Memories of Michael Patrick

Michael Patrick spent 18 loving and loved years with his mom, Jayne, at Furry Friends Haven, from the time he was diagnosed with epilepsy and FIV as a kitten, and was the oldest member of the kitty household, but it was complications from kidney failure that finally took his sweet body. He will be sorely missed by her and by the other kitties there. I (Clare) was privileged to sponsor him along with several others at the Haven. He crossed Rainbows Bridge gently, softly and peacefully late yesterday afternoon, 1/27/09. He will be treasured by his mom forever and remembered by us, his Aunties Clare and Martha. We will all be together again one day in God's time, and it will be truly grand! Until then, Michael Patrick, along with others from FFH who are across the Bridge are watching over their mom, Jayne, with so much love. What a truly beautiful, glorious place it must be!

From Michael Patrick to his mom, this message by an anonymous poet seems so fitting:

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful - lush and green and wide;
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be.
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright,
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright glow pierced the night.
'Twas the glow of many candles, shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no one can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

8/12/09 - Sweet Michael Patrick, we ask that you take Jake under your paw. He just crossed Rainbows Bridge today and is probably wondering what has happened. It is so beautiful there, and we entrust him into your care.
