With great sadness..

Cracker "Jack" of Diamonds. May 26th 1993 -June 20th 2008


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....

I completely understand how you're feeling right now. It's been two weeks since we lost Jazz and I still can't stop crying for her.

Wishing your peace during this difficult time.

Keri, I am SO SORRY for what you are going through and feeling right now, know that I am crying with you and sending you a hug.....Know that it's not time that heals wounds it's what you do in that time, and in time you will be able to laugh at all the fond memories you have of Jack and somehow smile about it....

Oh Kerri. I am so sorry for you and your family. I know Jack was more than a dog. He was a member of your family. I love that rainbow bridge poem. It is beautiful. Jack will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
