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....

We thank you again, and will be in touch soon on our marker. Sincerely, Cindy & Rod Weaver
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…
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
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
