Dear Amethyst and Mayflower,
I can’t believe that it has been a decade since you two crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. So much has changed in my life over the course of that decade, but my love for the both of you has always remained constant. I still miss you two very much.
I still wish I knew what caused your deaths. I still wish that I saw the warning signs so that I could have done something to prevent your deaths. I know that by now both of you would have passed on even if I was able to save your lives back then, but if I could have extended your lives as much as biologically possible (while also keeping a good quality of life of course) then I would have. You two deserved nothing less.
When your deaths were playing like a broken record in my mind just days before Hershey passed away I had no idea why I was suddenly fixated on those horrid moments. At first, I thought that maybe it was just because of your 10th Rainbow Bridge Day Anniversaries. But now I realize that you two were letting me know that it was time for Hershey to join you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Interesting how things work out like that.
Mayflower, I specifically want to apologize to you for not writing you a 1st Rainbow Bridge Day Anniversary letter like I did for your sister. I was very busy at the time and because of that I just never got around to it. I hope that I can somewhat make it up to you by writing this letter on your 10th Rainbow Bridge Day Anniversary.
I hope that you two are enjoying yourselves on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Both of you will forever live on in my heart. You two were and will always remain very special gerbils.
Love, now and always,
