    My beloved Tucker passed away peacefully in my arms.



    They say memories are golden
    well maybe that is true.
    I never wanted memories,
    I only wanted you.


    A million times I needed you,
    a million times I cried.
    If love alone could have saved you
    you never would have died.


    In life I loved you dearly,
    In death I love you still.
    In my heart you hold a place
    no one could ever fill.


    If tears could build a stairway
    and heartache make a lane,
    I'd walk the path to heaven
    and bring you back again.


    Our family chain is broken,
    and nothing seems the same.
    But as God calls us one by one,
    the chain will link again.

    Noooo! This is the post I never wanted to see. Tucker reminded me so much of my Charlie, bodies wracked with every conceivable defect yet gallant to the end. Jennifer, I'm so sorry. Fly free, Tucker; I hope you cross paths with Charlie at the bridge.

    There is a new star in the sky tonight, shining brightly down with love for you Jennifer. You have my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy on his passing. What a dance you two shared together and I am so thankful you were with him and holding him when he left. My heart goes out to you.

    Jennifer, you gave Tucker so many more days than he would have had without you - and each day was filled with love for each other. He was one of a kind - and you were a one of a kind bean to him. I so didn't want to see this post - kept hoping that he would be able to go on and remain with you a longer time.

    So many of our special kitties were waiting for him to join them at the Bridge - they are free and young again and we are sad and lonely without them. We will miss seeing the posts about your sweet Boy - he has always been one of a kind - a beautiful fighter with the persona of a giant.

    My heart goes out to you - please know that your boy Tucker will not be forgotten by those of us who have watched the dance you two have shared.

    Sending lots of hugs and prayers of comfort.

    Emmy & Dude (& Mittsi too)

    Oh, my dearest Jennifer,

    I haven't been on The Board for a week or so because of, well, stuff... Just logged on and saw your post, and my heart immediately went to that place hearts go to when they simply want to stop beating, yet know they must endure... I do not know where that place is; but, I know it's a sighing place...




    I guess it's the place where the heart goes to take over your brain and remind your body to breathe.























    Please accept my heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies, dearest Jennifer. You have always been his champion! May precious Tucker visit your dreams often to remind you of his love, which will endure...



























    Fly free, darling Tucker! Soar high on your handsome wings, precious boy! Please visit your mommy's dreams to let her know you're okay now. You can do that! Just ask Giz if you need help, okay?












    I know what a toll it took on your heart to be with him as he crossed over, my dearest Jennifer... But, love and hearts endure... And, he will visit your dreams...






    Much love and countless gentle hugs for you, precious girl. Please take care of yourself, okay?
    Deb and Nikki -- and, Giz, who's, no doubt, explaining everything to Tucker in between dancing and eating the shrimp from Yung Chow fried rice...









    Request From Rainbow Bridge

    by Constance Jenkins

    In Loving Memory of Isolde Jenkins -- and Tucker...


    Weep not for me though I am gone
    Into that gentle night.
    Grieve if you will, but not for long
    Upon my soul's sweet flight.
    I am at peace, my soul's at rest
    There is no need for tears.
    For with your love I was so blessed
    For all those many years.
    There is no pain, I suffer not,
    The fear now all is gone.
    Put now these things out of your thoughts,
    In your memory I live on.
    Remember not my fight for breath
    Remember not the strife.
    Please do not dwell upon my death,
    But celebrate my life.

    Jennifer, I have no words. I know how much you love Tucker. Your poem said all I could ever say and more. I am so very very sorry. You were lucky to have found each other and so very lucky to have been able to share the last precious moment of his life on earth. My thoughts and love are with you.

    I am so very sorry.

    Oh ((((Jenn)))) Having met Tucker, I know what a regal, loving, amazing little man he was--- and continues to be. He was meant to be yours, and you were always his. Not many people are lucky enough to have the kind of bond the two of you did... and will continue to have even though Tucker won't be there in the physical sense.

    I remember my very first day here... almost 5 years ago... you were so kind. You reached out to me and for that I am forever grateful. The help and love you gave to my Fletcher... the times you watched all my furries... the way Tucker didn't mind having his home shared for a short while by 7 more kitties... the love and laughter you gave to my daughters. It's something I treasure... just as I will treasure my memories of your brave orinch boy.

    Words don't seem enough... so please know the sentiment behind them is true. I am so, so sorry... and wish there was more I could do.

    Much love to you... and Ron...

    Fly free Tucker... find your friends at the Bridge... they are all waiting to chase butterflies in the grass with you....

    Hi Jennifer,
    I don't post much except for help and to see how your little ones were doing. You always took good care of them and, now for one, you could do no more. If Tucker could have told you how much he appreciated all that you have done for him and how close he felt to you while he was here, he would have. Now he will let you feel his love for you in the only way he can. I know it hurts and I don' t think it ever goes away but, today more then ever we will try and share your hurt. We are all feeling really sad.

    The relationship that you shared with Tucker was awe inspiring, the love so deep you could feel it in every word you wrote and every story you shared. Thank you, for sharing your amazing, beautiful, valiant, courageous orinch boy with us and allowing us the privilege of knowing him. He touched many hearts Jenn and he will never be forgotten.

    He left this world as he lived his life.... embraced in your arms and surrounded by enduring love.

    Peace to you Tucker... peace, dearest one.

    I am so sorry you have lost your little man, Tucker. I know how much you gave him of your love and energy and time in the last few months. He was loved, and now he is at peace and out of any pain. He runs free!

    May you find comfort in the coming of Spring and the antics of your other cats, especially Lily Grace.

    Peace,

    Another board legend has moved on to take his place with those saved by FDMB after living longer and happier lives than they were 'supposed' to. Being your boy, meant he had all the love any kitty could ever want. He knew he needed to be near/beside/within your arms as the angel came to escort him to his friends who gathered at the bridge.

    I know the pain that settled in on you as Tucker's pain left him completely. So many of us know that all encompassing rack of pain, and choking sobs... But know that your boy will be staying close... He'll send you a sign, a rainbow - a song - something only you will recognize as what it is... He'll send his love to you to keep, as he took your love for him with him as he left.

    I am so very truly sorry, that this pain must be yours now. May you feel my arms around you and excuse my tears mingling with your... I'm so very sorry... so very sorry.

    Gosh Jen. I froze when I saw the alert in Community. Last I knew you were giving him the enzymes in his food for suspected EPI. I'm so sorry to hear this. I've never seen a cat overcome so much in his time. Seriously. He is really tough and are you. You gave endless care and devotion to your heart kitty. And all your other kitties too. He truly IS a legend on this board. So many people "know" him and love him. Including me. His story is amazing. I'm so glad you found him - you guys had a great life together. There are so many friends with him at the bridge from this board. ((((Jennifer))))

    Tears. :sad: I'm so sorry it was his time. It's hard to find the words to express the immense sadness we feel when one of ours passes on. :cry:

    ((Jennifer)) I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious Tucker. No cat was loved more. He is now free of any pain, resting in the arms of our Heavenly Father, who will give you peace. It is touch going thru this. You were the best mommabean, and he carries all your love with him. Donna

    Oh Jennifer I am so very very sorry. You both fought so hard. I guess the time just comes when they become too tired to fight any more. Tucker was so special but then you know that. A real legend on the Board. He taught us all so much. He will be truly missed.

    Fly high and proud sweet Tucker. You have definitely earned those beautiful golden wings. Please make sure you visit your Mama with a sign that you are happy and healthy at the Bridge real soon. She needs to know that.

    I am so sorry to hear this. Tucker fought a good fight to stay with you. That is a most lovely poem. May God bring you comfort and peace now.

    Tucker is in the very best company up there in Heaven.

    Oh, Jennifer. I am so, so sorry. ((HUGS))

    Like others have said, Tucker was a true hero. He rallied so many times, it almost seems inconceivable that his time was running out.

    I think of you as a hero too - because you're so generous to others here (including me), and because you've taken in so many wonderful kitties to your home.

    Many warm & peaceful thoughts to you and Ron.
