My Beautiful Nina Maria,
Six months ago today at Noon, I sent you to the Bridge. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make, but you were suffering and I could not let it continue. I love you too much for that. I know you are in a better hands now. That song reminds me of you when I hear it. I tried so hard not to cry today, but it was useless, I couldn't help myself. I will always miss you very much and will love you forever. You are forever in my heart. This is for you: I wish we had just one more day, So we could spend time together and play. I miss you so much I really can’t describe, How bad I hurt deep down inside. I miss your bark, your stubborn way, I wish we had just one more day. I think back on the life we had, You always made my heart so glad. You were so strong, tried and true, At the end, I knew what I had to do. I looked in your eyes, what could I say, I wish we had just one more day. Now I know you have been set free, No more pain, no wheelchair we’ll see. Running, playing, smell the flowers so sweet. Till once again we ever more shall meet. Then never again I’ll have to say, I wish we had just one more day. Love Mommy, May 8, 2008 For those who may not have seen her pictures, this is my Nina: My favorite picture Nina on Wheels Under her favorite tree At the Bridge

My heart goes out to you today. I'm so sorry for your loss of Nina Marie, but I know that you celebrate that she was in your life and the joy she brought to you. I don't know how we get through these days without them, but I do know that somehow, I imagine with their help, we do. It's been 15 months since I lost Molly. I still cry all the time, and I miss her with all of my heart, but I feel her with me every moment, too. I am a better person for having known her and loved her. I'm sure it's that way with you, too.
Big hugs to you today and every day.

Nina Maria is adorable! It looks like she loved to have her picture taken! These anniversaries are so hard. It is 9 weeks today that I lost my beloved Mr. Meowgy and it is no easier. Your poem is beautiful and a lovely tribute to your darling Nina Maria
Happy 6 month BridgeDay Nina Maria! Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

I'm thinking of you and your precious and beautiful Nina Maria - she is such a pretty girl, thank you for sharing her pictures (her sweet face makes me smile), and the lovely poignant poem you wrote for her. The passing of time without our Beloved Ones just doesn't take the sadness away for any of us. I'm seeing this in every thread I read. Your love for your Nina Maria and the life you shared is crystal clear in your posts. I am so very sorry you lost your precious girl. Hugs, and sending a special prayer for Nina Maria on her 6 Month Bridge Day, Katharine, Grunt's Mom Forever

What a beautiful girl. Hershey will help Nina Maria celebrate her special day in style. May you find peace in knowing that Nina Maria is running free without pain at the brige. She has good friends to play with and gentle days to enjoy.

Oh, Vicky, I was thinking of you yesterday, but I logged off early and didn't see your post. I know exactly how you feel--last week was 6 months for Teddy- and the tears wouldn't stop. I was away and didn't have this wonderful place to come and air my emotions.
Your little poem reflects the deep love that you have for your NinaMaria and is a great tribute to a beautiful girl. She will always remain in your heart, as will my Teddy. They are children to us and the bond will ever be strong. Know that I am thinking of you at this time with many prayers that we can heal from this sorrow that envelopes us so. HAPPY 6-MONTH BRIDGE DAY, DEAR NINAMARIA! Please let Teddy in on your festivities. She loved parties and celebrations. I know you both are healthy and having a good time until your Mommies can some day join you. Love & hugs----Teddy's Mom

Dear Nina Maria’s Mom – Oh your baby is so sweet. She has just the most precious face, like she’s saying, “I’m so happy and so lucky.” I understand how you feel when you wrote it was the hardest decision you ever had to make when sending your baby to the bridge. I feel the same way about my sweet kitty Rusty. I set him free 11 weeks and 6 days ago and my heart feels as broken today as it did then. Your poem is so very beautiful and I know that your Nina has heard your words of love. It’s true, we will love our sweet angels forever, in fact I believe that I love Rusty more as each day passes. Please know you’re in my thoughts as you observe your Nina Maria’s 6 month anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. To our beloved sweet earth angels that now wear their Rainbow Bridge wings . . . until we meet again . . . we love and miss you so. Warm hugs, Rusty’s Mom.

Dear Mommy, I want to tell you how proud I am of you. So many up here at the Rainbow Bridge have told me how you help their parents with your beautiful messages. I especially love the ones that you write about me. We will always have such a special bond. You took such wonderful care of me. You will be so excited when you see me running towards you when it is our time to be together again.

Thanks to everyone for their replies. Especially Carewolf thank you so much. Your post meant so much to me, it was like getting a Mother's Day card from Nina. She always got me one and I have been very sad about it. Even though I cried when I saw your post, it made me feel so much better. Thanks again. (I'm still trying to go through her pictures and work on her web page, it's more difficult than I thought)
Thanks again everyone, Vicky

You Tribute to Nina Maria is beautiful and you poem to her is amazing. I could have written every word you wrote to Nina to Christopher. As I looked at Nina in her cart it reminded me of Christopher. In the end Christopher lost use of his legs. Fortunately he was not as big as Nina so I carried him everywhere including outside to go to the bathroom. Even though he was so weak his personality was still alive and well. Unfortunately that horrible day came for me too where I had no choice but to let him go. We will miss our Precious Angels For Eternity. They stole our Hearts and left with our souls. I am so sorry that I missed Nina's Bridge day. I have no idea where the time goes. Tomorrow will be such a sad day for all of us. WE will Forever count the days until we are with them again. You and Nina are in my Prayers Always. HAPPY SIX MONTH BRIDGE DAY PRECIOUS NINA MARIA. I HOPE YOU HAD A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND I HOPE THAT CHRISTOPHER HELPED YOU TO CELEBRATE. STAY SAFE AND WAIT FOR YOUR MOMMY. PLEASE TAKE GOOD CARE OF CHRISTOPHER FOR ME UNTIL I GET THERE. MAY GOD KEEP YOU SAFE FOREVER. Big Hugs Georgeann and Christopher Forever
