Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
1/21/2006 - 1/10/2020Opie was our baby, our son, our protector and our furnace when we were cold. He had a big personality and expressions on his face that would make us all laugh. He was mama's companion and shadow wherever she went. He loved to eat which eventually led to diabetes :( BUT he took his shots of insulin bravely everyday. As a true Beagle he would chase everything including deer! When he was just a puppy he found a den of bunnies under the playhouse so he decided to crawl under there as well. That was a terrifying experience because we weren't sure how to get him out but eventually he surfaced. He loved to escape the yard and run and run and run forcing poor mama to run after him as fast as she could with her short legs. As he got older his escapes turned into slow walks that would lead him back home eventually. He had a bed in practically every room but his favorite spot was under the kitchen counter where he would roll and wrap his heated blanket up. He loved to fluff his beds and he loved his heated blankets straight out of the dryer every morning. He loved to howl with the fire trucks as well as when mama sat at the piano and sang though the best was the 1:00 Tornado test. He howled through the hole thing every Saturday. His fur was unlike other Beagles. His was downy soft, not brittle, right to the end. This was something that everyone commented on. He was just so soft. Opie even had a special bark that was kind of like a secret code. I knew when he wanted to go outside. His bark was short and deep. He always knew what time Breakfast and dinner was without wearing a watch.When his cancer arrived he still acted as though it was nothing. Always full of love and a thousand kisses for everyone. Never a peep to let us know that he was in pain. We thought he would win the battle but he could go on no more. He will always be my "furry child ", my little Oootah, that's what I called him. Opie will always be with me. I'm sure of thatLaura CerritoBloomfield Hills, MichiganJanuary 12, 2020
4/14/2004We miss you so much already. You were so special! I feel it’s only once in a lifetime that we are honored to parent such a great cat! We could not have loved you more than we did. Life won’t be the same with that empty bowl and empty bed. We hope that we get to see you again.Angela DurandHouston, TexasJanuary 11, 2020
12/8/2006 - 1/8/2020Kaysie you were the best girl. So smart and loving, not once have I ever heard a growl or complaint from you despite all the struggles you have had to go through over the years. You always kept your brothers safe by watching over them and never leaving their sides whenever they were around. You comforted me through many ups and downs too. I can never thank you for all the joy and peace you brought to our family.
Yesterday was one of the hardest days I have ever had to go through. You are a tough girl and I could see how tired you were and we were missing you even before you were gone. You have taken a part of our hearts with you on your next adventure and while you are missed so very much now, you will never be forgotten. You are forever a part of our family history and stories of you will be told to all who will listen. We Love you, Our Sweet Kaysie Girl.

4/23/2007 - 1/10/2020Hemi was the most amazing, loving, compassionate dog ever! Which is what lead him to be a great firehouse dog. His love touched so many people. Whether it was the brothers and sisters in the firehouse or just random strangers. He helped many people cope with illness or through a grieving process. He also cared for us so much when he had finally reached the final point where he couldn’t do it anymore, he went with a smile on his face that I can never forget even if I wanted to. I know his memory will live on in all of the people that he affected and helped.
All of this we learned after his passing, that’s when people really came out of the woodwork to give my wife and I their condolences. They also offered their condolences to the firefighters as well. In his final resting place will be a Maltese cross and his badge, which will never be worn again, it has been retired. So when you pass a fire station think of him sitting outside scanning people who walk by for treats!

Thank you so much Hemi for the easy pal, we’ve got it from here...

11/7/2005Dear Snickers,
Thank you for being such an amazing friend to me for so many years. You were by my side through so many times. I know the last few years, I wasn’t able to give you the time I used to, but the kids sure do love you. You are missed so much. My heart is broken. I hope we meet again, sweet girl.

3/15/2007 - 1/10/2020The house is so empty without the clicking of nails on the floor, without you snoring at night right beside me and without our "talks". You were always the first "child" to the table when I called everyone for dinner and the first in bed when I said it was time for sleep. You were the best dog our family could have ever asked for in life. We miss you so much.Jennifer King KingLutz, FloridaJanuary 11, 2020

3/9/2014 - 1/9/2020Fishy,

This house is so empty without you. I’ll miss you, my little work from home buddy. The kids will miss you even more. Thank you for being ours, even if it wasn’t for as long as we all had hoped or expected. Thanks for hanging out with us. You are irreplaceable and we will never forget you.

1/1/2005 - 12/4/2019Marley was the best friend I could ever have. He came to me at a year and a half old, and left me at fifteen and a half years old. He was rambunctious, always wanted to be the center of attention, even if it meant biting a possible intruder. He loved me when I was mad at him, he watched over my child when I was not feeling well, and he understood the rules of the house and of that around him. His sister still mourns with me, and his human charge, my son asks about him daily. Thank you for allowing me to put him to rest at home.Amanda LoveNashville, TennesseeJanuary 10, 2020
