 The Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.

It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many splendid colors.

Just this side of Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills,

and valleys with lush, green grass.

When beloved pets die, they go to this place.

There is always food and water and warm spring weather.

The old and frail animals are young again.

Those who are maimed are made whole again.

They play all day with each other.

There is only one thing missing.

They are not with their special person who loved

them on earth.

So each day they run and play.

Until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up!


The nose twitches.

The ears are up!

The eyes are staring.

And this one suddenly runs from the group.

You have been seen!

And when you and your special friend meet,

you take him in your arms and embrace.

Your face is kissed again and again and again,

and you look once more more into the eyes of your trusting pet.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together…

Never again to be separated.


     Sallie is survived by: sons, Ronald L. husband of Christina L. Kilby of Lancaster, Tony Torres of Reems; five grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; nieces, Angie and Alisia Lara of Lancaster; brothers Bill and Dave Sweigart and nephews Gabe Rhen and Sean Gentel all of Lancaster.
