In November 2000, I went to Sissys grave to see her and talk to her. It was a cold day and I told her how much I missed her and how I needed to know that she was alright. It seemed to warm up around me, but it started to snow. Now, it does snow in our area, but according to all weather reports and history, it was not due to snow anytime soon. I told Sis I loved her and that I should go home to beat the snow on the roads.

As I started to leave, I looked towards the mountains and seen the biggest rainbow ever. It was bright and spanned two mountains. I looked back towards the cemetery and whispered "Thank You Baby". And I started the drive home. The snow started coming down faster and harder and was sticking to the roads fast.

About halfway home, I heard a clanging sound. I had lost a hubcap. I have lost hubcaps before, but never on the vehicle I was driving. I slowed as quick as I could to stop and retrieve my hubcap and as I stopped, a woman in a car had lost control of her car and slid into the guardrail and spun to a stop. Right where I would have been if I had not stopped!! Could it be, that Sis made me lose that hubcap to keep me from becoming involved in an accident? Was I put in that spot to make sure the woman was okay? I think that is exactly what happened. And the woman in the car was alright, just had a badly damaged car.

Do I believe that our pets let us know they are alright? I didn't before that day. I had only hoped. But, I would say there were too many coincidences that day to be just a fluke. I now tell people that our pets do let us know they are alright at the Bridge. All you have to do, is watch for the unexpected around you. It will be something that only you two will know and it could be great, or it could be subtle. And if you do not see it, I believe they keep trying until you do learn about them.

I think Sissy knew that I was having a hard time with her loss, and knowing how Sis always had to do things big, she really came through to make sure that I would not mistake it that day.

I've always believed that. When my MIL dog passed away they went to pick up his ashes and a butterfly landed on her shoulder. She still gets visited by butterflies around the day he passed away. He passed away in February, so it's special.
