Thank you all my very special friends... Merry Christmas xxxx

My very special friends. This year I was so dreading putting cards and decorations up as I knew I would miss my Jasper's cards so very much. That is until the postman kept each day dropping through the door cards from dear blog friends. I cant tell you how much that means to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means such a lot...

                                            Jasper's door....
                                      At the weekend Barrie and I went to a housewarming and just looked who lived there. Maverick is a Snoodle ( half miniature Schnauzer and half miniature poodle ) just four months old and adorable.
                              Now I want to tell you of two things that made me so sure that my boy was close by me this week.  must have vacuumed the carpet lots of times since we lost him and the furniture has been pulled out too. This week I put my hand down by my chair to pick up a pen and look....
A huge piece of my boys fur...
         Then I was putting on my scarf and down floated a white feather.

   I like to think he knew I was feeling low and let me know he was there ...

                                 Merry Christmas from Barrie and I xxxx
                             Last years greeting from my boy. So this year from my angel...
                   To you all. You are wonderful and I send love to everyone.

                                                                  Carol xxx

Dearest Carol and Barrie,
WE are SO sure that G.J's. strong spirit is RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. He has sent you Notice of that with his Fur and the Feather and the Wonderful MEMORIES that you have. We pray that you let them wash over you with the LOVE that they were delivered with.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We know he's with you, and always will be. Lots of hugs and kitty kisses from us.

Carol, it was sweet of you to send a card, but not necessary, as we don't normally exchange. I just wanted to send one to you both, especially now. I know the holidays will be bittersweet, but the love of the CB is with you.

Peace.

Jasper sent you a sign! He is near. He knew you needed him and he came ! We are so happy! Our mum could feel he was near yesterday,
along with our Ollie. Jasper's love is transcendent. Bless him.
Happy Christmas, dear friends.

We understand how you feel. Mom is missing Auntie El a lot and lots of things trigger her to tears. We're also missing Clifford. We're sure there are lots of beautiful Christmas cards and trees and lights at the Bridge.

It's wonderful how you found GJ's fur and found a feather from him. We felt in our hearts he would give you a sign from Rainbow Bridge this Christmas so you know he watches over you both.
