It is with deepest sorrow, a heavy heart, and vision blurred by tears that I write this.

We were together from the day you were born in my bedroom, until the day you left this earth cuddled in my arms.  My life was much brighter and fuller with you as a faithful companion for over 17 years.

It has been one long lonely year since you left for the rainbow bridge. 

We miss you as much today as we did the day you left.  The house is not the same without you.  Our lives are not the same without you.  You were such a good kitty and your companionship brightened every day.  You had the greatest personality and loved to always be with us.  I miss you sleeping with me and using me as your personal pillow.  You were my travel buddy, you loved riding in the car.  You and I drove over 20,000 miles together.  I don’t think you realized the drive to the vet would be your last ride in the car, that you were not going to come home again. 

Even though you never showed any signs of pain, in the very last pictures we took of you sitting on the picnic table next to the pumpkin, I could tell that you did not feel well.  I wish it could have been different, but I know you were suffering as you had not eaten anything for almost a week by that time.  I did not want to see you go, but I could not allow you to have you suffer any longer.  Before you left, we asked you to send us signs to let us know you are at peace.  We know there were 4 instances that you sent us to let us know you are close by and watching over us.  We continue to look for signs that you send us.  Rest in Peace my good friend, until we meet again.

Dear Gizmo's daddy,

My  thoughts and prayers are with you on your beloved Gizmo's one year mark at the Bridge. Our lives are much brighter and fuller when we have these precious babies in our lives. I don't believe that anything can compare to the unconditional love of an animal in our lives. They give so much to us. I pray that you will continue to receive loving signs from Gizmo, I believe that's what gets us through each and every day without them until we are reunited in heaven.

Blessings and Hugs

Tricia, Burton&Ozzie's Mom

It's officially the 17th now, and I know it's a day you have dreaded for so long.  Your message to Gizmo is so beautiful and so very touching.  Thank you for sharing it with us here. I have always loved reading about Gizmo's life with you.  He was one lucky guy to have spent his entire life with you. 

Gizmo didn't realize that he wouldn't be coming home with you for a good reason ~ he did come home with you that day. In a different form, yes, but he is with you always.

I'm sending you virtual hugs and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers on this day of bittersweet memories of your special furry soul brother.

In one of them, I shall be laughing.
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at the sky at night.

I can't wait to hugga-bug again with you one day.
