Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
5/1/2016 - 3/15/2016Good bye sweet Ty . I will never forget you my friend . Of all the dogs I have had in my life you were the only one who loved me with a loyalty and unconditional faith that I have never had before. Sleep well my love and I promise I will see you again some day. I love you forever, MomPat NixonCharlotte, North CarolinaMarch 18, 2016
8/1/2003 - 2/29/2016We've had many pets together, and Cricket is my favorite of all. I just loved spending time with her more than anything. She loved us and protected us her whole life. We'll always have dogs - but I don't know if I'll get to experience again the special bond that I shared with her. If so I'll be very lucky! She was beautiful, sweet, loving, and loyal. And smart, a very smart girl. My best friend. We're so thankful that she spent 12 1/2 years with us. Cricket we will love and miss you always.Elaine and Todd MillerRaleigh, North CarolinaMarch 18, 2016
12/13/1999 - 3/7/2016A sweet boy with a big personality, you warmed our hearts and made us smile every day. Always the playful one, you filled our home with joy and laughter. You took with you a piece of our hearts. You will be forever missed.Paul DiazAltamonte Springs, FloridaMarch 17, 2016
3/14/2016Sweet little Coco... You came into our lives a terrified little stray, barely a year old. You left us this week at 16, the "Grande Dame" of the household. Your brothers Sparky, Mojo and the Gremlin miss you a lot - as do we. When you find your big sister Cookie and VERY big brother Reno up there in doggie heaven, give them kisses from us. You never knew Gracie, but I'm sure she will introduce herself. :) Your little light has gone out here on Earth, but we'll be looking for your star in the sky.Val and Dave AbrahamLas Vegas, NevadaMarch 17, 2016
12/23/2006 - 3/14/2016HEAVEN'S DOGGY-DOOR

My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head was in my hand.
The Doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.

The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And OH...his many charms.

Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart thats filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.

But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our canine friends,
HE's installed a 'doggy-door"!

10/6/2003 - 2/18/2016It is with a sad and heavy heart that we write this memorial for our angel, Hershey, who got her wings on February 18, 2016. Hershey loved to take long walks and fetch her favorite red ball at the park. She always followed us around and made sure we were always together. But most of all she loved to swim, and boy, was she good at it! She even taught herself how to jump off the diving board! We know she's in heaven running around again with our Dalmation, Shyne, and swimming until her heart's content. It's also nice to know she finally got to meet our first dog, Precious.
Rest in peace, my angel, and we'll see you again some day.
P.s. Your sisters, Coco and Lili, miss you very much, too. Lili is so sad she has been sleeping on your big bed every night and meows every time she hears your name.

5/19/2003 - 3/14/2016Rest in peace my little boy. Mom loves you. You were my lover, my comforter, my little clown. You made me laugh, invented games to play, played chase with us around the house and faked us out with your quick turns, knew all your toys by name, loved to go for a ride, loved French fries, biscotti and everything else we ate, cuddled on our laps while we were on the computer, played with the grand babies, rode the laundry basket to the washing machine, loved to shop, watched me cook and sampled the food. I will never forget you. Risky Business May 20, 2002 - March 11, 2016Lisalita GBenicia, CaliforniaMarch 17, 2016
3/14/2016It is with a heavy heart I share with you the passing of the "best ol bob tail beast" ever, Glimmer. I will miss his "welcoming chirps" and his running up the stairs to give nose licks upon entering the house, leisurely naps on my keyboard or lying upside down watching me do household chores, and numerous requests to be brushed. It will be very strange not to wake in the night to the thunderous footfalls of an intruder only to realize it was just Glimmer going down the steps. He was a kind and gentle spirit, extremely laid back, and very affectionate. He was the only cat I have ever known that hated to play, even as a kitten. I think we was just an "old soul".

A friend once told me that cats choose their master and I am very lucky to have been chosen by him. He was the very best pet anyone could ever ask for, never a bother, and he exuded happiness and unconditional love. Glimmer, dutiful and loyal companion, will be missed and remembered each and every day.

Into our lives this lovely light shone,
A rescued angel in search of a home.

He stole our hearts, he blossomed and grew,
Into a loving companion, faithful and true.

Now his steps have faltered and his coat turned to grey,
And The Lord has whistled our angel home to stay.

Words don’t exist to express our love,
And our loss will be felt for years to come.

4/1/2000 - 3/13/2016Everyday with you, Maxi was a treasure and an honor. Thank you for being my best friend for nearly 16 years. No one could have asked for a better pet than you were. You greeted me at the door, followed me around the house, and sat wherever I sat. I hope I was half of the human as you were a pet to me. I never wanted you to suffer as you took a lot of suffering away from me over the years. I believe your passing over was a peaceful one and I was honored to hold you the whole time. Go be with Grandpa now. He will take good care of you and you will surely take good care of him, as you did for me.

Until we meet again. My love to you forever. Love, your very lucky human Lynnea.
