To my Elsa and Elmo buns,

Words cannot express the pain and loss I am feeling at the prospect that you have gone. You both meant more to me than you can even imagine and brought me so much happiness every single day. You both had such strong characters and were so cheeky in your own ways. Elsa – I will never forget when I first saw you in Hull on the way home from our travels. I had such a strong sense that you had to come home with us and was adamant that we weren’t going to leave without you! You were so sweet and unlike any other pet we’ve ever had! I loved seeing you hop in the air when you were happy or flopping on your side whenever you were tired and content! Trips to ‘petsathome’ became very expensive ones but I didn’t mind – only the very best for my Elsa bun.
I noticed you started to become a bit more reserved and was worried you were unhappy which is why I decided that you needed some company in the form of another bun. Elmo, you were the sweetest little thing! Mum and dad weren’t keen on me getting another bun however I did it when they were on holiday. I knew as soon as they saw you they’d love you and realise how happy you made Elsa. You were so cuddly and loving and definitely took to Elsa straight away (a bit too keen at times). I always saw you Elmo as Elsa’s eyes and knew that you were looking out for her! I loved having you both in the playroom with me hopping around causing mischief. You both loved your apples and carrots and looked so adorable munching on them.
The night you screamed because you were scared made me so upset so I brought you both inside and you slept in my room. I wish I’d kept you inside the whole time but I know how much you loved being outside in your run on top of your box! Then there was the time only last week when you both escaped! My heart sank when mum shouted from the garden that you had both got out of your hutch! Fortunately Elsa is white so was easy to spot hopping around the bottom of the garden and Elmo would always stomp his foot whenever he felt like he was in danger so we just followed the sound and luckily you were both unharmed! I kept you both in the bathroom for a couple of days until dad could come up with something stronger so you couldn’t escape. Just last night I had you inside with me, and you were both you usual selves – hopping around, jumping in the air, eating and sleeping.
Then today the most awful, traumatic thing happened. Something managed to push your cage in, create a hole and petrify you both to death. Even typing this now it doesn’t seem real. I am so unbelievably distraught and feel physically sick at what has happened. You have no idea how much you both meant to me – you honestly made me so happy and almost gave me a purpose. I feel immense guilt about what has happened to you both and wish there was something I could have done to prevent it. The only thing that is bringing me slight comfort is knowing that you are both together. I don’t know how either of you would have coped without the other.
I’m so sorry my baby buns I love you with all my heart and will never ever forget you!! Nothing will ever come close to the love I felt for you both and I’m just so sorry your lives were cut short. I will treasure all of our memories we shared together and pray that the lives you had were happy ones!

All my love in the world

Oh Kirsty,

I am so very sorry about the physical loss of your precious Elsa and Elmo !

They do know how very much you love them. wub.gif And they are together, as you said, and in a blissful realm---still with you, too. Their spirits are no longer confined to their physical bodies. Way in the future, when it is your time, you'll all be fully reunited. Until then, they want you to have as much joy as possible. Maybe they'll even lead you to a couple of other furry souls who might need you.

What a beautiful letter you wrote to them. Maybe sometime you might even try writing a letter to yourself "from" them. I'm sure they would tell you what a happy earthly life they led with you. wub.gif

Please check in here again.

Sending you prayers of peace!

Kathy
P.S. Would it be okay with you if I moved this topic to the "Death and Dying" category? More people will see it there. I would leave a link in the "Pet Memorials" category (here) also.

Hi, kirsty, please permit me to add my sincerest sympathies in the physical loss of your beloved Elsa and Elmo. Losing a companion is never easy regardless of the circumstances or how long we are blessed with the privilege of their company. Losing two companions so unexpectedly and tragically intensifies the grief.

Kirsty, this grief journey is one of the most painful experiences you will know on this side of eternity. It is a journey that is filled with many different emotions which can overwhelm us all at one time - - which is why it is referred to as a horror roller coaster ride. Guilt / remorse is one of the many emotions we all feel and it is one of the hardest to reconcile because it comes from looking back and trying to make sense of all the whys, what ifs, and if onlys that haunt and torture our hearts when we are so emotionally vulnerable. Hopefully in time you will be able to find a peace in your heart that your beloved Elsa and Elmo know you love them and did everything humanly and humanely in your power to give them a happy, healthy earthly journey.

Even though your beloved Elsa and Elmo are no longer here in this earthly realm, the love bond you and your beloved companions share is eternal - - for love is not restricted to the physical laws of time and space. Your beloved Elsa's and Elmo's sweet Living Spirits are always and forever a part of your heart and memories, kirsty - - they are always and forever a heartbeat close to you.

I know so very well from first hand experience that when our hearts are entrenched in deep grief there are no adequate words in any language that can soothe the searing pain of sorrow. Still I hope the words I share with you will offer you some measure of comfort, support, encouragement, and hope as you travel your grief adjustment journey.

Thank you so much for honoring us in sharing your beloved Elsa and Elmo with us, kirsty. Perhaps sometime you would like to share a picture of them with us - - but only when / if you want to. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, kirsty, and please let us know how you're doing.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Dear Kathy,

Thank you so much for taking the time to show your support it really means a lot to me knowing there are people out there with such compassion. Of course you can move this into the dead/dying category it would be lovely to receive some other forms of support and hopefully help people realise they're not on their own when such traumatic experiences occur. Thank you again I really do appreciate it.

Kirsty

Hi Kirsty,

I moved it.

How are you doing? Thinking of you and trying to send good energy your way! Keep in touch. You will make it through this and your precious bunnies are right there with you---just not in their physical forms that you miss so very much.

Prayers,

Kathy
