RIP BEAUTIFUL BELLA

Our faithful and much loved Bella came into our lives on July 8th 1996 and left us 14 years later on July 15th 2010
In all those years she was Hubbys constant companion
She chose him as her friend when she was given to us by our girls all those years ago
He didnt want another dog but Bell decided he was the one and never left his side
She is so missed

Illene, I am so sorry to hear that Bella has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge! Pets are such wonderful companions and truly become family members. They give so much and demand so little. I know you and your hubby will treasure the 14 years of memories you've made with her and she will live on in your hearts forever!

XOXO,

Hi Illene Sweetie...
Oh precious Bella received her wings and graduated to doggie heaven. She was a little old lady in dog years, and she served her master well. I know she was loved and I know she will be so missed. They give us such joy.

I will be remembering your sweet family in prayer as your days begin and end without sweet Bella. She will live forever in your hearts. What memories she gave you over the years.

Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Love is eternal. Life is one big patchwork.........beautiful yet often difficult. Woven with memories, which without life would be meaningless.
With love and many thoughts.
