Hey Marc,

No problem! rolleyes.gif Sorry this has taken me so long to reply to, but for some reason my computer at home will not show this particular thread in it's entirety. Every other thread opens just fine but this one. Anyway Marc, it's my pleasure to help you keep the lights on for as long as possible. This site sent me on a journey back to happiness and sanity and also sent me to explore other avenues I never dreamed I would take on. I'm truly grateful that LS was here when I needed it. My prayer is that LS will be here for a very long time for those who will no doubt need a safe place to go where people honestly understand the joys we have with our loved furries as well as the deep anguish and heartbreak of losing them. It is here we all walk together through this journey of healing.......... picking up the broken pieces of our hearts along the way. smile.gif

Thanks so much Marc!

Huggers, Beth

While all people here help each other, there are
times where an advanced degree of help may be needed.

If at any time you feel overwhelmed or consumed
by grief, it is always best to seek professional help.

QUOTE

a giant tribble hug goes out to Cryss who sent the site a generous donation in memorium of her pup Sassy



in Cryss's own words from an email yesterday:

QUOTE
It would be lovely for you to mention Sassy.

I’m oscillating between extreme sadness and grief stricken numbness and the site and the other forum members are my salvation.



glad you were able to find the help you need here, we're all here 24/7! god bless.

The L-S.com website has made a payment of $240.00 USD for annual domain hosting, which leaves us with a loss (-$52). You can view the current donations tallies here.

All funds received beyond the site hosting fee (via member donation and through amazon books affiliate payments) go to one or more shelters in the form of funds or supplies. Unlike similar websites, we do not sell anything or charge a fee to make a profit. the site is member-supported and is here for only one reason: to provide help with loss and the grief it brings, and to remember the animals we love so much.

please consider supporting the website ....even without member support, L-S.com will remain online as long as i am around to keep it running.

As always, glad that you found us. sad that you had to.

i would like to extend a big thank you to "moon_beam" for her support for the site during this holiday season. i am so glad the people who find their way here get the help they need. i will be adding her donation to the tally at the beginning of this post, all donations go back to supporting the site and to no-kill shelters and habitats.

here's what she said:

QUOTE
it is a blessing to be able to help support the wonderful Lightning Strike Forum. I wish I could donate more, and more often.

I dedicate my contribution to the honor of the Lightning Strike Forum - - for it's wonderful mission, and for your thoughtfulness and dedication in offering this venue where we can come together for both individual and collective comfort, compassion, encouragement, and hope that cannot be found elsewhere in our lives during the difficult grief adjustment journey to the physical absence of our beloved companions.

big thanks and a Tribble hug to LoveMyMickey for her generous donation.

this is what she wrote: "in memory of our little Mickey on his first year Angel-versary. Thanks again for this forum. I have learned a lot besides getting a lot of support.....God Bless..."

i am glad people get the support they need here, it is one of my main missions in life. the funds will go towards the hosting and domain costs for 2012, and as always, anything leftover goes to charity.

thanks again!

added $11.00 from this site's amazon.com affiliate efforts to the tally above. thanks to everyone who shopped at amazon.com using our affiliate link, which can be found here: http://www.lightning-strike.com/pet-loss-donations.htm

shopping at amazon.com for the holidays using the LS Pet Loss Support affiliate link is EXACTLY the same as shopping from the site's homepage. you can shop for anything on the amazon website, you won't notice anything special, it is 100% secure, and it costs you nothing to participate.
