12/22/2012 - 9/5/2020"I will meet you In the Light"

I know that you can't see me,
but trust me I am right here.
Although I am up in heaven,
my love for you stays near.

so often I see you crying,
many time you call my name
I want so much to lick you face
and ease some of your pain.

I wish that I could make you see
that heaven indeed is real.
If you could see me run and play
how much better you would feel.

But our loving God has promised me
that when the time is right,
you'll step out of the darkness and meet me in the light.

Junior
3/3/2005 - 9/5/2020It is with sad news, and a very heavy heart that Junior, our beloved four-legged family member of almost 16 years, we have decided it was time for him to cross the rainbow bridge.

It was time for him to leave us as he has had enough time to guide us, love us and watch us grow.

When we had rescued Junior out of a bird cage, stuffed with 13 of his other brothers and sisters from the hot Florida sun, we had not even imagined that he would be with us for most of our adult lives.

At just four weeks old bringing him home, was the start of a love affair that neither one of us knew could exist. He was always by our side, taking him everywhere we went and enjoying life to the fullest.

Mickey and I being just young “kids” ourselves, we did not know how to manage life yet, let alone a dog to care for. Sure, you may think….meh, a dog…..easy peasy….not in the slightest. We had times where we did not even have enough money to feed us, let alone a dog. But when it came down to it, Mickey and I would share a $2.00 meal and spend the $8 for dog food for him.

Time went on as we enjoyed our time with Junior, taking him to the local water hole, the beach, go for bye-bye rides, playing frisbee, he was even great at fetch! Life could not have gotten any better. Junior was growing up with us, with no other thought in the world that phased us.

It was then, Junior at a mere two and a half years old, our family grew. We brought into this world a tiny human named Emily. I don’t think he really knew what to do with her, he sniffed her and was curious to see what this tiny human was all about, he loved her with all his being.

Emily and he became the best of buds, as she grew, so did he. This is it! Junior finally thought, this tiny human can do things with me! And that she did, she was throwing any food she had on her highchair table to him for his “treats”. She would throw balls for him to fetch, mind you she could only throw it a foot in front of her, and Junior would excitedly fetch it and bring it back for her to do it over and over again. Junior didn’t care how far it went, he just loved her.

Emily being at walking age things got crazier. She would taunt him and run away with his favorite toys, he chased her and next thing you know the house would be tore up from the two of them destroying everything in their paths playing keep away. I would cook dinners and Junior kept her occupied playing anything they could, even dress up sometimes….and make up. Junior has wound up with mascara and pink nails more than a few times.

Life was passing by and next thing we knew, we were moving to Oklahoma to help take care of family. Junior experienced snow, he learned what chickens were, he never heard a donkey before and thought our horse was scary. Junior watched Emily grow into an amazing softball player…but this time he couldn’t catch those balls she was throwing.

His most favorite thing in Oklahoma was our pool, I truly believe that Junior and Emily were both born part fish. The both of them would spend hours and hours everyday swimming, running and jumping in the pool together, diving to the bottom of the pool for toys (yes Junior could dive) and basking in the sun to warm up and dry off.

With Junior being the only four legged inside animal his whole life, we found another dog to rescue. We named her Letty, boy was she a spitfire! Junior being almost 12 years old, he wasn’t so sure about having a youngin around. But alas, he loved her too.

We spent ten years in Oklahoma and after family passing, we wanted to go back home to Florida. Off we go again, packed up and moved, but this time he was older, almost 13 years older. I’m not sure if he was ready to start all over again, but he was faithful and by our side he stayed. Letty came too and helped Junior with moving and ensured him that everything was going to be alright.

As the last few years has gone by, Junior’s age was starting to reflect on the things he loved to do most. His greetings when we came home weren’t as quick as they used to be. No matter how tired he was, he still used every bit of strength to get up and come see us when we came home, but Mom….I’m tired. His love of fetch was reversed, this time we could only throw the ball a foot for him, but Mom…I’m tired. He couldn’t swim anymore and the phrase “wanna go swimming!” didn’t matter, but Mom…I’m tired. He couldn’t hop on the bed in the middle of the night and cuddle when he wanted to, but Mom…..I’m tired.

He was tired.

Junior watched so many things in his almost 16 years of life. He watched Emily come home from the hospital all the way to celebrating her 13th birthday. He moved to two different states, one of them twice. He watched Mickey and I grow into our careers. He watched us grow and develop into a family that we are today, and we couldn’t have done it without him.

The times has come, and it wasn’t easy for any of us to make this decision. We knew that we were only holding on for ourselves, not easy to let go of something you have loved for so many years.

But he was tired.

We aren’t sure how our lives will be without him; we aren’t sure how he has been with us through all of our milestones in life if anything will be the same anymore.

Letty will have a hard time, she is a very emotional girl, she doesn’t go to potty without making sure he comes too, she patiently waits for him on everything he does…just to make sure he is alright. She will miss their tug of wars they did together and the snuggles she would get when she would lay next to him.

I’m sure with time that our hearts will heal, but our memories will never fade.

Getting up in the morning to say goodbye one last time on my way to work was hard.
Coming home from work to say hello one last time hard.
Going to bed and kissing you goodnight one last time was hard.
Waking up and greeting you good mornings one last time was hard.
Emily saying goodbye one last time before going to school was hard.

“We lost a special friend today the kind you can’t replace
and looking at his empty bed we can still see his beautiful face.
I know he’s in a special place our Lord has for such friends,
where meadows, fields & flowers help make them strong and whole again.
I know he’s watching over us and he’ll be with us when we cry,
so with one more kiss on his beloved head, we told our friend goodbye.”

Forever with us, we will always love you Junior. Goodbye best friend.

Finnegan
3/17/2007 - 9/6/2020My dear Finnegan, the best boy that ever could be, departed this world on Sunday, September 6, 2020. Finn was the embodiment of all things wonderful about dogs--loyal, loving, empathic and trusting, always eager to please. He was by my side for the last thirteen years, through bright times and dark times, through a multitude of life transitions, as a constant source of comfort and companionship.

He was my boy, and I loved him dearly. I am so, so grateful for the time we spent together.

Malcolm
10/25/2011 - 9/6/2020We are heart broken to lose our beloved Malcolm. He was the greatest dog for us, and transformed our lives for the better, and we will be forever grateful for his love. What a blessing to find a dog like Malcolm. Although the pain of losing him is so great right now, the memories of love and fun will soon overshadow the heartbreak. We will love you forever and ever Malcolm.

Love,
Laura, John, Miles & Grant

Coleman
2/20/2009 - 9/6/2020Today we had to say good bye to our awesome guy. He was a goofball from the beginning and was scared of his own shadow. He had been suffering from Degenerative Myelopathy now for almost 3 years. He was a trooper the whole time, spent most of his last year laying on his bed 24/7 with us carrying him from the living room to the bedroom, and occasionally wheeling him around the Neighborhood in the beach wagon. He will be missed for sure, but a least now he is on the other side of the rainbow bridge with, Steve, Nannette, Warren, and Samantha and able to run and play again. My heart is broken. Dr. Shantelle from Lap of Love did an amazing job coming out to the house in helping Coleman Trent-Turner to the other side.Neville TurnerSaint Petersburg, FloridaSeptember 7, 2020
Nancy
11/25/2010 - 8/31/2020Nancy was our first cat and the only one that was worthy of... "that's my girl!" whenever she was greeted. We said goodbye to our beautiful Nancy unexpectedly a week ago today, in her favorite spot in the screened patio, surrounded by her "kittens". We will miss seeing her waiting patiently for dinner, as well as watching her nap in the afternoon sun on a pillow in the porch. Nancy was an important member of our family and will be missed sorely.Tom & Shell SammetOviedo, FloridaSeptember 7, 2020

Harvey
1/17/2009 - 9/5/2020We got Harvey when my wife had baby fever (he held her off for 4 years). He was great and had two older brothers Rowdy (lab) Duncan (cocker). He was the baby, but they were a pack. He brought us joy and always greeted us at the door. His favorite thing to do was roll a ball back and forth and play fetch. Even with the addition of three children and another lab puppy he was so much fun to be around. He kept his spirit even after he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Up until his final moments we were able to play ball with him even as he struggled to breath. It was his time and we had a wonderful day with Harvey. We all miss you so much buddy. We will see you at the rainbow bridge. We love you.Charlotte, North CarolinaSeptember 7, 2020
