God saw you getting tired, and a cure not meant to be
So he put his arms around you, and whispered, "come with me."

With tearful eyes and a broken heart, we watched you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, you're now at peaceful rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

The Rainbow Bridge

by Jerry Lyden

In New Jersey, there is a place,
Where Setters go to find their space,
There they heal and mend and find new homes,
It is the place of the Rainbow Bridge.

Their new lives start there,
With food and fun, love and care,
They learn to play and to romp and run,
Especially over the Rainbow Bridge.

And when their time with us is done,
They return to Phil and Deanna, more to run,
And wait for us all to come,
And join them again, Over the Rainbow Bridge.



Until we meet again....
A tribute to those waiting for us at the rainbow bridge.



A POEM FOR THE GRIEVING...
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...
-Anonymous

...Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you..
I loved you so - 'twas Heaven here with you.
-Isla Paschal Richardson

They all brought us so much happiness and just left us much too quickly. May the shamrocks fall softly. These dogs just seem like they are all a big part of our family and some of them, only stayed with us being their foster parents for a few days..... May their sweet memories in time heal all of our pain.

The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link again.

Footprints
The Lord will always walk with you along life's blessed beach, His footprints there beside your own, ever within reach. Two sets of footprints, side-by-side, from dawn to setting sun, yet there may come a day sometime when you'll see only one. But do not think the Lord has left you - Nothing could be more wrong. It's just that He has picked you up, to carry you along.
