Our Sweet Mandy!! The runt of the litter proved that small in stature can still have a huge heart. She loved her belly rubs, her "Monk-Monk" slipper, her walks, chasing tennis balls, Frosty Paws occasionally and peanut butter bones. But most of all she loved her "Sissy"- the two were inseperable from day one.
We miss her terribly but know she will be waiting to greet us on the other side of the "Rainbow Bridge"!
Until then, Mandy we will smile every time we think of you- our sweet little girl.
We love and miss you!
Mom, Dad, Sissy (Kari), DJ, Tim and Lexi
Mandy also had the privilege of playing with Tyler, Callie, Prince and Podo! Skippy, Tyler and Podie met Mandy as she crossed the other side of the bridge.
05/29/06 Happy Memorial Day Mandy!! I put a little flag on your grave site, I hope you like it.
We still miss you so much and our hearts ache for you- but we know you are happy and are not in pain. Sometimes I find small things around the house that remind me of you and I cry. But then it makes me happy to remember you and your cute little ways! No one will ever "be pretty" like you!!!
I have to go today baby, but will be thinking of you always.I love you. Mommy
10/04/08......My Baby Manda! Thinking of you Sweetheart on this anniversary of your crossing the rainbow bridge. We know you are safe and happy, but we miss you so very, very much. Just remember we will see you one day soon when we join you on the other side! Can't wait 'til that day comes
Skippy, Tyler, and Podie will be there too!
Love you forever and ever my baby girl.
06/06 It's Mommy Mandy! Thinking of you baby. I'm going to remove the flag for now and place
some red roses for you. My roses on the side of the house have bloomed and are so pretty again, you'd love them! I hope you're having fun and playing with all of your friends, until we see you agian. We love you honey. Mommy
06/27/06.......Hi Manda! I've been thinking about you a lot, we've had some bad storms lately.....you don't have to be afraid of any more storms do you sweetie?
I wanted to tell you about our new little sister (Bella the kitty), you would love her! She's very cute but very naughty sometimes! She stays in the house all the time, but wants to be outside. I had an idea, and got out your big cage you loved to sleep in ~ I put that outside for her and she oves to go in it once in a while.
Lexi came over to the cage and sniffed and sniffed- daddy and I both think she was smelling you and it was sad, she misses you too.
I love you sweetheart!!! Have fun playing with everyone!
06/28/06.....Oh Mandy girl! Your photo is now on your headstone and it is beautiful!! That little bit of dirt on your nose is soo cute, you loved to play in those leaves!!
Loving and missing you,
09/30/06 Hello Baby!! Sissy was here yesterday and we were thinking about you. Almost a year since you crossed the bridge. We miss and love you every, every day!!!
I thought I'd leave some red apples for you for fall. Not that you ate them, but remember how we would watch the deer come to the apple tree? That was fun!
Hugs and kisses Baby Girl........rest well.
10/06/06 Hi Mandy girl! It's been a year now since you've been gone. Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other days it seems like forever ago. Thinking of you especially now, missing you, loving you. We'll be together again soon baby! We'll play and play, then sit and just cozy up, how does that sound?
Until then our little Manda girl........
12/22/06 Hello Manda girl and Merry Christmas Honey!! I can't stay on here too long today, because I'm feeling very sad, missing you.
I'm going to give you some Christmas things to play with. I pray you're having fun, no worries, no pain. I love you forever. Mommy
(02/03/07) Hello my little Mandy Girl!!
Thinking of you and missing you very much. It's so very cold here today, you'd be sleeping all curled up. I couldn't blame you!
Lexi and I were walking in the snow the other day and I thought about how much you loved the snow. You were so cute and funny in it, then you'd eat it, being silly....we'd always laugh. I know it's perfect weather where you are, no problems there. I'm glad you're happy, you deserve to be happy forever my little sweetie. I will think of you and love you forever.

08/26/07.....Manda!!! Thinking about you Honey and wishing you were here, I really miss you! I hope you're having fun in Heaven Baby ~ if anyone accidentally bumps your bell (we still have it on the door!)- we think of you. You were the sweetest darling in the world, and God needed you in Heaven. I can't wait to see you again and hold you. You gave us sooo many fun and loving times, but I feel so, so sad today. I try to just remember the good times. I love you so much Baby. :(
10/04/07....Amanda!!!!! I'm having mixed feelings about you today Honey. Soooooo sad and missing you, but we were all together last night for DJ's birthday ~ and Kari and I were talking about how cute and funny you were!! We miss you so very much, but you put a smile in our hearts that will be there forever. The love you gave us was so pure and innocent. You will never be out of our minds or hearts!!
Love you so much,
Mommy, Daddy and Sissy

I can't believe it's been two years Honey ~ my goodness we miss you so much. We know we will see you again one day, Baby!
Grandma Thompson and Pap Brewer will give you lots of lovin' if you'd like. Remember when Pap was here, you wouldn't leave his side?? He loved that! I put the picture of you and Lexi with Santa up the other day, you look so cute.

10/05/09 Sweet, sweet Manda Girl ~ I love you baby! Your Sissy was here yesterday, but I didn't mention that it was your anniversary b/c she wouldn't have been able to handle it. She still misses you so much, as we all do. Sissy found a cat who had baby kitties, they are so cute Manda! They're very funny too, you would love them. They make Sissy happy for now and help with the pain of losing you.
