Pet Memorials
Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
5/9/2000 - 7/8/2015Last Day

Gentle breezes usher lazy clouds
Sunlight sprinkles eyes wide
Senses flood with familiarity

Evening pushes the sun over the horizon
Tears fall onto velvet fur
Parents embrace their beloved pet

Eyes close in forever sleep
Sweet song spirit releases
Free to run in heaven’s fields

Watch me as I fly away
To play with old friends
Welcome all who come
Until we are together again

Lucky Girl
8/18/2005 - 7/8/2015Our Luckygirl has only been gone a short amount of time and she is already missed so badly. Lucky was the best dog ever. She was Dean's little sister. She was my companion and best confidante. She was always Happy to see us, even at the very end while she was in so much pain. She never asked for much and tolerated with love everything from us dressing her in outfits (that she hated! Lol) to carting her around in her 'taco' (her puppy bed) to visit everyone. She was the little boss of the house. She felt like it was her job to protect me and Dean; a job she performed equally from strangers at the door to neighbors she's 'known' for years! She was a tuff little 'Miss'! She was with us for 10 years,,,from the time Dean was in 2nd grade. You don't often consciously think of your pet; they are just always there. Her leaving us yesterday has made an enormous silence in our world. Her little 'pipping' around the house and always under your feet when food was present. Just so many of the little things we already miss. Who knew that when this little scrappy puppy came into our lives (with her brothers from 'the real mommy') that she was going to have such a huge impact in our world? I would have not traded my little scruffy girl for any other no matter how many comcast remotes she ate!Lisa MillerPHILADELPHIA, PennsylvaniaJuly 10, 2015
6/8/2005 - 7/7/2015Rocky was a true Rockstar. Everyone who met Rocky could see the kindness in his eyes. He always appeared to be listening when you spoke to him and would sit on the couch like a person. Rocky was always there for us when we needed him, a true unconditional love. He can never be replaced. Rocky is missed by all of his family.Andrea BurrosGreen Cove Springs, FloridaJuly 9, 2015
7/5/2015I first met Dayrell when he would come home over summer breaks with Ehren. I did not understand why he did not seem to like me much. Slowly, he warmed up to me and began to walk by me and brush against my leg. Then, he would purr when I pet him. I was smitten with the little guy. I have been in love with him ever since. I would watch and protect him while Ehren traveled out of the country. Dayrell was my friend. He is the only pet that was ever allowed on my bed. I could not resist him! A strong memory of mine is the soft, loving pats I would feel on my arm or face when he wanted attention. He liked a lot of attention. When I had to work, he would be happy to lie on the desk between my keyboard and monitor, just to be close. Dayrell loved all-over massages and belly rubs! He was more than a pet; he was part of our family. I will fondly remember Dayrell as part of my being. Rest in peace, my buddy.

4/9/2001Gator was a true member of the family, and was always going to be wherever we were in the house. Always loyal, kind, and lovable, we could not have asked for a better pet. He is missed so much it hurts all of our family's hearts. As my son says, gatey is missing from our family now and it makes us so sad.Catherine RaulersonSt Augustine, FloridaJuly 8, 2015
3/22/2002 - 6/2/2015Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals that had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Noj, you will live on forever in all our hearts, the empty spot you've left never filled, enjoy doggie heaven until we can be reunited again.

6/22/2015A truly wonderful, gentle, extremely smart dog! Don't know exactly how old he was since the came from the "pound," but he was with us for over ten years.Ed and Jane McCurley and EwaltLexington, KentuckyJuly 7, 2015
1/1/2000 - 7/3/2015Dear Friend (Buddy),

You came into our lives out of nowhere and filled our hearts with joy. Once you found us you never left our side. You knew you had found a loving home and displayed such loyalty and companionship.It is hard to put into words how you completed our lives.

It was such a joy to spoil you and take you on trips in the motor home as well as to the cabin and nice resorts. You were always so happy to go on a road trip! You were a protector of us, as well as the cats and the other dog(s). Always so patient to get a morsel and you never complained about anything as long as we were near.

We spoiled you until the end and hoped we would never have to say goodbye. I hope you are free of pain and running like a pup in doggie Heaven. May someday we be reunited and our hearts be made full again.

We miss you so much,
Love Dave & Brandi

10/19/1998 - 7/5/2015Dear Maxine.

While I have been thinking about how hard it was for me to let you go, I realized how hard it has been for you to stay. I can't remember the last time you barked, the last time you wagged your tail, or the last time you greeted me at the door. I miss that girl and know you do too.

When I picked you up on Monday, October 19th, 1998, I made a commitment to keep you forever. We had a tough time with potty training, chewing and eating everything in sight, not distinguishing between the edible and inedible Never mastered that, but I forgive you. And I hope you forgive me. You were my first dog and I really didn't know what I was getting in to or how to raise a dog. Lucky for me, you turned out to be a perfect you.

You're gone now and I am relieved to not see you in pain, hear you pant in discomfort, watch you lose control of your bowels, or hear you cry for help to stand up. My commitment that I made didn't end with your last breath. You were my first and favorite dog. Don't worry, Kaitlen knows. I will keep my commitment and you will live in my heart until my last breath.

Thank you for picking me. Thank you for being a true companion. I'll love you forever and will remember you always.

Your faithful owner, Marjorie

1/1/2002 - 7/4/2015Jake,

What a life you lived! I invited you into my family when you were only 8 weeks old, and instead of sleeping in the puppy bed I bought and placed in the passenger seat of my car, you insisted on crawling up behind my neck, on my shoulders for the entire two hour drive to your new home!! I should've known then that your antics would only get better! You made my life worth living. Every moment, the good times and the bad, were surrounded by your stoic face. Thank you for accompanying me on our many hikes, and trips to the ocean (even though I literally had to drag you away from the beach...I sure hope the crowd got a laugh out of it), and our swims in the streams. Those places will never be the same without you. But most importantly, thank you for welcoming my new baby boy home with openness and love. Though I am certain he annoyed you, you accepted him and yes, let him pull on your hair and climb all over you while mommy wasn't watching! Your last day on this earth gave me the greatest laugh of my life: I watched little Steven keep crawling toward you, while you inched away, all the while little Steven cracked himself up, and laughed the biggest laugh of his life.

Jacob, you are my best friend. Forever and always. I miss you so very dearly, but i suppose you are running around already and stealing balls from over the rainbow bridge. I know I can't ask you to wait for me, but I can't wait to get to heaven just to see your beautiful face again. My love for you is immeasurable, and I will carry you in my heart always. Like Dr. Lauren said, forever is not long enough. I would've kept you forever. All your best buddies say to wish you well and safe and fun travels. Morgan A. sent lots of prayers to you last night. She wished she was there to hold you too. Mrs. Robin says to tell you she loves you. She too is heartbroken, but she knows you are not in pain anymore.

So swim forever. Chase all the balls you can. And eat steak and french fries every night! I love you so much.

Until we meet again,

Mommy. .
