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....

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 Rick, I’m truly grateful for your taking care of QT’s remains for me. I picked the box up from Dr. Myers earlier today. As you problably figured, I was definitely NOT prepared for her sudden sickness and death. Thanks for your friendship. Very truly, Roy Dimon, DVM

Dear Rick, I just wanted to write and express my deepest appreciation to you for your tender, patient, understanding care of me and Honey Bear. You were so very respectful of Honey Bear and his resting place. I am so grateful you were there. Your words of wisdom have been such a comfort and your gentle reassurance has been encouraging.

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…
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
Ricky, Jake and I want to thank you for taking care of Brandy for us. It helped so much having someone to turn to. Thanks again! Carolyn and Jake
To a Very Special Man, What a hard job you have. I only wish you could have known Cletis. He was – well there are no words. Thank you so much for making it where I can still have a small piece of him with me. Tracy Custer
