poem For Bob M,

Remember Me Always


Remember me always, but do not grieve for me too long. I have tried always to comfort you in times of sorrow, and have made every effort to add joy to your life. I never wanted to cause you pain.

Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have eternal sleep in the earth I have loved so well.

Please, after your period of grieving for me, make room in your heart for another. You are the kind of human being that should always have a friend like me to love. Your kind and gentle heart should not be wasted on my memory for too long. Give love to another. I know your new friend will never take my place, because we had something very special.

It may not be quite the same, but a new devoted and loving companion will in time, become special in their own way.

You loved me very much and I loved you. My spirit will always be with you, and no matter how deep in my sleep, my grateful heart will always be purring for you.

Hi Charles, Kids and Angels. i wanted to stop by as you and Sammy were in my thoughts. I want to share with you what just happen about an hour ago , here at the shelter. I had just set my lunch down on my desk which was a tuna salad sandwich and a tossed salad and went to get a coffee in the next room.When i got back with my coffee,Samantha was just finishing off my sandwich.ha-ha-ha. I said "SAMMY" you just ate my lunch,she looked at me with a silly expression on her face as if to say that's not my name"I'm Samantha".ha-ha-ha and continued to finish off my sandwich. That was the first time i ever called her Sammy, i don't know why but who knows maybe  that was some sort of sign which i may learn about. That seemed so strange as i never call her Sammy and neither does Doris. That was my experience today. I had a salad and Doris's cookies for lunch. Ha-Ha. Doris tells me i spoiled Samantha because i always share my lunch with her.I guess i was taking too long getting my coffee so she just helped herself. Ha-Ha. We are suppose to get a nice weekend so the shelter babies will be happy as they can get outdoor play.

Take care and i hope you have a great weekend.

Sending Hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Hello From Heaven

It's me again from Heaven With a message from above Feel my spirit all around you... As I sprinkle you with love

I have watched you, as your tears flow I have heard your silent screams I know you sleep with visions... Of me visiting your dreams

I have come and sat beside you Placed my paws upon your face Wiped away the many teardrops I so wish I could erase

I have watched you every day now Seen such pain within your eyes I just wish that there were some way I could help you realize...

I am happy up in Heaven In this peaceful loving place Where I will be here waiting To welcome you with my embrace

You will join me here in Heaven When your time comes you will see Leave your Earthly cares behind you Travel on to where your free

I have heard you ask to go now... but there is more for you to do I promise I'll be waiting In your time to come get you

Until that day does happen Feel the love I send your way Every single moment... Of every single day.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby & Bob M, thank you so much for your visit, it is always good to hear from you. And thank you for visiting the page for Brutus and Jessica, they passed on long ago, but they will always be close to my heart. They were both sweet dogs. I have been doing well, just very busy with work lately.... but that is a good thing!! Today was the first day of sunshine and warmer weather after a few dreary days of rain, it was soooo welcomed. I love the sunny days, it really lifts my spirits. Hope you are all doing well and hugs to you, and precious Cupcake and Xander.

The Rainbow

 for Critters    as we all have lost beautiful souls


Feeling down in the dumps
no where to turn
the rain pouring down
upon a face.

Feelings are low...
standing here
in the pouring rain

A heart is broken,
Lord what can you do.
A friend gone away...

The rain has stopped.
the sun shone...
reflects, upon a sad face.

The bow came out...
in between the clouds.
reminded me one of God's covenant...

The colours of the bow shone so brightly across the sky
reaching from one side to the other..

As a prayer said for God's Grace.

The Rainbow is a sign of a Eternal promise.

Hi Charles, Sammy, Bobbie M and Gabby ... thank you so much for stopping by on my 2nd angel day. I can't believe it's been that long, in my mind I can remember everythign as if it were yesterady. I finally finished her page and I think she would be proud. Although I am not surrounded by people who feel as I do, it's a comfort to know I have my critters family who understands.

Only a heart so giving and pure would know what a special gift thier love was. Hugs, Nadine & her little girl Luna

The Greatest Gift


I always knew this time would come
From the very first time our eyes first met
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then and I keep that promise now.

You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal,
You will not know the loss of a life remembered, now gone.

It is for me alone to make this decision.

The price for the bright joy and pure laughter.

You brought me during the time we shared.

I am the only one who can decide when it is time
Just when I need you most, I must let you go.
It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready,
For without your guidance, I will not know
When to lay my grief, my guilt, my anger,
My sorrow and my selfish heart aside
And give you the last gift, the greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.

The pain of this moment is excruciating,
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow,
And my heart drowns in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken and I have listened
And unlike other decisions I have made,
This one brings no peace
For if there's one thing I have learned...
Unconditional love has a condition after all.


I must be willing to let you go when you speak to me,

I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours.

Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find the ones who have gone before you.
You are free to leave me now, free to let your spirit soar.

I pray I will find comfort in my memories...
In the dark and lonely days ahead
I cannot say I will not miss you,
I cannot say I will not cry,
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.

But I promise you this...
as long as I live...You will live
Alive in my mind, forever in my heart
And this will be my greatest gift...
Sending you away
It is the measure of my unconditional love...
For only the greatest love can say
“Goodbye, go find the Rainbow Bridge
and yes, we'll meet again.

Loving you has been the greatest gift of all.”

Karla Bertram....

Charles and Cupcake ,Xander, and Sammy, Gabby and Bob M,  Thanks for stopping by Charles . I hope you are starting to feel better, mouth surgery is the worse. Funny what you wrote about  Xander,   bouncing back so soon,  glad all is going ok with him, its been crazy here  with a dump truck of mulch,  been   working in Kia's gardens  May you have a enjoyable rest of the week and good weekend

04-15-2010 9:54 AM -- By: glenise,  From:  

Dear Charles, Cupcake, Xander, sweet Sammy, Gabby & Bob M.      You sure have a fine looking family, Charles.    Yes, beautiful weather here!  I'm lovin' it!  So sick of the dreary, dark winter months.   Sorry it took me couple days to write.  I am in community theatre and wer'e getting ready for production this weekend. 

Thank you, Charles, for visiting us.  Thank you for reading again about Daisy.  That is very thoughtful of you to take the time to do that, but I also know that is the kind of person you are, always thinking of others.  As coincidence would have it----I was reading your pgs, also.  It was on your Sammy's 2nd Angel day.  May I say once again that you have such a touching, deep-loving, heart-felt tribute to your son.  I love your journaling. Just beautiful, the love flows and flows.  Again, I want to Thank you for stopping by.  I don't know what we would do without our Critters Family.  Your all #1 in my book!!    Sincerely, Glenise & Daisy

ps   hope your healing well, sounds like you are.

04-14-2010 8:58 PM -- By: Lauvern ,  From:  

Hi Charles and kids. Just stopping by to say Hello as i  had some free computer time. I hope you are recoveringwell from your surgery.We have had beautiful weather here for the past few days. The shelter fur babies have been spending their days outside and loving it. Of course Samantha ,Tyson and Toby are enjoying the outdoors as well. All i need now is to get my allergies under control which should happen after all the trees bud,etc. I am looking forward to working in my flower gardens at home as well as on the shelter grounds. That will be another couple of weeks before i can do that though. Hope all is well with you.

Hello Sammy, Gabby and Bob M. ......Sammy we have a few kennels open now so help Luke keep watch over Fur babies that might need my help and send me signs. KK?

Charles , there is always lots of  Granny's cookies around here. LOL. My desk at the shelter has a big tray of different types of cookies daily on it. I never know what kind we are all getting that day till i get there but they are always good. I think granny wants me to put on weight or something. LOL.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

 Hello, here's a long overdue thank you for being the first one to sign our guestbook last month.  I've been pretty self absorbed in my pain since then, but re-reading your kind words helps to soothe the hurt.   I see Sammy just had his 2nd angelversary.  So sorry for your loss of such a handsome and loyal friend.  He is watching over you now, free of pain and illness.  Thank you again for your kindess to us.

04-13-2010 5:10 PM -- By: Amanda,  From: North Carolina  

Thank you so much for your kind words on Zeus' guestbook. Your Sammy was and IS a gorgeous baby. He hold a special place in my heart as well. I'm sure he and Zeus are playing together in a much better place. Zeus helped raised several pitbull puppies to adulthood as I used to show and breed them. He was especially fond of their puppy playfulness, as was I. I know we will meet again someday, but I'm thankful to know he has someone with him until then.

Hi Charles and all your Fur-Babies. I'm stopping by to say Thank You for visiting with me on my Boys first year Angel Day. It was a very hard day for me. All my memories came flooding back on the terrible day last year. It was so nice that people took the time for a visit yesterday.

04-11-2010 10:51 PM -- By: ,  From:  

I was sitting on a rock by a brook of calm waters,
Feeling lonely without solace,
And weeping a storm of tears.
Angels from Heaven came to my way,
To whisper good news in my ear.
One Angel said that,
The Lord sent me Joy and Peace,
And I should have nothing to Fear.

Another sweet Angel held my hand.
She encouraged me: "Never fail, always stand.
For my Rights so dear, which follow my heart.
God would show me the way with His Light and Art."

A third lovely Angel gave me a hug.
She said, "I should never fear not to be loved.
For what Jesus, our Lord and Saviour,
For my sins, shed His blood on the Cross,
mocked, tortured and crowned with thorns,
for me again, to be born,
To save my soul and to live and to be loved."

Suddenly, a white beautiful bird,
Flew over and landed on my shoulder.
It moved its feathers in a way, as if expressing Joy:
The Holy Spirit came to announce me that,
Jesus was coming on my way.
At that point in time,
I saw a bright Light on top of the calm waters.

I caught a glimpse of a glowing serene image,
Like standing on waters without gravity.
The brightness and serenity of its beauty was overwhelming.
Then, I heard a Miracle of soft voices
Singing praise, serenade of soothing words,
Which I could not have understood clearly.

In any way, the soreness and tears stopped.
So, I knelt down on my knees, opened my arms
To the sky and said:
"Oh!! You are my good Lord Jesus and Saviour!!
You have soothed my pain and healed my heart.
I shall always be Your humble servant.
My Lord Jesus Christ!!"

His Holiness was majestically Divine.
The Lord looked upon me and spoke just a few words:
"Oh!!...My child, weep no more, feel no fear!!
For what as Your Heavenly Father,
I shall be carrying you all the way to the end of times,
From trouble waters to a safe, calm haven Sea.
Weep no more, Fear no more..."
Then, His Holy image vanished into the lavish sunset.
And, I was at Peace again.

A Dogs Soul

Every dog must have a soul
Somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances
Are buried with his pride.
Where he decides the good and bad,
The wrong way from the right,
And where his judgement carefully
Is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place
Where every thought abides,
A sort of close acquaintance that
He trusts in and confides.
And when accused unjustly for
Himself, He cannot speak,
Rebuked, He finds within his soul
The comfort he must seek.
He'll love, tho'he is unloved,
And he'll serve tho'badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away
The times when he's abused.
Altho' his heart may break in two
His love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog
An understanding Soul!

Charles, Your Sammy was one handsome boy,  my thoughts are with you

04-10-2010 3:17 PM -- By: ,  From:  

I'm right here in your Heart

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see.
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled
with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry,
the way you did today, While thinking of the many
things we didn't get to say, I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you. And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand. That an angel came and called my
name and took me by the hand, and said my place was ready
In Heaven far above, and that I'd have to leave behind, All those
things I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye,
For all of life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that that could never be,
For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of Worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me, From his great golden throne,
He said, "This is eternity, and all I've promised you.
Today your life on Earth is past, But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last, and since each day's the same day,
There's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true, Though there were times you did some
things, you know you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven, And now at last you're free,
So won't you take my hand And share My life with Me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your Heart

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I the king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

Hi, Charles,  Have a good weekend!Sammy wanted me to bring you this song.

Angel Wings

At the ending of the day when I'm weary
After a waterfall of tears have all been cried
And I'm feeling like the skies will always be dreary
Nothing's there to fill the emptiness inside.

I lay my head upon my favorite pillow
Just close my eyes to block all the sorrow
wonderin' where I'll ever find the strength inside-
to do it all again- tomorrow.

And then I feel it-
inside me.
I feel it-
around me.
Like a gentle hand just wiped away the tears-
and held me close to wash away my fears.

It's you, my angel, watching over me.
And I know no matter what tomorrow brings,
You'll be here to wrap me in your angel wings-
your lovin' angel wings.

The sun comes up, it's time to face the day
and I think that things are going to be all right-
But as the day wears on my nerves begin to fray-
I feel the hollowness that creeps in every night.

And like clockwork all the tears begin to fall
As I look at my reflection in the glass-
the eyes looking back at me make me feel small-
and I ask, my God, how long's this going to last?

And then I feel it-
inside me.
I feel it-
around me.
Like a gentle hand just wiped away the tears-
and held me close to wash away my fears.

It's you, my angel watching over me.
And I know no matter what tomorrow brings,
You'll be here to wrap me in your angel wings-
your lovin' angel wings.

Thank God for your angel wings
