Grateful for You All

Today is Thankful Thursday, and we wanted express our gratitude to our amazing friends and family for the remarkable outpouring of care and concern since our sweet Moosey made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge. 

Thank you, Ann (Zoolatry), for this lovely memorial badge.

All of us here are dealing with Moosey's loss in our own way, but bound together by love. Zoe clearly misses her brother, and we can see that she is not quite herself. It's a tough adjustment, but we know she (and all of us) will be okay in time, and that there will come a day when memories of Moosey bring more smiles than tears. Until then, we are so grateful for your love, compassion, purrs and prayers. Thanks and love to you all. 

Thank you, Julie (Father Tom Fishworthy, SJ & Family)

A note from Mom Tracey, Gracie and Zoe:

Even though we're all still sad that Moosey had to go to the Bridge, we're wishing Dad Kevin a beautiful birthday filled with things that make him happy. We know for a fact that Angel Moosey is wishing him the same exact thing. :)

Happy Birthday. We love you, Dad!

Gracie, Zoe and Mom Tracey

  7. You are right! There comes a time when the deep sadness of loss becomes less strong than the sweet memories of a life well lived. Moosey's memory lives on. Happy Birthday Kevin x

  13. I think about and pray for you all every day, Kevin, Tracey, Gracie, and Zoe. I know that right now it still feels like Moosey's passing has left a huge hole in your heart, but over time that hole will indeed fill up with your fond memories of him. And, as you said, in time you'll be able to smile at every thought of him.

    Happy birthday, Kevin. Your Moosey is looking down on you, today and always.

  41. PepiSmartDog: I am so sorry about Moosey arriving a the Rainbow Bridge. As a Rainbow Bridge Ambassador, Moosey had a wonderful Welcome Banquet where all his RB friends and family were gathered to welcome him! We will all take good care of Moosey and keep him busy with all our clubs and fun stuff to do. We can eat anything and do everything! No more pain or sickness and only happy memories. He knows you still love him and he loves you too. In time Moosey will whisper to your heart; he is always with you. The day you unexpectedly find yourself standing on the Rainbow Bridge, Moosey will be there to meet you! You will be a forever family again...not just yet.
    Sorry I'm late getting here but thank you for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop each week. Really enjoy your posts! *waves paw* :=o)
