HEARTBROKEN


My beloved Marley crossed the Rainbow Bridge today after a very bad night. He is no longer suffering or in pain. He could not walk today, and has shown no indication of being "Marley" since Monday. I saw this day coming but it doesn't mean I am ready for it. I said my good-byes over the last few weeks, and held him closely. I didn't think I had anymore tears left today but I was wrong. I am thankful for Gail and Edwin who met me at the vet's and went with me to "Paws to Heaven -A Pet's Final Journey." It is a government sponsored place. I could not have gone alone. They treated Marley with respect. All the way there I told funny Marley stories, to remember the fun times and try not to cry. My friend Debbie and the kids came over as well. 
I'll post some of my favorite photos and stories later. Just wanted to let you know. Thank you for your prayers and POTP. Marley is finally at perfect peace. 
Love,
Lady

  18. Dearest Marley,
    Right now I know you are free of pain are have become whole & healthy again at the Rainbow Bridge. I take great comfort in knowing that. I already miss you so very much and feel so lost. All of our hearts here are shattered and breaking into tiny little pieces. Our prayers are being sent to your Lady and we wish her comfort and peace. We sure wish we could be there to hold her, hug her and remind her just how much we love you both. My sweet Marley, I will NEVER forget you. You were my very first boyfriend and I'll always love you and will keep that special place in my heart for you. It will remain forever because LOVE never dies!

    I promise to keep in touch with your Lady. And, when she comes to Florida I hope that I finally get to meet her in the furs and I will smother her in kisses for you.

    Rest well with the angels Marley.

    I forever remain, your girl,

Please know that he is running free and will be with you again some day. I feel so bad you never received the towels I made for you as they had Marley's picture on them. They would be a comfort to you now. Ms. Saundra, Emmy and Cocoa
