Raven was my baby for 16 1/2 years as I have no children. Raven finally had a Daddy to love her when I married almost 2 years ago. She thought the world of him, especially when she was hurting or feeling bad. Her Daddy would hold her and rock her to sleep. She was my world, my everything. She was always there to give me a kiss when I was feeling bad or something and she wanted to be with me all the time. She loved to spend time with me when I was cooking supper, nothing could keep her away. Raven was there for me when I battled cancer 6 years ago. She loved me unconditionally and would stay with me, especially if I was having a bad day from the chemo and was so sick that I couldn't hold my head up. She was a tough little lady! Through the years she had various ailments , but the past year she had battled cancer herself. She was so courageous, I wish I had the heart of a lion like my little girl. She will be greatly missed, but I know we will be together again someday. Until then little baby, Mommy & Daddy will keep you in their hearts and never forget how wonderful you are! 9/29/08 Hello, sweet baby, Mommy can't believe that you have been gone 3 weeks now. Oh, how Daddy and I miss you. I still can't bear to put your things away, I know you are having fun with all of your new furry friends, so just remember angel that Mommy & Daddy will be with you again someday. 11/12/08 Hey angel, it's Mommy again, still missing you so bad. Daddy & I had a really rough weekend, we both kept crying about you. I know that you are in a better place, without pain, but that doesn't make me miss you any less. We still have your bed in our room, I still find myself listening for you in the night. Hope you are enjoying Rainbows Bridge, wait patiently for Daddy & Mommy, we will come to you one day. Goodnight, sweety. 12/5/08 It's Mommy again, we missed you so badly over Thanksgiving, it was hard not giving you the turkey and mashed potatoes that you loved so much. We miss you so much baby! Christmas, will be even harder.12/16/08 Christmas is almost here baby. Mommy misses you under the tree sniffing the presents! It was so hard not buying you anything this year. I would give anything to have you back, it's still hard for Daddy & me. Talk to you later,angel. 1/8/09 Hey angel, Christmas was very hard without you. I wish you could still be with us, but that would be very selfish. I'm glad that your pain is over and you can have peace. We still cry about you because your memory is with us in everything that we do. Hope you have met lots of furry friends, be happy and we will come for you when we can. 2/09/09 Happy Valentines, sweetheart! You are definitely the love of my life,except for Daddy. We are still missing you so much, we spend everyday remembering the impact that you made on our lives. God sent me a special angel-YOU, and I am so grateful for having you as my furbaby.4/2/09 Happy belated birthday, baby. Mommy is sorry, she has been sick and not able to do anything. I've thought about you all week, oh how I wish we could have celebrated your 17th birthday. Daddy and I layed in bed and talked half the night about you and wishing you could still be here with us, someday we will be together. Have fun with all your buddies at the bridge. 8/4/09 Hello angel,it seems that time has flown since I last visited. You are in Mommy's heart and I hold you near me in everything that I do. I still can't bring myself to get another furbaby, maybe one of these days. The summer is going by so quickly, and I wish you were here, you so loved to lay out on the porch in the evenings with Daddy & I in our chairs. Brownie & Scruffy come over sometimes to visit, they miss you too. Well baby, Mommy will go for now. 9/7/09 Hi angel, it's so hard that you went to the bridge a year ago. Baby, it still hurts but I know that you are in a better place, without pain and suffering. You know Mommy & Daddy never wanted for you to be in pain and your last surgery was horrific for you, I know. We will be together again someday, until then continue to have fun with your new friends until we can be with you. 11/3/09 Angel, it's Mommy, hope you are having fun. I miss you so much, I am still lonely, and I can't bear to get another fur baby. I think about you all the time, when the wind gently blows it reminds me of you sneaking up on me and rubbing against my ankles. I smile when it happens, because I think it's you! Your friend,Brownie, will soon meet you at the bridge, he has prostate cancer and is not expected to last much longer, be waiting for him. He looked for you for quite awhile after you left us. I must go now, sweetie. 11/26/09 Happy Thanksgiving, angel! I thought about all the time I was making desserts for today, oh how you loved the Cool Whip! You do have a sweet tooth, you just loved your fruit. It was hard to realize that this was the second Thanksgiving without you. I visited Brownie & Scruffy today, Brownie seems to be holding his own. Just be there when he comes to the bridge, I know he will be looking for you. Goodnight, angel. 12/18/09 Winter is upon us baby, it's calling for a bad snowstorm tomorrow. I'm just glad that you won't have to go out and bear the cold with your little 3 inch legs! Merry Christmas furbaby, we still love and miss you so much. I wish I could buy you gifts like I used to. 2/11/10 Hi baby, Happy Valentine's Day! I have been thinking about you all day long. You are never far from my thoughts. I still have your bed in our room and I still can't bear to take it out. I don't know if we will ever be able to get another furbaby, after all this time it still breaks our hearts to even think about getting another. Sweetie, we have been having a horrible winter, Mommy is just glad that you don't have to go out in the freezing temperatures to go to the bathroom, the snow banks are taller than me! 3/29/10 Happy Birthday, Angel Baby! Wish you were here to celebrate your 18th, Spring is here and you would have loved to get outside and smell the flowers and SNEEZE.7/20/10 Hi Angel, I have been so busy that I haven't had time to visit you lately. I think about you always, you are never far from my mind. I have news for you, Mommy & Daddy finally got another puppy, she was at a shelter and needed to rescued, her name is Luna. I think you would like her, she is really little like you were and needed someone to love her. We will try to do the best for her as we did for you.|
We will always love you, remember, you will never be replaced. Love you always and forever. Goodnight sweet baby.8/26/10 Hi baby, Mommy was thinking about you alot today. I just got back from vacation, and I am exhausted. I can't believe that you left us almost 2 years ago. We had to take Luna to the same emergency vet that you used to see and it really brought bad some bad memories, especially the day that she took you from us. Luna didn't like her one bit and that is surprising because baby Luna loves everybody. I think she could feel the bad vibes coming from us toward the vet. Goodnight sweetie, Mommy is going to go get some rest. 2/18/11 Hi angel baby, I feel so bad for not being with you for quite awhile. Mommy,had another bout of cancer and has been recovering. I need another surgery and I'm hoping everything will be ok after that. I missed you at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day. You are still in my heart and soul and nothing will ever change that. I think you and Luna would be friends but you would put her in her place that's no doubt :), you were always my militant midget!! Well darling, Mommy needs to go now, goodnight sweet baby.3/29/11 HAPPY BIRTHDAY,angel baby! You would be 19 years old today, you were always a beautiful girl. I miss you so much. Mommy got good news today, I don't have bone cancer. It was like a gift from you on your birthday. Love you forever and always! 9/9/11 Hey angel baby, I can't believe it's been 3 years since you left us. I still miss you as much as I ever did. Luna, is a good baby like you, she is as different from you as night and day, actually, she is more like Honey. Raven, Sethy passed away in July, she was a good birdy and I know you were her friend, she was 23 years old. Also, Scruffy should be there at the bridge for you, he passed away in August. Until I see you again, remember I always think of you everyday and I love you!12/21/11 Hey sweet baby, it's Mommy, been missing you like crazy. You always brought joy to my life and especially at Christmas, my favorite photo of you was of your last Christmas with us, you were such a beautiful dog, you looked so healthy in that photo despite your past battle with bladder cancer. We will be together again someday,just wait at the bridge for us. Love you always and forever, sweet angel!2/14/12 Happy Valentine's Day, angel baby! Missing you as much today as ever. Wish you were here for me, you always gave me unconditonal love and I miss that. 3/29/12 Happy Birthday,angel! Mommy misses you so much, wish you were here to be friends with Luna. She is so lonely,since she is our only doggie.You would have been her friend and you could have hung out together. 8/17/12 Hey baby, still thinking of you everyday! You were and still are my favorite furbaby of all, you are constantly on my mind, alot of the time I call poor little Luna by your name. She justs looks at me as if to say, Mommy have you lost your mind - she is such a sweet little baby, she reminds me so much of Honey, I call her Boo alot of the time. We will be together again someday, until then sweetie, we will keep you in our hearts and thoughts. Good night,angel. 8/30/12 Hey baby, yesterday was hard for me, Pappy has been gone 17 years now. I thought of how you and Honey would take turns sitting on his lap, and sometimes you would wedge yourself on each side of him. I found a picture last night, of Honey sleeping on his lap and you sleeping on the floor between his legs...he was asleep also. I miss all of you so much, Geejoe, Toto, Cassidy, Tracy, Honey and of course, YOU! 11/26/12 Hello angel, you have been on my mind alot lately. As you probably know, you are never far from my thoughts. Your buddy, Brownie,entered Rainbow Bridge this weekend. Greet him, hook up with Scruffy, and go find your friend. Christmas, will be here soon.I always remember how you used to pick out your presents from under the tree, without any help. Love you always and forever, sweet pup. 5/30/13 Hey sweet angel, you are never far from my mind. Luna, is nothing like you....she is a sweetie, but not my Ray-Ray. I haven't forgotten you, Daddy and I talk about you all the time. Still, when I'm alone, I cry for you. I know you are never far away because I can feel your presence. I'm comforted knowing that you in a sense are still with me. Sorry, I missed your birthday this year, I've been very busy. So, Happy Birthday, sweet angel. You would have turned 21 this year. A sweet little old pup for your Mommy. Well, until next time, have fun at the bridge! 12/27/13 Merry Christmas, sweet Ray-Ray. It's been a while since I've visited, but you are always on my mind. I love you more than ever. I wish you could have known Luna, she is a sweetheart but she is nothing like you. You two girls are as different as day and night! You were an independent little lady but Luna is the opposite, she wants Mommy to be with her at all times and that is not possible. Mommy & Daddy split up in June, it was for the best. Mommy moved back in with your Grandma. I now have peace of mind as Daddy was not good to me, especially after you left me. Little Raven, after March, we will be the Warble girls again! I know you would have loved to like with Grandma again.... well, sweet angel, Mommy will get off of here for now. I promise it won't be as long next time that Mommy visits. It hardly seems that you left me for the bridge going on 6 years now, we will be together someday and you will meet your little sister, Luna. 7/31/14 Hi, angel baby. I miss you so much! I can't believe it will soon be 6 years since you left, I'm reminded of your sweet little face everyday, I still keep pictures of you with me and in my wallet. Mommy and Daddy are now officially divorced and I regained my maiden name. It's been a long tough year, we lost Bushon in February to cancer. I want to pick up the phone and call her, but I know that's impossible. Great-aunt Stella is coming up on her 91st birthday and she is suffering from Alzheimer's, it is so difficult for Mommy to watch and be with her. I keep remembering all the wonderful times I had with her growing up, she's my last aunt that's still alive. I'm sorry for not posting on here in so long, it's seem like there are not enough hours in the day for everything that needs to be done. Regardless of how busy I am, you are always with me and in my heart. I'll visit again soon. Love you always and forever. 3/27/15 Happy Birthday, sweet angel! I'm two days early but I wanted to do this while I had the time. I've been so busy but you are never far from my mind. I haven't been feeling well, I'm having trouble with my feet. I have neuropathy from the chemo treatments. Happy Easter, too. It will be here next weekend. I know how you loved your Reese Cups! How I wish you were here....I know how you loved the cats. We have three more now, Odie, Sweetie, and Smokey. Smokey's in love with Luna, she not as fond of kitties like you were. It's so funny, Smokey will walk right up to Luna and kiss her on her lips. Sometimes, she gets fed up and tries to bite him. I remember the love that Streak had for you..he liked to try and grab your little chunky butt. I still laugh thinking about it. Well angel, I must go and I hope to be able to visit more often. Loving you forever and always! 9/15/15 My sweet Ray Ray, I miss you so much! You have been on my mind a lot these days. I still find it hard to believe that you have been gone for 7 years. You will always be my favorite, I love Luna but she isn't you, you were that once in a lifetime special furbaby. I so sad, Smokey, has been missing for a month now. I don't know what happened to him, he just disappeared. He was such a sweet kitty. I pray everyday that he is ok, no matter where he is. We will be together again one day, sweet angel. Love you.
Raven's People Parent(s), Sheila & Clinton, would appreciate knowing you have visited their Raven's Memorial Residency.
