Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Puppy
10/1/1998 - 6/27/2014We will love you always, Puppy. You've been a member of this family all of Allie's life and much of ours. We will miss you greatly but glad that you were able to pass with dignity.Agnes NortonEdgefield, South CarolinaOctober 14, 2014
Delilah
8/3/1995 - 10/7/2014Delilah was a very special girl. She came to us in the winter of 1995-1996 with 4 others in her adopted feral family; she was the "second aunt twice removed,"(!) She lived with Bob White, our flame-point Siamese, sisters Arielle and Jasmine, and their brother Ian. They were rescued from a dumpster and re-located to our house, and they all received spay/neuter, lots of love, and needed vet care. Because of her rescue, we are not sure of the exact date of her birth, but think she was about 6 months old when we got her.

She stood faithfully by as each of the members of her family became ill and passed away, and remained 2-1/2 years after Ian, the last one before her, passed away. I do not think she was lonely, though, because I think the spirits of her adopted brothers and sisters visited her, and I felt their spirits at her passing.

Delilah loved to catch strings under tissue paper, and could detect the slightest movement and pounce on it. The others would play, then would eventually stand back to admire her speed. She let us handle her until the others passed on; after that she was too shy. But she always loved her treats, and would eat them out of George's hand. She was well aware of the time, and she stood meowing on her crate each morning at feeding time. If I was a bit late with her evening feeding, I received a proper scolding!

Bailey
8/11/2002 - 10/3/2014It was heartbreaking, but putting Bailey to sleep at home, under the tree that he chased all the squirrels away at, with the wind blowing, birds singing, and with the sun shining in our back yard, gave me great comfort. It allowed me to give him the last, biggest hug he would ever get again, and let me hold his paw as he passed over, knowing that he was loved greatly and one of the most precious gems in my life.

Elmo
12/6/1998 - 10/6/2014My ever-loving best friend and companion, from the moment we met in a South Philadelphia animal refuge in 1999, to our parting, you have been the most loved and loving baby anyone could ever have in their life.

We will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.Gail PolandJacksonville, FloridaOctober 11, 2014
Hunny
12/1/1996 - 10/3/2014My little love. … .. eighteen years seems a lifetime to spend with a four-legged fur baby. A little shy and timid during the early years, but as she grew older her confidence and spunk shined bright. She would trot, head held high, with a prance to her step like a prize winning show dog. Her light was so bright people would stop just to meet her and she assumed that was her purpose – to simply brighten their day. There wasn’t a kiss she wouldn’t give or a belly rub she didn’t insist on having. As a therapy dog, she had an uncanny way to break through barriers and receive affection from the elderly, terminally ill or disabled, some of who had not spoken or showed emotion in a long time. She brought smiles and love to their hearts. We have had many adventures together. As she grew older I knew every day spent with her was a gift. She was my sunshine on a dark day and a source of endless joy. I am eternally grateful she chose me by placing her head on my shoulder one rainy day at a shelter many years ago. Rest peacefully now Hunny and run, run, run forever like you loved to do!Paula CullenTewkbury, MassachusettsOctober 10, 2014
Ranger
10/4/1999 - 10/5/2014Ray Ray - Our faithful friend for almost 15 years, we miss you! All the tennis balls you chased, all the hula hoops you jumped through, all your crazy antics! You were Desi's best friend, a cat lover and a good big brother to Hope and Jazi. We'll miss you every day, but we're glad you are able to "run, run, run," jump, swim, chase squirrels again. We'll see your furry face and fluffy tail on the other side of the bridge - in the meantime, have fun with Desi. Love, Julie and RichJulie SchechterOrchard Park, New YorkOctober 10, 2014
Haley Norcia
10/10/2000 - 9/8/2014Haley- you were my first pet and my first best friend. You will never be able to be replaced. I will miss every moment spent with you. I will miss the times you would jump on my face to wake me up for school when I was young, and dress you up in my bikinis and pajamas. I know you are at peace. You were an angel sent from heaven that provided our family with so much love.Jaime NoricaFletcher, North CarolinaOctober 10, 2014
Sammie
7/15/1999 - 9/25/2014Sammie was a Loyal and Loving Friend, who bounded into our lives full of puppy energy and left his little paw prints all over our hearts. After years and years of adventures and walking thousands of miles together, we sent him across the Rainbow Bridge with lots of extra kisses for everyone he met on the other side.

Like most Shiba Inus, he could be reserved with the people we encountered -- and he wasn't much of a cuddler -- but every time he looked at us, he was hugging us with his eyes. Sammie lives on in a Special Place in our hearts.
