About the “Returning from The Rainbow Bridge” Workbook

The loss of an animal family member can leave you broken, disheartened, and unsure about how to move forward. “Returning from The Rainbow Bridge” is a compassionate guide that will walk you through this experience of loss. The workbook format acts as a road map and a caring companion that will help navigate you and your family through your pain and loss.

It is a gentle friend that understands each person’s unique situation and believes in the power of the special relationship shared with a beloved animal.

Everyone has a special story with their animal. Each story and each relationship is unique and beautiful—something to cherish.

Within these pages, you will be encouraged to remember, celebrate, and honor the full life of your animal family member.
