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 Mr. White, Orien is and shall remain a beloved pet and very special great friend. Thank you for offering up his remains with dignity and a positive mind and heart. It’s very important to me that every aspect of his passing reflects all of the enormous love he poured out to me while he was with me. With gratitude— God Bless You, Carol Okstel
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
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…
Dear Mr. White, Thank you for very thoughtful and professional consideration in the prompt handling of the cremation and memorial marker for our deceased pet, “Amber”. Your kind assistance and attention is appreciated. Kindest regards, Herndon Howard
Rick, Thank you for allowing me to bring Rusty and Hunter out to you and for taking care of them immediately. I really felt so much better when we had them home. You guys are the best. David Cinclair
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
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…
We truly thank you for taking care of our clinic dog like you did. It really means a lot to us. We all wanted the best for him and you made that possible. LBJ Animal Clinic Staff
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, Thank you for your kindness during the loss of my beloved schnauzer, Scott. I appreciate your timeliness in my time of sorrow and loss. Thank you for sharing about your schnauzer too. Sincerely, Angie Baty
