|My Dearest Rocky, I loved you from the moment I first laid eyes on you and my love grew deeper as the years went by. You were my baby and I'll love you for as long as I live. I'll never forget the feel of your cold wet nose nuzzled under my chin, the feel of your soft hair or those wonderful kisses you showered me with every day. I miss you so much and only wish you could have stayed here with me until my last day on earth. I'm certain though that we will be together again. I know that your suffering is over, your eyesight restored,and I can envision you running and playing at the Rainbow Bridge with your dog mother, Missy. Please know that you will be forever in my heart and I'm certain that one day we'll be together again. Please have fun until we meet again. Love, Mommy 8/12/2001... It's now been 4 weeks since I last saw your beautiful face, held you in my arms, and stroked your soft grey hair. I can't describe how my heart aches every second of the day for you. I remember as a young dog how lively and spirited you were - you barked at every noise you heard and were constantly begging for food. Oh how I loved your begging and could never resist giving you a little treat when you would sit up and wiggle those little paws up and down. As you aged, you were gentle, loving and such an important part of my life. Your presence here is missed and always will be. Rest in peace my sweet angel... until we meet again. I love you. Mommy 7/15/02 Dear Rocky, Today marks the one year anniversary of your passing. One year ago today I made the most difficult decision of my life - to let you go. Not one day has passed that I haven't thought of you and cried. After all this time, you're still with me... in my heart, in my soul, forever a part of me. I'll always love you. You'll always be my special angel. Loving you forever. Mommy 12/31/04 Dear Rocky, It's almost a new year... I still miss you more than I can express in written words. You know that I have a new furbaby. He is not a replacement for you but a testament of my love for you. He is nothing like you... you were vocal, he is quiet. One thing you have in common is your unconditional love. There are a lot of things I don't understand about this life. I don't understand why God takes away those we love so much. I know there must be some reason for this and I know I will find out why some day. Until that day, I will always keep you close in my heart and in my memories. 6/19/06 Dear Rocky, I'm sorry it's been so long since I've written. Now my beloved Tsuki is with you. She crossed over on 12/05/06. Please keep her close until I join you. I love you both so much and right now I'm feeling so much pain with both of my old babies gone. I'll be loving you both always. 7/15/06 Dear Rocky, Today marks the 5 year anniversary of your crossing. I miss you, Missy & Tsuki so much. I have to believe that God's plan is for us all to be together again and when we are reunited it will be for eternity... never to be separated again. Everyone says the pain will be replaced with happy memories. Unfortunately, for me, the memories are still painful. One saying that is true, "love never dies". And another "All that we love deeply becomes a part of us". You, Missy and Tsuki are all a part of me. My heart, my mind, my soul belongs to you. You will be forever & always a part of me. -Mommy 7/15/07 My baby Rocky, I can't believe it's been six years since you left my life. You're still in my heart where you'll always be until we meet again. I hope you're having fun with our sweet Tsuki & Missy. I miss them as well and one day we'll all be together again. Until then, I'll be loving you ALWAYS!7/15/08 My sweet baby Rocky, another year has passed since you left ahead of me for the Rainbows Bridge. So much has happened in the seven years since you left. Tsuki, Billy & Cassie have joined you and Missy - Billy just last month. My heart is heavy from the losses and the only thing that keeps me going is the belief that one day we will all be together again. I love you all and miss you every day. You remain in my heart and will always. I will burn a candle tonight in memory of my very sweet and loving baby boy. Love you forever and always. Mommy 12/23/08 Merry Christmas my sweetie boy and to my precious Tsuki too. Love you and miss you both... always! Mommy 7/15/09 My dear, sweet boy, it's been 8 long years since you made your journey to the bridge. I still miss you every single day. I hope you, Missy, Tsuki, Billy and Cassie are happy and I hope you all remember how much I love you and always will. You all took a piece of my heart with you when you went to the bridge. Please hold it close until the day we meet again. Loving you always. Mommy 7/15/10 Dear Rocky, Mommy has to make this short because I'm typing with one hand - I broke my right arm yesterday. I just want to say how much I love and miss you. I can't believe it's been 9 years. You're always in my heart and in my thoughts. Play hard at RB until we meet again. Love and kisses to you every second of every day my sweet old boy. Kisses to Tsuki, Billy, Missy and Cassie too. I'll be loving ALL of you... always. Love, Mommy 7/15/2011 - It's been 10 long years since I held my baby boy in my arms. You remain in my heart always. Mr. Duffy has joined you at the bridge. Since he reminded me so much of you, I feel as if I've lost you all over again. I love you my precious boy and always will. Missing you always. Love, Mommy 12/20/11 Merry Christmas my pecious boy! Kisses to you Tuski, Billy, Cassie Missy & Duffy. I miss all my babies so much. Loving you forever and always! Mommy 12/31/11 Happy New Year to all my furkids at the bridge. I'm missing you all. You're always with me in my heart. Love you! 7/15/12 Dear Rocky, I can't believe it has been 11 years since I last held my precious boy in my arms. Your ashes still sit next to "our" bed on the nightstand. I know it's not really you in that wooden box but all that's left of your earthly remains. I'll take them with me when I begin my journey to the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you baby boy. You remain in my heart every second of every day. I'll be loving you always. 7/14/13 My dear sweet baby boy, I can't believe it's been 12 years. I still miss you every minute of every day. While some new loves have joined our family, you will always hold a very special place in my heart. Remember when I said you are the smartest dog I've every known? Well that's still true. I will love you forever and will miss you until the day we meet again. You still exist because I still remember and still hold you in my heart. 12/5/14 Dear Rocky, Since I last wrote I've lost my baby, Reggie. He's the little Scottie I adopted after you went to the bridge. He helped heal my heart and I loved him so much. His personality was so different from yours. He was quiet and shy but oh so sweet. I'm still having trouble believing he's gone. His illness came out of the blue and he was gone so quickly. I was lucky to have him in my life for 13 1/2 years but still what I would give for one more day with you and with him. I hope you greeted him at the bridge. I miss him and once again my heart is broken. Tell him how much his Mommy loves and misses him. Still missing you, Tsuki, Missy, Cassie, Billie, Duffy, Waggles and my beloved Reggie. Kisses and hugs, Mommy|
