Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
2/11/2016On February 12, 2016, the best friend of my entire life was laid to rest with the assistance of Dr. Annie and the Lap of Love organization. Needless to say, I still miss her terribly... Maggie was, without a doubt, the best dog I have ever raised! Her unconditional love and loyalty knew no bounds! She was my heart and soul, as well as a faithful companion and protector. Maggie knew I had a serious medical condition long before I did! The minute she detected it, she was never more than one foot away. Maggie was ten years, four months, and fifteen days old when she was sent to be with her two sisters. My heartbreak became their joy as they were finally united. I have the fond memory of them romping and enjoying each others' company. Maggie was special from the moment I laid eyes on her. That moment is forever deeply etched within my heart. She stood out among her siblings. Her shining black coat was the most gorgeous coat of any color I had ever seen on any canine. She was also the runt of the litter. (That little runt grew to be 70+ pounds!) The very second I picked her up, she was "the one"!
Maggie was a full-blooded black Labrador Retriever. She will always be missed and will always remain deep within my heart...

5/24/2002 - 3/21/2016Bailey will be remembered for being a bright spot in our lives. He lived to be almost 14 years old, and we take comfort in knowing he lived a good long life. We think he lived a better life than some humans :)Kelli FryeRaleigh, North CarolinaApril 4, 2016
10/1/1999 - 3/28/2016I found Buddy hanging upside down in a bush at a picnic. He was so sweet, a little worse for wear but nothing a visit to a vet wouldn't fix. i had never had a male cat before him. Buddy became my instant cuddle bug. To the dismay of my 2 females he immediately took over the bed. every night he came up and slept in my arms until I would fall asleep. For 16 years whenever I would touch him he would immediately purr. up to the very end of his life he was my cuddle bug.Susan BentleyMacomb, MichiganApril 4, 2016
10/31/1998 - 3/22/2016My sweet Simon came into my life when he was just a tiny kitten with the cutest pink nose and pink toes I have ever seen. For 18 years, he slept on my pillow and I would wake up to his handsome face. He would always jump up on everything and loved to look at the world from above. I used to say he was "gargoyling". :)

I miss him terribly, but I know he is in a better place, with plenty of catnip and laying in a warm sun spot.

He brought so much love to us and I am glad I had him for 18 years. I miss sharing my pillow with this handsome boy and will love him forever.

3/6/2007 - 4/2/2016His name was Azsha. Born on my patio door step, he was a little White Siamese mix in the middle four black kittens. I knew he was special so unique he had to have a unique name. I couldn't come up with one in the alphabet. So I covered the hole gamut A-Z. Hence the name Az -sha, and he truly was special. He was a happy kitty who grew up to a full 16lbs. A smart and loveable boy that followed me everywhere. But 9 years just wasn't long enough. I will always love you Azsha, is the last thing he heard as he fell into his eternal sleep last Sunday. My heart is empty.John ErbertLas Vegas, NevadaApril 4, 2016
11/1/2001 - 4/2/2016Ginger was the sweetest dog. She liked playing games with us by running around outside and playing 'chase me' She was very gentle dog and loved to be loved on. She gave all of us great joy. Ginger came to us in November, 2001 to my grandson Nick. She was a puppy and a delight for Nick. She was loved very much and will be missed tremendously.Julie CrifasiHarrisburg, North CarolinaApril 4, 2016
3/28/2000 - 3/31/2016My dear sweet Candy, thank you for being the greatest pet I could've ever asked for. Thank you for always greeting me at the door, thank you for all the "smiles" you gave us, thank you for being so weird, and letting me take pictures of it, but mostly thank you for being you. It's tough being without you. I slept with my room door closed for the first time in 16 years, and that's when I realized that you were truly gone.
I know you tried your hardest to stay with us, but it was your time to go. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. I love you my sweet baby, but in my heart you'll always remain.

9/12/2003 - 3/29/2016Elizabeth was the 'best' of friends.
She helped me through the death of my husband, my cancer, my spinal fusion, and finally the move of my grandsons across the country. When my husband passed, it broke my heart. When Elizabeth left, the pieces crumbled. She took a huge piece of my heart. I hope she's okay.
Here's a poem that comforts me with her passing.

It came to me that every time I lose a dog,
they take a piece of my heart with them,
and every new dog who comes into my life,
gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough,
all the components of my heart will be dog,
And I will become as generous,
and loving, as they are.

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
