Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
1/14/1999 - 3/22/2016This dog meant the world to me. She always had the most energy, always got into everything and could jump really high for no other reason than to terrorize birds, squirrels or to jump on the table to steal a sandwich. I remember the day we brought her home from West Virginia and how she became part of the family very quickly. 16 years is a long life for a dog and I'm happy she got to live it out with us. Bye Birdie I will miss you.

Love, Christopher

& Mommy

3/30/2016In memory of my beloved Daisy...

You entered my life only 7 years ago and it was like a part of my soul had been made complete. I would tell people you were my rescue dog, but now I realize that it was you that rescued me. You loved me with loyalty and unconditional faith and brought me immeasurable joy and happiness even during the saddest times of my life. When I would come home and call out your name, you’d run to me as fast as your little body would allow. Then with all your might, leap into my open arms and smother me with kisses and snorts of excitement. Oh Daisy, how I will miss your loving “welcome home mommy, I missed you so much today!”

Your failing heart began draining the life out of you much too soon, but you saved up enough strength to stay and love me for just a few more days- for that I will forever be grateful. Now the broken heart is my own, but I gladly endure the pain as it was the trade I made for you to find peace and rest. My heart aches to just hold you once more, to leave one more lipstick kiss on the top of your head, to blow one more raspberry on your pink tummy, to see your wookie wagging as you trot around in the yard, to look into your big brown eyes, to watch you sunbathe in the backyard, to receive just one more of your doggie kisses! I don't know how I am going to get along without you. I would give anything to have you here to lick my tears away.

I could never come close to repaying the love and joy you brought us. Our lives are going to be so lonely without you and the house so quiet. I’ll miss the sound of your little feet tip-tapping down the hall, your soft snore when you slept, your cute little whimper when you got excited, your warm little body under the covers snuggling up against me when we slept. Grandma will miss stroking your little apple-head and watching the tricks you’d play on your sister so you could steal her treats. Maggie still watches out for you to make sure you haven’t learned about her newest hiding places! And oh how much she would like to lick your face just once more! We will forever miss you Muffin, Day-Day, Daisy-Duke, Wig-Wag, Sissy!

I am honored that your love and life was entrusted to me, and I will cherish that love forever! Save me a spot in heaven, my sweet girl. I’ll call out to you when I arrive, and I'll catch you when run and leap into my open arms once again!

All my love forever, Mommy

2/6/2007 - 3/29/2016I have always cried when reading the poem, "Rainbow Bridge" and with my heart torn apart because My Fiona left too soon the only comfort is my hope that as soon as she got there she picked up the first tennis ball she found and she is waiting for me Her Momma to come and throw it for her and tell her as I always did with each catch, "You are such a good catcher"!Susan HawthorneMullica Hill, New JerseyMarch 31, 2016
5/25/1996 - 3/28/2016R.I.P. Iceman was born on May 25, 1996 in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe.
He passed away quietly March 28, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, United States, just short of his 20th birthday.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

3/28/2002 - 3/29/2016My Snowflake "Snowie" Alyssa Peto was the best member of the family we could have asked for. She had this way of listening, even when she could hear no more, and whenever I was sad, she comforted me by licking away my tears. I would do anything to have her here to lick my tears away right now. Snowie was the best friend, sister, sidekick, sleepover/cuddle buddy that I could have ever imagined having. She was so much more than a dog and I will forever honor her the way she deserves. I pray that she is resting peacefully in heaven and feels no pain from the cancer and old age that ended her life.

"If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever."

Please watch over me now and take away my pain. I need you to help me get through this. I love you forever.

Rest peacefully my baby girl and enjoy heaven.

Your sister and friend,

Suzy Q
3/19/2016Suzy Q came bounding into our lives over 13 years ago on a Saturday - and so it was fitting that through the compassionate care of Dr. Tiffany with Lap of Love that we were able to hold and kiss her goodbye in our home this past Saturday.
Suzy's spirit defies definition! During her first week with us she had us trained and never let us forget who was in charge! She gave us lessons in love over and over - a love that would not ( and still won't) let us go. Her devotion - and the unbridled joy with which she dispensed it - was endless.
Suzy dedicated her life to providing our family with the most comforting and rewarding companionship imaginable. She will remain in our hearts until that time when we will be able to hold her again as she races across that Rainbow Bridge.
Oh Suzy Q - baby we love you - Suzy Q!

8/15/1994 - 3/25/2016Pembrook, we miss you so much. Even with seven other rescues in the house there is a noticeable void. For over 20 years you welcomed numerous animals into our home. We hope you are running and playing now just as you were when you were young and healthy and reunited with all your fury friends that went before you. We will be waiting for the day to meet you at the Rainbow Bridge.Edward VahlinNeptune Beach, FloridaMarch 29, 2016

5/18/2007 - 3/26/2016Kitty, you were the most beautiful and loving cat I could have ever asked for. You were always so happy to see us come home and you never failed to greet us at the door, even when it started to get too hard for you. You brought a warm precense to our home that is going to be missed very much. Thank you for being my best friend and for never leaving my side through all the good and bad times. My only prayer is that you know how much joy and love you gave us everyday. I know you are in a much better place where you can get all the belly rubs and treats you can ask for. We love you sweet girl. Until we meet again you will be forever be in my heart.Crystal MillerMaitland, FloridaMarch 27, 2016
