I wanted to share this post again for those of you who haven't been able to read it yet, and for those of you who have hearts that are heavy with grief. I have written many tributes to and about my beautiful Jasper throughout the five years that he has been at the rainbow bridge, but this one will always be "The One" that is so near and dear to my heart. I sat down at my computer one evening with tears streaming down my face, and I did not even know what I was about to write. Well my words came a mile a minute, with no rhyme or reason, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I somehow channeled his sweet and special spirit into this story. Jasper you are so missed, you are so loved, and I cannot wait until I can hold you in my arms once again. Deux Ames, Un Coeur...

Hi mommy, it's me Jasper. It was so wonderful seeing you in the dream the other night, and when you picked me up and held me so close to your heart, it seemed so real, and it felt as though we were both right here in Heaven. The last thing I ever wanted was for you to have to leave me and go back, but we both know it is just not your time yet. I want to let you know that even though our time on earth was cut so short, and we should have had so many more years together, the time we did have was filled with such happiness, such sweetness, and such a special love. I miss you so much, and I know how much you miss me, as I hear you so often call my name, and I watch as the tears stream down your face when you look through the pictures of our life together, and I can so feel the sadness in every single word you write to me.

 I never want you to focus on our last few days together when I was so very sick, and I could actually feel your heart breaking a little bit at a time, as I slowly went downhill and lost my struggle to stay with you I want you to try to forget that cold, dark night as you walked out of that animal hospital with my empty carrier, oh how I wanted to let you know I was still so close. I tried so hard to stay here with you, and I know you would have moved Heaven and Earth to keep me with you. I heard your prayers to God to save me, I heard your pleas to the doctor to save me, but I was just hurting so badly, and the light looked so warm and inviting. I know you tried so very hard to hold back the tears just for me so that I would not be afraid, always protecting me right up until our very last goodbye. I want to thank you for using every last ounce of strength and courage within yourself to love me enough to let me go.

 I could feel you holding me in our very last moments together. I felt you gently kiss my head as your tears fell down upon me, and even though I know it was the hardest thing you have ever done, I want to thank you for helping me to cross over. When I first started walking across the bridge, I remembered the very first time our eyes met, and I remembered the very first time you picked me up and held me in your arms, and all of a sudden, I was not scared anymore, because you were still with me then, as I am still with you now, as we wait for the wonderful day when we can walk into that beautiful light together. I want you to always remember one thing, I know without a doubt how very much you love me, and I am so thankful we found each other, even if only for a little while. I am so happy that you chose me.

 I'm really not that far away from you, I am only a breath and a heartbeat away, and I can feel your love for me even now after all of this time. Time is so different here at the bridge, we all live in the moment, and there is no sadness or pain here, as we wait for our forever mommy's and daddy's to come home to us. Reach your hand out to the sky, and I will reach my paw out clear across that rainbow, and we will be forever connected by our special bond of love. We will find each other again, and I will come back and visit you. When you feel that warm sunbeam where I used to lay, that is me, when a flower petal gently wafts down and kisses your face, that is me, when you see one single perfect pawprint in the snow, that is me. Don't be sad mommy, just keep looking up at the sky, I am going to send you the most beautiful rainbow ever to make all those broken pieces of your heart come back together again. Thank you for my wonderful life filled with such sweetness and light, thank you for your beautiful love that knows no bounds, thank you for walking with me through the valley. I am so happy that I chose you. Love, Your Jasper

Dear Pamela,

Once again you make my eyes teary today, but in a joyful way. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful prose. It was beautiful beyond words. I love the perspective coming from your beloved Jasper. It was touching, moving, profound and very deep. I appreciate your sharing that "one" with us. It is very memorable and I know I will read it again and again.

This is absolutely beautiful! I felt like I could be reading that letter from Bubby. The tears poured down my face. It was perfect word for word. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Like James said, I loved it being the perspective of Jasper. I’m a bit speechless just how moving that was. I had to put down my phone down three different times while reading it. It took me back that much!

Thank you again for sharing “The One”!
