Default R.I.P. Emma

This morning, June 1st, at age 11 years and one month, our Emma crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge.
Yesterday she was feeling so much better that she and Griffin went for a nice walk with James, and last night we took them both to our favourite pub/coffeehouse to sit on the front porch and do what Emma loved best: greet the customers. We were approached by a young woman who writes a blog on facebook about the People of Pictou County, and she took our picture and wrote a little story about us. What a beautiful memory of Emma's last night with us, she was so happy...

Donna, I know the pain of losing a cherished fur baby, and my thoughts and prayers are with you and James now as you learn to be a family without her. What a wonderful last memory you have of the day you spent with her yesterday. Cherish those memories. (((HUGS)))

Donna, I'm absolutely destroyed to hear of Emma's passing. I so know what you're going through as I have long felt due to your wonderful descriptions as if I knew Emma as my own.

I reach out if only in words to hug you and James during your time of grief. I know it provides you some comfort that you feel that Emma is now in that world where there is no pain, plenty of joy and sunshine and where she will spend eternity.

May God Bless and comfort you both.

I was sorry to sign on and see that your dear Emma had passed. She seemed to be beauty, and has to be very tough for you and James to lose her.

I agree that the picture should be framed and kept as a wonderful memory of Emma. You gave her a truly great day!

So sorry to read of Emma's passing. You and James have our sympathies. Hopefully you two and Griffin can move on to happy times again.

I have sent Emma to my sister, Pat, in Heaven. Pat will introduce her to Harry and Lefty, our Boxers growing up, and they will all be happy together.

Emma will be whole, healthy and safe with Pat.

And Gusto is already at her side, playing and waiting for the day we will all be together again. In the meantime, I know they and all of our beloved CM pets are having a blast.

It is us who are left with the heartache and grief. Hugs to you and James and Griffin and Lucy.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I know I haven't been around for a long time (just lurking) because of a change in jobs, but I thought I'd check in one time. I remember you writing fondly throughout the years about Emma. Hang in there!
