What's the most important lesson your mom taught you?


Not to turn my back on her, lest she put a knife in it.

Dearest Thomas:

Today is 5 months to the day you crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. It's also Mother's Day, and I imagine Father's Day will be rough too because that will be around the 6 month mark. I still talk to you everyday, and think that you hear me in the signs that you send. From those amazing sunsets, songs stuck in my head, to the inexplicable happenings in the apartent. Be a good boy up there Tom. You are loved, missed and will forever me in mine and Theresa's hearts.

It's been one month to the day exactly I lost my best friend (Tom) I am sad. He was my best friend. Who am I kidding? He was my only friend. And I was usually OK with that. I could tell him anything and when I looked into his soulful eyes, I could tell he understood me in his own way. He is who I would turn to when life was getting me down. Now, I have no one. RIP Tom. I miss you:

What's the first thing you do when you wake up?


Wish I could sleep in as it's the only time I'm not miserable :(

Need some advice...

As many of you know, I lost my baby and best friend Tom almost a month ago. Having no family or close friends to lean on for support, I started doing web searches on the Rainbow Bridge. This led me to petloss.com. A loss/grief support forum. For a while it was very nice posting to the message board, and getting some very kind responses. Then I made the mistake last night of going into the chat room. Not my strong suit at best. Especially late at night with a powerfully emotional subject matter. The mod's rule (zero tolerance/no 2nd chances) was not to judge people or make trouble. Well, of course he and others did just that. Already feeling sad and angry over my loss, I fought back. I get kicked out of the chat room. I figure, OK, no big deal, I'll just stick to the message board. I sent the mod/admin a message asking what I had done wrong, trying to fix the situation. I also posted about not having any luck in the chat room, and sticking to the message board. The message was never replied to nor was my post approved. Next thing I know, my user ID has been deleted. So much for caring and compassion for grieving pet parents. I guess it's grieve in the way I tell you or get out. My quandary: Do I try to contact him again to see if I can fix the situation or just move on and find another site keeping in mind that one appears to be the biggest and most established of it's kind? Do I really want to be part of a group that would do such a cruel thing in the wake of something they started? Thoughts?

This will be my first Christmas without my Tom in 5 years. I used to have a stocking for him, but don't know if I should look for it or not. I will miss his begging for some of the food I make for dinner. To be honest, that's as much the reason I bother to cook at all is to share with him. I didn't even bother to decorate this year either. I will cook again tonight even though Theresa has no interest in human food and I live alone. I suppose it's to honor his memory as much as anything else. I miss you Sir Thomas and this will be a rough holiday without you. Look down from heaven tonight to see the candles I light just for you. :'(

The service you truly deserved my friend Thomas

For my dearest Thomas. I feel that this is as close to a proper memorial as I can give you baby.

In Loving Memory of My Dearest Friend Sir Thomas
