Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears
but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you...
I loved you so - 'twas Heaven here with you.
by Isla Paschal Richardson

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

Ratbone Rescues' big Fall Fund-Raiser is Underway EARLY this Year! We will be Promoting the Memorial Quilt from May 16 through September 15, 2010. The Proceeds from this Fund-Raiser will be used to help pay for Vaccinations, Spay/Neuters, and other General Veterinary Needs.

Because Ratbone Rescues relies heavily on Donations from our Friends and Supporters to meet the Medical Needs of the Rat Terriers we take in, we wanted to Give Back in some way to the Generous People who Make Our Work Possible, in order to show our Appreciation.

In order for us to make a Fair and Random Selection, for each Donation Made in the Listed Amounts you will be Assigned one or more Numbers. A Number will be Selected at Random on September 16, 2010, at which time the Recipient of the Memorial Quilt will be Announced.

The Quilt will be shipped by Certified, Insured Mail
7 to 10 days after the Announcement.

Warm light coming from far below,
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow.
All is well up on the ridge,
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge.

Furbabies sleeping in heaven's light,
Tended by candles in the night.
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep,
As they slumber in this night so deep.

Hearts on earth that miss them so,
Take comfort in the candle's glow.
Watching for them in skies above,
Bound eternally by a cord of love.
