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 the 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.
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.
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.
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.
you cross the Rainbow Bridge together .........
Urns and Memorials
pets mean the world to me and as each one has taken their place in my life
they become a part of my immediate family. When it has been time for them
to cross that Rainbow Bridge, I found that I've got bits of that and
pieces of something else, all reminders of my pet's life, laying around,
or stacked in a corner or put in a box out of sight.
decided to give those special momentos a special place. I'm making
Gourd Pet Memorials. These memorial containers can either be used
for cremains or for that favorite toy, used leash, or marvelous
picture. The containers for cremains are based on body weight,
1 pound equals 1 cubic inch of volume. Inside of all containers are
lined with your choice of silver, copper, or gold lining. On the
outside of the container will be a photo for your pet plus their dates of
birth and crossing over the Rainbow Bridge. You will need to send a
good photo and any extras that you may want to have in or with the
following are some examples. I want to thank the families of Logan
McAuley and Scout Ray. Logan has gone to the Rainbow Bridge and
Scout is kindly being a model. Smatchey is my little girl that
is waiting for me to near that Rainbow Bridge.
