Pet Memorials
Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Bebe
9/23/2008 - 1/20/2021It was the hardest choice to bid the hardest of all farewells to my loyal companion of over 11 years. BB was truly a gem and loved by anyone who took the time to know her funny, quirky personality. She quickly morphed from a cute little Frenchie to my consistent source of joy and other-worldly emotional and psychic connection. It was love at first sight with the two of us and we were bonded immediately. She never shed her New Yorker sassy attitude. But she was so gentle and sweet to literally any living being that came into contact with her. I was beyond lucky to have her in my life. She deserved the beautiful last day she had with her family and our goodbye embrace was bathed in the warmth of the sun, magically bidding its own farewell. My heart breaks to lose this pure, unconditional love and the silence without her is deafening. But I embrace the light that comes through the cracks. My only consolation is that we spent a lot of quality time together, she didn’t suffer and was loyal and happy to the very end. She will be very missed by those who knew and loved her. I’ll always love you, my dear little angel.Saloumeh HamidiWashington, DC, District of ColumbiaJanuary 21, 2021

11/5/2005 - 1/18/2021Eventually you will just be a story in my head, we’re all just stories in the end. Just make it a good one eh? Because it was, you know? It was the best story of all time. Me and you Peter.Abby ClineTampa, FloridaJanuary 21, 2021
Tiger
6/12/2010 - 1/18/2021Tiger was my best friend. He was the most wonderful furry companion anyone could ask for. He was always playful, caring and attentive. Tiger was a very special spirit. He battled his terminal diagnosis to the very end. He is at peace now, no more pain. The house is so empty without him. Elizabeth and I miss him so much. We are so blessed to have had him in our lives. I miss you Bubba.Barry RichardLodi, CaliforniaJanuary 21, 2021

11/24/2007 - 1/18/2021Tobyyyyy,

From your handsome coat, super gravity cuddles in bed, and your love of our pets, we cherish these and so many more memories with you. The house isn't the same without your greeting us at the top of the stairs. We miss you, as do your brother and sister. Thank you for being the best cat ever. We will never forget you!

Love,
Chris, Monica, Tyler, and Lola

Patrick
5/27/2002 - 1/19/2021My heart is broken over the passing of my best friend Patrick on January 19, 2021. You were just a little kitten when you introduced yourself to me while I was out for a walk. I couldn’t leave you on the streets so I brought you home. I became so attached to you. I never had a cat before so I did all the wrong things at first. I soon learned the way of the cat.
Many years and over many miles we have been together that neither of us would have had if not for you rescuing me all those years ago. Along our journey you gained two sisters and a mom who miss you as much as I do.
I miss you so so much my dearest Patrick. I look forward to seeing you again. Visit us as much as you like and I will keep your food bowl full. I love you my friend, my son. You will always be remembered, Dad

I want to thank Patrick for coming into Steve’s life. He has been with Steve through the good times and the bad. Patrick has been a constant companion and forever friend. I will miss and always remember Patrick sitting on Steve’s lap every night. Sharing their love for each other. I will always remember the precious moments we shared on the couch giving you brushing. Patrick was an Angel cat to my husband Steve. Patrick will always be remembered and we will both live honorable and Godly lives so we can see Patrick in Heaven. Forever Loved, Mom

Miss Bella Louise Hughes
2/1/2009 - 1/18/2021On January 18, 2021, I said goodbye to my best friend, Miss Bella Louise.
It was the worst, hardest, most painful thing I’ve ever had to do. I am heartbroken and devastated.
Bella was by my side nearly every day for the last eleven years. She was my world. My angel. My everything.
I miss her so much.
We were meant to find each other, and we had a wonderful life together. I’ll forever be grateful to Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue for facilitating that “chance” meeting at Petco one cold Saturday in February—February 27, 2010. Seven months after I moved to Nashville, knowing barely a soul. And I’m grateful to Nashville Veterinary Specialists and Lap of Love and Dr. Emily for their kindness and patience these last few days.
Despite her 12-ish years, the diagnosis was sudden, unexpected.
Cardiac hemangiosarcoma.
Heart cancer. No cure. No viable treatment. Wednesday night we were snuggling on the couch watching Netflix; Thursday evening, I sat alone in my car while doctors removed fluid from her pericardial sac. Friday afternoon I took her home after an echocardiogram confirmed a mass on her heart. I did nothing for the next 60 hours but lie on the floor beside her bed, offer her food and water, take her out to potty, and sleep a little on the couch a few feet away from her. I researched the diagnosis and spoke to representatives from Lap of Love. And I finally scheduled a vet to come to the house.
Making that decision was awful. Two people’s words helped me: a vet tech at NVS and someone from Lap of Love. The first said to choose one of her good days and remember her like that; don’t wait until she’s suffering and miserable or becomes critical. The second shared a quote: “It’s better to help a friend a week too soon than a day too late.”
Dr. Emily’s presence, kind words, and assurance that I was doing the right thing helped me through those most awful moments.
I wept.
I’ll miss my Bella every single day for the rest of my life.
I hope she’s found her friends in heaven—Townes, Clyde, Tanner, Spencer—and is speed running through the clouds. She loved to run and was so fast.
Words don’t exist to honor her sufficiently. For her goodness. Her sweetness. Her gentleness. Her happiness. Her companionship. For all she has meant to me. My precious, precious girl.

Maizy
1/22/2005 - 1/8/2021Ohh, My Adorable Maizy, who brought SO much love and laughter in OUR times of need. You stole my heart the moment I met you. I knew God sent you for a purpose, and you served me well. You lost your owner after 15 years, and I lost my pet after 12. While in mourning, we found each other, and then the pandemic hit, and we had one another to comfort in a time of isolation and quarantine. In such a short amount of time, you made a significant impact on my life. You loved HARD! I never felt a love like that from any animal I had rescued or adopted. You gave me exactly what I needed in the season I was in, and I know it was divinely orchestrated. You were a cuddle snuggle bug and always had to be touching me, laying across my chest, legs, head on my pillow, and drool across my face. You licked me to death daily and also made me laugh when you do those yoga poses-split legs on the bare floors, face smooshed into the carpet, yodeling for food, and bossing the bigger dogs in the house. You kept everything in order, structure, and in-check. You were also needy, but I didn't mind one bit. You made me busy but in a nurturing care-giving way, and I enjoyed the compassion I felt for you. I was delivering you your water bowls, carrying you to bed, waking up three times a night so you can potty, and cooking you holistic meals. I am beyond grateful for the year the Lord granted us. We got to spend every single holiday together and celebrate your golden year of 16 with mutual respect, a deep understanding of our borrowed time together, honor, and a peaceful end. Maizy, you brought greater meaning into my life, gratitude, and tenderness that will be hard ever to replace. Thank you, my friend, until your 2nd mommy sees you again-cross Rainbow Bridge with joyful peace.Melissa SantaellaLas Vegas, NevadaJanuary 20, 2021

Bud
1/3/2010 - 1/19/2021Our chunky monkey, Bud, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. We miss him dearly - he was our kissey boy, mouse/rat catcher, love bunny. He loved everything and everyone, especially little children and babies - couldn't get enough of 'em!
He'll meet his big sister Samantha when he goes over the Bridge - I know she'll show him the ropes.
He's no longer suffering or in pain. Every day we had with Bud we were blessed.
We love you boy!

Sara
1/17/2006 - 1/19/2021Sara, Sara You were always a little shy, but you ran with the best of them. You lost your other sister 5 yrs ago but you hung in there. You had a great 15 years. You went camping, you rode up and down the highway from Fla to NC numerous times per year. You were not impressed when the new puppy came to the house 4 years ago but you learned to love her and every once in a while you would even play with her. You always had a blanket as you are always cold, even in the hottest day. You loved to lay in the chair on the porch in the sun and you would stay there a long while. You and Madison became best friends after your sister passed. You would clean her teeth every night while she just laid on the floor. I never figured that one out. No more back pain, no more hip pain you are free to run. We will miss you Sara, SaraSusan ArnoldSAINT AUGUSTINE, FloridaJanuary 20, 2021
