LADY DARBY ~ 1996-2008

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share with you someone who was and is still so dear to our hearts. She was a wonderful companion of 12 years.....

she loved to cuddle,
she loved her treats,
she loved going on walks,
she loved to sleep,
she loved to watch her daddy paint,
she loved mommy when she returned home from work,
she loved us in a special way.
I can't help but feel God's love for us when I think of her.

We had to put our beautiful Lady Darby to sleep. We miss her so much. I spent all my days with her. But the Lord is so good. He brought us to the mountain top for five days and He gave us so much Grace. We are so thankful that we had 12 wonderful years with Darby and she was in no pain. I was dreading the day that she would have to go but my Lord gave me a revelation that brought me even closer to Himself, Darby was a means of His Grace and He will never forsake His children. He made her specially for us and He made her to extend His Love for us. We also know that Lady Darby is running around with her sister in the King's garden. Oh....there is Joy in suffering. Jesus is bigger in my heart.

May God shine His lovely face upon you all.

James and Nadine

Dear James and Nadine,

I am so sorry for your loss. It has been months since your dear, sweet Lady Darby went to the Rainbow Bridge to wait for you and I wish I had have known about it when it happened.

Here's a poem that I hope will comfort you when you think of Lady Darby:


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers.

Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.

The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

God bless you, James and Nadine!
