Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Gus
1/15/1999 - 6/17/2020You walked into my life one day and never left. I am so grateful to have had you as my buddy for 21 years. You were always independent with a loving and friendly spirit. You were there for the hardest parts of my life, but also for the celebrations. You stood by me through the turbulent and quiet times. Thank you for sticking with me. I will miss our walks together, snuggles in bed, and your constant demand for food. We feel a huge hole in my heart with you gone, but I know you are happy and free. We will always love you with all of our hearts. We miss you, Gus.Lara KossiakoffChicago, IllinoisJune 22, 2020
Hunter
12/5/2010 - 6/19/2020He will be deeply missed. For Being a first pet owner, he thought me so much. He was a sweet dog and was loved by my family.Carmen VazquezChicago, IllinoisJune 20, 2020
Bosley
3/4/1999My handsome little man Bosley was more than just a cat he was my family. I was fortunate to have him for 21 years. He got me through the deaths of both of my parents and brought me unparalleled joy everyday. I will miss him trying to steal my food and giving my high fives after a long day.Cara AllenChicago, IllinoisJune 17, 2020
Sophie
5/15/2006 - 6/9/2020Yesterday we lost our little bundle of joy, Sophie after 14 years of friendship and shared life experiences. She was our 4th shelter dog and all were equally as loving as her. Sophie just arrived home again a few minutes ago in a beautiful wood casket with her name engraved on it. The experience provided Sophie and us by Dr. Tyler was beautiful and left us very appreciative of him and Lap of Love. Sophie's loss has already made such a hole in our routine, no morning greeting or walks today, that we know we must refill that hole. I hope we can find a wonderful a new companion as she has been.Patrick HarringtonPalatine, IllinoisJune 10, 2020
Lester
5/8/2020 - 5/19/2020Our Lester was one-of-a-kind cat. My daughter Lauren and I went to a Strays foster home to adopt our one-of-a-kind kitten......that kitten was Lester. We were asked if we would consider adopting his sister, Lily. We couldn't say no so we came home with Lily also. They grew up together and were never separated for the 11 years to the month that he was with us.

Les (as we frequently called him) was a very curious kitty and was ALWAYS looking for fun and activity. He was very loving, but when he wanted his alone time he let you know by giving a little nip. Some of his favorite human foods were crab legs, sushi, and meatballs. He always made the cutest squeaking noise when it was time to eat.

He loved being around company and really felt comfortable with all who came into our home. He was fondly called "the Mayor" when he would visit some neighbors on a regular basis. So many who met him for the first time were in awe of his tuxedo markings and his beautiful eyes. He and his sister, for the most part, got along well, but on occasion would show his dominance with her by sneaking up on her in a sneak attack.

Nico
5/15/2010 - 5/31/2020Nico gave me the best 10 years of my life. He was such a sweet and playful pup even til his last day. He had such a unique personality. Partly because my family is very big and he adopted bits of all our personalities. He loved meeting all my friends and he’d greet strangers like new friends of his. He was the light of my everyday. It’s gonna get harder to keep pushing through but I know he’ll give me light up ahead on the journey.Erika PuentesChicago, IllinoisJune 2, 2020
Obi Wan
7/12/2011 - 5/23/2020Obi was a happy and sweet dog and we loved him very deeply. I hope he knew how grateful we felt that he was our dog and no one else's. We love all of our dogs but Obi was special and can never be replaced. He will always have an Obi-shaped place in our hearts and will never be forgotten.Carolyn AlonzoChicago, IllinoisMay 26, 2020

Ranger
7/22/2007 - 5/5/2020my Ranger Danger, you're the best boy.
when you get going, you are faster and more agile than any cheetah ever recorded. i know you only let all those squirrels and bunnies get away from you not because you were slower than them, but because your kind heart didn't REALLY want to hurt them. your floppy ears are the softest material known to man, and i am the luckiest person to have gotten so much quality time with them.
i look back on our pictures together, and i'm comforted with the knowledge that we had a good run, baby.
i love you, my best friend, my first born, my sunshine. my Ranger Danger, my best boy. i love you and i miss you, and i will keep your memory with me forever. tqm.

Snaggles
3/23/2004 - 5/5/2020It was time. A time none of us want to face, but it was time. Snags was my dearest little friend whom my wife, Anne, and I shared many wonderful times. We annoyed the hell out of him for the last two + years as we had to hand feed him twice a day in order to give him his insulin shots. He was a terrible eater, but being the sweetheart that he was, he put up with us. As many of you have probably experienced with diabetic animals, he lost his sight as well as his hearing. Snags never made any of that an issue. As it is said, uncompromising love and affection.
Snags, as you crossover the Rainbow Bridge, make sure you find Shelby, Max and Bear. They know you're coming. Send our love.
