Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
3/23/2006 - 1/14/2018Misty was loved deeply by her family. On her last day she enjoyed her back yard, ate as much sausage as she wanted, and was surrounded by the love of her family. Misty will always live in our hearts.Aurora, ColoradoJanuary 15, 2018
7/18/2006 - 1/3/2018Mya was the most incredible pup. I thanked her often for being my sweet pea. She was incredibly smart, opened doors (both ways!), rang a bell to go outside, could pick out her toys by name in a lineup. She was called the love bucket because there was so much love in her that she must have a full bucket of it at all times. She was protective of and devoted to her Mom and thought her Dad was the best play toy ever. She was so beautiful I would constantly be stopped and asked what kind of dog she was. Stunning was the usual adjective but she did get the Farah Fawcett of dogs once. She is missed beyond compare. Please tell me there is a doggie heaven... I love you little nut.Christiane KellyChicago, IllinoisJanuary 15, 2018
8/20/2003 - 10/13/2016In loving memorial of our lovely Samantha ,
This memorial is being posted late, but we want to post it so that others have a reference for this incredibly significent service which helped us so much. Being able to read others' posts gave us a confident feeling about the Lap of Love organization and such a wonderful veterinarian - Dr. Ashleigh Rhoades.
Samantha was our constant companion from the time she was a two-month old puppy who we adopted from the Seattle Humane Society – a Labrador retriever/shepherd mix who they thought would get to be about 70 pounds. She grew to be a big girl – 107 pounds, and she had the best and sweetest personality. All it took was one bark and the turn of her head for us to know she wanted a cookie from her cookie jar on the kitchen counter, and if more than one person was home, she would sit and wait until a second person came into the kitchen so that she’d get a second cookie.
In her last year, she suffered from severe arthritis and bone spurs, and although we tried everything possible to ease her pain – water therapy, laser treatments, and chiropractic and medication, we could no longer help her.
Because of her large size and inability to walk and our desire for her to pass at home in the comfort of her family and on her comfortable pillow, we contacted Lap of Love. Our regular veterinarian provided us with their brochure. From the first conversation through the next difficult day when Dr. Ashleigh Rhoades came to our home, we appreciated everything they did to help us and for Samantha to pass without pain. Dr Ashleigh's concern, kindness and professionalism, was very much appreciated. We are very very thankful and greatful for her coming to our home so that Samantha was at home with us when she passed.

7/8/2003 - 1/12/2018Friday Jan. 12, 2018 our Cali Girl passed away peacefully at home by the sides of her Mom and Dad of 14 ½ years. Thank you for your unconditional Love and waiting for us at the door when we came home, sitting by our sides while watching TV. If the word bye-bye was said, she would be the first one at the door ready to go! I loved how you moved your blankets into a perfect pile to make a pillow to rest your head at night. How you ran when you heard the bath water running, or sitting in the back yard just looking at the birds 3 feet from you never chasing them. We called you our Gucci girl!Cassandra WebsterLas Vegas, NevadaJanuary 14, 2018

3/13/2007 - 1/13/2018Our dear little sweetie, buddy, crabby apple, best little friend, Blue - has left our world today, in the most gentle way possible. In our home, in the comfort of one of her carpeted tree on her blanky. Both of us were right there with her at the time. We will miss her immensely. She was always with us both where ever we were together, or sitting between us. Blue was very special to us. She showed us even to her last breath, how extremely tough she was and how much we meant to her. We will never forget her.Dan JohnsonBowie, MarylandJanuary 14, 2018
1/10/2018Weaver, a most kind and loving dog, is now at peace in a better place with a healthy body and a happy mind. He deserves all the joyous blessings with his eternal existence in God’s universe.

Weaver and the rest of my family would like to thank Dr. Annie Dion-Byrd for being there with us during this time of transition for Weaver. Dr. Annie is one of the nicest, most caring people we have ever met. We were very thankful to have her visit our home twice during the last two weeks to discuss Weaver and his health. Dr. Annie had a gentle touch with all of us and listened to each of our concerns and questions, as well as numerous stories, about Weaver. She helped us determine what was best for him at this difficult time and ensured we did everything possible to place Weaver first and foremost in consideration with our decisions. We are forever grateful to Dr. Annie and the Lap of Love Community. Thank you for being so kind and considerate with our boy and the rest of the King family.

9/15/2000 - 1/13/2018Sugar...
You are hands down the worst cat I have ever even met. You are bipolar, you are rude, you blinded my dog when she was still alive. You hated my grandpa who loved you. You murdered small mice that came into our home. You terrified everyone who met you. You are SO loud. You meow your deep meow all the time & hit me in the face (with claws!) when I sleep. You growl every time I love you.
And that's why you're the best cat I have ever met. You have more personality than most humans I know. Thank you so much for being my best friend. Thank you for growing up with me. You have been there for every step of my life from the time I was eight years old. You knew me as a child, as a teenager, & finally, as an adult. We have lived in four states together. You have helped me through all of my worst times & you are all of my best times. Every major moment of my life includes memories of you. You have been the best part of my day for seventeen years. I spend every day looking forward to coming home & talking to you because you always answer. You always come when I say your name, you always are there. My home already feels so empty without you but this sadness is 100% worth every single moment I shared with you over the past 17 years. Thank you so much for being my best friend.

1/11/2018Here's to you, Charlie. We do miss your furry self, purring and nuzzling, and messes too.Denise RoyerKansas City, MO, MissouriJanuary 14, 2018
1/11/2018My sweet Ginger oh how I miss you. I miss waking up and you not being on my bed. Or jumping on the table awaiting your treats for the day. And you were a very vocal girl. You just loved to communicate with your special meow that sounded like "wow-wow". I will never forget that. You lived over 17 years and those were 17 years I needed you the most as I was also going through some difficult times. You will never be forgotten. Love, your daddy, Kenny.Charlotte, North CarolinaJanuary 14, 2018
