Sandra Beasley and the
Bereavement, Saying Good-bye
"To feed the soul,
and challenge the mind....get rats." - inspired by Regina -
Just this side of Heaven is a place called the 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 that they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water, and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All of 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 who was very special to them, whom they had to leave behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intense, his eagar body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run away 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 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.
And then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.....
