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.
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.
cross Rainbow Bridge together....

A Bridge Called Love
It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love.
