Mia (1994 - October 30, 2007)




We lost Mia tonight to the Rainbow Bridge. She ran off on her own this evening. She has been a part of our lives for the last 12+ years and I can't believe how much it hurts & how much I miss her already. I hope she is off playing with all her friends who have gone before her. I'd love to write something wonderful in tribute to her but I just can't right now. We will be offline for a while trying to carry on but will try to get by our friends. We love you all...

A Bridge Called Love

It takes us back to brighter years,
To happier sunlit days
And to precious moments
That will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
Are treasured in the heart
To bring us always close to those
From whom we had to part.

There is a bridge of memories
From earth to Heaven above…
It keeps our dear ones near to us

It’s the bridge that we call love.

I know what you are going through - I wish there would be a way to help - but there isn't.
It is me, Anastasia, I got killed August 21 and my staff and Karl are still sooooo sad.
Today, on the Day of the Dead I actually go around the whole cat blogosphere and dare everybody (not you guys, you are grieving)and I know my staff is heartbroken but also happy because they feel a part of me will always be there.
Mia and I are fine at the bridge, we don't have pain or worry or sorrow anymore and we are grateful for the love you gave us while we were with you!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Dearest Ghost! I am purrraying for you still my friend. I hope you do not think me too ungracious of a kitty for taking such a long time to return your visit. You can only imagine how happy I was to see you come cheer me on while I was so very sick. Mommy was heartbroken and thought for sure I would not regain any of my spirit and was prepared for the worst. But I was worth a small miracle. With your purrrayers and some good medicine, I have regained my strength day by day. Mommy would not have made it through her worries about me without your comfort. Each night we keep you in our prayers and wish you endless Blessings this Thanksgiving season.

Love and hugs from our house to yours, Miss Peach and the mommy
