Maggie passed away this morning...but..we know...Liz will never walk alone...

This is an Oil Painting, Liz's Fiance', Nick, painted for John, and gave him 2 years ago, at Christmas... Of Liz and Maggie walking down the Wintry streets, near their home... I knew them both, the minute I saw this... It was a wonderful gift.... I have had folks call, confused with my posts this morning... and they didn't realize, until they read the 3rd post, that Liz's Best Friend, Maggie passed away, in the night, after her surgery, yesterday... I was posting, so fast, I didn't really think about it... so... hope this makes more sense... sorry....
Peg called, and said life is a wreck up here... it seems, ongoing 'wreck'...but...Liz and I still have our Faith...and we know... we don't ever walk alone....

"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 to them, who had to be 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 quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him 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 the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

This poem has always given me comfort. I hope it comforts you and your friend Liz as well. (((HUGS))) Luv~Betty

So sorry to hear about Maggie. Just being around both Liz & Maggie at your Spring show I could feel the love between the two of them. And she was so good with Lydia. You're all in my thoughts & prayers. Love ya. Amy
