Hello Gina and Saada,
Gina no need to Thank me, Saada is just beautiful, I came by to visit her alot while I was doing cds for Deb of KIa's site, and I visit Kia a lot , I miss that beautiful girl so much, even If I only saw her once in a while , she touched my heart,
What a spirit she had and her eyes were out of this world, she was a Mommy's girl like Saada, I found this poem and left it for Deb so thought we leave it for you also, I came on to say good night to Kia, Deb is not feeling well, have a good wekend and give your Juji a lot of love
Though you are gone, every once in a while
You come back to me
And for a moment it's as though you never left
Your closeness overpowers me
And I feel as if I could stretch out my arms
To take you and hug you
And hold you during these precious moments
Which logic cannot define
Sometimes it happens on the darkest of days
When my courage turns to bitter despair
As I contemplate the lonely years that I must face
Without you being here
...Then at some difficult moment
You reach out and send me a sign
To confirm that you're watching over me
That life will turn out just fine
Other times I feel you at unexpected moments
It's like you are simply "checking in"
Other times your signs flow to me in other ways
As natural as the tide comes rushing in
To me, these gifts are like glistening diamonds
On a shore of commonplace sand
Passed over by oblivious people
Who cannot see them...or hardly understand
But for my eyes, and heart, only
They are prisms that send forth the light
And reinforce the hope that I must carry..."

Sorry Gina - Have no idea why the poem spaced that way when each paragraph only had one space between them. Go figure!

Hi Gina... I have been thinking of you and Saada a lot lately and thought I would stop by. I hope things are going well. I wanted to tell you that the other day when I was working at the Lake I spotted a woman walking a Rhodesian Ridgeback. As you know, I never see that breed around here in my area, so it really caught my attention. It then occurred to me later on that it was around this time last year that I ran into that woman who was vacationing at the Lake who had recently inherited that young female R.R. after her sister passed away. Remember me telling you about that and about how minutes earlier I had been sitting on a bench thinking about how much I missed Molly and then this woman came up with her R.R. and it rested its head against my leg and then laid across my feet just like Molly used to do? Well anyway, I am wondering if it is that same woman perhaps back vacationing again with her dog. I will keep my eye out for that dog -- it really is a beautiful R.R. Looks just like a cross between Saada and Juji. By the way, I thought that was funny that Juji was stealing all the peanuts that Pete was hiding -- sounds like something Teddy would do. Boy, she is a beautiful dog, just like her big sis! Speaking of Saada.... I do want to honor that today is the 29th (not that I typically remember the monthly dates). I know that sweet, precious Saada is never far from your mind, and that she will always be in your heart. I came across this poem and it reminded me of the bond you shared with your beloved girl. Just know that you are in my thoughts.
My Treasured Friend
Treasured friend, I’m glad I found you;
Our friendship is a gift we share.
I could be myself around you,
Safe in your love and care.
I miss you when you’re out of sight;
Our friendship bond was meant to be.
I think of you with great delight;
You’re almost part of me.
Through fun and fears, play and tears,
We helped each other heal and grow.
I prized our time--the days, the years,
More than you can know.
Just harmony for me and you,
The two of us--a perfect blend.
I’ll cherish you my whole life through,
My dear and treasured friend.

just wanted to stop by a little early in remember Saada tomorrow on her angel day,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 -
Yes Miss Kia be in her glory a friend just signed her guestbook and up north they got over 2 feet of snow record breaker for this time of year,

Hi baby girl, have fun today at Duke's birthday party. You are always in my thoughts and I love you more than words can say. Yesterday Daddy discovered some old pictures of you he had on an old camera card... my sweet girl, how I miss you so much. All my love and big hugs. Mom

Remember me in quiet days
While raindrops whisper on your pane.
But in your memories have no grief,
Let just the joy we knew remain.
Remember me when evening stars
Look down on you with steadfast eyes.
Remember if once you wake
To catch a glimpse of red sunrise.
And when your thoughts do turn to me,
Know that I would not have you cry.
But live for me and laugh for me,
When you are happy, so am I.
Remember an old joke we shared;
Remember me when spring walks by.
Think once of me when you are glad
And while you live, I shall not die.

Hello Miss Saada, I could not stop by and see Kia or Millie, with out saying hello to you Beautiful girl.
When golden eyes no longer glow,
and we both know it's time to go,
Don't look at me with eyes so sad,
but think of better times we had,
When sunlight did upon us shine,
and happy days were yours and mine,
And through the grass we both did run,
and on our backs we felt the sun,
Think not of this dark final hour,
think not of when our lives turned sour,
Think not of hopelessness and pain,
but think of joy and laugh again,
For in that final act of love,
you released me to heaven above,
Where finally from pain I'm free,
where one day you will join with me,
Where together again we will rejoice,
and you and I as with one voice,
Will in perfect harmony sing,
of the joy and pain that love can bring,
And remember me just as I will,
always think of you until,
At last again I see your face,
grieve not, I am in a better place.

Our Special Angel
God chose a special Angel
when he took your paw in his…
He ended all your suffering
with sorrows own sweet kiss…
You worried about our welfare,
so you lingered a few nights more…
Assuring yourself that we would be fine
before you entered Heaven’s door…
The angels said, “We will be waiting here”,
“Just lets us know when you are ready”…
Your soul whispered back, “I cannot leave yet”,
“I am not sure their hearts are steady”…
On the shores of both heave and earth,
stood loved ones from past and present…
Your heart was literally torn in half
having to choose between your deeper sentiment…
Seeing the conflict in your eyes,
we knew what must be done…
In all of our agony, we failed to realize,
that we were being the selfish ones…
So, in one final selfless act,
we told you to take God’s paw…
So that together, you and he
could cross over to the promise land…
In one final breath filled with
your passion so deep and true…
You took God’s hand and left behind
all of those who truly adored you…
Our only solace is knowing,
that now you are free of pain…
And when God comes to take our hands
that he will lead us back to you again…

Hello Gina and Saada. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit my little boy Buster. I've had so many losses, and I am having a very tough time dealing with another one. I haven't been on Crittres a whole lot since Buster became ill last December. You have no idea how much your support means to me on this grief-stricken day. My heart is with you as well, and your beautiful angel Saada. What a gorgeous memorial you've made for your pretty girl! Hugs, Carole and "the pack."

Remember me with love, not tears,
and think of all of our happy years.
When I was sick, you were at my side
Your tears and fears, you tried to hide..
I know you did your best for me,
but God above was calling me.
The tears with time, will go away,
but the love we shared will always stay.
Now the Lord has set me free,
that is how I want you to remember me...
One day in the future, just over the ridge,
I’ll be waiting for you, standing on Rainbow Bridge.
That gentle breeze that made the wind chimes sing?
That was me, I was there with you.
The gentle snow falling upon your tears?
That was me, I was there with you.
And that little beam of sunlight that danced on the
otherwise shaded deck that day?
That was me, I was there with you.
Until we’re together, never more to be apart.
Remember me with love, I left my paw prints on your heart.
Wherever you are going and whatever you may do,
Just look down right beside you, I will be there next to you.
Remember and Believe

Hey sweet girl, miss you so much, I just wish I could wrap my arms around you again and give you a big hug and kiss. It's been such a rough month and feeling so drained now. You could always cheer me up. I love you and miss you so much. Keep watch over us and little Juji.

I've searched the highest skies
and long for the moment
that I can look into your eyes
I've searched all around me
and here you are
In my mind, you I see
You're in my heart, and in my soul
you have made my life complete
no more searching high and low.
In my heart you shall stay
to put that joy in my life
and keep my sorrows far away.
04-22-2010 9:06 AM -- By: , From:
I am standing right beside you
And I wonder why you cry,
I see such pain and sorrow
I see the hurt that's in your eyes.
Do not wish me back for one last kiss
Please don't wait for me to wake,
Just know how much I love you
I wish no longer your heart to ache.
You need not ever let go of me
Your friend forever I will be,
I'll be always by your side
The tough times together we'll see.
So to my friends I bid you
An oh so great farewell,
Time stands still but for no one
Go and live your lives and tell.
Tell all those that you meet
The old friends and those new,
Although you lost a friend today
You'll get chance to see him soon.
The world knows that I've gone today
But do not mourn for me,
I am happy here just watching
All the world I can now see.
To my family sitting here
And those so far away,
How proud I am of all you do
In each and every way.
I will watch you as you sleep tonight
Be with you all the days,
I’ll be there through the good and bad
My love shall never fade.
Live your life without regrets
And be happy everyday,
For knowing you has made my life
So special in every way.
My time has come to go now
But this is no goodbye,
If you ever need to talk to me
I am always by your side.

Hi Gina.... Wanted to drop you a note to say "hi" and to let you know I was thinking of you and the girls before I fed Teddy his dinner. I hope you are doing well. We have had some beautiful weather out this way for about 2 weeks (except for having temps in the 30's at night). It has been great to finally have dry weather and sunshine! Today we finally got some rain, and at this point we do need it. I was actually home with Teddy today, and we spent the day cooped up inside "playing dog", where I pretend to be a substitute for Ruby. It's a riot really. Teddy really gets a kick out of me chasing him thru the living room and dining room and then letting him chase me in return. Usually the "chase" involves running with "Leonard", his neon orange stuffed octopus. But, oh how I wish I was 20 again! He goes crazy if I do the "play bow" stance...hahaha! -- what a nut! After we both were pooped out, he then spent the rest of the afternoon glued to the front door window just mesmerized as he watched the 5 new baby chipmunks scamper all over my front doorstep. It kept his attention for hours, but at certain points I thought he was going to lose his mind watching them hyperactively scurrying about and teasing him thru the window! Hopefully the weather will be better tomorrow, as Mommy definitely needs to exercise the boy. He has been with his grandparents for the past couple of weeks while I had workmen at the house and was still battling shingles, and he got quite chubby while there! So, we really need to get out and walk at the Lake and chase a lot of tennis balls! Hope things are going great with Juji, and hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Hugs & Best Wishes to You, precious Saada Girl, and sweet Juji.

Just close your eyes, my tired one,
Our peaceful journey has begun.
Take hold my hand, and feathered wing,
Lift up your heart to sweetly sing,
Beyond the pain that holds you here,
I'll guide your soul ... for heaven's near.
Fear not, the brilliant lights you see,
'Tis heaven's trail, we rise to meet.
Let calm and peace surround your heart,
For never do we truly part.
You leave behind on earthly plain,
Your memories, for they remain
Deep in the heart of those you love,
A treasured gift from God above.
The love and care you've given all,
Will stay with them, for evermore;
Within their hearts, you'll always stay,
In prayer, one tender thought away.
While in their time of deep despair,
We'll travel 'mongst them unaware;
Your presence felt by those will bring,
A whispered touch, from new-sprung wings.
For times they wish you to be near,
They'll feel your warmth, your love, your care;
A spark, in memory you'll ignite,
To drift them off to sleep at night.
A quiet touch, a lightened heart,
Is how they'll feel your love impart;
Beyond the bounds of heaven's door,
With angels as you drift and soar.
So gentle one, your time is here,
I've come to take away your fear;
This earthly body cannot mend ...
Your suffering, is at an end.
So take my hand, and follow me,
To rest in peaceful harmony,
Come soar with me above the clouds,
To heaven's gate, where love abounds.
Take comfort now, we've reached the light ...
Your soul released, to angel's flight.

Memories are heartbeats
Sounding through the years
Echoes never fading
Of our smiles and our tears.
Moments that are captured
Pictured in an album
Or a lock of hair.
Images that linger
Deep within the mind
Bit of verse we cherished
Once upon a time.
Through the musty hallways
Of the days we knew
Ever comes the vision
Beautiful and true.
Memories are roses
Full of fragrant sweetness
Never known before.
Life must have a meaning
Goals for which to strive
Memories are lights that burn
To keep the heart alive

Dear Gina and precious Saada: Thank you so much for remembering my sweet girl on her first year Angelversary and for you kind words. I am so glad I did most of the work on her pages early on, for I don't think the last few days I would have been able to do so. From Easter on were probably the worst days of my life last year. I still miss her so much.
Thank you again for stopping by.
