***SPECIAL MESSAGE – PLEASE READ*** ~ 01/24/2019
Portrait Of An Angel has been on the web for almost 23 years. Our Memory Wall has grown to hold thousands of names that I’ve been humbled and honored to include there. The time is coming to begin the process of closing this site. There are no words to express the emotions involved in making this decision. I often say that everything has an ending but I know that the spirits of the animals on The Memory Wall will last forever. We will stop adding names to The Memory Wall on 1/1/2020 and Portrait Of An Angel website will shut down on or about 2/12/2020. From the very bottom of my heart I am grateful and humbled for what the past 23 years has gifted me…new friends, the opportunity to help those who are hurting and most of all for the love of the spirits of those whose names are on The Memory Wall. Thank you.

The Memory Wall

Welcome to a gathering of Bridgekids. The aim of The Memory Wall is to share with you the collective love of our animals who have left us too soon. There is a rhyme and reason for the way the wall is set up and it is through the guidance of the animals at Rainbow Bridge that The Memory Wall exists. The Wall itself will remain one page, never to be broken down into multiple pages. It matters not how long the page is; this simply gives them more time to be with you as you scroll through. No Bridgekid will be excluded from The Memory Wall; once a name is requested we will include it as soon as possible. (You will find our email link below.)

All Bridgekids will be listed regardless of whether another animal on the Wall shares the same name. Also please note that we list first names (or call names) only, we do not include last names.

Keep in mind that some of these animals were homeless until kind and compassionate people came along and showed them love before their earthly life ended. The Memory Wall is for all animal spirits whether they be wild or domesticated - dog, cat, rabbit, ferret, horse, bird, reptile etc. and is also dedicated to every animal that never found a home of their own while on this earth.

These special spirits would simply like you to come to The Memory Wall and sit awhile; read their names and think of how very much they *all* love *you*. Take a moment and close your eyes, listen to the music and let them into your heart. The Memory Wall is not only a gift from the animals that share your love but all the adoring animals at Rainbow Bridge.

A gathering of Bridgekids awaits you....
(Updated daily - please refresh often)

Please use the email link below to send us your request to
have your Bridgekid's name included on The Memory Wall.

**PLEASE NOTE** - due to the volume of requests I receive for names to be submitted to the Memory Wall I cannot keep track of where each name is located. Also, please understand that we cannot include last names - as stated we include first names only. Once I receive a request I do my best to get the names on the Memory Wall within 24 hours but again, due to the high volume of requests I cannot write each individual back and let them know the names have been included. Thank you so much for your understanding.
