In Memory of Sophie

Sophie at Rainbow Bridge
April 1, 1994 – September 11, 2002

Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.

There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly looks up! The nose twitches. The ears are up. The eyes are staring. And this one suddenly runs from the group.

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

Its really hard when we lose someone we love and it is even more harder when we know that we didnt have enough time together.

I understand your grief and I share it with you. Let us hope that we get some sunshine in our lives through the wonderful people we have around us….

@A. Aroah – Thanks, that is really sweet of you to say. I still think of her often and miss her just as much as the day she passed.
