To a dear friend, Ruth W. Marks,
thanks for being a good friend to Marjorie and me.

Marjorie had a great love for all animals.
Especially for her own who are with her again, on the other side of the "Rainbow Bridge":


Marjorie was 75 years old.

Marjorie's mom Mildred (Newell) Francisco (age 91) and my mom Lillian (Engvall) Edgerton (age 86) died on the same day and within minutes of each other on 8 Sept. 1982.

The Reverend Alva Brock of the First Methodist Church of Dade City (Pasco County) Florida officiated at the burial service for Marjorie in the Florida National Cemetery, Bushnell, (Sumter County) Florida.

Those We Have Held In Our Arms For A Little While We Will Hold In Our Heart ~always~.

Dear Marjorie,
My Seventh And Last Penny - Rest Forever In The Arms Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Son Of The Living God. ~always~


Just this side of heaven is a place called the "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, sunshine and toys, 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. Those who were abused or mal-treated have had their tears wiped away, and sit for as long as they want on the Golden Flowing Robes of God's Lap. They feel the touch of Pure Love on their heads and finally know happiness. All the animals are happy and content, except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent and her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, she breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, 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 those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the "RAINBOW BRIDGE" together...
