Montana Rainbow Bridge Crossing

I crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Oct 6 2000. My Dad and I were coming home from a trip to Alaska that year(it was our 5th trip up there together)and he stopped to give me a walk at a rest area along Interstate 15. We walked for a bit,then my Dad went in to use the rest room and left me outside. This was northern Montana,a very deserted place,and traffic on the interstate was sparse so he felt safe in leaving me outside for the few minutes that he was in there. The Angels must have been calling me,however,and for reasons still unknown to my Dad,I decided to cross the interstate. I was struck and killed by a car. As my spirit was departing the area,I witnessed Dad crying over my body by the roadside. It was ironically a beautiful,crisp fall day. The mountain scenery was spectacular,thus Dad decided to bury me there. In the following months it just so happened that Dad`s sister was traveling out to see a friend in Montana. Dad had thought that he shouldn`t have left my body there and asked his sister to retrieve it if possible and have it cremated. This was done in Feb 2001. My urn now sits in Dad`s house thus my spirit feels closer to him. Dad just scanned the pix that his sister took at the rest area accident site when my body was recovered. They are displayed here on my page. I`ve had a great life here across the Rainbow Bridge since that fateful day at the Craig,MT rest area.

Butch, I can imagine just how devasted your Dad was that day. I know that he holds you in his heart and cherishes the memories he has of your adventures.

I also know that you, Lady and Smiley, as well as your Bridge friends have gone on great adventures at the Bridge.

Say hi to the gang.

Your pal, Riley

Yes, life at the Bridge is good. But we all have that wee bit of sadness and longing for those we left behind. Hugs to you dear friend, hugs...
