LOVING TRIBUTES To our babies who are gone... but never forgotten
"All creatures possess an immortal soul. They just come in different shapes..." Hippocrates
I THOUGHT I SAW YOU HERE TODAY
We were so very close, we two but I had to let you go. I hope that you can understand it was because I loved you so. No more pain, no aching limbs no earthly ties that bind. No dimming eyes, no sleepless nights you've left them all behind. I lost you many months ago and gained a broken heart. Yet, I feel you close to me although we are apart. Sometimes when I'm all alone, I feel you by my side. As if to try and comfort me, through all the nights I've cried. I thought I saw you here today out the corner of my eye, Felt soft brown fur against my skin, heard the faintest sigh. So wait for me at Rainbow Bridge until we meet once more. Then we will walk together again through Heaven's open door.
Riley 11/09/2010 - 09/02/2011
Riley was a happy
and mischievous marmoset monkey-boy that brought joy and laughter to
his human family. Riley loved being the center of
attention and very much enjoyed his status as "Little Chief" He
was independent and full of life. Although his life was short, he was
here with us long enough to fill our hearts with forever memories.
Mommy and Aunt Aimee love you so very much. When the tears have dried,
you will be remembered and make us smile... you always did make Mommy
and Aunt Aimee smile. Sleep peacefully, little boy.

Precious little Midas was rescued by Mommy Julie last year. However horrific his conditions and how negative his only experiences of humans may have been, he somehow knew that for the first time in his short life he was truly loved. He blossomed and grew under the watchful care of "mommy" and soon learned the joys of treats and snuggles and playing in open spaces. His daily calls and happy chirps were proof to all that knew him how wonderful his life had finally become. Following a sudden illness, Midas crossed to rainbow bridge and is now waiting for the day that he and mom can be together again. Mommy has a broken heart but Midas can tell her that she was his gift... that she was sent to him so that he would know what it felt like to be truly loved. However short our time is here on earth, to know we were loved is the biggest blessing we can receive. Rest peacefully little one. Not a day will pass that you aren't remembered. You will forever be a little angel riding on mommy's shoulder and walking in the sunlight.
If tears could bring you back... you would be here.
If missing you could but turn back time you would be here.
If my breath could be your breath a piece of my heart be your heart a part of my life offered for yours you would be here... and I would be whole.

A BRIDGE CALLED LOVE
It takes us back to brighter years, to happier sunlit days and precious moments with us for always. Fond recollections treasured in the heart to bring us ever closer to those from whom we had to part. There is a bridge of memories from earth to Heaven above.... It keeps dear ones forever near. It's the bridge that we call love
No Stone need stand where he sleeps...his life is engraved forever on our hearts........
Go Joyously into the spirit and the springtime of youth,
Glory once again in your health. Run free amid the
Sniff the tantalizing smells among the wooded tangles of the
Sleep in the warm sun and hear nature's song.
And when you
grow weary of the green hills and fields of Rainbow Bridge,
follow the bright
strand- forged of love which forever connects us.
It leads to the garden of my soul where a warm welcome quietly awaits your coming..
Maya February 8, 2008 - December 17, 2009
Precious little Maya came to mommy Julie only a few short months ago when she was rescued from a life of pain and sadness. For the first time in her life, Maya knew love and kindness and joy and made her gratitude known every day. Her willingness to once again trust and her capacity to show love were remarkable given her circumstances. At last she knew the joy of companionship and the freedom to run and play. She loved sitting in the sun during the day and snuggling into bed at night with mommy. She passed quietly in her sleep, knowing at last what it felt like to be truly loved. I'm sure she would want mommy Julie to know that she was the answer to little Maya's prayers and that she waits at Rainbow Bridge so they can be together again. Goodbye little girl. You touched so many lives while you were here.
Andrew...January 14, 1995 - November 25, 2008
In Loving Memory
Weep not for me though I am gone
into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul at rest
there is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
for all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
the fear now all is gone.
Put these things now from your thoughts
in memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
remember not my strife.
Please dwell not upon my death
But celebrate my life!
Andrew, mommy Cheri and daddy Wayne's darling boy lost his battle following
a brief illness only one year ago. Andrew was a big, strong boy and stories of
his gentleness and joyful spirit endear him to all who knew him. From taking
showers with his daddy to playing childlike in the sun, the unconditional trust and
affection that he showed to those who shared his life can't help but make you smile. Mom tells the story of singing "You are my Sunshine"to him his last
night, and Dad holding him as he peacefully drifted away. Andrew's story is one of unconditional love
shared and a happy life lived; and now as he impatiently waits to play with mom and
dad again, he knows that not a day goes by that he isn't missed. Good bye,
precious boy. There are no words to express how very much you were loved. You will forever be mommy's little "Sunshine"
IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY
If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane. I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken. No time to say "Goodbye". You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness. and secret tears still flow. What it meant to love you, No one can ever know.
But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more; To remember all the happy times life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten I pledge to you today A hollowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay. Author Unknown

A SECRET FOR CANDILOU
We have a secret, you and I that no one else shall know, for who but I can see you lie each night in moon's glow?
And who but I can reach my hand before we go to bed and feel the living warmth of you and touch your silken head?
And only I walk tropical paths and see ahead of me your small form racing with the wind so young and free.
And only I can see you climb in every tree I pass. And when I call, no one bit I can hear you cooing in the grass.
Precious Candilou Van, beloved fur daughter of Mommy Gayle will live forever in the hearts of those who knew her. Though time may lessen the unbearable pain of loss, the memory lives on and the love is with us always. Our time apart is only temporary. So, sleep peacefully...patiently for now dear, beautiful girl. Know that someday you will again feel the warm sunshine on your face and race joyfully into that wind. I promise that Mommy will be there waiting to meet you and you will laugh and play once more.
Isabella April 24, 2005 - June 26, 2007
God looked upon his garden And saw an empty space. He then looked down upon the earth And saw your loving face.
He sent an angel for you And lifted you to rest Gods garden must be beautiful He only takes the best
He knew you would be suffering And knew you were in pain He understood far more than I You would not be well again
He knew the road ahead was rough He knew what was to be So lovingly he closed your eyes And whispered "Come with me".
It broke my heart to let you go But know you weren't alone My heart and love were at your side The day God called you home
Pretty Princess Isabella, loved fur baby of Mommy Gwen was taken much too soon. Her life, however short it may have been, was filled with love and pure joy of life that affected all her knew her. Isabella will be fondly remembered far beyond her presence here. All all of us who have lost a fur baby wishes for her mom to think of her and smile, remembering the laughter and love..all the while knowing that their time apart is only temporary. Good bye sweet girl. You will never be forgotten.
"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary pain."
JOE SEPHIE 2000 - 2008
It's said memories are golden however that be true, I never wanted memories I wanted only you A million times I've missed you a million tears I've cried If love alone could save you, you never would have died In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still In my heart you hold a place that now will never fill If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again. Our family chain now broken my world never the same But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
is the cherished monkey son of mom, Nancy and his untimely passing
leaves a void in the lives of his extended family and friends. Words
cannot express how deeply he will be missed by those who knew him. He
was full of joy and filled the lives of those around him with love and
laughter. His gentle nature endeared him not only to his human
companions but to the other furbabies that shared his life. Joe was one
of the angels that we cannot keep, but only borrow for a brief time He
was here long enough to teach the lesson he had to teach: The true
meaning of unconditional love. In time, may the tears and sadness give
way to the memories of all the times he made those who knew him
smile....I understand from those who knew him best... that's what he
would have wanted. Good-bye Joe Sephie...sleep peacefully, sweet boy.
Lil' Joe...so handsome in his jean jacket
Do not stand at my grave and weep
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 rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.
Joe is the much loved monkey son of mom Polly Custis. Sadly this
precious, loving friend and companion lost his battle with spinal
meningitis on November 13th, 2008. From all of us who have lost one of
these beloved companions, our thoughts and prayers go out to Polly and
her extended family. We know how much Joe was loved and how desperately
he will be missed, not only by his mom, Polly, but by his brothers,
Skipper and Louie, and his "person" sister Chloe. Lil' Joe leaves
behind a fond memory to all those who were blessed to call him their
friend. The important thing is.... Lil' Joe knew how very much he was loved. Good bye sweet Lil' Joe...you will never be forgotten.
I'm Still Here
Friend, please don't mourn for me I'm still here, though you don't see. I'm right by your side each night and day and within your heart I long to stay. My body is gone but I'm always near. I'm everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I'll never depart as long as you keep me alive in your heart. I'll never wander out of your sight I'm the brightest star on a summer night. I'll never be beyond your reach I'm the the warm moist sand on the starlit beach I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around and the pure white snow that blankets the ground. I'm the fragrant flowers of which you're fond, The cool clear water in a quiet pond. I'm the first bright blossom you see in spring, The first warm raindrop that April will bring I'm the first ray of light in the sun's morning shine and the face you see in the moon is mine. When you start thinking there's no one to love you, talk to me through the Lord above you. I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on trees, and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze. I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep. I'm the smile you see on a baby's face. Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace:
