Remembering My Little Angel

No words to express the intense pain and sorrow that we feel after the loss of our beloved little angel Niki. My heart is torn to pieces.  Life will never be the same without you my sweet boy.
















We will always miss you and love you until our last breath.  You were so strong and brave my little angel. And while you were in deep pain and suffering, you never showed it.  You are the bravest person I have ever known.  You gave us joy, comfort and true love until the very end.  You truly made our lives so much better my little angel.  We are so thankful to God for bringing you into our lives and for letting us enjoy nine wonderful years with you.  I will miss looking at your beautiful happy face everyday.  I will miss seeing you seating on your favorite chair in the garden but most of all I will miss our Saturday mornings on the sofa that you loved so much.  Thank you my sweet boy. Mama will never forget those beautiful bright eyes and your sweet smile.      

Life will be different without you my little angel but I know it was your time to go.  Rest in peace my little one.  I only find comfort in knowing that you are now free of all your pain and suffering.  I know God has welcomed you with open arms where you have now found peace and comfort in his arms.  You have made the skies a lot brighter with your happy soul.....Until we meet again my sweet boy.

We love you to pieces,

Mommy and Daddy

  2. Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

  18. I just discovered your site today. I am sorry about your little Niki. He looks so sweet with his bright little eyes and smile. Our time with our pets just goes by too fast. My little Fuzzy pom heard me sniffling while I was reading your post and came over to see what is wrong with me. I'm giving him extra hugs. I'm your newest follower.

    Take care.

  20. A lovely tribute to your beloved. I just lost my 19 Year old cat. I feel like I will never recover, like the light has gone away from my life. Every day without her is a terrible struggle I feel as if when she took her last breath, I can no longer breath. . She was closer to me then any human and was by my side loving, supporting and comforting me for 19 years. So I understand how you feel. To me my pets mean more to me then any family, any friend. They are forever our closest companions., The love remains but the pain grows worse day by day. We miss them forever with every breath.

    1. Hello Lexie,

      You are so right, it is a terrible loss. I have never shed so many tears. The pain is like no other I have ever felt before. We are still in disbelieve. It has been such an emotional roller-coaster. My little pooch was such a tremendous part of our life that we will never truly recover. He is missed terribly. I know the days ahead will be easier for for now, our hearts are still in terrible pain. Our only comfort is knowing that he is no longer is pain or suffering.

      I am sorry for the loss of your beloved cat too. May you find comfort as well.

      Blessings,

      Janet

  22. Dear Janet:
    What a beautiful memorial homage for Niki. I don't know where you got the strength to write, as his passing was just a few days ago. We will miss Niki's visits to the shore, his posing for pics, his bubbly presence, but most of all, the peace and joy he always transmitted no matter where you and Schan took him. May God help you and my brother overcome the pain and sadness you are living at this moment with your loss.
    Un abrazo. See you soon.
    Lilly

  25. These are moments filled with such a deep sadness, when our 'Companions of Life' leave us, we make the experience of the most absolute empty, of the darkest dark, I do know this feeling so very well, and believe me, my dear Janet, I'm beside you in this hard moment ... just think that your Angel wouldn't see you sad, that he has made as much as possible to fill your days with joy, and I'm sure, he want you to remember him going on with your life with the same joy he has taught you ... It's quite easy to say, far too hard to do, you need patience and time ... I'm so very sorry for this lost of yours

    I'm so very sensitive to this kind of sadness, and I feel so deeply sorry when such persons like you have to live it ...

    Take care, my sweet friend
    With much love
    Dany

      Blessings my sweet friend.
