Funeral for a Friend

We went to the Hiwassee River in North Carolina on July 16, 2008, to have a funeral for two really great Golden Retrievers, Megan and Ally. Megan was born on October 12, 1997 and crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 10, 2008. Her puppy Ally was born on June 16, 1999 and crossed the Rainbow Bridge ahead of her mother on April 6, 2008. We traveled to the river because it was their favorite place and we decided that it would be appropriate to sprinkle their ashes into the river. An Episcopalian Priest lead a small service followed by the sprinkling of their ashes, followed by Rose Petals, White Roses, Daylilies, and assorted wild flowers. The Roses were for their never ending love and purity and the wild flowers were for their wild hearts. They can forever romp and run in the place they loved the most. We say goodbye to two wonderful dogs. They will remain in our hearts forever and hopefully some day we can meet again when we also cross the Rainbow Bridge.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

My heart is with you, believe me! And I think part of my heart is floating down that river, too! I read some of the back posts, and I sit here so happy for you and Emma, smiling with the videos, yet, I'm sad with you, too! Pets! Our little four legged children! It's been 18 years since my lab, Breezy, died, and it might as well have been yesterday.
I, too, feel that burning sting sometimes in my eyes!!!!

I'm so glad you have Emma! I can see she will bring back the sparkle in your eyes!!!!
