Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Sookie
6/7/2008 - 2/21/2017Sookie,
Thanks for coming into our lives and teaching us all about unconditional love. You gave us so much love and I hope you felt all our love in return. You will always be missed and thought of with thanksgiving. You were a good dog (almost all of the time). Life won't be the same without you for quite some time. While the pain in our hearts will subside, you will forever be thought of with love and affection. Say hello to Alley and Max, my dad and all the others that went before you. We'll be together again one day and you can pester me about taking you for a walk. And, of course, I will. Gladly.

Teddy Bear
2/15/2008 - 2/17/2017Today we held you one last time, kissed your head and rubbed your back and said good-bye…

“Today I knew just how much I was loved as I lay in your arms accepting all your kisses and heard your voices saying it was okay…it was now time for me to close my eyes and slip away to a place where I could run and play.”

Our sweet, sweet Teddy Bear who was so loved is now resting in peace. No more tumor growing that makes him sick, no more pain, no more stumbling….he is now healed and whole; running and keeping watch for any squirrels who have somehow slipped into Heaven! Trust me when I say he will make sure they don’t stay long and Heaven is squirrel free!!

Sienna
4/5/2005 - 2/20/2017Last evening, Pati and I had to make a tough decision to help our sweet cat Sienna through a difficult step in her journey. She was struggling to breath, and after many diagnostic tests and attempts at a remedy, we had to help her find peace.
From the moment we are all born, we know with certainty that we each will have a moment where we exit this world. Pati and I pay attention to events in our lives and the world in general, and we try to learn or extract something positive from a lot of what we see. Today, as a tribute to Sienna, I am going to share two important truths about life that she frequently reminded us.

1) Time is the most valuable resource.

With our high intellect, humans find themselves in a complex world and can forget the simplest, most important aspects of life. When we opened the front door to our house, Sienna was waiting to greet us. Regardless of the time of day or how long we had been gone, when that door opened we received an enthusiastic and sincere greeting. She understood that the best type of time is quality time with people you love.

2) Love Perfectly.

Sienna loved us fully. She reminds us to appreciate every quality about someone because those qualities shape their overall identity. Sienna, and I suspect many of the pets in this world, see right through the flaws because they love fully. As people, this likely starts by loving ourselves. When we accomplish this then we can fully love other people in our lives. Appreciate the amazing things and enjoy the unique quirks both in yourself and those around you.
You won't see me posting too often on Facebook, but I wanted to share this tribute to Sienna on behalf of our family. If those of you reading this catch yourselves straying from the two points above, then take a moment to remind yourselves. Do it today for Sienna and do it moving forward for those around you. We love you Sienna.

Munchkin
2/13/2002 - 2/19/2017Munchkin we miss you. We miss your spinning tail too fast for cameras to catch and your sweet, pet me now please leaning.

You had some sad days at the end, but I think you know how much we loved you that we let you go when you said it was time.

Run free and find Doozie to show you the best sun puddles to sleep in. We are heartbroken. We never wanted to let you go.

Princess/little Prin
10/15/2009 - 2/10/2017AIDS kitties can live a long time. Don't pass them by. They will provide you with years of joy, as mine did for me. Princess was truly the light of my life.Anita LovittDelray Beach, FloridaFebruary 20, 2017
Gabbi
4/18/2003 - 2/17/2017The house seems so quiet and I catch myself listening for the bell on your collar. Wanting to reach down to scruff your shaggy ears and gently rub your soft little paws. For 14 years you filled my life with love and silly antics, you had a courage and strength unlike any puppy I have ever known. I mourn your loss but somehow find peace knowing that you are no longer in pain and can finally rest. You are always in my heart and entwined in a piece of my life.Angie LogsdonCharlotte, North CarolinaFebruary 19, 2017
Cyrus
2/14/2001 - 2/16/2017Our dog Cyrus always caught people's eye, with his bassett build, his terrier face, his thick white coat and his black eye spot. "What kind of dog is that?" they asked. "The best kind," we should have said. Cyrus was attentive to all of us, a wonderful family dog. He loved us, and loved our children, and loved our grandchildren as they came along. We were sad to lose you, Cyrus. Our house is too quiet without you. Fifteen years we had together, and they were good years.

Have a good time, sweet dog, as you run and play. You deserve to feel young again.

Thank you, Lap of Love and Dr. Nil for helping us do this lovingly for Cyrus.

Forest
9/18/2004 - 2/16/2017Forest, I strongly believe that you were created for me as a part of me. We connected since the very first moment and I was there till your last moment. You always made everyone who got to meet you, feel good. Your love for the human race without any prejudice for age, sex or race made you a cat that will be remembered and is making me feel that I succeeded of giving you the best cat life ever and having you always surrounded with love. I'm really missing you.Steve DambrosioLas Vegas, NevadaFebruary 19, 2017
Baron Pope
2/9/1999 - 2/18/2017His bowls will sit there empty,
But I'll leave them in their place.
No more will water drip down
From his thirsty, furry face.
There'll be no one to bark
When the planes fly high
It's going to be one of those moments
When I'm sure I'll want to cry.
But I know the day will come,
When my tears will finally fade,
And I'll focus on the good times,
and all the fetch we played.
So until the day that we
Can be together once again,
I'll keep your memory alive
'Til we meet in Heaven, my friend.
