    Willem, thank you thank you. I'm so glad we have the smiling through tears emoticon.

    That was absolutely gorgeous. You make it all so much less scary.

    Ah Willem, you wonderful red horse! You boys at the bridge certainly do keep your hooves right on the pulses of our lives, don't you?

    Today of all days I find this thread. Today I was finally able fill part of the empty spot left in my heart when my beloved Vegas joined you at the Bridge in April. But then you and he would have known that already as he surely guided me toward this big red mare. He must think Classy is quite the foxy girl. He always did love red mares!

    Veg, you remind me on a very regular basis that you are still part of my life. You've sent herons to visit me at the most interesting times. And our song comes on the radio at just the right moments. I'm already laughing at Classy's antics, Veggers. You've instructed her well!

    My tears are finally no longer from grief, my angel, but tears of joy. I am thankful for the all too short time you shared my life, that you taught me well and I can feel you still.

    Thank you Willem for the reminder to keep smiling through our tears!

    Still in Hope


    I'm sitting here crying my eyes out,nose running, and no kleenex.. my pyjama top will just have to do..
    It has been a bad year here,last December my precious Lucy, and then beautiful gentle Emma, big fat Flaire mare, and the exquisite Pearl.
    When one goes, as they take their last breath, I feel a part of my soul goes with them....

    'the years they grow long , and the winters grow cold/ and horses, like men, can do naught but grow old..."

    can someone quote me again the beautiful poem about the racehorses, running in their pasture... I need to get that framed.
    thank you Willem and Coreene.. my poor old heart is still breaking.

    I cant read this whole thing cause I am at work, and I am already crying. Thank you! The one thing you said that choked me up. Was we will all be waiting here when you come! My husband years ago when I had to put my beloved mare down said dont worry Kim It will seem like an instant in time to hewr. someday when you go, she will raise her head up from the green pastures to see you and will run to you. it will be like you were never apart! I never knew the man had it in him!

    Guys, I'm closing this thread at the request of Willem, who only intended a brief visit, and who wants to remind you all that the Rainbow Bridge is a happy place, not sad at all.

    Bless you Willem for the love and hope you give us all.
