"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 and 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 gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing;
they 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.
The bright eyes are intent, the eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to break away 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 his 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 pass over Rainbow Bridge together ......."

"One who has lived never truly dies,
but crosses a bridge into the next life
where all is peaceful and the breeze always whispers of lasting love.
May it ease our sadness a bit to know that our precious memories will be
a bridge between this world and the next,
between our loved ones and ourselves."

Pet Bereavement Message Board.
There are many wonderful, loving BridgeParents in the world, who know exactly what you are going through. When you talk about your angel, and shed the tears, it makes room for healing. (Grief shared is grief diminished.) Please join us. We love to learn more about the angels that are keeping our beloveds company, at the Rainbow Bridge.

Please be sure to read the lovely story of the "Dragonflies"
which helps to explain just how close our angels are,
and why we won't be seeing them ......... for a little while.
