My dearest Teddy--

         The wind that whispers through the trees,

                 the brightest star at night,

         A rainbow on a dismal day,

                 a shaft of golden light.

         All these are signs you send to me,

                 a message from above,

         That even death can never break

                 the powerful bonds of Love.

                                                           (Author unknown)

   How can it be 7 months already?  The pain is no less; I've only learned to live with it.  The grief has gotten older, but it still feels new.  I still kiss your pictures every day, and always say "I love you, Teddy" whenever I think about you (which is probably most of the time).  I look at your little Teddy tree which we planted with a beautiful engraved stone, and the tears fill my eyes because I'm so sad not to have you here. 
   My only consolation is knowing that some day I'll be with you again, and nothing will ever tear us apart.

    I see you in my mind and feel you in my heart.

                         Love forever,  Ma Ma

I can feel the pain you have for your Teddy, the loss and the longing. The Teddy tree sounds wonderful even though it means Teddy is not there anymore. I am so sorry for this loss. I cannot believe that it has been 7 months already, I know how hard that is to comprehend sometimes.

We are different people now that they are gone from us and life has a different meaning now, that is the way it is for me anyway. Finding some peace in your heart is a gift during this time and I am glad that you have a little peace.

I hope you continue to find a little more peace each and every day, we all have to have some hope.

As always,
Helen - bugsdogs

Dearest Helen:
Your poem and Tribute to Precious Teddy are beautiful.  This overwhelming pain just never goes away does it?  I miss Christopher as much today as I did the day he left.  I will miss him Forever.  The poem is so right; even death can never break the Powerful Bonds of Love.  Christopher and I are one and no one can ever take that away from us.  I know you and Teddy are one as well.  Life must go on, but it certainly is not the same life we had when they were with us.  I do not believe we will ever find peace in our lives until we are holding them in our arms again.  I will Always count the days.  May God's Angels keep Teddy safe for you until he is in your arms once again.  You and Teddy are in my Prayers. 

Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher

What a beautiful poem for sweet Teddy.  I don't think we ever truly get over the loss.  As you said, we learn to live with it.  It becomes a part of who we are. 

Your Teddy knows how much you love him and he will live on in your heart.

  Just want to thank you for sending me your thoughts and kind words.  I truly treasure this site for the wonderful people here.

  Helen-- You are so right in saying that we are different now.  I know that we've learned to "cope" with our loss, but living with it is so hard to do when all our memories come flooding back.  I want to be that happy-go-lucky person I was, but I just can't see that happening.  At least I will try to find that peace we all need.

  Kate--I know how you miss your darling Gus.  He reminds me of my little Max that I had many years ago.  I'm so partial to those pretty orange guys, and yours was such a cutie.  I'm sure he found my Purrsy at the Rainbow Bridge.  He was a very social little fellow(orange-red also).

  Georgeann-- I feel that we have that same bond with our little ones.  Your post in one of the threads touched my heart so much.  What you went through those last months with Christopher is so heart-breaking, and yet, I know that you would do it all over again.  At the time, all we can think about is how we can keep them comfortable while extending their stay with us here on earth.  I know you were the best Mommy to Christopher and he certainly knew that too.

      May we all find some kind of serenity and contentment together as we all are at this place for the same reasons.
     Thank you again.

                    Many hugs-- Teddy's Mom

Dear Helen,

I think we are different -yet the same. The pain in

our hearts will always be there we

just don't feel it ALL the time.

The brief sadness that passes over us when we look somewhere they should be -still comes.

We are different because we don't expect to find them anymore-we have come to know somewhere in our heads that they are gone-and that is really sad.


Does that make sense? I hope so because I understand it.


I was thinking that all our babies are at the bridge-and decided to post our pictures.


Love and hugs to you and Teddy and Purrsy.

Dear Helen,

I thought this looks like your Teddy.

Happy 7 months.

  Di-- Thanks so much for thinking of me.  It is well appreciated.

  Carol-- Believe it or not, I do know what you mean, and it does make a lot of sense to me.  It's like the pain lies dormant in us and all we need are certain triggers to set us off for those waves of sadness.  Every day, I look for her in certain spots; I picture her face in the window when I come home; and sometimes I find myself talking to her as if she were right there (which I'd like to believe).  I know that I won't see her, but I do feel her presence, and that gives me some sort of peace.
     Thank you so much for that lovely picture.  It does look like Teddy-- especially when she had her summer cut.  I'll have to start getting my pictures ready one of these days to put together for her memorial page.

     I've been behind the scenes these past few weeks.  I've been reading posts, etc. but unable to get myself to repond as I feel I would be no help to anyone while I'm feeling this sadness.  I'll snap out of it, I'm sure.

              Thank you all for being here for me--

What a little doll your Teddy is! I know just how much you're missing him.
I like what carewolf said about things being different but the same. Yes, we know they're gone, but the longing for their company remains.
I talk to Molly every day. It's not weird. I sing to her too. All the silly little songs.
We all will get through this very sad time. Life does go on. But it's just not as good as when they were here with us.
Molly and Teddy are cooking some special treats for themselves today at Molly's Shoppe.
