At the Rainbow Bridge

Hello, everyone. My name is Keisha. I am a little dog. Thank u from the bottom of my heart for reading this blog.

Today is a very sad day for my human friends, but a day of peace for me. I will be going to the Rainbow Bridge on Thursday morning, the 29th of August, 2013. I will be 16 years young.

I must thank all of you for your great kindness over the years. When I was born, back in 1997, I was adopted by a nice lady named Mrs. Williams. Then in 2004, she became ill and couldn't have me in her home anymore. So she let me find a new home with a family named the Rails. They adopted me after I'd been at the shelter only one day. :)

And that was it! I had a great time in their home. I played, ate, drank, went for countless walkies, and shared my stories with you. We all had a lot of fun. That was great!

Thank you for making my life fun and happy. Please keep the good memories. I will see all of you when our time comes.

Peace to all! :) Gotta go catch the bus with the angels.


Love, Keisha Williams Rail

Dear Keisha and family, We are so sad to read this. Keisha you have been the best friend to both Diamond and Sasha. We don't get to post to many blogs, as Lynettea is so busy, but we always like to read yours and you have been so much a friend to us.
Lynettea is crying.
Look out for Diamond at the Rainbow Bridge. Your humans are in our thoughts.

Sweet Keisha, thank you for always putting a sunbeam in our days.

Please continue to send us updates from the Bridge on what you're doing everyday.

We love you, Keisha

Dearest Keisha, words cannot express how heartbroken we are that your time to go to the Bridge has arrived. We take some comfort in knowing that you will be free from suffering, and happy and healthy once again. We know we will see you again, when our time comes, but until then we will miss you so very much. We love you always, and will never forget you, sweet friend.

We know how much you love kitties, and we love the thought of you playing and relaxing with our angels, Sammy, Maggie, Graphite, Lady Madonna and Bitsy. They will surely be excited to welcome you.

To Mr. and Mrs. Rail, and D.R.: We are so sorry. Thank you for adopting sweet Keisha, for loving her so much and so well, and for sharing her with all of us. You are in our thoughts, purrs and prayers. Much love to you all.

Marg said...

Oh Keisha, we were just getting to know you and really like your blog. We are so so sad that you are going to the bridge but we so think that your Mom and Dad are doing the right thing. You will be running around like a puppy again. We are so glad you had so much love while you were with your family. Big hugs to the Mom and Dad. This is such a hard thing to go through. Lots of thoughts coming your way.

ANGEL ABBY said...

Hi Keisha, we just saw over on Katie Isabella blog that you were travelling today to the Rainbow Bridge. We are sorry we did not get to know you before but we just wanted to stop by and let your Mom and Dad know how very sorry we are that you flew off to be with the Angels today. I made my trip on Aug 12 after a very brief illness and my Momma is still in deep sorrow. So she knows the hole that will be in your Mom's heart over the loss of you. We are so happy to know you had such a wonderful life as that will sustain your pawrents in their time of sadness.

You earned your beautiful wings today.

We send love and hugs on your loss.....No doubt Keisha is playing and watching from the Bridge but the emptiness and quiet back here can be overwhelming we know. It helps to know that over the Bridge there is no cancer or illness or sadness....but there is one more angel now than before.

No-one will miss her more than you, but our missing her will come close. Heck I will miss her so much. Will you pass on my love to DR and wish her well with her job hunting - and once again, I must say,

THANK YOU for sharing your girl on a wonderful blog.

K (Suka's Mom) said...

Dear Keisha's Family,

I just read of the passing of sweet Keisha on Khyra's blog and am so deeply sorry. Keisha was such a dear friend to my Suka and we always enjoyed stopping by her blog and reading her fun and interesting posts of how her day went. We loved learning of D.R. and the rest of her family. My heart breaks for your loss. Keisha was so incredibly sweet and kind and loving and she will be greatly missed.

Please accept my deepest heartfelt condolences for the loss of your beautiful girl. I know Suka was at the Rainbow Bridge happy to meet his blogging pal.

In Peace and Sympathy,

K

Francyne Dufault-Dick said...

Oh Keisha. Mine human bean Fran do be having lots and lots of waters coming from her eyes. She said she do be sad. I hope you do has all the walkies and treats that you could ever want where you are now.

Sam said...

Okay, we've been away so this is a deep, deep shock for us. We don't know where to begin. We have always counted on Keisha posting to my bloggie. I don't know what to say. But we're sure that the decision to help you to the bridge was long and agonizing for your humans. We're deeply sadden and shocked. I've already told my dad to close his mouth. We're sorry. I bet we could have been great friends had we met. Your buddy, Sam.

Smudgie said...

God bless, Keisha.
