The final goodbye


We believe for every beginning, there will always be an end .. That's how all tales go.. What goes up, must come down.. Same goes with life.. 

At the age of 13 years and 4 months, BabyRaisy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday morning, 23 May 2010 at 9.30 am. I thought it was going to be the toughest thing to do - to let your beloved one into a permanent slumber.. But life is always full of surprises. It's true when they say, " You will "know" when the time comes." And because it was "time", the moment was easier to bare as we watched her go painlessly and peacefully.  

I have to admit, it was more painful to watched her the last 3 weeks not eating and drinking, than to watch her go into her permanent slumber. 

As Buddhist, we believe that one is not dead, but has taken a different form of life.. So, as much as we miss watching a jolly furball rounding around the house and greeting us by the door when we get home, we know she is still spiritually with us, looking after us and guiding Moiselle onto the right path.. 

We can only say so much thanks to everyone for the all prayers and well wishes. Words can't express how grateful we are to have amazing friends and furriends to help us through this difficult time.. Again, thank you very much ! 

To those that are facing such difficult time, we just want to say, when the "time" comes, be courageous... let go ..

With lots of love
Moiselle and Family

Oh sweet Zelle,

Mom and me are so very sorry for your loss. I am sure our beloved Samantha greeted her with Woofs and Licks at the Rainbow Bridge. Mom has tears in her eyes as she is typing this,tears of sorrow for you and your family but also tears of joy for now BabyRaisy is free of pain. Run free sweet girl and chase squirrels again!
