A Parting Prayer for Mimi
Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort our beloved companion, Mimi
across the Rainbow Bridge.
Assign her to a place of honor,
for she has been a faithful servant
and has always done her best to please me.
Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing her from pain and suffering.
Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of her life
with the love she has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor her
by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember me as well
and let her know that I will always love her.
Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of her companionship
and for the time we’ve had together.
And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now.
There are no words that can truly express how profoundly saddened we are at the loss of Mimi. She has been a faithful, loving companion for 15 years and has helped us weather many storms. She was our ‘Love Monster’, our ‘Beautiful Princess’ and she always brightened our days with endless kisses and unconditional love. I can only hope that our decision was the right one and that she left us knowing that there will never be a cat so loved and adored as her. As it is said, Pets are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
Mimi played a significant role in our family and she will forever be missed.
