Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
11/10/2008Donner affectionately known as Donner Puppy was so small when we got him he fit in your hand. His parents were raise on a farm. He got his name because Christmas was right around the corner so he was named after one of Santa’s reindeer. He grew fast and had some bad habits although they were cute. He would rip a paper towel to shreds in a second and dare you to pick it up, he ate shoes, money, and he loved to grab your pant leg as you walked by. While we tried to break these habits (it never worked) we realized quick it was just his way of playing or getting your attention because you weren’t talking to him or petting him. His bark was loud and he tended to scare people but his demeanor was quite the opposite.
He was a great friend, good listener to problems of the day, always was excited to see you even if you were only gone 5 minutes. He never wanted left out and always made you feel good inside. It’s only been 1 day and it’s empty around this house. We are coping as best we can and have many supporters out there. Cards and pictures and well wishes have been wonderful.

3/10/2020 - 4/6/2020There are no words to express how much we loved our Lab Hachi. He was my sons first dog. My daughters reading buddy and my running partner for the last 10 years. He never grew up and had the face and personality of a puppy. He loved to eat socks, stuffed animals and dog bones. He loved to fetch the tennis ball over and over again. He brightened my day everyday of his life. He never stopped trying to make us happy even until the very end he was wagging his tail. Here is a poem that makes me feel better about seeing him someday again.....
“ I explained to St. Peter,
I’d rather stay here,
Outside the pearly gate.
I won’t be a nuisance,
I won’t even bark,
I’ll be very patient and wait.
I’ll be here, chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I’d miss you so much, if I went in alone,
It wouldn’t be heaven for me

7/12/2001 - 4/5/2020Mr. Sydney J. Meowmer, known simply as Meowmer to his friends, was a mighty Maine Coon with a big heart and a bit of an edge. He loved to meet new people and was always very talkative, thus his name. Though a sweet cat at heart, he would let you know when you crossed a line, often resulting in the need for a bandage. He loved playing in water, drinking from a glass and conversing with his human friends. In his last couple of years, he became a mellow lap cat content to reap the rewards of a long life well lived. He passed gently surrounded by his human and cat friends.Robert BellvilleAustin, TexasApril 7, 2020

Cozmo Leonelli Amoroso
1/4/2005 - 4/4/2020My Dear Cozmo,
Here is a poem that I wrote several years ago to thank him. I knew one day he would have to go.

He’s my rock.
He stood by me
When he looked at me he knew
My heart was broken in two
Long walks alone in the rain, the snow up to my knees.
Can you tell me loving creature why I cry
The loneliness I feel you seem to absorb with every mile
Through the woods ...quiet
The word Dog is God spelled backwards
I know why
He saved my soul without a word
Hope he gave me
My silent friend
Your eyes mirror our Lord my friend
I love you my child ...this will not be the end of our journey.

11/6/2014 - 4/5/2020Mackey was the sweetest boy EVER! He was so easygoing and fiercely loyal. We got Mackey about a month after we got married and he transitioned with us through an apartment, a town home, our first home, two surgeries, a pregnancy, a move to Indiana, infancy, toddlerhood, and all of the ups and downs in between.

Mackey was diagnosed with lymphoma on 1/28/2020. Shortly after, we had him enrolled in a clinical trial at Purdue for the CHOP protocol. He initially responded very well, demonstrating a decrease in size of his lymph nodes. However, one day, we noticed his lymph nodes were bigger. We weren't even halfway through the CHOP protocol. We tried a couple other drugs, but each one seemed to work less than the previous. On Friday of this past week, Mackey seemed tired. Not in pain, but just tired. His lymph nodes were the biggest we'd seen them, but he was still acting okay. On Saturday, everything changed. He was panting aggressively with ANY type of movement and coughed whenever he ate. He tried to jump up on our bed, a task he had done millions of times over the past 5 years, and failed. He fell backward onto the floor and I could tell he had lost his fight. He was restless and anxious and I couldn't do anything to help him.

So, on Sunday, April 5th, Dr. Amy came to our house to give our sweet baby some relief. To set him free from his cancer and from his suffering. He fought until the very end and then died a dignified, peaceful death in the presence of the people who loved him most.

Mackey- run free, my sweet boy. We will never forget you and can't wait to meet you at the rainbow bridge. Thank you, my loyal companion. You were everything right with this life.
