Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Max
8/7/2006 - 2/26/2017Max was magnificent, regal, and above all gentle. He was the very best of friends. Being with him was a soothing protective balm for our hearts. He taught us how to celebrate life's most important lessons; love without limits, forgive readily, stay together as a group, always be ready to go, eat, play, take naps, and protect your loved ones while inviting new friends to join the pack. We miss him beyond measure and reckoning but I am grateful for being able to feel the purity and immensity of this pain because that is the purity and immensity of our love. Love never really dies. It is the best of creation and the best thing we can do for each other. Max was an expert at this creation. All my life I will spend trying to live up to a fraction of what he knew how to do intuitively. Nothing really separates us but the temporary boundaries of this flesh and the arbitrary and illusory limits of ideas of time and space. We will be with you again Max and we are so grateful for every tenderness and joy you gave us with your magnificent and beautiful presence. You are the absolute best. We will love you always and forever.

In Blackwater Woods
by Mary Oliver

Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars

of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,

the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away over
the blue shoulders

of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
name is, is

nameless now.
Every year
everything
I have ever learned

in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side

is salvation,
whose meaning
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

Belle
2/13/2007 - 2/17/2017Sweet Jelly Belly, you were such a good dog! Beautiful and full of life. Friendly too all people! I miss so very much taking you on your walks that you enjoyed so much! You are missed by us all!Margaret CrowderGainesville, VirginiaFebruary 27, 2017
Shadow
4/4/2012 - 2/26/2017Shadow,
You gave our family a good and happy 5 years. Ethan said that he misses you, and says that if we get another husky, he will name him shadow in your memory. He loves you buddy.
Things will be different without you here. Your fur brother misses you very badly too. He keeps looking and waiting for you to come back, and looked at me funny when we went for our "walkies" last night without you.

It's a strange not seeing you run to the fence wagging that tail when I pull into the driveway and not see you doing your twirls when I opened the door, while getting ready to go walk or outside . I know there will be a void for sometimes to come, but nothing compares to the memories you gave us while you were with us. I didn't save you, you saved me! Until we meet again Shadow man!

Love you always,
Dad

Lilah
10/18/2004 - 2/24/2017Lilah was more than a dog, she was an intelligent, loving spirit that anyone who met her felt immediately. She was the light of our lives and will forever be missed. No dog will ever compare to her.Taressa GeorgeClermont, FloridaFebruary 27, 2017
Anslie
10/18/2014 - 2/20/2017We love & miss you so much Ans man. Your big brother Milo kitty loves & misses you too. We know now that the best thing for you was to let you go be with God. Now you can run around & you are at peace. You were here just a short time on earth. You must have been tormented in your mind. You did not mean to bite us. You didn't realize what you were doing. We forgive you. You passed peacefully & looked so beautiful. I know all the children in heaven can hug & kiss you now. You are getting all the love that I wanted to lavish on you. We will miss all the fun times & laughter that you gave us chasing Milo around. You were so good with him & let him roll around in your fur & bite your toes. Milo has been sleeping on the quilt they put over you that day you went to heaven. He misses you so. You are a beautiful fur angel now. You had such a regal look about you when you walked down the street. You walked like grandpa but were a cutie. Everyone who saw you smiled. I will miss the smelling your feet. It smelled like Fritos. You gave us lots of joy. I will miss the galloping feet of you chasing Milo around. Milo was your doll baby. You greeted John, your papa every day he came in. So cute, you would wash his head. We will always lovingly remember you & all the good times. I loved seeing you run. You looked like you were hobbling when you walked so cute. Big ball of fluff you would lay on your back & snore like crazy. I remember hearing you down the hallway at night & making noises to get you to stop as it was so loud. I couldn't sleep. Loved how you laid like a frog with you back legs out behind you.
We miss you & love you but we know it was the best for you to be free of your demons. You are in God's loving arms. Please know that we did the best we could. Never forget you big guy. You were a good boy. The best you knew how to be. I know you are running around chasing squirrels & playing with Mugsy, Sarge, Kadie & Sabrina.

Valentine
11/1/1998 - 2/18/2017Sweet Valentine,
We love and miss you more then we could have ever imagined. Every day we have felt a huge void with you gone.
We miss your snuggles at night when you would lay in between us or bat at the covers to let you under. Sawyer especially misses you snuggling with him when he would go to bed each night. We miss hearing you thump up the stairs to get to the bed. When the sun shines in the entryway, where you'd love to lay, I still see you....
We miss hearing your sixth claw tap against the floor when you'd walk. We miss your cute little face and your princess eyelashes. We miss you getting jealous when we'd give some attention to your brother Jimmy. We miss all your cute sounds...your purrs...
We miss how you'd let us hold you like a baby and how you'd stroke our faces. Every minute has been difficult since you got your angel wings. I've cried and cried. But in the end, "It's better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all..."
You were so loved....

Scout
2/24/2017In memory of Scout...

You were the best roommate I could ever have. Eating junk food will never be the same without you. And even though you didn't make it to 18, we sure did put in a good effort. I'm glad you got to cross the Rainbow bridge on a beautiful day, exactly where you wanted to be and how I wanted you to be.

After all, a deal's a deal. Until we meet again, lady.

10/10/2003 - 2/20/2017Ozzie you are missed beyond word can explain. However, I pray that you are running around doing your "burn outs" , sniffing & peeing where ever you want and staying outside as long as you want! I miss you and love you ! mom xoxoDonna BaerBirdsboro, PennsylvaniaFebruary 24, 2017
Ruby
3/12/2006 - 2/19/2017Ruby My Love,
Its been only a short while since my sweet girl was sent to heaven. Although it was the right thing to do, my heart is broken.
Through out our lives together, she was a very special girl for me. My life has been filled with many, many pets, and they've all had a special place in my heart, and when it was time for them to go to Heaven I knew I would be with them again someday. With Ruby, we had more of a special bond, and through out the last few months with her, knowing the day would come, I would tell her about Heaven, and seeing all her beloved siblings and how she would be so happy playing with them, enjoying her eternal life there. I would tell her that I hope she would be the one "at the gate of Heaven" to be there to open it up for me!
God Bless her, and someday we will be reunited for eternity..

Pookie
7/5/1997 - 12/30/2016I miss you every moment, my baby girl. You were that one in a million pet that captured and connected with my heart and soul. Thank you for defying all medical odds for 7 years in the fight against kidney disease and making it to an amazing 19.5 years old. Thank you for all the nuzzles, head bumps, snuggles, cuddles and somehow knowing how to pat away the tears with your paw when I cried. Thank you for all the laughs, giggles, fun kitty games, and amazing feats of acrobatics that only a kitty can perform. Thank you for your feistiness, sassiness, and fearlessness. You will always be in my heart.Christine StephensonShelby Township, MichiganFebruary 22, 2017
