Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
12/21/2001 - 4/14/2015My sweet angel Maxine passed away yesterday. My heart is empty and I feel a sadness I didn’t think was possible.
Even though Maxine survived a couple of surgeries in the past few years, her body grew tired and weak and it was time for us to say goodbye - for now. Thank you my Maxine for teaching me how to love so deeply. You are the love of my life.

10/10/1999 - 4/7/2015Mr. Nico Samalis

Born on October 10, 1999 and passed peacefully on April 7, 2015.

Nico you had so many aliases; Mr. Nico, Smedberg, Tito, Mr. Wigglesworth, Little Buddy, the list goes on. Over the past 15 years you have been my pet, friend and furry baby. You have been the most loyal and loving companion to me. Any time I was upset about life’s trials and troubles I would look at your smooshy pug face and know that everything will be ok. Cuddling with you was my antidote to anything negative going on in my life. Now as I sit here typing this my heart breaks knowing this is our last night together. As I look down at your smooshy little face, a bit grayer now but still equally cute to me, I know that you won’t be in my office working all day keeping my feet warm and you won’t be there to see Tommy and Henry grow up but I promise you that you will always be a part of our lives because you have given us so many wonderful memories which will last us a lifetime. I hope you had fun little buddy, we certainly enjoyed your love and companionship.

You will never be forgotten. I miss your loud snoring already.

4/10/2015You were mine and I was yours. We were so compatible and boring and perfect. What is there to say but that my heart is on the ground. The apartment is too big without you.Caroline VollmerWashington, District of ColumbiaApril 13, 2015
Lola Jean
2/2/2002 - 4/10/2015This message is in Honor of "Our Beloved, Lola Jean"
She was as sweet as sugar and always enjoyed her sisters and brother. There were four pups, and she loved them all.
She was a gentle soul, we miss her so much. Lola was the first that I have ever lost, she had 5th stage Leukemia. She passed
away just about three weeks after her terminal diagnosis. I suffered the grief of watching her lose half of of her body weight, and I had been cooking for her, and my other three pups no salt meats and eggs homemade. In spite of my efforts she stopped eating three days
before we had to tell her goodbye, a very distressing time to say the least. My heart is broken. We did the humane thing to do for
"her" very painful emotionally for me, it may be part of life, but it's the part " I " don't do so well with.
We hope to see her "The Bridge, Rainbow Bridge"

7/22/1996 - 4/10/2015Samson, or Sammy as we called him was the most loving and devoted being I have ever know. It's hard to call him a cat, because he was so much more. He was by my side for almost 19 years, through the good and the bad. We had many great times together and he will be missed more than words can say. It's been almost two days since he passed, and it's been two very long days. When you have a friend like Sammy who is by your side for so long. It's hard to believe he is no longer here. I Love you Samson, with all my heart. I look forward to holding you in Heaven again one day.John ColeyConcord, North CarolinaApril 12, 2015

6/7/2015 - 4/10/2015This is a combination memory and story of Riley my Golden. We met through a friend 12 years ago and I adopted him from a single mom with three children who simply could not take care of him. At the time he had an ear infection and other medical issues. I took him to my favorite Vet who gave him a super examination, some medicine and we were on our way.

What a fantastic venture it turned out to me. Let me interject that as hard as it was to let him go, I can honestly say I do not have one, not one single tinge of guilt during our time together. He never heard me raise my voice, discipline him in any way or cause him any harm. He gave me unconditional love and I did my best to return that love and for that I am forever grateful. Yes, I miss him, oh, do I miss him, but together we had a great life.

Without going into detail at an early age Riley became a Service Dog and was proud of his vest and I was proud to say: "He's mine." He took unbelievable care of me, he really did. He could sense things a doctor could not. During the course of years, medication alone took care of my condition, but I still allowed Riley to come with me everywhere. He came to church with me, shopping, to the movie theatre, on too many walks to count, countless trips from Florida to Michigan and back. He visited Rest Homes and Alzheimer's patients. He was with me for parades, loved the Malls, and was with me 24/7 ... I guess you can see how we bonded, and NEVER tired of each other. Memories? Oh, zillions of them. When I reflect on some of them, yes, I cry. Even the most exciting and joyful times. I cry because I miss Riley.

It was not an easy decision to let him go. I prayed over it, discussed it with my Vet and finally I just knew today was the day. In the morning after his duties and breakfast (steak last night and steak for breakfast) we visited all of his friends here and finally his girlfriend, Maggie. We came home and he just looked at me and I could tell he was saying: "I have no more to give. Can I go home?" How, oh how could I say no.

As planned, Dr. Barry arrived and as I held him and loved him and kissed him and told him how much I love him, my Riley slipped from the
boundaries of this life to a life where I am certain he no longer is old. No more pain, no more medicine, no more aging. After his death one
of the first things I did was to take all of his medicine, pain pills and throw them into the trash saying: "Riley, never again will you need these. No more pain or suffering or crying out." Once again, I mentally hug my Riley, give him a kiss and say: "Good Night, my love, good night."

At this time I grieve, I have a deep pit in my stomach, the tears don't want to stop flowing and the exhaustion is great. I know that all of this will in time pass, but my memories of the most wonderful Riley in the world will be with me until he sees me one day and he along with Kelly One, Kelly Two, Nikki and all of my other friends will run across that Rainbow Bridge and never again shall we be separated. Thank you.
