Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
3/10/2003 - 6/19/2018I brought Ebony home hoping for an exercise partner and a reason to come home from work on time. I never imagined the depth of the love, commitment and bond that we would have. Ebony was not only loved by me, but my friends and extended family. He was the life of many parties, and a favorite road trip companion. We shared so many adventures. I’ve seen so many beautiful sunrises and sunsets and spent pleasant afternoons outside because of him. Ebony only got to spend a short time with his younger brother Curry, but Ebony is the reason I recognize who Curry is and who he can be. Ebony lead me to some of my dearest, lifelong friends. I love him so much and miss him.Kim SparksRaleigh, North CarolinaJune 21, 2018
5/13/2002 - 6/12/2017In memory of Caspar, my handsome, wild boy. It has been a year - friend, I miss you.Clare WoodsDurham, North CarolinaJune 13, 2018
7/7/2003 - 6/4/2018Dear, sweet Bella Bean. You were the love of our lives. You were an integral part of our family for almost 15 years. You've been gone 4 days, but we still feel you around us. A song on the radio, the sound of birds chirping outside, even specific times of the day remind us of you and make us smile. You are no longer with us physically, but you will always be in our hearts. You shared your pure, unconditional love with each of us and we're so much better for it. Run free, our baby Bella.Tracy VittiCary, North CarolinaJune 8, 2018
4/14/2004 - 5/31/2018Sadie girl was a beautiful companion with a warm and giving soul. I will miss her so deaply.Fuquay Varina, North CarolinaJune 1, 2018
4/2/2004 - 5/14/2018Bella was an amazing member of my family. I fell in love with Bella from the moment I saw her. She was always such a gentle and kind soul. She loved other dogs and really loved her human companions (adults, kids and babies). The first thing she would do is lick someone non-stop upon meeting them! That must have been her way of welcoming others in our home. I have so many great memories with Bella but my favorite times spent with Bella include cuddling with her on my bed or on the couch. She was always so sweet and loved to cuddle. Like a real life teddy bear! Bella never met a person she did not like and people felt the same way about her. Bella was very loved by everyone that came into her life and she will always be loved for eternity. It's difficult to move on in life without her. Having Bella by my side for 13 years and then not having her there has been a challenge. I try to find comfort in her spirit and know that she is resting peacefully across the rainbow bridge. Each day it gets a little easier, but how I wish she could still be by my side today. One day I know her spirit will come back to me. Perhaps in the form of another pet. I look forward to that day, but for now I will continue to think about all the happy times and know that my sweet girl is at peace. One day I will be too!Jen BenedettoFuquay Varina, North CarolinaMay 29, 2018
Benjamin Bruiser
5/25/2000 - 5/26/2018Benjamin our beloved dog passed over the rainbow bridge yesterday. One day past his 18th birthday. He was the best dog ever. But it was time.Paul LemieuxCary, North CarolinaMay 27, 2018
12/4/2005 - 4/16/2018Mick made our days bright and filled us with so much joy. We miss him so much and feel lost without him by our side. Our home isn't the same without our big, beautiful boy. His kisses and playful but gentle nature captured our hearts where he will forever live. We love you baby.Stephanie SlagleHillsborough, North CarolinaApril 18, 2018
8/31/2017 - 12/23/2017I read someplace that “Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts”, this was very true of Arwen. She left us at such an early age, yet she left us with great memories of her. She will forever be my little tamaskan puppy whose heart was too small for the love she shared.Joe ButtersRaleigh, North CarolinaApril 16, 2018
Mia Fiona
1/4/2011 - 4/9/2018Our sweet Mia gained her wings on 4/9. And that really is true because "angel" is the perfect word to describe her. She was the absolute sweetest dog and really loved life. She was not only beautiful, but patient, kind, smart, forgiving, and loyal. Her last few days were filled with her favorite things: dog park, walks with her dad, McDonald's double cheeseburgers, a car ride, and an ice cream cone. Her only flaw (but not really...) was that she didn't realize her size - at 125lbs, she demanded to sit on the laps of everyone. We don't know why she was taken away from us at only 7 years old (screw you cancer) or why God didn't answer our prayers, but we am comforted by knowing that she is living the sweet life up in heaven with her big brother Bam and all the little, fluffy, white dogs she obsesses over. We love you so much, sweet Mia, always and forever!Babb FamilyChapel Hill, North CarolinaApril 14, 2018
11/1/2007 - 3/26/2018Freddy was my first dog and I got him because my girls grew up and left home. I got him from the Wake County Shelter which at the time was a very sad place. My mom went with me and she cried the whole time. There are so many pit bulls. Freddy was a tricolor mix probably but they told me he was an Entlebucher Mountain Dog. He was found as a stray and was between 6 months and a year old. He had absolutely no training and that was very hard to do. He jumped on me so much I had bruises. I remember being at my wits end sometimes but it was totally worth it.
I could let him off leash in his favorite park - and he loved to go for walks. As he got older he didn't like toys anymore just walks and food. He loved food. One time he got in the pantry and ate a whole bag of dog food.
Last fall, he started limping and not being able to jump in the car. And, he didn't like to be picked up and at 60 lbs. it was hard to do. So it just got worse and worse and the vet said he had back knee problems and probably spine problems. I asked how I would know when it was time and everyone said I would know. Well, it was true - I couldn't let him suffer anymore. I don't think he was in excrutiating pain but his quality of life was gone. He did nothing but hobble from room to room and sleep.
I miss him terribly. The first week was the hardest, I cried everyday. The one week anniversary was the worst. It is getting better but there are waves of grief and missing him. I loved him very very much
