life would be without the little breaks that make memories and bring joy.  I hope you and your three will enjoy some well deserved time together before you get too much rain or cold temps.  We will have a rare mostly dry day 4 days and will take advantage of them. 

Thank you as always for keeping all of us in your thoughts and for visiting when you can.

 Hi Charles:

Just wanted to drop you a quick message to let you know that I was thinking of you and wishing you well.  I hope that you had a great summer and have been enjoying the Fall season.  I appears that Winter and the holiday season will soon be nipping at our heels! -- hope you can finally relax after all the work you did this summer and just enjoy it all to the fullest.  Hugs to you and "the kids".
Best Wishes To You Always,

My lengthy post went to review. 

So hard to know what I say wrong. I will wait to see if it shows up then try other avenues.
