Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me, as if I were beside you.
I loved you so, twas heaven here with you.
This page has been created to honor the memory of Cowboy Cody.
Sadly, his life on this earth ended on March 7, 2002. I lovingly
called him my "Little Man" because he was so small at 3 lbs but
he had the heart of a courageous hero and would defend his
territory and home without hesitation or fear.
"Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all
of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is
plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and
comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored
to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole
and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days
and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they
miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly
stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the
eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group,
flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally
meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the
beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your
pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together......."
I would like to express my deep appreciation to Curious for making this set
for me...she knew I just couldn't and I also thank everyone so much for all
the sweet notes, precious cards, and kind support I have received. *HUGs*
