View Full Version : Hello Everyone....and thank you

Dear friends. How can I ever repay you all for your kind and caring words, the support, the messages of love and remembrance you posted for me and my girl??? It's difficult at times being a friend, finding the right words to comfort during times of sadness and loss and I thank you. Now I am feeling that loss too as I try to express my gratitude to all of you, my dear Pet Talk friends. It was the hardest thing for me to do, to finally sit down and read, really read, all of your beautiful messages. You will never know how much your understanding and compassion means to me and my family. Yet as I read your loving words, my heart breaks as I learn of the many passings that have occured during my absence and I apologize for not being here for YOU during your time of sadness:( To each and every one of you who have lost a beloved furkid over these many weeks, my love and sympathy goes out to you as I share your grief. I've missed you all so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring. Now my Cody lives on not only through my love for her, but through your love as well.

That's beautiful, Sandra.

You're very welcome Sandra, I know you've been through a lot. But I'm glad to have you back. Although things will never be the same, they could be just as well as they were before, but not complet, it won't ever be 'complete'. That was very beautiful Sandra!

Sandra, we know Cody and Jingles are having a good romp together at the Rainbow Bridge, and we are glad for any small part we have had in helping your poor, battered heart heal. We love you, and missed you while you were away from us, but are glad you are feeling better enough to be posting again. Big hugs to you! (And Miss Hoppy send tufts of tan fur - it's "big shed" time.)

Hello Sandra,

It is so great to hear from you. It made me smile just to see a thread with your name beside it. I have noticed that you have been posting to the Dog, Cat and Pet of the day again and that has warmed my heart. The furkids and I have missed you, dear friend. We hope you are in good spirits and will be visiting us more often.

Hugs and tailwags for you....Robin, Katie and Tori :)

You are more than welcome, friend. I'm glad to see you back. I know it must have been very hard to sit and read all our replies. I'm still here if you ever need to call me. I've got a little something for you that I'll be mailing soon. I'm going to wait until this nasty weather blows through. I hope that you can begin to heal a little and remember all those happy times with Cody. I can only imagine how difficult it is. We're all here for you.

Hey hey!

a great big *huggie* to you. and welcome back :D
weve all been missing you and worring about you a lot!

I am so glad your back with us, I missed
your caring posts.
Sending so many hugs to you,

to you and Star shine.

Miss Hoppy thought that with Cody now confining her shedding to the Rainbow Bridge, maybe you MISSED having tufts of fur random places around the yard and house. I was petting her outisde, and there was a West-to-East breeze blowing, so if you step outside and get a nose full of bunny fur, you'll know who sent it. She's afraid the thunderstorm that passed through not long after may have knocked it down, but I've told her it's okay, you don't really need it anyway, and I am sure Star still sheds aplenty.

07-09-2005, 06:43 PM
Are you kidding??? Shedded (is that a word???:D) fur is like oxygen to this soul! Miss Hoppy, may those easterly breezes blow with impunity!:) I'll be on the lookout! Hugs to you, Miss Hoppy!

Sandra, you have been so missed by everyone here at Pet Talk. We have already communicated through PM's but I must tell you how happy I am to see this new post of yours. It does my heart good to see you coming back and to be able to read your beautiful writings again, nothing could be better. I'm so glad to see you're gaining some new strength everyday. It will be a slow process. What you've endured has been so difficult but you continue to be a wonderful inspiration to us all. Your positive attitude can only be compared to a few people we are lucky enough to meet in our lives. Even though we have never met, I truly feel blessed to know you through this wonderful board. Thank you for being who you are and again, welcome back.


07-09-2005, 09:55 PM
Sandra, I've really, really missed you here on Pet Talk and I think about you often. I've also been praying for you, too.

Those were some beautiful words you put together Sandra, and I love you, [[[[[HUGS]]]]]:)

07-09-2005, 10:02 PM
Dear friend, seeing you post again feels like a missing piece of Pet Talk clicked back into place again, I can't even describe the warmth it brings to my heart and the smile to my face, as well as misty eyes, you know how us LES sufferers are :D. Now we get to see you not only post, but to post again with smiles. It's a wonderful sight indeed :). Warmest welcome back to you, Starshine, Mr. B, Oliver, Rosie, and Moonbeam from me, Tasha baby, Tommy the Lumberjack, Dawn birdie, Orion & Draco!

By the way, did you end up having fish tonight? :D

07-09-2005, 10:53 PM
Oh Sandra how nice it is to see you post.

Geesh, I wish there was something nice I could say to make you feel better but I just don't know what it would be.
Just know I'm here if you ever need an ear to bend or a shoulder to cry on.

Dear Sandra, welcome back!
So good to see one of your posts again :). We all missed you very much and continue to send our loving thoughts to you.
Many hugs and kisses from us.

Hello Sandra,

It makes me so happy to have you back with us again.:)

Liz, Smokey, Maggie and the kitties.:D

07-10-2005, 11:29 AM
We love you, you know?

I keep seeing Jingles and Cody running through a beautiful meadow with Squeekers clinging to Cody's neck, having a wonderful run! ;)

You know this board will never be the same without you, Sandra, but I'm glad you've taken time for yourself to do whatever you need to in order to restore your spirit. No, life will never be the same without the ones you've lost ... but it can be good again, little by little, day by day. Listen to your inner voice and find those things which give you comfort and peace. Those things that don't can be put aside. maybe temporarily, maybe permanently. All those who love you want the very best for you. Keep up the good fight and you will find what that is.

07-11-2005, 12:45 AM
I am so glad you are back. We knew you would be in your own time, and we were all here, waiting for you.

{{{hugs}}} as always.

07-20-2005, 06:57 AM
Well, this thread escaped me, but you can't imagine how glad I am to find it!!!! :) We have missed you. A lot!!!!

Hoping all is well and that we will be seeing more of you in the coming months.
