A Parting Prayer
Lord, please open your gates
call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved
across the Rainbow Bridge.
Assign her to a place of honor,
for she has been a faithful
and has always done her best
to please me.
Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing so in love
freeing her from pain and
Grant me the stength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details
of her life
with the love she has shown
And grant me the courage to
by sharing those memories
her remember me as well
and let her know that I will
always love her.
And when it's my time to pass
over into your paradise,
please allow her to accompany those
who will bring me home.
Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of her
and for the time we've had
thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now.
"So fly away and wait for me
at the Rainbow's end, at the Rainbow Bridge.
wait for me and I'll be there."
Your Mom and Papa
Judith and Raymond

What do you do when a good friend dies?
When all of the tears have all but been cried.
No matter how much, no matter how hard your try,
The only thing to do is say farewell,
GOODBYE- Until we meet again

THE POWER OF A PET - KO
lovely cat, Ko, passed away February 23rd, 2012. He would
been age 16 this year. Ko was the Hydro rescue cat,
who was rescued
by Hyrdo staff from a blizzard where his
paws were frozen in the snow. The
cat was rescued, feet
were fixed up, and it lived in the hyrdo warehouse.
Eventually the cat needed a home, and found its way to my
owner was undergoing severe bullying for the
last 7 years, and the power of
a pet, one cannot
describe. The presence of this little cat, named Ko, was
that it gave one something to come home to and comfort one,
in times of
great bullying. Many days one sat crying and
this cat would sit close,
and make one feel not so bad
about the bullying. My cat passed away Feb. 23rd,
and it waited for me before it passed away, thank you Ko
(Kosta Rico Sauve). At
peace at the Rainbow Bridge Dear
Ko. This cat taught me, that thru all the bullying, there
aways was, THE healing POWER OF A PET.
Thank you Ko.

I Only Wanted You
They say memories are golden, well
maybe that is true
I never wanted memories, I only wanted
A milion times I needed you, a million times I creid,
If love alone could have saved you, you never would
Thank you God, for giving us Coda.

1996 - 2005
My friend Buck, I recall
The times we had and theyre hanging on my wall
I wouldnt trade them for gold
Because they make me laugh and they make me cry
All the times, the running
and ball chasing,
The licks and the bear hugs and the people and the places
You were always there by my side
And I miss you beyond belief
And my old friend, I apologize
For not being around to say goodbye
You left us too soon, and this is my way
Of telling the tale that you were here and
That the love and the laughter will live long after
All the sadness and the tears
And well meet again,
my old friend.

We thought of you with love
If love could have saved you,
You never would have passed away.
Your family is sad and broken-hearted,
And nothing seems the same,
But your sweet memory will not depart,
because you've left paw prints on our hearts.
Love and miss you always,
Dad, Mom, and family

Murphy, you were my precious
pet for almost 16 years, how do I say good-bye to that kind
You gave so much and asked for so little in return. When
you died, part of me died with you.
The pain of losing you was so intense that I never knew
such pain in my life. Your last weeks were tremendously
difficult as I watched you cope with your cancer and I struggled
with the question of doing what was best for you. In the
end you saved your best gift to me till the end by taking
that decision out of my hands.
But even if I had known how intense the pain would be to
lose you, I would never have chosen to miss that pain because
to miss that pain, I would have had to miss the dance we
shared for almost 16 years.
Thank you Murphy for the best
dance of my life.
Till we meet again at Rainbow
Bridge my MurphyDoodle.
Max 1991 – 2006
You’ll always be my Main Man my dear Max.
You came into my life from a farmer’s field in Morris
and brought pure happiness and joy into my life.
We shared many great adventures together from Ontario through to B.C. Your love of life was infectious. You won everyone’s heart, and will be sadly, greatly missed by all.
I’ll love you forever, thank you for being my friend and guardian angel,
TASHA 1987 – 2007
My precious princess Tasha. You’re together again with your buddy Max, running and playing.
You looked after both Max and me, teaching us many lessons. You were the best friend and protector I could have.
You loved exploring and the outdoors. I shall miss your bossing me around, letting me know when it was time for walks, dinner, or just attention. You were gentle, loving, incredibly intelligent and independent.
I shall love you forever, and miss you immensely.

Rest in peace little buddy
IN LOVING MEMORY OF ZEB Our 9 ½ Year Old GENTLE GIANT
ZEB was more than just a pet. He was our best friend and a role model. We adopted ZEB from the Humane Society as a 3-month–old abused puppy – his coat was tattered and scruffy-looking and he had horrible scars on his mouth. He had suffered from malnutrition and had a bad odor about him.
In time, with Lots of Love and Care, ZEB grew into a beautiful and majestic-looking King Shepherd cross of about 105 lbs. Both people and pets we encountered on our daily walks loved ZEB. He was always Playful, Friendly, Gentle and he Loved LIFE.
As a role model, he was the Ambassador of Goodwill, welcoming all to his ‘Field’
ZEB taught us how to get along with others and their pets by his example. From watching ZEB, you would learn tolerance of others even if some didn’t seem caring.
ZEB was a quiet boy who rarely barked. ZEB was a gentle and passionate dog who will be painfully missed. When ZEB left us suddenly, he took a large chunk of our life with him …
We LOVE you ZEB and look forward to meeting you again in the next LIFE! Rest in Peace Your Dad and Mom Ken and Val Waldbauer
TRIBUTE TO OUR ZACK
1994 to 2007
ZACK was a best little friend to ZEB and to all of us in his family. ZACK was just under 10 lbs and ZEB was 105 lbs! He was frisky, mischievous and sweet.
Until May 2007 three buddies included ZACK, his older brother ZEKE, and ZEB. ZACK left us in May and ZEB left us in June.
Watching ZACK and ZEB play was magic – ZACK on his hind legs mock-slapping ZEB’s big face was a rib-splitter. ZEB chased ZACK, licked his little head till it was very wet, and all the while, ZEKE lay lazily by just watching through half-closed dreamy eyes. Then they would all lay down for a long nap till the next round.
We miss you ZACK but know you are in a good safe place with ZEB now looking after you once more!
Our Love Always, Val and Ken Waldbauer
TRIBUTE TO OUR ZEKE
1994 to 2008
Zeke was loving, beautiful both inside and out, and our first of the boys to come into our home. He enriched our lives - first to arrive and the last to leave - our hearts were empty but alive with memories! ZEKE was a best big buddy to ZACK and a best little friend to ZEB and to all of us in his family.
Until November 2008 the three buddies included ZEKE, his younger brother ZACK, and ZEB. ZACK left us in May ZEB left us in June.
Watching our boys play was magic - then they would all lay down for a long nap till the next round. We miss you ZEKE but know you are in a good safe place with ZEB and ZACK now looking out for you once more!
Our Love Always, Val and Ken Waldbauer

becomes a memory.

She is gone from our sight…but never our memory,
gone from our hearing…but never our hearts,
gone from our touch…but her presence is felt,
and the love that she gave us
I got Pinky when I was six years old and she was just a kitten. We grew up in the small town of Lowe Farm and later moved to Morris and Winnipeg. Pinky's last home was in Steinbach. She passed on March 16, 2009 at the age of 19. Pinky had kidney disease. Pinky was a very quiet, polite and independent cat. When she was young, she had a lot of kittens and she loved having kittens. It was her biggest joy in life.
She also liked to eat a lot. She didn't play much but when she did, it was that much more special. Her favorite toys were bouncy balls from those vending machines. Pinky always had her tounge out, like she forgot to but it back in her mouth after bathing. It was one of the reasons for her name.
Pinky was and still is everything to me. When other people would be out doing whatever it is people do, I would be hanging out with my child, my best friend and the love of my life and never wished it to be any other way. She made my life whole, content and happy. She showed me that the meaning to life is love, the unconditional love that we share. I have always and will always love her more than words could possibly begin to express.
You are my sunshine Pinky and I love you very much.
Pinky in my pocket
Pinky was sick
so I let her go home
now I keep her in my pocket
so I am not alone
I keep Pinky in my book
so she is there when I read
and when I am finished
she is the last thing that I see
I keep Pinky in my purse
because I always have it with me
I take her out to show the world
so her beauty they can too see
I keep Pinky on my nightstand
so I can tell her goodnight
and in the morning when I wake up
she is the first thing in my sight
I keep Pinky in my heart
because without her it would not beat
everything else life can take away
but Pinky in my heart I will keep

Our baby boy "Marty" was a beautiful loving cat. We were together for 14 wonderful years. Due to an illness we saw you suffering, so we decided to say our good-byes. It broke our hearts to leave you go, but you will always be remembered forever. Our dear baby boy you will never be replaced, and always be in our hearts.
With lots of Love
Mommy and Daddy
July, 1992- January 10, 2010
You were a member of our family for so very long – so full of life, energy and cuddles. We miss seeing you at the door, waiting to greet us and to make your escape into the fresh air. You were committed to staying with us, outliving two companions and even making your way safely home after being lost outside for two weeks. Even in the end, you were so strong to last for as long as you did. We are glad you are no longer suffering, but will love you and miss you always.
1996 - February 14, 2008
Rescued by Mommy Sandi you started off so tiny, but you grew into a little chubbster with a lot of love and a lot of nibbling. You were so cute with your “baby” and your short little legs kicked up in the air for a belly rub. You were cuddly – on your terms – and a great pal to Felix. Always easily spooked, you ventured outside only at night, to safely chase the bugs and never went far. It was difficult to lose you so suddenly, and we wanted to hold on longer, but we knew we had to spare you the pain. We miss you and love you!
