Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Shepp
12/24/2003 - 5/9/2020Cindy and Elyse. May 09 2020, was hard day for our family as we sent Shepp of into eternal rest. I have resisted for a long while playing God in this matter, I struggled with over the past several months playing God with the taking of life I did not create, I'd had hoped in a small way God would take Shepp in his sleep since God is the source of all living, by his Breath we became alive, Genesis. Elyse, had such compassion for us during this time for our family, looking upon her as she shared with us in our grief, I had wondered how many times she had taken up this mantel of compassion for families she has never met, and just blended in as a family member and made our loss her loss. She has a good heart and it must be a little tough on her to do this sort of work but hats off to her and your staff, glad my vet, Dr Silverstone put me in touch with you folks. Thank You, once again for your time with us and the mementos that you offered us, with a lock of his hair and paw print, did not expect that. Take care and much strength in what you do for families.

Kyle
6/15/2015 - 5/11/2020Kyle, I miss you so so much. You deserved a much longer and happier life. Though our time together was cut far too short, the bond we had will stay forever. You were my best friend and always knew how to comfort me when I was down. The day we said goodbye, you knew how upset I was and laid on my chest for hours. You’ve helped me through so much and I don’t know yet how to live without you by my side. However, I know you are in a better place now, cancer free and meowing like crazy. I’ll always love you my angel kitty, and I can’t wait to see you again some day.Zoë WillsonRochester, New YorkMay 13, 2020

Clifford
6/13/2007 - 5/8/2020In loving memory of Clifford, our big red furbaby. You gave us unconditional LOVE everyday for so many years, Thank you for the loyalty and happiness you gave us everyday. Thank you for enduring for the time that you did so we can be together. Thank you for understanding our need to give you peace. Our hearts hurt and this transition has been emotionally difficult for us as we see your favorite spaces empty and reminders of you everywhere. We often times wake up temporarily forgetting that you have departed and have taken a piece of our hearts with you. I know we will meet again and hope that in the interim, you come visit us in our dreams. Always loving you my beloved Cliffy.Cecilia CintronWesley Chapel, FloridaMay 13, 2020

Kaelee
12/1/2008 - 5/8/2020Kaelee, you were the best dog/little sister/best friend I could ever ask for. We grew up together and always had fun together. You were the first one I saw everyday when I got up to go to school. You always made me happy even when I was sad or angry about something. I miss you putting your paw on me, letting me know that you want to be pet. I miss throwing the tennis ball to you outside and I miss you trying to catch a tennis ball in your mouth even though you were not that good at that. I miss your smile when you got your favorite belly rub and I miss cuddling with you. You would never hurt anybody or do anything bad. You were the nicest dog that anyone could ask for. I miss you and love you so much. You will be missed everyday and will always have a spot in my heart no matter what. Love you Kaelee.

The Dash... ((I modified that poem just for you baby boy))

I am the man who stood to speak, at the funeral of his furry friend. I referred to his birthday till today, from beginning… to the end.
I noted that day of birth, and spoke of the following date with tears, but I said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents, all the time he spent on earth; and only those who loved him know, what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash. What matters most is how he lived, and how he spent his dash.
So, thought about it long and hard; is it time for his little life to change? For you never know how much time is left, that still can be arranged.
To be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more, and love that furry baby in our life, like we’ve never loved before.
When we love, snuggle and kiss his wet nose; that always makes us smile… remembering that this special dash, might only last a little while.
So, when our fur baby’s eulogy was finally being read, with his life and love to rehash, we looked at him with love, and said thank you for letting us be, witness to your dash...


We will miss you every second of every day and this so painful. so painful we cant stand it. But your little body and mind was so tired and it was time to let you get some good rest and get you away for your illness. I am so sorry we had to sat good by for now. Just know we will see you again our sweet baby boy!

Kingston
1/12/2012 - 5/1/2020We made initial arrangements for our beloved Kingston due to many health complications he was enduring. He made significant improvements and we deferred for a while saying goodbye to maximize our time with Kingston. When the time came to say goodbye, Dr. Megan met us, explained everything and was a true professional throughout the process. She kept Kingston calm and most of all comfortable as we said not our final goodbyes, but see you laters. The compassion Dr. Megan exhibited cannot merely be put into words, we will remain forever grateful for the service Dr. Megan at Lap Of Love provided us along with Honor Thy Pet Crematory, all truly compassionate professionals. Sincerely and with Kindest Regards, Lisa & DanLisa & Dan CCocoa Beach, FloridaMay 11, 2020

If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and as loving as they are.”
