Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
2/14/2004 - 1/15/2021Macy, my best friend. I really don't know what to say; I am so lost for words....Where did these past 17 years have gone? Every where I turn, I am expecting to see you sit on the blanket in your favorite spot or come around the corner when I least expect it. The pain of your loss hurts but I am so glad you were part of my life. I will celebrate your life and all the fun we had! Although we are not together, we will see each other again. I know you are enjoying the sun, as you always do.Danny SheehanSeattle, WashingtonJanuary 18, 2021
4/8/2004 - 1/15/2021Ivy you were more than our family pet. To me you were my friend and my heart! So much we will all miss but most of all is you're presence in our house. It feels different here without you and that made us understand just how much apart of our family you are. I love you my angel, and I thank God he sent you my way nearly 17 years ago.Amanda DIAZLas Vegas, NevadaJanuary 18, 2021
1/13/2010 - 1/16/2021Rosemary "Rosie" Grace Eickholt-Nolan entered the Great Beyond today, assisted but in her own home surrounded by those who love her, whom she tolerated. Rosie began her reign in our household in February 2013 and let us know that she was the Queen Diva from day 1. Rosie ruled over her disloyal subjects Isabella "Izzy" (allegedly her litter-mate), Oliver, Eleanor, Veda, Jordan, and myself for 8 years. Prior to this domain, she ruled in territories unknown for approximately 2-3 years under the alias "Pearl". She was predeceased by her Grandpa Nolan, whom she bit once, and possibly by her brother Fitzgerald, although his fate remains unknown. Rosie thoroughly enjoyed napping in cardboard boxes in the front window, chasing her sister Izzy with malace, and playing with a destroyed toy known as "Rosie's kill" that was once a fuzzy tail cat wand but ended up as an object of Rosie's affection which she carried room to room while yoweling, toy stick and all. Rosie was a friend to few and an enemy to many, but she loved Jordan and coveted his lap as the ideal placement for her pillow throne. Her preferences for affection were mysterious and often confusing as she preferred aggressive pets and would nip at you if she found your attention to be disingenuous, light-handed, or neared her lower back, butt, stomach, or tail (site of an injury from long before her life in this house that caused a permanent kink in her tail). Rosie often fancied herself an outdoor cat, attempting escape at every opportunity, a dream that she only fulfilled twice in her life. The first time Rosie escaped was the day of her adoption when, as we carried the crate into the house with her and Izzy inside, the crate broke and each cat ran in a different direction. Rosie, thankfully, ran and hid in our garage and was easily rescued (Izzy was another story). Rosie's second escape from captivity was when she capitalized on an opportunity presented by the HVAC repair man. The door wasn't latched and she took the opportunity to let herself out to look around. When Jordan found her, she had wandered just over the property line and was delicately sniffing a leaf with no fear of predators or enemies, natural instinct indeed. Rosie's proudest moments were when her decorative collar roses were changed (done frequently since she groomed them) and when she got the red naughty mark added to her permanent file at the vet. Her attributed voice is that of a Russian mafia member (she's likely part Russian Blue and obviously has a penchant for murder) and we're pretty sure she was Devine reincarnated. Her middle name comes from her lack of grace (due to her tail) as she never met a ledge she could land on squarely. Rosie was our first baby and there will never be another kitten quite like her. She will always be remembered and missed.Danielle Nolan-EickholtOsseo, MinnesotaJanuary 17, 2021
1/30/2005 - 1/16/2021Our sweet Otto. Thank you for choosing us to be your family, and for giving us so much love and companionship thru the years. We’ll never forget seeing you for the first time at the shelter when you were 4 months old. How excited you were to see us – how excited we were you chose us. You are the most sweetest and bravest boy there ever was. You have the heart of a warrior, and the most beautiful brown soulful eyes that I’ve ever had the honor to look into. . We will miss our walks, our playtime, our talks, your snores and your silliness, and scratching your tickle spot. We are heartbroken, and will miss you terribly. Come visit us in our dreams. Run free puppy boy. Rest in love our sweet Otto. Mama and Jonathan will carry you in our hearts forever. We love you so very much.Sue GrayOdenton, MarylandJanuary 17, 2021
8/10/2004 - 1/16/2021Preparing for this day, I came across a speech titled “Eulogy of the Dog,” delivered by a man named George Vest, which I’ll quote here: “a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. [S]he will sleep on the cold ground when the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only [s]he can be near [her] master's side. [S]he will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, [s]he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world…When all other friends desert, [s]he remains…And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes [her] master in its embrace and his body is laid in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, [her] head between [her] paws and [her] eyes sad but open, in alert watchfulness, faithful and true, even unto death.” That last part doesn’t exactly ring true, because I would always joke that if I happened to drop dead in the house, Flower would definitely eat my corpse without a moment’s hesitation. But I wouldn’t have minded it; there’s no coming between Flower and her food. And how could you ever say no to that sweet face? She never struggled to get me to do what she wanted.

But aside from that one false note, that describes Flower well, a loyal and steadfast companion, who was always there when I needed a cuddle mid-pandemic, even if it might take a snack or two to coax it out of her. (It was a fair trade) Flower, I love you like no other. I’ll miss you always.

8/26/2007 - 1/14/2021JD came into our lives as a rescue from North Shore Animal League in the fall of 2007. He had a difficult start in life being abandoned but found a loving home and soon “ruled the roost” as he grew up and always kept the house abuzz with his mischief.

There was never a dull moment with JD around, and we soon learned to hide our hats, shoes and socks or we would need to reclaim them with quick, playful run around the dining room table and sometimes even ending in a tug of war.

JD kept us warm when we huddled together with no power during Hurricane Sandy. He comforted us during other tough times when we needed a laugh or someone to chill with and he was always the vigilant sentinel when any strangers abound, filling the house with his powerful bark to keep us safe.

We are all going to miss Doggo, Babbnuch, Smoochy-Poochie - or our JD.

11/10/2007 - 1/16/2021He was my partner for 13 years. Always by my side. I love and miss him so much. He did whatever he wanted whenever he wanted. He was so patient with the kids.

My funniest memory of him was when we first moved to Charleston. I was home alone with him and had ordered a pizza. I left the room for less than a minute and he ate the entire pizza.

12/1/2006 - 1/12/2021Our family was fortunate to spend 12 years with Thor. He was our rescue puppy and first baby. Thor enjoyed long walks, even longer hikes, and sniffing everything in between. Eating was Thor's #1 hobby and he loved all foods. He once swiped an entire chicken off the counter and polished off a loaf of Zingerman's bread as well. Thor spent lazy mornings napping in the sunlight by the back door and evenings playing with his family members and asking them for love and scratches. Thor was the very best big brother to Karolina and Jonah and watched over them as babies. Thor spent his younger days attempting to catch all sorts of prey and while he only managed to get close to a couple of backyard rabbits, his biggest successes was finding a frozen, dead squirrel with his favorite friend, Terry. Thor was fiercely loyal and above all (well except for eating meat) loved being with his people. We miss him very much and he will always be part of our family.

Love, Dave, Karla, Karolina, and Jonah Mandell
