Pet Memorials
Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Desi
2/27/1999 - 12/27/2012I've waited quite a while to post this memorial. Desi passed in December 2012 and it's now February 2015. Today would have been his birthday. Desi was a one in a million little Papillon. I had the pleasure of sharing my life with Desi only for seven years because we adopted him when he was six years old, but we were truly best friends.
I wanted to post this today as a special tribute to him, to voice how much he is missed, thought of and loved.

Jem
8/12/2002 - 2/26/2015Our Mr. Jem. He was my boy. He was my buddy. He was my favorite little nitwit, spending countless hours chasing his tail or attacking the plastic rings off of milk bottles. He was also smart. He knew how door knobs worked but lacked the thumbs necessary to operate them. At times he behaved more like a dog than a cat. He was a good boy, notwithstanding the time he killed all my houseplants by pooping in them when he was a kitten. And, like his sister Scout, he loved people. He loved being fussed over and rubbed behind the ears. And we love him, and we will miss him so so much.Jason McMurtriePhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaFebruary 27, 2015
Pete
2/26/2015Pete touched so many hearts along his way. That was evident yesterday with how many of his friends (both 2 legged and 4 legged) that were with him yesterday as he left us to go to the Rainbow Bridge. Pete was without a doubt, the sweetest animal that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He truly loved us more than he loved himself. He was happy if we were happy. And if we werent happy, he would do whatever he could to make us smile. Unfortunately there will never be another Pete but he will live on in our hearts forever. He will never be forgotten and always missed.Dana RoseKnoxville, TennesseeFebruary 27, 2015
Europe Hansen
4/25/1995 - 2/19/2015Europe was tiny, fiesty and very independent. Living with Europe was always very much on her terms. She was very much a talker. I had no idea that this little creature would hang out and be my buddy for the next twenty years. She definitely had nine lives and she used all of them. The old girl had a good run. I really do miss her. Fight on tiny dancer!Trey HansenNew Orleans, LouisianaFebruary 27, 2015
Ziggy
11/28/2002 - 2/25/2015My Little Boy Ziggy,

These past 12 years have been so wonderful having you in my life. Since I picked you up when you were a kitten on January 28, 2003 I have been in love.

I loved your energy and charisma. I loved how you liked to drink water straight from the faucet. I loved how you would wait outside of the shower for me to turn it off so you could hop right in. I loved watching you run up and down the stairs when we lived in the townhouse. I loved the way you would greet me when I came home by tucking your head into your chest until you flopped on your back then stretched as you rolled from side to side. I loved your fuzzy belly. I loved the weight of you on my chest when you would join me in bed at night. I loved watching you look at the squirrels from the window. I loved your beautiful grey fur and green eyes.

We had many adventures and made many fantastic memories. When we meet again we will make many more.

I love you little boy,

Daddy

Hobbes
10/23/2000 - 2/24/2015Fourteen years ago we prayed for the perfect puppy to join our family. Each of us prayed for a different character trait; companion, protector, playmate, and the desire to honor the family. Hobbes embodied each of these characteristics perfectly. He was truly the pick of the litter. His sweet smile and gentle disposition greeted every guest with joy and grace. From sleeping under the table while camping with us to his starring role as Sandy in "Annie" he always did everything possible to please 'his people'. We'll miss his big brown eyes and joyful spirit. Rest in peace, we can't wait to play with you on the other side. Love, your family.Sharon GentryFederal Way, WashingtonFebruary 27, 2015
Rigby
2/25/1995 - 2/19/2015On a cold February evening in 1995 I drove to Yonkers, NY to adopted my new kitten, Rigby. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of that scared little kitten and how much unconditional love, joy, and happiness he has given me over the past 20 years. Not to mention, the many confidences and conversations we shared (oh yes, he would definitely voice his opinion and could be quite demanding, especially when it came to ice cubes in his water bowl).

Rigby, was an incredible presence in my life and the love I have for him shall never die. He was my belated Valentine and my lovey boy to the end. He experienced many life changing events with me and the hole in my heart named Rigby will always be there, but next to it will be all the wonderful memories. Of course, words can never express the loss and pain I feel, but he and I will always be bound together in love. And like that cold, February night in 1995, I lost my baby in Concord, NC on a cold February evening in 2015 and there will never be another like him.

Ozzie
Ozzie first blessed us on Jan 7, 2006, when we went to the store for cat food and came home with him. And he was a blessing and joy every day for 9 years. He loved his mama and daddy, purely and sweetly. We were always greeted with a tail wag or body wag and sometimes a grin. Friends were greeted with a welcoming woo-woo-woo. He loved being Mama’s baby and playing with Daddy, having breakfast with Mama and afterward watching the news with Daddy, and just being with us. He was an adventurous eater, liking most fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and of course, meats. Playtime was after dinner, and it was time to be a baby at bedtime or when he was nervous or at the doctor. He was usually intimidated by the cat, but in the living room, it was his room, and it was time to cat hunt. He always wanted to be with us, always at the side of Mama or Daddy. We were happy to have the household revolve around him. Even though his time with us was cut short, he valiantly fought diabetes and cancer to live, rarely showing he was sick. Ozzie was a sweet, gentle soul who is much loved and greatly missed. Dr. Sunday was able to help him when he just didn’t feel good anymore.Cindy TuttleAiken, South CarolinaFebruary 26, 2015
Shadow
2/18/2015A Time to Remember

They come into our lives for such a short time
A time we wouldn't trade not even for a dime
Then before you know it the years have flown by
And then all of the sudden we're saying good-bye

It wasn't that long ago we said our good-byes
We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes
Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
Into God's loving arm's; in heaven above

Over the days we've shed many tears
But the memories we have will live on for years
We feel your presence and we know that your near
You're keeping us safe and calming our fear

We think about memories from years past
When you were young and strong and ran so fast
We remember all the great times that we all had
How you always made us happy never made us mad

They were the best and happiest years we had
We'll always look back on them and never be sad
We look forward to the time we'll be together again
And we thank the Lord for such a great friend

Now you run and play up in Heaven above
Cradled in God's arms covered with his love
Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day
We come down thru the meadow to the bridge to stay

The love that you showed us we'll never forget
Because to us you're one very special pet
You're like a star in the dark of night
Always watching over us with the Lord's light

So now we take time to remember our best friend
Who will always be with us even to the end
We'll always remember you the way you were
One big lovable huggable pile of fur

Mande
12/5/2005 - 2/25/2015To my ROCK, my love, my heart. You will be missed so much my sweet boy. This morning I heard your wake up call. It was early but it was you, I know that call. Thank you for letting me know you are still around and I'm still needed. Thank you for taking care of me and making sure I was going to be alright in your silent suffering Mande. You are such a brave little boy. Hugs and kisses.Karen Maloneydorchester, MassachusettsFebruary 26, 2015
