Hi Charles and all your wonderful Fur-Babies. I always enjoy when you stop by for a visit.. If you ever get to PA I would really like to meet you in person. I can't afford to do anything and even if I did I don't fly. Maybe some day we can get a bunch of our Critter Family together.

Thank you for your kind words, Charles. Your Sammy was a very lucky boy to have such a wonderful & caring daddy.

Your face has left a memory
Of kindness, warmth, and safety.
Although I know they're gone now
Your love will always be with me.

When a quiet tear streams down my face
I think of your love's  embrace.
When a day I'm down and blue
I will always think of you.

Of all these emotions empowering me.
I know that you are always here
Whispering "I love you" in my ear.

I wish so much
You didn't go
But I guess you had to
For reasons I do not know.
I miss your face
Wiping a tear.
I miss  always
Holding me near.

I can't wait til the day
I see you once more
But I know until then
My heart will be sore.

Now each of my days
I will live for you
Sometimes it'll be hard,
But I can pull through.

I know you'll be watching
And smiling above

Hi Charles and Sammy.Thank you for stopping in on my boys Angel Day.It helps to recieve all the wonderful messages and to know our babies are all together until we see them again. I cherish my babies memories and also you and all our Critters friends as we all know what it feels like to really love our 4 legged children just as if they were our children because they were. They just happen to have 4 legs.

Hi Charles and kids. I have to share some great news with you and hope it makes your day as it has me smiling ear to ear.

The four bullies i told you about, have now found their forever home. YESSSSSSS Cowboy has now got two sisters and two brothers.YESSSSSS. They were registered  and licensed yesterday. I will fill you in on more details about what we have learnt about where they were found, etc. later as i am on my way to the shelter. I have to say they could not have found a better home.Lawrence is now the proud daddy of five Bullies.

Sending hugs all around.

I feel so lucky to have a friend like you to take the time to remember Barbra on such a meaningful day. Adjusting to life without her at times has been hard, just knowing there are others that have experienced the loss of a special pet and that I am not alone really helps. I miss my girl so much she was my world. I would like to say something that I seldom say. “Thank You for Caring”

Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M,

Thank you for the B-Day wishes for Jed-means so much that you remembered him. Some days are just so tough to get through-guess it true what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. huh?

How are Cupcake and Xander doing? Give them Big Hugs for me! Hope all is well with you. Sending Hugs and Much Love, Kelly and Jed

Hi Charles and kids.Thankyou for your post and Email and as usual your kind words. I know you will enjoy your get away and i know your babies will be well looked after. I think we all need to get away for awhile.Your cold and windy weather is certainly hanging around. The weather is certainly mixed up. We have had beautiful weather for awhile now ,which is unusual for us. Who knows we might be back into winter by July. Ha_Ha.

My girlfriend, Trina  who i went to high school with and her husband are coming in from Florida by motorhome and should be here by Thursday. They will be around my area for about a month. I am certainly looking forward to spending time with them. We will be celebrating Luke's Birthday on the 16th at his shelter. We are holding a open house with lunch for all in honor of his Birthday. I am making his favourite Birthday cake which is lemon cake with cream cheese icing which he loved and had quite often, and of course always on his Birthday. I will have Toby ,Tyson and JoJo with me of course. On  Sunday night we are going to one of Luke's favourite camping resorts  with our motor home as well as Trina and Bud will be there along with two other couples and their kids. We will  send our Birthday kisses and love to Luke via Balloons from there. We plan to stay there a couple of days ,depending on the weather of course. Although i know it will be a day of mixed emotions i will celebrate his Birthday as i always did when he was with me. I know he will be with me in spirit as he always is.  I  wish you a wonderful holiday. I will email you before you leave.

Take care.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven’s love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again.
Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet
Fly, fly do not fear
Don’t waste a breath, don’t shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don’t wait for me
Above the universe you’ll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won’t forget.
Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light.(unknown)
Who brighten our days.
In all kinds of wonderful,
Magical ways.
Their thoughtfulness comes,
As a gift from above.
And we feel we're surrounded,
By warm, caring love.
Like upside-down rainbows,
Their smiles bring the sun.
And they fill ho-hum moments,
With laughter and fun.
Friends are like angels,
Without any wings.
Blessing our lives,
With the most precious things.

Dear Charles and Sweet Adorable Sammy, Gabby and Bob M,

I wanted to thank you so very much for remembering Max on his 1 year Angelversary, and for your kind wishes and thoughts, we both truly appreciated it. I know I have been very slow in getting back to everyone, I guess it has taken me a very long time to come to terms with things. And just as I was getting better, then both of my other furbabies became sick and needed emergency operations. Naturally it sent me into a tail spin once again, and being overly worried and concerned as to their outcome I shyed away from Critters and tried to deal with one thing at a time. I am thankful to say they are both doing well and I can now turn part of my attention back to my Critters Family. Also, if you were one of those that left an unsigned beautiful poem or two, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. All of them over the past have been truly beautiful and touched me deeply. Please know that even in my absence from Critters you and your precious babies have always been in my thoughts and prayers. Once again, thank you so much and Hugs from Corrie and Max.

Hi Kids .. just dad here.  I wanted to post a little note to tell each of you ... Your Daddy loves and misses you so much.  Today I was cleaning the area where I have your ashes and I could not help it .. my tears were coming down.  Though I know you are not in pain any more and are restored to health ... I will always miss you.

Sending all of you lots of hugs and kisses.  I, Cupcake and Xander LOVE, LOVE ... each of you so very much.

Hey Sammy and charles thank you very much for the birthday wishes. Bless you both.

05-08-2010 2:40 PM -- By: Henry,  From: NY  

Hi Charles, Thank you for stopping by.I am doing pretty good. The weather is crazy though. Last weekend it was in the 80s and I got a sunburn working out in it,now this weekend it is raining and in the 50s and tomorrow they are calling for 40 plus mph. winds to make things worse. We have not gotten snow but I am with you in wanting some decent lasting nice weather to plant and enjoy ourselves with. I have had to cut down alot on my time on the computer as my right hand keeps getting numb and hurts when I am on it for more than a few minutes. Hopeing it is from having to use it more because of the left hand getting hurt and it goes away as I have already had the carpel tunnel surgery and they said if it came back the surgery would be much more involved.Hope your having a nice weekend and warm weather heads your way soon.  Henry

hello charles and kids.

thankyou for the mother's day wishes and your thoughtfullness always. we have been having a busy week here as you probably already heard but it has been fun to see all the excited kids at the carnival.there is candy floss and carmel and candy apples everywhere.i think we all even got some of that candy floss in our hair. when lauvern was running the floss machine and i looked at her ,she looked as if she had gone gray with all the extra work.ha-ha but as i got closer i could see the wind was taking the floss as she was twirling it in the machine and blowing it everywhere including in her face and hair. what a site. ha-ha-ha-ha. of course we all had a laugh at her expense. ha-ha-ha. lawrence told her we weren't laughing at her ,we were laughing with her.ha-ha-ha. lawrence was in for a surprise when lauvern asked him to work the floss machine as she needed a break and shower. ha-ha-ha. all in all we have been having a great time as are the kids and all the fur kids at the shelter. of course samantha has been tired as she has to be everywhere at once. ha-ha. she is having a ball and getting way too much attention from all. are right, i have been baking cookies all week. i will soon be called the cookie monster. ha-ha.. i hope you are having good weather and have a good weekend.

hugs and blessings to all.

Hi Charles-

I had to send this to you. It's a note form Sammy, Xander & your Cupcake. You are indeed their Mommy in alot of ways. Have a good weekend & great Mothers Day & know they watch over you daily.

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad

 Hi Charles and precious Sammy, Gabby and Bob! Thanks for visiting. Glad things are warming up in your area, and hope you can get out and start planting in your garden soon. It is warming up here as well, but still are getting frost in the morning, so can't put out the tender plants yet. Hope you are doing good. How are Cupcake and Xander doing? They are so precious and adorable, I bet they would love to help with the gardening too... ha ha!! Juji loves to dig, so I have to be careful where to let her loose in the yard, or I wouldn't have anything growing. But I know with time she will settle down and be a good helper. Hope you have a very nice weekend!!!! Hugs to all, Gina, Saada and Juji
