This page is dedicated to a very special fur baby who came into our lives.  She was 2 months old, lost without a home.  We took her in and called her Midnight.  We should have known something was wrong, but not ever owning a rabbit before we did not know.  Midnight was in our lives for only a short time but touched us all so much.  At first I was afraid of her until, I seen just how gentle and loving she was.  I had never seen anything like it, she loved being held in your arms just like a baby.  After only having her for a week she became very ill.  We took her to the Vet and he basically gave us no chance that she would make it.  Determined to give this precious angel a chance we took the option to give her some medicine and take her home with us.  After only being home for not even ten minutes Midnight died in my fiance Kenny's arms.  It was all that we could do to hold ourselves together.  Watching her like that was something I've never experienced.  We buried her in our backyard and everyday I think about her.  It's amazing how you can have something in your life for such a short time and become so attached to them.  My mind is at peace knowing that she is in a better place and happy that we cared enough to take her in and love her so she didn't have to go alone.  We have gotten a new little bunny named Little Bit that looks a lot like Midnight, but one things for sure he doesn't and never will take the place of the precious baby that I first fell in love with.  Goodnight my love! 
"If tears would have kept you
You would still be here.
If tears would bring you back
You would have been home yesterday."

Request From Rainbow Bridge

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

   By Consta Jenkins
I ONLY WANTED YOU

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

The Rainbow Bridge...
We stood and watched him pass beyond the horizon.
And as we tried to say goodbye,
the tears streamed down our faces, and the bunnies at the Rainbow Bridge
cried in exhultation, "Look!!! Here he comes!!! "
Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.  When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.  There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.  There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.  All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.  The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing:  They each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.  His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver.  Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster.  You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

I have some really great news to tell about Midnight.  As you all know Midnight is buried in my back yard.  Well when we buried her there wasn't anything there but grass.  This past summer we seen some really beautiful flowers come up right above her.  I told the kids that it is her way of letting us know that she is still with us and that she's doing fine.  It's kind of strange how things like that happen, but I'm glad that it did.  We still go out and talk with her every chance that we get.  I just thought I would pass this along, it put a smile on my face and hopefully it did you too.
