In memory of our beloved Miss Riley

♥ Miss Riley June ♥
2003 ~ 2009


Miss Riley passed away on Friday, September 18th, after battling a lifelong illness.
My heart is broken!


( Our special thanks to Dr. Bullard & Dr. Rataj and staff for their unending compassion. Not only did they provided Miss Riley with excellent care, but they also sent us lovely flowers and made a charitable donation in her memory. The following poem was also given to us by our Vet.)


The Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just the side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.

There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes to when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group!

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

So very, very sorry to hear about Miss Riley. I think I speak for everyone when I say that I felt like she was my own pet. I fell in love with her through the photos you'd share and the LO's you'd create. She'll be missed by many.

Ohh Debbie I am so sorry. I can understand how you feel & it is as if a hole has been ripped in your heart. How lucky we are to have had Miss Riley in our lives. Time will ease the emptiness, yet never quite fill it, and one day you will smile when you think of Miss Riley! Please know your friends are here.
