Happy
5/21/2002 - 9/18/2020Hi Happy,

It’s been three months and I still can’t write this without crying. 18 years and sounds like a long time but it wasn’t long enough to do everything that I wanted to do. I’m sorry I couldn’t do them with you earlier before you lost your sight and hearing, before your hips got bad. We still have your winter coat hanging on the wall the one that daddy never wanted to get rid of, the one he always put on you to take you out in the winter. Your bed is still next to ours and your dad still turns on the night lights in the living room like he used to for you every night to help you when you wanted water at night. Happy we miss you very very much. I still remember the first day we brought you home from the pet store, when you were walking around with a pig ear hide and couldn’t see cuz it was so big, I thought it was the cutest thing when we saw you. I remember how you wouldn’t stop crying until 4AM the first night because you didn’t want to sleep alone and how small you looked when you stared up the staircase. And I guess after that, we spent many years sleeping on the same bed. You followed me everywhere.. and I mean everywhere. How you waited for me and James to come home from school, I remember seeing your little head poke out through the curtains. Or how I feared the leash burn when we took you out for walks and you ran after the squirrels. Or the times you’d run away and we had to chase you and you’d run even faster. I remember how afraid you were of lightning and when it rained, I could always find you under dads desk if you weren’t with me. I remember how every time I’d cry you would nudge me and try to climb on my lap until I would acknowledge you. I still can’t seem to clean up half your stuff without having a meltdown.. Happy you’ve filled my life with so much joy and happiness. You never left my side when I went through the toughest patches on my life. Happy, we miss you daily. We miss when you would push us away with your head because you were old and crabby, we even miss those sleepless nights when you cried all night because of dementia. Happy, we love you very much, thank you for always being Happy. For always having your tail wag even when you couldn’t see or hear us, even when your hips hurt and you didn’t remember where you were, or even on your last day when we knew we had to let you go.. thank you for always wagging your little tail. You chow hound you. And I’m sorry that I didn’t spend enough time with you, that I didn’t do enough things with you until later in your life. I will always miss you very much and I will always be grateful that I got to spend 18 wonderful years with you. I love you, always. We love you always.

Bootsie "Boo Boo" Diaz
1/18/2008 - 12/13/2020The sweetest and most affectionate cat ever! Boo Boo was so smart. Boo Boo was our baby and she gave us peace and helped relieve our stress. She would wake up every morning around 6:30am to 7am and just wait for me in the kitchen until I got up to get ready for work. She was loved so much by all of us especially my 3 kids Jessica, Marissa & Jose. Boo Boo made an impact with her love and affection to all of those she came in contact with. Boo Boo will truly be missed and never forgotten. May she rest in Kitty Heaven.Marsha DiazChicago, IllinoisDecember 14, 2020

Lord Stanley, Aka Stanley
4/24/2014Stanley was born on April 24, 2014 and was such a unique cat. With no tail his human parents thought something was wrong, only to learn he was a Manx cat. He had cute bunny legs and would wag his little stumpy around. He loved playing ring with his dad, helping his mom in the kitchen, eating vanilla Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, chasing mice and being with his brother. He loved trips to see his Grandparents and the treats he would get. He was social and was a ham for picture and people. He waited by the door for us to come home and would have long conversations with his dad. He was dads boy.

On December 7, 2020 Stanley passed to the Rainbow Bridge surrounded by his mom, dad and brother at home. He will always be my bud bud and will always be loved.

Harley
10/31/2009 - 11/29/2020Harley our hearts are broken and the house feels so empty without your warm gentle presence. We never had a dog before and we had no idea how much we would fall in love with you and cherish you as a family member. You filled our home and life with joy, laughter and purpose. You went through so very much being the runt of the litter and always having health issues, we worked so hard to get you the very best care we could. We hope you know letting you go was one of the hardest things we've ever done. We selfishly wanted to keep you forever, but we know you were suffering and you deserve to rest. You gave us the best 11 years and we are so grateful to you for being such a good boy and the apple of our eye.
Rest on our precious angel. We will always love and miss you the void you left will never be filled.
We have never known a love so pure, so sweet and so genuine.
