To our beloved B.J.....this poem has helped us get through the
loneliness of your passing for we know that you will be waiting at the
other side of the Rainbow Bridge.....
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an
animal dies who has beed 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 have 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 miss someone very
special to them who had to be left behind.
The animals 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 begins to quiver. 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 meet you
cling together in joyous reunion never to be parted again. The happy
kisses rain upon you 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 together you and your special pet cross the,,,,,
