What a lovely surprise that must have been.  I'm sure Pal showed Taz where to sit.

Hi Juanita:
I am sure that Pal guided Taz towards that window.

To My Best Friend Pal:
You used to love to sleep. You would just lie in your bed and I would watch you. Taz has never been one for sleeping. He is always awake. Yesterday afternoon, as I was walking by his bed he was sound asleep. Again, just like him in the window the day before, I actually thought that it was you in that bed. Just like you, Taz looked so much at peace. I really feel your presence and your love.

                                                                    I Love You,
                                                                    Joe

Hi Joe,

I believe this two incidents, the window one and the sleeping one are signs from your precious Pal.  It's called oversouling, where your transitioned pet tells your current pet to do something that only your transitioned pet did.  Pal is speaking to you through your little Taz.  What wonderful signs from you beloved

To My Beloved Pal:
My kidney is now functioning at 11 percent. Anything below 15 is considered end-stage so that means that my kidney can shut down at any time. Strangely, I was hoping that the function would be even lower. I have seen and done everything that I have wanted to do. If it gets below five percent, it will definitely shut down. I am ready to cross over and see you again at the Rainbow Bridge.

                                                                                      I Love You,
                                                                                      Joe

Dear Joe,

Thank you for the last five years...your writing, your company and thoughts.  Our best friends traveled to the Rainbow Bridge about the same time and I'm so glad I had you all these years.
When the day comes when you are with Pal I will hope that when I am with Max and Mr. Gordy, I will be lucky enough to meet you and Pal.

God Bless you on your Journey and a big hug and kiss to Pal.

Until we meet my friend.

Katherine

Hi Katherine:
They say that every black cloud has a silver lining. The black cloud of losing Pal had a silver lining of me having the privilege to be in contact with so many wonderful people like you here at the Rainbow Bridge. I never could have survived the last five years without your friendship and support. I have really been blessed. Thank you.

Joe

To My Dearest Pal:
This has been the rainiest spring that we have ever had. The bad thing about that is that the grass is growing so fast. I have to mow the lawn three times a week. You did not high grass. You were built so low to the ground and if the grass was high it would touch your belly. Taz is a little taller than you so it does not bother him as much.

                                                                         I Love You,
                                                                         Joe

To My Beloved Pal:
This morning I took Taz outside to pee. Every morning he always just walks onto the grass and goes. This morning he would not go on the grass because it was too wet. Also last night I had a bag of Hershey kisses that was unopened sitting on a low table. Unlike you, Taz has never taken any food. Last night he was very quiet and then I saw him come into the kitchen. He had opened the bag and had eaten a Hershey kiss. Unlike you, though, he was nor able to get the wrapper off of the candy. In the last few days there are so many signs through Taz that you are still here with me.

                                                                       I Love You,
                                                                       Joe

To My Dearest Pal:
I went to look at a picture of you. After a few seconds, I started to cry uncontrollably. It has been almost five years and I still get very sad when I think of you. The picture was of you standing outside in the back yard on a sunny day. You were five years old at the time. That is the picture that I am going to carry with me when I cross over to the other side. Please be there waiting for me and please forgive me for not taking better care of you.


                                                                                            I Love You,
                                                                                            Joe

To My Best Friend Pal:
It is very strange to have outlived the time frame my doctor gave me. When I first got the news I put all of my affairs in order and I made my final arrangements. I did things that I wanted to do and saw acquaintances. Now I just wait for the end to come but there is no way to know for certain. A kidney cannot function at less than six percent without dialysis. My kidney is functioning at 11 percent and I have made it clear that I will not undergo dialysis so I guess that I have sort of a time frame. Still, I just wish that it would end as soon as possible. I want to be together with you again.

                                                                     I Love You,
                                                                     Joe

To My Beloved Pal:
Back In the days when you and I were together, I never thought either one of us would ever get old. I was wrong about that. I would also pray that when the time came that I would pass on before you. I could not imagine living a life without you being in it. I wish that I had passed away before you. I have not really been living since you have been gone. Each day is just one day closer until you and I are together again. There is not really any more enjoyment left in my life or true happiness. The happiest that I have been was when I received my diagnosis of my terminal condition. Even that is taking too long to come to pass. I just want to be with you again. Please be there waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge.

                                                                               I Love You,
                                                                               Joe

Dear Joe,

I am sorry for your loss. I read through may of your posts made over the past 5 years and can easily see how much you loved, adored & cherished "Pal." I felt I had to put down my beloved "Marmalade" about 4 weeks ago. And before reading your posts, all I could think of to myself, after Marmalade's passing, again & again, was "His death, will now make my death, that much easier. It will be a relief." So I can totally relate to your feelings.

Marmalade used to sit on my lap as if he was a little girl getting her hair brushed, Lol, even though he was a total Alpha-Male Tom Cat. He had been a "King" of a colony of feral cats back in New Mexico when I adopted him. The females adored him and he was allowed to escort the kittens to feedings at our back door. And the males respected him, even though he had chronic health problems (like I do.) With me he was always kind, gentle, respectful, sweet, silly, loyal and loving. When he was on my lap being brushed, he would sit with a perfect posture and would turn back to me on occasion, with this look of total gratitude & contentment. He had had such a tough life before we met. He and I worked hard together over the years, to try and put weight on him and address his myriad of health problems.

I used to tell Marmalade as he sat on my lap: "Right now THIS is OUR time. One of us may go, both of us may go, but RIGHT NOW, THIS is OUR time together. And we are grateful...and we are blessed." So our mortality was on my mind. He went first. What is comforting to me is I was the one left behind, not him. As I could have never trusted anyone else to take care of him.

God bless & keep you Joe. I hope you take care of yourself and are gentle with yourself. And that someday you do get to see your beloved Pal again.

Memories of Marmalade::
I am so sorry about the loss of your beloved Marmalade. I know how much you love him and I know how you are grieving. The way that you describe him I can see him sitting on your lap. You are so right. The time that we spend with our pets is "OUR TIME". That time is so precious and special.

Joe
