Dear Annabelle,
Today is one year since you left me for the bridge. I miss you so much Annabelle. You came to me at the age of 10 and stayed for only two years, but I felt like you had been with me for a lifetime. You have joined your Shih-Tzu sisters at the bridge. I am sure they were so happy to see you.
Three days after you left me I saw you in the night sky. I looked up and called your name, that moment a shooting star flew by. Thank you my love, it was you winking at me.
I know I will see you again someday. Oh, for that moment.
I love you more than life. Today will be hard for me, but I do rest in the knowing that we will be united again.
My love always,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your sweet Annabelle. I understand the sorrow you feel on her one year marker. What a wonderful two years of love you gave her in her final time here on earth. It will truly be heaven when you are reunited, I look forward to that day too with my Katie.  Thinking of you,

I love you forever Katie Kitty.
I can't wait to hugga-bug again with you one day.

Thinking of you today. I am so sorry. I can just picture Annabelle opening the gate at The Rainbow Bridge for Jasmine. They are now free from pain and suffering.

((ALETA)) sending you big hugs on this one year marker for your AnnaBelle.  I can just close my eyes and see her with your other girls and my beautiful Kaizer escorting them around the bridge to see all the other babies and to tip toe to the edges of the rainbows so they can watch over them mommy from heaven.  We were blessed to have know such sweet love. 
May you have a day filled with beautiful memories of the life you shared with your baby.

It seems the anniversary days are the hardest.  Other days, we can remember the way they made us laugh, the special things they used to do with us, their loyalty, and all the unique things about our babies and their imprint on our lives and in our hearts... 
Then, on the anniversary days, it's like time stands still, and takes us back to the last day we said goodbye , and it is those "last glimpses" that come to mind so strongly on the anniversary days.  
I know the "wink" she gave you, with the shooting star, will be a memory you will always treasure.  May your heart always remember the other special moments of Annabelle's love in your life, too, Aleta. 
God bless you especially at this time of year.

Ciao Bella!

Annabelle was so blessed to have had two such loving homes in her time on earth.  The fact that she spent her last two years with you tells me that your home was truly heaven on earth, a stop for her on her way to the Bridge.  Mama Aleta's was a place for her to get a taste of the kind of absolute healing she would experience in her next realm. You gave her a chance to feel some of that return to health here, before she made that final journey.  I remember how sick she was when she came to you, and the love and care she received from you was such an immense blessing.  I also remember when she sent you the shooting star.  What a good angel she is!

You have such a swell gang of darling angels watching over you, I know they will knock you down and smother you with kisses and frantic wiggling (the kind only a Shih is capable of doing) when your time comes to join them.  Haha. It's making me laugh just thinking about it. 

Yes, you've been a blessing to each of them,and to their sisters and brothers (cat brothers, that is) here on earth.  You've been a blessing to me, too, Bella.

Thank you Karen,

Oh that shooting star was so beautiful. My Annabelle was so special as were the other girls, but Annabelle was an old soul.
Love to you,

I know how much these one year markers mean and I'm thinking of you and your precious Annabelle.  She truly is an angel now as are all of your other babies.
