“Goodbye Sammy”


Description from Granny Nancy: We said goodbye today to Sammy, my lovely Siamese kitty, who has been sick for a long time. It was time to let him go.

The blue represent the tears I've shed knowing this day was coming. I often thought about the Rainbow bridge and you can read the Rainbow Bridge poem at:

I changed my photo to a picture of Sammy.

    Sammy was special. He actually loved my hubby the most so I often wonder if he left for those 3 months because he missed him and went looking for him. He was the stray who came to visit and one night decided he wanted out of the cold. I fed him, took care of him, and loved him the best I could. Sometimes we have a pet that is very unusual… Sammy was like that.

    Nancy, so sorry to hear of your loss. What a lovely tribute pick for dear Sammy. I believe in the Rainbow Bridge. Here is another legend that my be of some comfort…

    There is an Indian legend which says when a human dies there is a bridge they must cross to enter into heaven. At the head of that bridge waits every animal that human encountered during their lifetime. The animals, based upon what they know of this person, decide which humans may cross the bridge…. and which are turned away.
