If you couldn't sleep last night it was probably the noise from the birthday party ... you see, yesterday would have been Rebel's 9th birthday ...... he was only 4 when he was brutally taken away.  Four short years here on Earth but he made a lifelong impression in my heart.  He was such a goofball ....  I am thankful for his presence in my life as he gave me many wonderful memories....they are never with us long enough, but 4 yrs. was just way too short.  I miss him EVERY day and the tears fall as I sit here and type.
But, the bridge kids had a party like no other ..... so many treats and the King Bing band playing so all the kids were dancing up a storm!   Dancing, singing, eating and romping around ...  if you heard lots of "wheeeeee" thru the night, it was my Prince Rebel of BarTa giving all the kitty's rides ... you see, he wasn't very nice to kitty's on Earth but he's making up for that at the bridge.
It was a lovely time they all had ..........
while back here on Earth, we celebrated not only his life but the life of his awesome brother, Rex.  Rex is the most laidback snuggly bug you could ever imagine.  135 lbs. of lovable, fluffy, humbleness.   I've tired to not dwell on why they were shot that day, I try not to dwell on the why did Rebel die and Rex was spared.   I smother Rex with motherly protectiveness and love but I can't help it nagging away in the back of my mind ... why?
Rebel and Rex came into my life on the darkest day ... the night of my mother's funeral ........ I held them as they came into this world and I held Rebel as he took his last breath .........
I sit by your grave Rebel and talk with you, I catch your whole family hangin' out and I know you are all visiting.
Thank YOU Rebel for the love and the laughs and the memories
You are never forgotten sweet boy .........
loves and kisses for always

Wishing your precious boy Rebel a very special 9th birthday.  Until we get to the other side we will never know why things happen as they do.  My guess is that once there we will realize that the whys don't matter to them as much as they did to us here.

Thinking of you on this marker and sending you thoughts of peace.

Dear Ms. Norma,

We had so much fun at the Bridge birthday party!  Mr. Rebel couldn't keep his paws on the ground, he was so busy flying around giving Rebel-back rides all day and night.  He just loves flying the little ones all over the place.  Did you hear us?  We were shouting "Wheeeee!  Wheeeee! Wheeee!" and giggling and rolling on the ground with delight.
