"Jessie crossed over the dog rainbow bridge after being my BEST FRIEND for 18 years!" submitted by Tom Maher
A Lifetime of Memories to Cherish. R.I.P sweet Jessie.
The story tells of a green meadow at "this side of Heaven" (i.e., before someone enters into it). Rainbow Bridge is the name of both the meadow and an adjoining bridge connecting it to HEAVEN!
When a pet dies, it goes to the meadow, having been restored to perfect health and free of any injuries. The pet runs and plays all day with the others, there is always fresh food and water, and the sun is always shining. However, while the pets are at peace and happy, they still miss their owners who had to be left behind on Earth.
When their owner dies, they come across the Rainbow Bridge. It is at THAT MOMENT that their pet stops what they are doing and sniffs at the air and looks into the distance where they see their beloved owner. Excited, they run as fast as they can until they are in their owner's arms, licking their face in joy while their owner looks into the eyes of their pet who was absent on Earth, but never absent in their heart.
Then, side by side, they cross the Rainbow Bridge together into Heaven, never again to be separated!
This is Molly in the photos. A sweet and very brave girl who fought bone cancer for four months. Her family did EVERYTHING they could to help and comfort Molly. They spent a fortune to save her. Sadly, she crossed the dog rainbow bridge last June (2013), leaving her mom, Carrie, with a broken heart. But also with a mountain of wonderful memories of all the years they spent together!
R.I.P. Molly. Your story touched so many people. All their prayers came with you.
The last goodbye.
"Tuesday June 18th 2013, at 2:50, I lost my best friend and
companion Molly... She died naturally at our home with me holding her tight in
my arms. My soul feels so lost and empty without her here
with me. I can't stop crying, I miss her so much already! My heart is so
broken, this is so extremely hard I was with her 24/7. She was my shadow,
always right next to me... Molly was the Best Lap Dog EVER!!! She is and will always
be greatly missed. Always!!!"
From your mom, Carrie Donald
R.I.P. sweetheart. We'll never forget you. Things are so "quite" without your constant, "annoying", non stop barking. How we miss that now that you're no longer with us.
If your loyal friend has crossed the dog rainbow bridge, if you're feeling the same DEEP PAIN in your heart, then maybe it's time express those feelings. And also honor the memory of your dog. This is a place where people can honesty understand what you are going through...
Use this FORM and write anything YOU want to say, the way YOU want to say it.
I understand that for some people it's very hard to express their feelings in public. That's why you have the option to Post Anonymously.

Kathy wrote this for Luke, her loyal companion who also
crossed the dog rainbow bridge. Her words are so real and so intense. Brought tears to so many people's eyes...
"This is for my Luke.
Linda, up roaming the house early this morning and saw this post about Molly. Up early because I usually would have been up to take my Luke out for his middle of the night potty break, since at almost 14 his bladder wasn't what it used to be. Up early only to again realize he is not here with me anymore and starting another day missing him... My Luke died in my arms on Wed. June 12.
My loyal Luke also had been with me 24/7, following me every time I moved, by my side, comforting me, protecting me, making me laugh, making me calm and, as he aged and his health was failing, he still tried to do all of the things he could so easily do as a younger dog.
There were no miracle cures for him this time. My heart still aches for him every day, the tears still come way too easily. I keep thinking I'll find him in one of his favorite resting places and that he'll still be at the door, wagging his tail with his Kong in his mouth to greet me when I come home!
He was my faithful friend, my loyal companion and the source of such great happiness. I miss his beautiful face, his soulful eyes, the velvet softness of his ears which he loved to have rubbed. I miss his unconditional love, his calming manner, the comfort of knowing he was always by my side. I miss my Luke..."

If you're feeling the same pain, if your faithful friend has crossed the dog rainbow bridge and you still feel that you have many things in your heart you want to share and honor his or her memory, then write a memorial for your dog.
