Dear Charles,

My thoughts are with you as I honor precious Sammy on his angelversary, and I'm sorry I wasn't on time. I hope your days are filled with thinking about all the wonderful times you had with Sammy, and know that his spirit lives on. Please take care, and I wish you and your furkids the best.

Charles, I cannot believe that I missed Sammy's second year anniversary yesterday! I am so very sorry. I can't even remember if I came to the site yesterday.....Sammy is up there with all his friends and he is sending down rays of love to you and your little group. He thinks of you often and you will see him again one day. We'll all be there, surrounded by hundreds of pets and we'll greet them one by one....Take care, Charles. xox Pat

Tomorrow will come. The pain will ease,
But you will never forget your precious Fur child.
It takes hope, time, and love for the healing to take place.
Remember along the way to accept, but never forget.

Love lives longer than grief or pain...
All other things pass, but love will remain.
A bond that nothing can sever,
Because love lasts forever.

Our hearts are broken. Our world seems like it has ended.
Our dreams, our hopes, and our future with this fur child are over.
Our precious fur child has died.

God sends his little angels, in many forms and guises,
They come as lovely miracles, that God alone devises.

What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose.
For all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

Like the majestic rose,
A love goes to full bloom,
But like the precious rose,
Oft' times it's set for doom.

The rose fades in its delicate beauty,
Like the life you had planned,
Falling apart like the rose,
Dropping petals in the sand.

The rose cannot maintain,
The beauty it once knew,
The love you cultivated,
Chose to be away from you.

The rose slowly droops,
It falls and its beauty is gone,
Just as the love has disappeared,
From the unity of your home.

You can pick up the petals,
Tho' it is useless to try and replace,
Just as holding on to a love,
That has raveled and became unlaced.

The rose has died and lives no more,
To bloom and show it's pride,
Just as the one you love has succumbed,
To the enticement of life's loveless tide.

As it sweeps back into the sea of life,
All that you have grown to love,
It will again wash life's shores,
With the cleansing powers from above.

Love may be lost, but life remains,
Hold close to it my precious one,
The things that have disappeared,
Can once again through faith be won.

The rose may be quite different,
As it blooms upon another shore,
Yet there is love and there is hope,
For the rose will bloom once more.

I swore that I had written to you Sammy.  Sorry for the day delay. Wishing you a very Happy 2nd Year Angel Anniversary sweet, handsome guy. Kisses and hugs from myself, Duke and all our furbabies family at RB!

Charles thank you so much for leaving a message about Buster.  Like you it's been a hard road without my little guy.  How wonderful that you rescued him (as he did you) and that you continue to rescue pit bulls.  You do so much for the breed itself by showing what great dogs they are.  I would say that Sammy is very proud of his dad and I hope your days get easier in dealing with the loss of this beautiful dog.  Thanks again - Beth

Hello Charles. Visiting to honor your sweet son, Sammy, on his second Angelversary. I'll have to say, brother, that the love and devotion that you and your boy share shines through as evident as Any that I've ever come across on this site. I'm sure that the last two years have been two of the most difficult and painful years of your life. My prayer for you, from this day forward, is that every new day of life for you will bless you with a new and fresh memory of Sammy, an experience you shared together, or one of his unique and precious mannerisms that made you smile, something that maybe time has caused to become blurred, clouded or forgotten. May God bless you Charles. And may Sammy live on forever in the place that he owns and holds most dear, his daddy's big, loving heart. My best to you, my friend. ricky (and Dollie.. ;)

PS: I love you Sammy, you handsome, gentle angel you.

Sammy had such  a beautiful day for his second anniversary, such a perfect day for such a good boy. I'm sure his celebration was grand. I'm sure he gave three winks from the heavens, one for his best Dad, sister Cupcake & his brother Xander.

A Candlelight Glows In Memory


A candlelight glows in memory,

Of the love we still hold.

A life that touched so many,

Treasured gifts as memories unfold.

Our eyes well up with tears,

As we try to be strong.

Yet throughout our remaining years,

For their love we will long.

If we could just remember,

The Lord reaches out His hand.

He'll walk with us forever-

Help our hearts to understand.

Trusting Him to take our sorrow,

Faith He will see us through.

Will guide us towards tomorrow,

Filled with His blessings too.

So honor your precious loved one,

With the candlelight a glow.

Knowing your healing has begun,

As your teardrops gently flow.

I never thought tomorrow would be different, but ~ it was.
I never thought I would stop crying for you, but ~ I have.
I never thought that I would ever sing again, but ~ I have.

HELLO CHARLES AND HIS SON SAMMY ... Stopping by in honor of your 2nd Year Angel Day!

The moon was all a glow,  as the warmth of the heavens will send  billions of stars to appear ... soon as the day becomes night and the stars dangle abve us, jumping and hopping and casting their rays upon the sky, just as the love in our hearts stream through out mind sand out hearts, this day and may days past ... but in hopes of new beginning.

Today is filled with warmth and sunshine, flowers blooming, butterflies dancing and fluttering though the sky, birds singing as they sit amongst the trees and frollic through the hills and valley ... but in the center of Town there seems to be a party going on. All our little gather to and share their deep devotion and love for one another as they celebrate yet another Andel Day.

With a cool breath of summer's air, each litle cild gazes throught the heavens sending their love to the hearts that miss them ... as you close your eyes you can picture  the calmness and beauty that surrounds us, their love. May it be with you today and always. Your pals, Luna & her mom Nadine

When I am gone, release me ,let me go.

I have so many things to see and do,

You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears,

But be thankful we had so many good years.

I gave you my love,and you can only guess

How much you've given me in happiness.

I thankyou for the love that you have shown,

But now it's time I traveled on alone.

So grieve for me awhile,if grieve you must.

Then let your grief be comforted by trust

That it is only for awhile that we must part,

So treasure the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away for life goes on.

And if you need me,call and I will come.

Though you can't see or touch me,I will be near

And if you listen with your heart,you'll hear

All my love around you soft and clear.

And then when you come this way alone,

I'll greet you with a woof woof and wag tail to "Welcome you home".

Hi Charles and precious Sammy, stopping by today to remember Sammy on his 2nd Year Angelversary. I know this day can bring back some difficult memories, and Sammy is missed and loved very much, but that wonderful bond you share will always be with you and I know he will always remain in your heart. Sammy is with so many friends on this special day, and wishing him a wonderful celebration full of love and fun at the Bridge in his honor. Keeping you in my thoughts and sending hugs to all.
~ Remembering You ~

Your time on earth seemed all too brief 
because I wanted you in my life forever. 
And although I really miss you, 
in my heart I know that you are at peace. 
Still, countless times throughout the day 
I find myself remembering you. 
Although I cannot see or hear you, 
I know that you are with me. 
I'll feel you in the warmth of the summer sun. 
I'll see you in the brilliance of autumn leaves. 
You'll be beside me in the peacefulness of a gentle snowfall 
and rejoice with me at the emergence 
of the first flowers of spring. 
I'm thankful for the times we shared 
and the priceless memories too; 
for those memories are a comfort now when I lovingly - 
Remember You.
