Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Max Walker
10/10/2005 - 11/13/2015Max, you were not "just a dog" you were a 4 legged human, our baby. The love you showed us, has spoiled us. Your intelligence, gentle demeanor, and pure devotion is what we will carry with us forever. From the moment you came to us, we knew we were lucky to have you. Even with your health issues, from the moment you broke your leg at 7 months old, to the day you left us, 10 years later, you never complained. You just wanted us to love you, that's all you ever asked. And it was easy to do and we were happy to provide all the love you wanted. We are so heartbroken over losing you. The house is too quiet. There's nobody to greet me at the door, when I come home from a long day. There's nobody laying at our feet, just needing to touch us. No big brown eyes to look up at us, before going to sleep. I will miss the days when you wanted something, and I would say "say please" and you would raise your paw. Our conversations where you would tilt your head as you listened intently. To say you were the greatest there ever was, is an understatement. Everyone should be as lucky as we were. You were a one in a million baby. I cleaned the family room today, around your bed and found the bones you "buried" under the corner of the couch. My heart just ached. I will miss you forever my dear, sweet Max. Until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge, life will never be the same. You are loved...forever and always.Brian and Cindi WalkerSterling Heights, MichiganNovember 15, 2015
11/12/2015We remember the day that we drove out to the farm in Tennessee to bring you home. You had a very unique color, adorable spots and a birth defect that instantly attracted us to you. For twelve and a half years you provided our home with many memories and although you had your “quirky” ways you were a very special part of our family and greatly loved. To all of us, you were a constant companion and loyal friend. Although we were not the perfect pet family, know that you will always be a part of our family and that something will be missing now that you are no longer with us.
You were a sweet dog who we could always count on to snuggle with whether it would be to watch Netflix or read books. You were our first love and you will never be forgotten.
You gave us all you had. Whether it was being there when someone needed a friend or simply cuddling up close when it was cold, we could always count on you to be there for us. Although you had some unconventional hobbies, like licking the water out of the dishwasher or bringing dirty socks into the living room for everyone to see, that is what made you special and will be one of the things we will miss the most. You got the most out of your short time here with us, and we will be forever thankful for everything you gave us. Our home will always be somehow empty without the click clack of your nails on the hardwoods or your constant presence beneath our feet in the ever crowded kitchen. You will be missed but never forgotten. There will always be an empty spot on the couch for you.

10/27/2006 - 10/30/2015My sweet,sweet Bella. My Belly, my Bells and now my Angel dog. It's been 2 weeks since you left and I miss you each and every day. You were my sunshine, my lovey,my comfort and my delight. My world is so empty without you. The 8 1/2 years I had you went by way too fast. You were a small dog with a huge heart who wanted nothing more than to love and be loved. And you were, more than you'll ever know. I pray that we one day we will be together again and until that day, you are forever in my heart,little one.Liz SicilianoTroy, MichiganNovember 13, 2015
4/11/2002 - 11/11/2015We remember the first day We got you, 6/16/2002 Father's Day. You rolled over the threshold of the garage door of the home we adopted you from. You ran up to me, sat on my feet and looked right into my eyes. I knew then you were meant to be mine. Emmitt We will cherish the 13 years and 7 months we had together!! You made both of your daddies very happy! You touched MANY hearts. We have done so much as a family, the day we adopted Macy your sister, you accepted her with the big smile you ALWAYS had. You melted a lot of hearts with that smile! You always watched over us, even when we weren't watching out for ourselves. We will miss the licks to wake us up, when nap time was over, or to let us know you loved us and you were happy. We hope you enjoyed your time with us just as much as we enjoyed having you with us! We will always love you, our big boy, you made your dads very proud! We LOVE and miss you deeply!!! We will all be together soon enough buddy!Chris & Jeremy Klubek-WillBuffalo, New YorkNovember 12, 2015

Dear friend and companion, Kaedo

I never do care for goodbyes, but yesterday was particularly hard. I am glad for you that you no longer have to deal with pain, or anxiety-wondering every time I left the house if that was a forever goodbye.
I’m glad you no longer have to fret about guarding us and the house every time someone happened to come to the door. I’m glad you don’t have to worry about something coming through the cat door other than one of your brother or sisters., or keeping the pool man on his toes.

Thank you, little buddy, for being a true friend for all the time you were here with us. I will never hear an emergency siren or cook bacon or sing, “only you”, without you coming to mind. There’s plenty more, but I won’t babble on. I’m hoping the pinch I feel in my heart right now will lighten with time. I guess I’ve lived long enough to know it will lighten, but will never go away.

I have to be honest; I always wished you hadn’t been ‘fixed’ when you were in the shelter system, but I do understand why they must make such policies. I just wish there was a way to have you back again. We humans know you’re not going to live as long as we do, but I appreciate the extra effort on your part to stick around as long as you did.

Well, I won’t say goodbye again. Some people might get upset with me for drawing a parallel between you and the many veterans that have kept our country safe. I, too, am a Veteran, but I wanted to take this moment to Thank You for your service to this family! Love you always,

11/7/2015Punkin Hazel was a rescue from Hazel Park MI, one of the best mouse catchers, had the softest fur, very affectionate, but would stand her ground to any threats.
She especially used to love relaxing in front of the fire during those cold winter days.

8/2/2015 - 11/10/2015I will see you again my sweet angel Daisy. Mommy loves you more than words could ever describe. You were my baby, angel, and savior. I will forever be in your debt. Go with love, peace, and comfort. Til' we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge!

"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends, so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

2/1/2005 - 11/10/2015There are no words that can express how much I miss you Jessie. Only tears for now.

I can remember the first time I ever saw you, picking you up at the Cary PD. Some nice officers had rescued you off the streets. You were so little and your fur was terribly matted. They clipped you the best they could so you would be more comfortable and waited for you to be claimed. When no owner came, the called a rescue group who then referred them to me to foster you. You came running out of the kennel area and greeted me sweetly. I named you Jessie on our car ride home. Once we were home, you were cautious. We had two older shih tzus and you kept your distance for a few days, sitting in the foyer and just observing the dynamics of our household. But very soon, you warmed up and became our "new baby". You and i bonded very quickly and even as I tried to stay strong and introduced you to numerous potential adopters, you would have none of it. You had already picked me. You were a sassy girl and a great communicator. We always new what you wanted. We look back on the decision to adopt you as the smartest decision we've ever made.

Nine years later you began fainting frequently and the doctors told me you had the most severe case of pulmonary hypertension they had ever seen. We said good-bye to you yesterday, you were declining quickly and clearly suffering. And now we are suffering. However no matter how much we are crying and missing you, we wouldn't trade a second of the nine years we had with you. I have never had a bond as strong with any pet before as I had with you. I will miss all the cuddles, the playing, the wonderful long walks, how you marked everything in your neighborhood and kicked up your feet extra hard for emphasis, having you with us at the beach, coming home to your always sweet greeting, rocking on the back porch, sitting in the sunshine....and you keeping my feet warm at night. I love you forever.
