Dear Thatcher- yesterday, 4/24/08 was your three year bridge anniversary, but you know that. I wasn't home to write you or send your balloons, but Mommy was as close to the heavens and you as I could possibly get. Airplanes are a wonderful thing. As I flew home, it was a bright sunny day with very few clouds in the sky- just the kind of day it was three years ago. As we rose above the occasional cloud, I thought to myself, what an incredibly beautiful view you now have on a daily basis. I felt so extremely close to you during that one hour flight baby, words can't do it justice. As much as I smiled during the flight, I also fought off the tears that wanted to fall. I'm still not to the point yet sweetheart where I can think, no less talk about you without tearing up. I miss you so much baby doll, even now, three years later. You are still the biggest part of me and it's so hard to let go of that. I don't think I ever will. Still, I go on. I go forth each day knowing that it gets me one day closer to you. For now, I hold tight to the memories we made, all the times you made me laugh, smile or even cry when you were sick. I know you'd want me to be strong and so I try. With everything I am, for you, I try. I am at peace knowing that you are no longer suffering and are safe in Gods hands. Now if there was just a way to sew up the hole in my heart. I'm still waiting for time to heal that wound. I don't know who ever came up with that saying, but I bet they never loved and lost a fur child. Anyway baby, I'll continue to talk to you each day, try to smile when I do, continue to do good in your name and always, always kiss you goodnight. You are my love, my life, my faithful companion, my best friend, my heart, my soul. Always were, always will be. Happy Bridge day #3 my angel. Hope you had your fill of all your favorites! I love you sweet baby. Then, now and forever........................Mommy

Dear Thatcher’s Mom – After reading the first few lines of your note, I could close my eyes and imagine what you were seeing. However, I couldn’t stop my tears from falling. Your words to your baby were full of so much love. You wrote,” “I know you’d want me to be strong and so I try. With everything I am, for you I try.” Oh that’s how I feel. My Rusty left me 10 weeks ago today and I feel as if my heart continues to break, yet, like you, I go on. Time can be cruel & kind all at once. But this expression, “time heals all wounds . . .” I agree with you when you said, “who ever came up with that saying, they never loved or lost a fur child.” He’s so sweet your Thatcher, and what love you two shared. Please know you and Thatcher are in my thoughts as you remember your sweet baby on his 3 rd year anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. Thatcher, continue to watch over your mommy. She loves & misses so much. Forever loving you our sweet angels . . . With warm affection, Rusty’s Mom.

Molly says Happy Bridge Day Thatcher!!
I know my Molly, owner of Molly's Fine Biscuts at the Bridge, made sure Thatcher had extra goodies.
Terri, it sure doesn't get any easier with time, does it? My prayers are with you today.

Thatcher is simply beautiful in that photo. She looks so content and calm, and her eyes are so full of love for you. Your words to her are so filled with love and longing that I have tears in my eyes right now. I know it just breaks your heart not to be able to hold her in your arms and stroke her soft fur. Oh, wouldn't we give anything for just more time with these precious little ones?? For dear Thatcher: HAPPY BELATED THREE YEAR BRIDGEDAY PRECIOUS LITTLE ONE!!! YOUR MOM LOVES AND MISSES YOU SO VERY MUCH!! Sending hugs to you, Melissa Betsy's forever mom

Dear Thatcher's Mom,
Wow, what a wonderful tribute to sweet Thatcher on his 3 year anniversary of his passing. We go on, but they definitely do take a piece of us with them. I understand your pain. It will be 4 years for me in June for my Sid, and to this day I still feel tear up if I start talking about him. I suppose it'll always be like that. We just miss these wonderful souls who give true love. Thinking of you and Thatcher. Love, Candice
