Dear Meister:
Today will be our first candle ceremony for you.  I just can't get over the pain of losing you.  It was you and me buddy and without you my life is so empty.

I am waiting for the pictures so I can show everyone how beautiful you are.  Dad and I can still feel you next to us.  Dad misses sharing his oatmeal and cereal with you every day.  I always gave you 3 treats when you come in from outside or if I was going out.  Tonight we will be lighting 3 candles for you.  I will keep them lit for 17 minutes one for every year of your life. 

I will read the letter I wrote to you every Monday.  I would give anything to hold you again and kiss you.  Dad and I are making a memorial for you in the garden when you would walk.  Your stone has a big heart on it in memory of my name for you "my little sweetheart". 

I know you hear me talk to you every day as I look up into the sky I can see you.

I love and miss you so much.  I never knew the pain would be so bad.  Remember all the times we looked out the window together and I sat by your little bed and talked to you and cried just because I loved you so much.

We love you little buddy

Mom and Dad

I am sure that Meister can hear you as you talk to him. The love never dies and he will love you forever. I hope that garden will give you a place of solice to go and remember the wonderful life you had with Meister.

We always know that when we lose them the pain will be bad but I don't think we ever realize just how devastating it really will be. There are just so many things we miss about having them in our lives.

I hope you and your husband can find some peace for yourselves.

Dear Mary –

I read your sweet words to your baby boy Meister and my tears just well up so quickly . . . I can absolutely feel the love you and your husband have for him. Oh, and he’s just so precious – I can see why you’re so totally and unequivocally in love with him. I’m so sorry to hear about his having to leave you – it’s so very hard, and our hearts are forever broken when it is their time, because, sadly, all angels have to go back home . . . eventually. I lost my 21+ year old kitty Rusty 18 weeks and 2 days ago, and I went to the candle lighting ceremony for several weeks and found it very therapeutic. I now light a flickering candle every night next to Rusty, so he will always have a light to guide him home.


It’s so sweet that you’ll keep your candle lit for 17 minutes to represent all the wonder years you had together on this earth.


To our sweet, darling little earth angels that now wear their special Rainbow Bridge wings . . . until we meet again . . . we love and miss you so.


Warm hugs,


Rusty’s Mom – Allison.

I feel your pain, and can not help but cry myself.  My prayers are with you, and I can only hope that as time goes on it will get easier for us all.

Dearest Mary:
I understand every ounce of your pain.  These Precious Angels brought so much Joy and Happiness into our lives.  Continuing on without them just seems impossible.  I just wanted you to know that I am Praying for you and Meister.  I wish I had some answers that would help with your grief, but as of yet I have not found anything helpful.  The bottom line is they are gone and our Hearts are broken.  We will miss them Forever.

Big Hugs

Dear Mary,

I am so sorry that you must go through this horrible pain.  I hope that your memorial garden helps you feel closer to your beloved Meister.  I know that he is with you always because a love like the one you both have can never be gone.  It changes for a little while physically but the bond is always there.  The candle ceremony is very nice and so comforting that I know you will end the ceremony feel some comfort.

Meister - Mommy needs to know that you are still there so please show her a sign that she will know from the deepest part of her soul that it is you and that you are still around her and just waiting for the day that the wonderful reunion takes place.

My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Sorry about your loss. All of the things we do together with our pets--we never forget them. I hope things get easier for you. Take care.

Dear Mary, I can feel the pain in every word you write about your precious Meister, and the love too of course.   He was such a big part of your life, and the void must be so difficult.,  I know that feeling of emptiness very well.   We are very anxious to see photos of your little baby.  Keep on sharing his stories, they are precious to read.   He must be a popular fellow at the Rainbow Bridge, and I am sure he is getting his 3 treats a day there too!   May the lovely memories of him continue to bring you peace and comfort in the days ahead.  Hugs from Houston, MsSavion

Dear Mary,

I read your beautiful love filled letter to your sweetheart, Meister, and my tears came.  It is so hard to get through the days, to be surrounded by places and things that remind you of him, memories of life shared with him - I know how you feel.  When you wrote that you would talk to him and cry because you loved him so much, I used to do the same thing with my Boxer boy. We would have our quiet times together, too, and I felt our hearts were speaking to each other - my love for him would fill my heart so completely, especially when I looked into his eyes, and I would weep.

It's good to have a memorial place - it helps to see love for him expressed in a special way by his Mom and Dad, and no doubt it will be so beautiful.  His spirit will be there, wherever your love for him is.

Katharine, Grunt's Mom Forever

Dear Mary,

I am so so sorry for all your pain. I know how you feel, reading you words is like reading my own words. I am sure that many people feel the same way. Your Meister was your life, your baby, your soulmate, it is just horrendous losing them. I too know what it is like to love like that. Will we ever get over it??

Just know we are all here for you...your Meister is now at the Bridge with all his new friends and telling everyone about how much he loves you.

I am sending you a big cuddle,

Love Nuggetsmum Alana
