Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Gemma
8/8/2007 - 10/15/2020I'll take my coffee black this morning -
The bitterness seems to suit my broken soul.
I am trying to put together the jagged jigsaw puzzle
of my heart, with a piece missing -
You.
No matter how I arrange the pieces, I cannot
make it whole.
I fill my days with thoughts of you
With images of you -
Doing things that I used to do -
with you, for you.
Tears well and spill -
silver tracks down my frozen cheeks
Under the cloak of darkness
I head out to walk -
where we walked.
I sleep, but do not rest -
missing the cadence of your breath.
The silence of this house pulses with
the missing familiar click of your steps
down the hallway and your welcoming
eyes at the door.
I look outside and see where you lay -
empty now, glistening in the rain.
My stomach churns - Is this how you felt?
Oh, I hope not -
The breeze brushes my shuttered eyes
and whispers "I am here . . . "
I smile for the first time in days
realizing that you are everywhere -
With me always now -

Roxy
10/14/2020 - 11/10/2020Our sweet, sassy Roxy. What can we say… You were the smallest one in our pack, but the one with the biggest personality. You bossed your much bigger brothers, like the Alpha dog you were. You were always vocal, making sure you and your siblings got fed, with multiple treats between meals and walked at the set times. You were the best big sister to all who joined our pack, siblings or fosters. You kept them all in line, showing them who was the boss, but we always could tell that there was a soft spot in your heart for all of them. Thank you for letting us be your humans, for being our guardian & protector. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and sweet kisses. We’re glad that you’re not struggling to breathe any more. Run freely sweet girl, sleep tight. Our hearts are bigger just from being loved by you. We love you so very much and will love you forever, Momma, Daddy and MaggieCarrie & Dan MedinaNaples, FloridaNovember 16, 2020
Alden
11/14/2020Alden...Aldie...baby boy. You are forever our first baby who will never leave our hearts. You have us so much love and happiness that even our short time with us will last us our whole lives. We will never forget your soft fur, your cuddles and your warming purrs and meows. We are sending you all the love in the world over that Rainbow Bridge ♥️Bryanna Novak-RichWest Hartford, ConnecticutNovember 16, 2020
Iggy
10/10/2010 - 11/4/2020Although the house is quiet and his bed is empty, Iggy will always be with our family in our hearts and in our memories. He is now free of the degenerative myelopathy that robbed him of control of his back legs. However, it never damped his spirit. He never missed telling us it was time to eat or time for a treat. He had the best last day a dog could have ... pancakes, a couple of new toys, a whole bag of treats, and one special last walk (which he did with complete enjoyment despite the difficulty he had walking). And while we have shed many tears and we miss him dearly, he is now and forever our "boxer angel."Annmarie CarneyPlaya Vista, CaliforniaNovember 15, 2020
Morgana
1/12/2005 - 11/13/2020Morgana passed away peacefully and quietly in my arms. She experienced no distress or discomfort. She graciously shared this home with me for over ten years. i will sorely miss the sound of her purring first thing every morning. It signaled the start of another day. The home we shared will feel painfully empty without her.Philip KellerTucson, ArizonaNovember 15, 2020
Rocky
12/1/2006 - 11/14/2020Our Rocky has been sick for a few years. He passed on 11/14/2020. I am so grateful for Lap of Love. The vet Dr. Glasser was amazing from the time she arrived until the time she left. She made the whole environment comfortable especially with her calm, soft voice. She spoke with us and Rocky the entire process. All of my animals were calm and quiet. We are thankful that Rocky had the opportunity to pass in the comfort of his home with his family. He will be greatly missed. Mommy , Daddy, Brooklyn 🐕, Rosie 🐕, Ajax 🐕, Dottie 🐕, Logan🐢, Mama 🐢, Roxy 🐢, Pork chop 🐖 and Simba🐈 love ❤️ you and will always miss you.Angelina SventoraHudson, FloridaNovember 15, 2020
Sophie Truman
3/6/2009 - 11/2/2020Sweet Sophie. We still hear your bark, wake up thinking you are still here, and look for you when we get home. We miss you terribly but know you are at peace and in good company in heaven. I am sure you are in charge up there too:)
We have comfort in knowing you lived your best life while with us, and will be forever blessed with out memories of the most pure love we were fortunate to experience. Sweet Sophie. Forever loved, and always remembered.

Jackson
12/15/2007 - 11/14/2020In loving memory of Jackson, aka The Bear. Jackson was a Newfoundland/Flat Coated Retriever mix. He loved to snug with his family, taking naps, finishing empty peanut butter jars, and munching on rawhides. He was the ever vigilant guardian of his house and his distinctive “boof” could be heard throughout the neighborhood.

Jackson passed in the comfort of his own bed, surrounded by his family’s love and affection. His family misses him so much already and the hole he leaves in their hearts is as big as the love and devotion he gave to them over the years.

Me-me
2/17/2003 - 11/13/2020🐾🌈Me-Me🐾🐾
While your Wings were ready, My heart was not 💔🐾
If love could’ve saved you, you would’ve lived forever 😔💔.
Frankly even forever would not have been long enough my Me-Me... Nearly 18 years of unconditional love, loyalty, comedy and unique connection. You taught me soooo many things, except how to live without you. I loved you everything in me. No expense was ever spared to ensure your comfort, joy, adventurous experiences and pampering. There will never be another you. So many people including myself never knew that they could love & care for an animal sooo much, until God sent you. Thank you for the love & the years babygirl; until we meet again on the other side of 🌈The Rainbow Bridge, know that Mommy loves & misses You💔😔🐾.Special Thank you to Dr. Sunday and Lap of Love for helping to ensure a peaceful transition.

Sargento The Big Cheese- Aka-sarge
4/3/2007 - 11/12/2020Going through some of my favorite photos of my doberMAN and love- Sargento the Big Cheese, aka Sarge. This morning we have made the decision as a family to send him off to the puppy palace in the sky. He is truly the best companion to my kids, husband, and especially me-always at my side. I will miss you my Sarge, but you’re forever in my heart. I have fallen in love with dobermans because of you! Rest In Peace, dear boy, and enjoy reuniting with your brothers, Gunner and Desi, and doing all the things that you love: car rides, dog parks, giant steaks, cool breezes, and fresh-cut grass, tennis balls, chasing cats and squirrels, and good kisses. Love you forever!Stephanie KillingsworthWest Palm Beach, FloridaNovember 14, 2020
