Default Re: This past three weeks has been the longest three years in my life.

Here's something that might take the sting out, my Mother sent me this after I lost my partner in crime of 15yrs.

The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

My heart goes out to you and Sandy, Fred.
mojo, fysh and fredaevans like this.

Words fail to express what I'd like to say to you Fred. I'm very sorry for your loss and dread the day this comes for us with my entire being. God bless Husky.

Thank you Sir. Rainbow Bridge has been sent to me six times today, you're number seven. Couldn't get through the first read, crying to hard. Had to take a walk about and collect myself.

Spent most of the morning/early afternoon looking at photo's of the dogs (other is Sandy my Yellow Lab). Glad I'd taken lots.

Fred
