Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
3/31/2007 - 3/28/2020Today I write the hardest lines ...

It was so hard to lose my best furry friend, my dear sweet Rascal. I did not know that this year would be our last year together. I wish you would have had an appetite during your last few days of life because I would have given you your favorite carb-full human foods: Parmesan goldfish, tortilla chips, bread, and what else you would have wanted. I am sometimes distraught with guilt over what I could have done to better assist you, I miss you everyday, I sleep with your "cuddle" blanket, and miss your daily & nightly kneading on my lap with your favorite "cuddle" blanket. Timmy tearfully said how you have been such a big part of our 12 year relationship and you loved Timmy just as much. I have played a video of you "talking" for your brothers, Piedy and Little Guy, to hear and they run over and wonder where you are.

You have been with me through so many of my life's goals I was able to accomplish, life changes I experienced, and brought me joy, kindness, and love to my heart and soul during some very difficult times in my life I had to learn to cope with. Now I have to learn to cope with you being physically gone from my life, my world, my being. It's in the quietness of these times, the heaviness that creeps in, the longingness of where have you gone to my handsome guy.

I was full of acceptance when you rapidly became sick because I knew I had to be and I thank you for giving me that last lesson to learn from you on how to cope and how to love fearlessly, especially during this time of grief, loss, and pandemic.

6/9/2004 - 5/12/2020Our beloved Misty crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 12th. She was a loving, carefree girl and loved running in the yard chasing birds and squirrels. She especially loved riding in the truck and camping along with wrestling with her fur siblings. She was always smiling and brought much joy into our lives. And while she was "daddy's girl", she always came to me for comfort when my husband was making noises with the lawn tractor or weed-eater. She will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace sweet baby! We love you!Lynn MitchellBaltimore, OhioMay 21, 2020
11/24/2006 - 5/17/2020To my sweet boy Toby, oh how we miss you, the house is just not the same without you here. We are so happy that you were apart of our family for the last 13 and a half years. Everyday that we spent with you was not only a joy but a blessing, you made our lives complete. Your friend miss Daisy is missing you terribly but we are giving her extra love from you. Though we are very sad that you have left us we know you are finally free from the pain and distress of your ailing body. We will hold on to the memories of you that are in every corner of the house and yard, you will never be forgotten my dear friend! We love you Toby xoxoRebecca NicolettiFreedom, PennsylvaniaMay 21, 2020
9/1/2004 - 5/19/2020My sweet, sweet boy I miss your snuggles and little hugs. I miss you snuggling up in bed with me at night. I miss you patiently waiting for breakfast in the morning as I made my coffee. You were the best kitty I’ve ever known. You were so gentle and quiet yet my home feels so unbelievably empty without you.. I keep thinking how lucky heaven is to have a handsome boy like you. You’ve been a part of our family for so long, we are so grateful for all the years we got to spending loving you. I will miss you forever.Aliecia DunnMaple Grove, MinnesotaMay 21, 2020
1/1/2005 - 5/18/2020Sweet Felix, I don't think there are enough words to describe how much you are missed. Your sweet face always brightened everyone up. Knowing that you're not hurting anymore is some comfort, but we will miss cuddling with you and your puffy buns. In your fifteen years, you were the best boy, my sweet boy. I miss you begging for food (and me giving in, you silly pup) and I miss you grumbling when I woke you up in the morning. I just miss everything about you! I hope you're able to chase tennis balls again, and run like the wind. Love you sweet pup.Angela StullPittsburgh, PennsylvaniaMay 20, 2020

9/16/2006 - 5/4/2020Oh Gingy, we miss you so much. You were such a wonderful little girl. The house is a bit empty now, but you were ill, and it was time. So painful to let you go. We look forward to seeing you and you Aunt Mattie, our 1st lab, at The Bridge. You were always happy to see us when we came from work, or other family outings. And oh boy, were you mischievous. For many years, you would find paper on the desk, and shred them....because we didn't take you with us. I'm sure of that. You were always sheepish when we got home after your little escapade. No matter, we loved you. We love you Gingy, and you gave us so much happiness. We'll see you again little girl, and we'll all be so happy.

Love you Gingy,

Warren, Maria, and Mike Van Wie

2/20/2008 - 5/18/2020To our dear Scarlett. You were the best dog in the world. From the moment we got you, you stole our hearts. You chewed up glasses, pens and ears off a bear rug and we did not really care. You ran circles and jumped off couches in the house., and we encouraged your bad behavior.You were very insistent about shaking everyone's hand with your left paw upon seeing them even if it was for the 100th time. It was a sad day when you lost that left leg to osteosarcoma on March 16 of this year, but you found other ways to make sure you greeted everyone properly. You never caused us any problems and never complained. I miss kissing that snout and miss seeing you with your fuzzy bone and watching you squint and bend your body in half while wagging your tail. Your sister Libby misses you very much and seems a little lost without you. We will never forget you and have lots of pictures of you in the house as well as the drawing of you and Libby. Your brothers Ben and Paul also miss you very much and are so sad that they could not be with you at the end. I know you are happy now since you are not in any pain, but it will take us a while to be happy again. Thanks for blessing our lives with your spirit and love. Love you forever. Your mom and dadClaudia FruinSALT LAKE CITY, UtahMay 20, 2020
2/23/2003 - 5/11/2020For our little Winnie girl - Thank you for sharing your life with us. You have touched our hearts and will always be loved. May the sun always shine on your sweet soul.Marcia BaldwinSt Petersburg, FloridaMay 20, 2020

Bruno Keister
12/18/2003 - 5/8/2020Bruno was 'the' dog for me. I will never have another dog like him. He was the sweetest boy and loved everyone. I miss the greetings at the door everyday I came home. I miss him sitting next to me and begging for kisses. He loved hanging out with and doing whatever we were doing. He just wanted to be with us. There wasnt a person that met him that didn't love him. He will be greatly missed.Derek KeisterGreenwood, IndianaMay 20, 2020
