Dear Lord, please open your gates and call St. Francis

"Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion
across the Rainbow Bridge. 

Assign them to a place of honor,
for they have been a faithful servant
and have always done their best to please me.

Bless the hands that send them to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing them from pain and suffering.

Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of their life
with the love they have shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor them
by sharing those memories with others.

Let them remember me as well
and let them know that I will always love them.
And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow them to accompany those
who will bring me home.

Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of their companionship
and for the time we've had together.

And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give them to you now."

4 yr Rainbow Bridge Day


My Dear Sweet Montana,

It has been 4 yrs since you left me.  Where has the time gone?  My life hasn't been the same since you passed away.  I miss you so much!  I think about all the great memories we had together.  I think about those times quite often.  I rarely think about your last days.  The surgery on your tail, you not eating, me still giving you the Deramaxx which ended up killing you.  You don't know how much I regret that.  Even to this day I wish I would have listened to my gut.  You might still be here.  You were my heart and soul.  Bailey was a daddy's girl and you were mine. 

I also wanted to thank you for sending Buddy to me.  As you probably know he passed away July 24, 2015.  I sure hope you were there to meet him at The Bridge.  He brought me such happiness and joy.  He was my sweet Bud Bud!  You did a great job picking him out for me.  I realized we really needed each other.  I know you know his story so I don't need to write it out again.  Besides I posted it a couple times in this blog. 

Bailey is going down hill.  She has, what I believe is Degenerative Myelopathy.  There is nothing that can be done.  I have a harness for her now for when the time comes that she can hardly walk.  She misses Buddy but I know she missed you so much when you passed away.  She hardly ate for 18 mos.  But I am sure you know that.  She only started eating when I brought Buddy home.  I believe he helped heal her heart too.  I worry about her being alone when I am at work.  Please come and keep her company.

Montana, my boy, please come to visit me in my dreams.  It has been a long time since I have seen and felt you.  I miss you so much!  Happy Rainbow Bridge day my love!
