Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Sophie
7/3/2003 - 5/17/2020On Sunday, May 17, we said "goodbye" to our baby girl, Sophie, who was a loving member of our family - our little pack - for nearly 17 years. Over the past year and half, Sophie's mobility had been progressively declining. Although she managed for quite a while with the help of medication, as well as a front and back sling, the past month was really tough for her. So, with her mom, dad, and younger brother, Spirit, by her side, Sophie peacefully crossed over the Rainbow Bridge - from her favorite spot by the Japanese maple tree in our yard.

Despite a number of conditions related to her advanced age, Sophie was like the Energizer bunny and adapted well - time and again - to various therapies and alternative means of living a happy and fulfilling life. Over the past 8 months, she continued to participate in family walks riding in her little wagon, which became known as Sophie's "chariot" - an appropriate means of transportation for our little princess.

Sophie will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we can't imagine what life will be like without her. Our one remaining wish is that she has been reunited with her beloved older brother, Jasper, and BFFs, Joe and Chuck. We know they will watch over her always - as they did here on earth.

Goodbye for now, baby girl. We will love and miss you forever.

Toby
1/7/2007 - 5/20/2020Toby, enough can't be said about Toby. He came to us at 7 1/2 months and left us to join his sister Lady across the Rainbow Bridge at 13, still fighting to hang in there for me, said Dr. Nil with Lap of Love. He leaves such an empty hole in my heart as he was always my sidekick on road trips. He loved visiting with the grandkids, he was a lover to everyone he came in contact with. He was responsible for bringing one of my besties and I together. And ironically, he shares his forever date plus one year with him, Jake, my friend Geri's hubby. Toby, you will always be my road trip warrior! You will be sorely missed and forever loved!Gail TurnquistHOLIDAY, FloridaMay 21, 2020
Truvy
2/7/2004 - 5/20/2020Truvy, aka FattyPants, SmoochyPants, HoneyBear, Schoompsy, Trubacca, Are You &%^$ing Kidding Me?, etc. You were the light of my life for 10 long years. From the moment I saw that sweet face that just needed another chance at life I knew we were going to have a lot of adventures together. You were the canine embodiment of me, an extension of my personality. You would eat anything, sleep anywhere, always down for a roadtrip, loved visitors anytime of day or night. We traveled, we moved cross country, we rode on strange buses, cars and trains together, and even a scooter once. You were always so adaptable and it made loving you so easy. I know you held on until you knew I was ready. I wouldn't be who I am or where I am in life without your constant love and listening ear to keep me going. Through every new apartment, new boyfriend, new job, you were there to put your head in my lap and remind me that you were going to be the constant that I could count on in case this new adventure didn't work out, and that made it all okay. I could face whatever happened because I knew you'd be there if it all blew up, and you were. You taught me patience (seriously, must you SNIFF EVERY SQUARE INCH OF THE YARD BEFORE YOU PEE?). You taught me love, and you taught me that good and wonderful things may not last, but the memory of them always will. You made me who I am today. You will always be a part of me. I will carry you in my heart forever. I love you my sweet girl.Fallon BrooksOklahoma City, OklahomaMay 21, 2020
Rascal
3/31/2007 - 3/28/2020Today I write the hardest lines ...

It was so hard to lose my best furry friend, my dear sweet Rascal. I did not know that this year would be our last year together. I wish you would have had an appetite during your last few days of life because I would have given you your favorite carb-full human foods: Parmesan goldfish, tortilla chips, bread, and what else you would have wanted. I am sometimes distraught with guilt over what I could have done to better assist you, I miss you everyday, I sleep with your "cuddle" blanket, and miss your daily & nightly kneading on my lap with your favorite "cuddle" blanket. Timmy tearfully said how you have been such a big part of our 12 year relationship and you loved Timmy just as much. I have played a video of you "talking" for your brothers, Piedy and Little Guy, to hear and they run over and wonder where you are.

You have been with me through so many of my life's goals I was able to accomplish, life changes I experienced, and brought me joy, kindness, and love to my heart and soul during some very difficult times in my life I had to learn to cope with. Now I have to learn to cope with you being physically gone from my life, my world, my being. It's in the quietness of these times, the heaviness that creeps in, the longingness of where have you gone to my handsome guy.

I was full of acceptance when you rapidly became sick because I knew I had to be and I thank you for giving me that last lesson to learn from you on how to cope and how to love fearlessly, especially during this time of grief, loss, and pandemic.

Misty
6/9/2004 - 5/12/2020Our beloved Misty crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 12th. She was a loving, carefree girl and loved running in the yard chasing birds and squirrels. She especially loved riding in the truck and camping along with wrestling with her fur siblings. She was always smiling and brought much joy into our lives. And while she was "daddy's girl", she always came to me for comfort when my husband was making noises with the lawn tractor or weed-eater. She will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace sweet baby! We love you!Lynn MitchellBaltimore, OhioMay 21, 2020
Toby
11/24/2006 - 5/17/2020To my sweet boy Toby, oh how we miss you, the house is just not the same without you here. We are so happy that you were apart of our family for the last 13 and a half years. Everyday that we spent with you was not only a joy but a blessing, you made our lives complete. Your friend miss Daisy is missing you terribly but we are giving her extra love from you. Though we are very sad that you have left us we know you are finally free from the pain and distress of your ailing body. We will hold on to the memories of you that are in every corner of the house and yard, you will never be forgotten my dear friend! We love you Toby xoxoRebecca NicolettiFreedom, PennsylvaniaMay 21, 2020
Cosmo
9/1/2004 - 5/19/2020My sweet, sweet boy I miss your snuggles and little hugs. I miss you snuggling up in bed with me at night. I miss you patiently waiting for breakfast in the morning as I made my coffee. You were the best kitty I’ve ever known. You were so gentle and quiet yet my home feels so unbelievably empty without you.. I keep thinking how lucky heaven is to have a handsome boy like you. You’ve been a part of our family for so long, we are so grateful for all the years we got to spending loving you. I will miss you forever.Aliecia DunnMaple Grove, MinnesotaMay 21, 2020
Felix
1/1/2005 - 5/18/2020Sweet Felix, I don't think there are enough words to describe how much you are missed. Your sweet face always brightened everyone up. Knowing that you're not hurting anymore is some comfort, but we will miss cuddling with you and your puffy buns. In your fifteen years, you were the best boy, my sweet boy. I miss you begging for food (and me giving in, you silly pup) and I miss you grumbling when I woke you up in the morning. I just miss everything about you! I hope you're able to chase tennis balls again, and run like the wind. Love you sweet pup.Angela StullPittsburgh, PennsylvaniaMay 20, 2020
Ginger Van Wie
9/16/2006 - 5/4/2020Oh Gingy, we miss you so much. You were such a wonderful little girl. The house is a bit empty now, but you were ill, and it was time. So painful to let you go. We look forward to seeing you and you Aunt Mattie, our 1st lab, at The Bridge. You were always happy to see us when we came from work, or other family outings. And oh boy, were you mischievous. For many years, you would find paper on the desk, and shred them....because we didn't take you with us. I'm sure of that. You were always sheepish when we got home after your little escapade. No matter, we loved you. We love you Gingy, and you gave us so much happiness. We'll see you again little girl, and we'll all be so happy.

Love you Gingy,

Warren, Maria, and Mike Van Wie
