Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
2/14/2001Bear was my companion and best friend. He was my son’s best buddy! Your heart melted as soon as you met Bear. His face was so loving and kind. I am so thankful for the years we spent together.Elizabeth NagyChicago, IllinoisJuly 3, 2020
5/23/2005 - 7/1/2020Checkers, 15 years old, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. He was born on May 23, 2005 and joined our family on July 23, 2005. Our family grew up with him. Joey was 6 years old, Bobby 8, and Jamie 10 when Checkers first came into our lives. Joey was afraid of dogs, but he fell in love with Checkers, as we all did.

We are so very sad to let go, but it was his time and we will cherish the many memories of him.

7/8/2020 - 6/20/2020My sweet Lucy was a wonderful, loving, and affectionate chonk of a cat. She loved her treats and I always knew when she was happy when she would lay on her back with her feet in the air purring. Lucy was the definition of calm. She was never a runner, and liked playing with ribbons and feather sticks on her back. She was the master at catching flies, just like Mr. Miagi (from karate kid). She would wait for them to come to her and she would catch them between her paws. Being athletic was not her forte, no matter how hard I tried to get her to run or chase toys. She would walk slowly to them, pick them up, and drown them in her water bowl. She flaunted her curves like the queen she was, and looked especially regal while dipping her paws into her water bowl and letting the water drip into her mouth, as this was the only way a true cat queen could drink water.

Lucy was so caring and loving, and cleaned her brother Linus every single day. He will never be as clean again without her. Linus will miss her, and meows a little differently now. She knew when I was having a bad day and always came and sat with me.

On Lucy's final day with me, she clearly had a conversation with Linus as I found them sitting face to face staring into each other's eyes. Lucy laid in her favorite spot on the windowsill and watched the birds as she drifted away peacefully. She is now with my mom who will love her just as much as I did. She will take care of Lucy until we meet again.

I am so thankful for Dr. Christie for helping me through this process.

3/17/2000 - 6/21/2020Dear Ruby,

You were a phenomenal cat who lived to be 20 years old. Born on St. Patrick's Day & died on Summer Solstice 2020 which was also a New Moon. I know the energy from the Universe took to an amazing place. You won't be forgotten; many loved you. May you rest in Peace with all those I've loved who have gone before.

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

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
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
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.
