'Till Then'

by Kelsey

I was young and it was the first time I had ever experienced death. Our cat Striper died, he was hit by a car. I was overcome with grief and tried to understand he was truly gone. We buried him the same day and all I remember is feeling hopeless and wondering if I would ever see him again.

From that day on I would visit his grave every single morning before I left for school. One day I sat by his grave and looked into the sky as I had done so many times before. "God, please let Striper know I love him and please make sure he's okay".

No clouds were present in the sky. Before me, against the blue sky was a cross made from clouds. Right above me in the sky. Tears sprung to my eyes and I ran to tell my parents who quickly doubted me. I ran back out, and clouds dispersed in the sky. The cross was no longer there. I was afraid at first, now older I feel like this was a beautiful message. Striper or a higher power was telling me it's okay, and he's okay.

To this day, every time I lose a pet I remember this moment and can't help but think we will see each other another day. Tears come to my eyes and I wonder where they really are and hope they know how much I love them. I know how sad, depressing, how lonely, losing a pet is. You feel like a piece of you has been torn away.

I believe there is a special place where they run free, free of pain, free of hurt, free of everything. They wait there patiently, waiting for the day they can lick your face, wag their tail, meow, woof and tell you how much they missed you and how they never stopped loving you. Keep love in your heart for those you have lost, remember how happy they were, remember you will see them again.

Till Then....<3

I lost my Little Buddy... Oliver.. a year & a half ago. There hasn't been a day that I have not cried. I feel like sometimes I just don't want to be here anymore.... because it hurts too much. I have 3 more little ones now... that I know love & need me... & that is the only reason I keep going. I really don't know that I could if it were not for them. I know there just has to be another place. We are all given just a tiny bit of time here. There has to be a reason for this life... & there has to be more. I pray my boy is ok... & will be there when my days here are done. He lived his life giving me all of his love... comforting me... & I will miss him until we meet again.
