Dear Petloss Friends

It is so hard to believe that it has been six months since my beautiful kitty, Gus, went to the rainbow bridge.  I still miss him, but for the most part, the tears have been replaced with smiles as I remember all of the wonderful, funny times we shared. 

I planted a memorial garden over Gus' grave.  It is a special place complete with a fountain and memorial stone.  Gus' Garden is next to the screen porch that he loved so much.  It helps to have him close by and I can feel him near.  I know he loves his garden.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone who is suffering from a loss.  I pray that you  all find peace and comfort.
 

Gus Gus, you will always have a special place in my heart.  I love you so much.

Dear Kate, Gus's garden is so beautiful and serene. It reflects the incredible bond you have with your little boy. You can tell each planting was done with the utmost care and love. Gus's fountain must have the most soothing sound.  I know you must find peace when you visit his spot. It is 3 months since my beloved Mr. Meowgy left and I haven't been able to make a garden for him. I put fresh flowers on his grave each week but that is as far as I can go. I am so glad to hear you can now think of the happy times you and darling, beautiful Gus shared and that the tears have subsided a bit. Hearing this gives me a little hope. I know how terribly you miss him. Enjoy the gorgeous haven you created for your little boy. Thank you Kate, for all the kind, comforting words you have sent to me these last 3 months. You are a wonderful person. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

Dear Kate,

Gus' Garden is so beautiful.....just like your baby boy!  Love begets love, and it certainly shows in the lovely place you've made for him in his garden, and in your heart.

Gus' garden is so beautiful, almost as beautiful as your Gus.  I hope you find some comfort there being close to him.

Dear Kate,

Gus' garden is just beautiful and look so calm and serene.  I was so happy to read that you feel Gus near you.  I feel the same way about my Betsy.  Her continued spiritual presence in my life has helped me tremendously. 

I just love the photo of him on the swing!

DEAR GUS, HAPPY 6TH MONTH BRIDGEDAY, PRECIOUS!  COME AND VISIT YOUR MOM IN HER DREAMS!
 
Sending healing hugs and peace,

Gus's garden is beautiful. So peaceful and calming.
I am sure he loves it.
I am planning to do a memorial garden for my little Mickey as well.
I have picked out some plants and have outlined it out but have not dug it up yet. I am hoping to get to it this week. I am sure Mickey will love it.

I love the pic of gus on the porch swing. What a sweet boy he was.
It is nice to hear you say that you have sweet memories of him now.
It will be nice to have the emptiness I feel be filled with joyful memories.

Kate, I love the garden! Gus is such a handsome boy; I can see why you miss him so much. I let Tristan go on May 28 and my daughters and I planted a garden for him too.

Someday very soon, I will also post a picture of Tristan's garden. I hope that Gus' garden gives you peace.

Hugs,
Teresa
Tristan, I hope you're happy and running on the other side of the Bridge! I can almost see your tail wiggling because you're so happy, my boy!

Dear Kate--  Your memorial garden for Gus is just so beautiful.  I'm sure that he visits it every day in spirit.
     The 6 month Bridge day I found to be one of the hardest so far.  It's like a halfway point to that dreaded 1 year mark.  How comforting this site is to help us through these difficult days. At Christmas time, my husband & I bought a living tree and planted it in the spring for our little Teddy girl.  When I get the chance, I'll take some pictures of my Teddy tree.  We have an engraved stone similar to Gus' underneath it, and it does bring comfort to me when I look out the side and see it flourishing.   I know that Gus will always remain in your heart.  He was a darling and very handsome little man.

     HAPPY 6 MONTH BRIDGE DAY, GUS.  MAY YOU ALWAYS LIVE FOREVER IN THAT BEAUTIFUL GARDEN THAT YOUR MOMMY MADE FOR YOU.

     My thoughts & prayers are with you--- Teddy's Mom

It's a beautiful garden. I'm still trying to think of something to plant in Audie's honor. We live in Missouri and I would like something that comes back year after year. Any suggestions? Something appropriate for a bunny.
Thanks,

Thank you all so much for your wonderful words and kind thoughts.  Carol, thank you especially for the beautiful picture of Gus in his garden.   I'm sure his spirit has been present in that very spot.

For any of you who are planning a memorial, I think you will find that it is very therapeutic.  I spent many hours planning, planting and eventually sitting by Gus' Garden.  I really felt that I was doing something for him, but it was actually very helpful to me.  It gave me such a peaceful connection to Gus.  I planted  things that reminded me of him, bleeding hearts, forget-me-nots, and impatients.  They all seemed to fit his personality and my loss.

Love and peace to all of my petloss friends,
Kate (Gus' mom)

Dear Kate –

Your Gus’s garden is simply PERFECT and I’m sure that he’s spending hours lounging away, in the sun, just as Carol as portrayed him. It’s a beautiful tribute to him and the love you shared. I know how hard you’ve been struggling with his loss, and I’m glad to hear the process of creating this wonderful garden has been so therapeutic. I know how hard it is to find things that bring comfort and joy to our hearts, so when we do, it’s important to try and hold on to that feeling.

 

I’ve had plans to do a memorial garden for Rusty, but we’ve had new construction next to our house since last fall, and it doesn’t make sense to attempt to put something together when I know it will get so dirty and quite possibly ruined, so I’m waiting it out. I have Rusty in his sweet little box, with his picture, and flickering candle beside him, and for now that is enough for me.

 

Kate, wishing you peace and serenity in your sweet Gus's garden. Know that I'm thinking of you as you remember Gus on his 6th month at the Rainbow Bridge.

 

To our wonderful earth angels who now wear their special angel wings . . . until we meet again . . . we love and miss you so.

 

Much affection,

 

Rusty’s Mom – Allison.

Happy 6 month bridge day Gus!  Yesterday was also my Angel's 6 month bridge day.  They will always hold a special place in our hearts!

Dear Kate,

Your garden for Gus is just beautiful. I know that his spirit is alive and well there, in your heart, and in your life forevermore. I am so sorry for your loss, but I am glad that you have had Gus's love in your life - and he yours. What a miracle these little guys (and girls!) are, and how lucky we are to have them in our lives. As hard as some days are to just get through, I think if we can remember this, it just might help. I have a memorial garden for Molly, too, and it is so theraputic to sit and work in it. To watch the flowers bloom and grow throughout the year. To hear the windchimes gently singing and see the butterflies and hummingbirds visiting...

Big hugs to you. And, thank you so much for sharing the photo of Gus - a beauty - and his garden.

I love your garden.    I notice you planted a bleeding heart plant.   I made a memorial garden for my Merry and planted a bleeding heart plant too.   How appropriate.    Hope you find peace in that garden.

Many hugs...
