Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
10/31/1999 - 9/27/2015It has taken me months to write this because I get so emotional trying to come up with the words fitting enough to describe my love for you. Our dearest Ebbie, not a day goes by that we don't think of you. When you left us a big part of our heart went with you. You were so special to our family. We shared so many memories together, happy and sad. I am eternally grateful that we were able to spend almost 16 years with you. I will forever cherish our bond and promise to always keep you in my heart. I hope you & Sheeba are chasing squirrels, and that you finally got that donut machine you always wanted.Kimberly CampbellMargate, FloridaDecember 30, 2015
Ling Ling
2/23/2002 - 12/21/2015Ling Ling was the sweetest dog. She was the boss of the house, loved pizza and going to the beach. She took up half the bed when we slept but she never complained when I asked her to move or get down. Even when she was getting worse, she always greeted me when I came home from work with a big smile and a full body wag. We all miss her very much, especially her pal Jack who she liked to keep in line. The house is empty without her but I know she is playing again. And although I can imagine her running and chasing things in the spirit world I wish she were here with me because a piece of my heart is missing.Caroline DaviesAnaheim, CaliforniaDecember 30, 2015

Otis V. Yarbatini
6/1/2001 - 1/29/2015My amazing dog, Otis, was an obedient, affectionate dog, who did hospice visits with me when I worked as a hospice chaplain. He was a very rambunctious youngster, being a Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix, but with lots of socialization and training he became a very lovable and wonderful companion. He was an extremely smart dog. As he aged and his arthritis became worse it became evident that he had to be a stay at home dog. We retired his name tag. Eventually the pain and mobility issues became to much to handle and he did not tolerate the pharmaceuticals so euthanasia seemed the only humane option. I cannot say enough about the compassion I experienced with Dr. Dawnetta and Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice. She took time to do life review and compassionately helped my beloved fur baby to suffer no more. He and I were treated with dignity, respect and compassion and I am forever grateful!Sue YarberSt. Louis, MissouriDecember 30, 2015
3/25/2004 - 12/10/2015Roxer came to our house as a 11 week old puppy. He was my constant companion, faithful and true friend for eleven and a half years. Roxer was always very playful, happy and with lots of energy to burn in our local park; he had big heart full of love for everybody he met, family, friends, neighbors and especially small children. And he was loved by everybody who knew him. He was taken from us by very aggressive and deadly bladder cancer. Chemotherapy gave him extra five months of good, happy life but at the end cancer won. We are so sad, the house feels empty, and I constantly see him in every corner of our house. He will live in our hearts and memory forever.MJ HuszczIrvine, CaliforniaDecember 29, 2015
12/24/2005 - 12/27/2015Our precious Bella went home yesterday to be with the many family members we have lost over the past few years. One in particular was my husband who loved to play ball with her every day. We will miss her but know that she is playing ball with him and is filled with joy because of being able to be rid of cancer forever. Bella, we will forever love you and your wonderful warm and loving personality. We are grateful that God directed you to our home and let us share life with you for awhile. He never makes any mistakes. You were meant to be with us!Jan GilbertWest Chester, OhioDecember 28, 2015
3/31/1995 - 12/4/2015In loving memory of Tigger. We miss you and still are getting used to coming home to a quiet house. Hope you and Fritz are having a great time catching up, chasing each other up and down the stairs, and enjoying endless treats on the other side of the rainbow bridge. Until we meet again......Teresa HickamSt. Louis, MissouriDecember 28, 2015
3/10/2015 - 12/14/2015Diesel was the life of our family in so many ways! He brought so much joy, laughter, and yes frustration at times (in all of his hardheaded English bulldog ways) to us. He was even the talk of the neighborhood, everyone knew and loved Diesel!

When we knew it was time to say goodbye to Diesel, and we knew he was wearing weary, we wanted the very best for him and wanted him to spend his final minutes in the comfort of his home in his bed. Lap of Love and Dr Manetta made that possible.
Dr. Manetta was the most compassionate, caring and genuine Vet. She treated us with such respect and understood our love for Diesel; she explained everything that would take place when we were ready.She was truly an angel and just what Dennis and needed at this time.

The entire staff at Lap of Love was responsive and understanding of our grief. We appreciate Laurie and Christina's emails; especially the article you included in your email. and then your follow-up.

Dr. Manetta left us with a special rememberance of Diesel- his paw print, which we will always treasure.

I highly recommend "Lap of Love" when the time comes for you and your beloved pet!

Thank you for the card and follow-up emails!
Hope you all have a very Happy New Year!

11/3/2001 - 12/23/2015Fee, originally named FiFi, came to us as an adult cat sitting in her carrier waiting to be adopted, and then shared her life with us for the next 15 years. Unsure, but willing to give us a chance, she came to be the most loving and tolerant of cats we have ever known. A communicative cat, her variety of meows would simply say hello, I see you, or let us know when it was time to wake up, eat, or just sit on the sofa for TV watching and cuddling. Her rumbling purrs and relaxed body postures always reminded us that we were doing the right thing. To say that she had us well trained would be an understatement, but we were willing servants to our sweetheart.
In her later months, the ravages of old age and cancer finally took their toll. We put her to rest on December 23, 2015, and will forever cherish the memories of our soft, sweet and loving tabby.
