Maybe this has been posted, I don't know. But my heart has been broken into pieces since Saturday. Today I received this letter in the mail with a rose attached. Not sure how it got there but I felt I needed to share. What a tearful yet wonderful letter to read.

 
To my dearest family, I'd like to say,
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from the bridge, where I dwell with God above.
There's no more tears of sadness here, just eternal love.

That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me, and He said, "I welcome you."

"It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone,
And as for your dearest family, they'll be here later on."

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you - in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there will be no flowers, unless there is some rain.

I wish that I could tell you, all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are rocky roads ahead of you, and many hills to climb.
But together we can do it, by taking one day at a time.

When your walking down the street with me on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go, from that body to be free,
Remember you're not going alone.
You're coming here with me.

I love you, Julie, xxxxx, xxxxx, and xxxxx,
Natto

LG,

Thank you, losing your family pet is really devastating and so much harder than we imagine. I am very glad to hear that this helped even if only for that moment. I want everyone on here to feel as though this came from their own mailbox. Because yes it will be a wonderful joyful day when we meet them on that beautiful bridge.

I have also been listening to the song "See you again" by Carrie Underwood since yesterday. My daughter told me it reminded her of our Natto. In my car I played it loud, singing it loud as I could. It also made me feel comfort. They are loving us, watching over us, and waiting for us!!


Hugs to you!!!!
Julie

This was beautiful. I have been looking for something of a remembrance for my hamster Paisley, that I just lost on the 4th of November and I seen this on a website yesterday. Then I could not remember where I seen it. Thanks for sharing it. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. That was SO powerful.
Rest peacefully my sweet
Paisley. I love you so much baby. Thank you SO much for your love. I miss you SO much sweetie.
