The Rainbow Bridge
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, 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 each 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. His bright eyes are intent.
His eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run 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....
Dear Rick, Thank you so very much for your concern and help with “Wee Wee” in my moment of grief. I feel that you are a very special and caring person. If there is anything I can ever do for you please don’t hesitate to let me know. Sincerely, Kristie Baker
Dear Rick, Thank you for your kindness and sharing our pain and sorrow for our beloved Sugar. Sincerely, Tom and Victoria Mantooth
Dear Rick, We just wanted to tell you once again how very much we appreciate your kindness and sympathy in our losing Precious August 9, 1997. She was the white Maltese that you buried in Space 14, Lot 20, Block H. After Precious died, I just had to put my love and grief into words. Words to share with the world to let them know just how precious she was. I didn’t want her little life to end without making this world – and not just me – changed forever. I’m only giving the st…
Dear Mr. White, I would like to thank you for being so helpful and understanding when I brought my dog Tinker Toy (a small black poodle) to you for cremation on 2/6. You are performing a much needed service. Keep up the good work and thanks again, Bob Melton
Dear Rick, We want to say “Thank You” again for taking such good care of our Penny dog. You were so kind to pick her up when we were in such pain and cremate her so quickly for us, so we could get on the road & get home. We were and are devastated by her loss. We scattered her ashes at the ocean in California las week at one of her favorite ‘fishin’ hole tidepools. We so much appreciate your kindness and help when we really needed it. With gratitude, Donna and Dick Graver
This past Friday we returned home from out of town only to discover our beloved golden retriever, Red Dog, had passed away a few hours earlier. He was a faithful, loyal and loving member of our family for 10 years and although we continue to grieve his passing we did gain some peace when we decided to have you cremate his remains. He will always be with us in spirit and now physicall as well and that means so very much to us. Thank you for all you do, Emily Stephens
Dear Rick, Our thanks twice over, once again! You took care of our little white and black cat “Diamond” who died November 9th and then our 18 year old tuxedo cat “Chance” who died at Club Hill on January 2nd. Their boxes are on a shelf with “Kate’s” (June 2000) and “Midnight” (January 1999). They are precious beloved family to my husband John and I. Thank you for your care over these often hilarious, always devoted, priceless treasures who were lent to us and who we will…
To: Rick Thank you for the nice work done of my black lab who we lost as of Sept 11, 2000. I was very pleased with the work, and the Box is very nice. Blackie was our family pet of 13 ½ years. A very loveable pet, and very close to me, even in his last days of life. Thank you once again for your time, and the very nice work that was done at Pet Rest. Thank you, Mona Burmpers & Family
Dear Ricky, You don’t know us, but you were recommended by Margi Ingram and Pet Doctor when our Nena dog passed away on May 10th. We want to thank you for caring for her. She was very special to us. We had her in our family for fourteen years. Your care and concern made it easier for us during this difficult time. Thank you, Best Wishes, Arlene & Kent Robinson
Dear Ricky; Thank you so much for taking care of my “Honeybee’. I really appreciate what you did for me. It made me feel better knowing that she will have her own little special place there at Pet Rest. Honeybee has been such a faithful companion. She always slept right next to my bed night after night. She was always waiting for me when I came home and was always happy to see me. She even knew when it was me coming home even after she had lost her hearing. Somehow she knew it was time fo…
