Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Mono
1/6/2001 - 9/30/2017Our sweet little angel, Mono came Into our lives 16 years ago. From the very first day, he brought so much joy and happiness to all of our family! We will miss you every second of every day! We will never forget those beautiful black eyes that radiated pure love! We will never forget your passion for any type of food in the world (except for scallops), we will never forget the fact that you loved tickles on your belly and we had to do it for hours! You were our best friend, our loyal companion, a caring brother, an amazing nephew, and sweetest son!!
We will love you forever into eternity!!

With lots of love,
Both of your mommies, daddy, Tita, aunt Monica, aunt Diana, Jazzy, and uncle Marcelo.

Travis
6/5/2003 - 9/25/2017My precious Travey,
I love you so very, very much and I hope you always felt that. You were a perfect dog. You were my walking buddy. You were my southern gentleman - you never failed to always allow me into the house before you came in. You are so kind and gentle.
You'll be missed by many - Dad, Caylin, Lee, Joe, Campbell, Dee Dee - who always had you smelling like a flower after being groomed, and Gina - your pet nanny. But I'll miss you the most - my sweet man, and will forever love you.
- Mom

Gambit
11/23/2005 - 9/29/2017Every April, the cherry blossom trees explode in color and gentle beauty. The fragile leaves are thick on the tree branches, and colorful – for a week or 10 days. As suddenly as they appear, they are gone.

The Japanese people see the cherry blossoms as a metaphor for life – beautiful, fragile, and fleeting.

In America, we note the cherry blossoms blooming as a sign of the emerging spring. The most famous, in Washington D.C., are viewed and appreciated by tens of thousands of people every year. However, it doesn’t seem we slow our busy lives to appreciate the people in our lives.

In Japan, people celebrate the cherry blossoms with picnics under the trees, sharing food and drink, and spending time appreciating family and friends as pink leaves gently float in the air around them.

A loved pet provides us much the same opportunity. The loss of a loved pet brings to mind a reminder of the brief time we actually have together; and reinforces in us that we ought not take our relationships and our loved ones, for granted.

On 29 September 2017, our doggy Gambit, passed away. He had a peaceful passing, at home, surrounded by those who loved him.

He filled a void for Rachiel and I, as we adapted to a life with a home recently vacated by our adult children. He gave us companionship and love. He embodied the phrase “Love is blind,” but he never let his lack of sight slow him down. He wanted nothing more than to be part of our “pack.” He kept watch over Rachiel all day, everyday – patrolling the house while she went about her day. Once Greg returned home, he turned over the "watch" and headed for his bed...seemingly asleep, but often responding to something only he was aware of. Always vigilant.

He picked through his food - eating the “good” stuff, spitting the rest to the side. He did his best to interrupt Greg mowing the backyard – laying in the grass or dropping a landmine here and there. He loved his chew toys, never touched our shoes or our furniture, but he tried to chew his way out of the house a couple of times. He snored, he farted, he loved to run - in his younger days.

He was a wonderful dog – and his final gift to me was to teach me again, not to take the people in my life for granted.

Mia
3/11/2014 - 10/11/2016I love you Mia. I miss you everyday; you were such a sweet little girl and I am so sorry I couldn't save you. I honestly didn't think it was you who got hit by that car. I was right there on my way to my new job, when the women were draping the towel over the box. I want you to know that I did pull over to see I everything was okay, but when I saw the time, I had to be at work in 10 minutes and they seemed to have everything under control. I never guessed it was you and if I would have arrived a few minutes earlier I would have known because I would have seen you. Only if would have rolled down my window, I could have been there for you and I am so sorry. I failed. I failed to protect you as I promised and I will never forgive myself for that. Baby Mia, please forgive me. I love you and you will always be in my heart and love never dies. <3Gabriella GangalaParsippany, New JerseyOctober 1, 2017

Cosmo
Cosmo was such an amazing pet to my family. She was the sweetest and so tolerable of our son. She was a part of our family for 14 years. I went to see her at the pound in Virginia when I was told she was there the longest and was running out of time to find a home. Their were no interests in this sweet dog. I was amazed because she was one of a kind. I was not able to walk away from her so I applied for her. Her, my 6 month old pup bailey, my boyfriend at the time (later became my husband) and I shared a little 600 square foot apartment. All four of us shared a full size bed. Cosmo and Bailey were soul sisters. They loved each other. When Bailey passed away Cosmo was never the same. Now the two of them get to run together in heaven.Nikki StockerYork, PennsylvaniaOctober 1, 2017
Nana
9/15/2005 - 9/29/2017My Nana gained her angel wings and crossed over to the rainbow bridge at 2pm. I never knew how much you can love a dog like I loved Nana. She was my everything and my heart is broken into pieces. I've never cried as much as I cried in the last few days but I already let her suffer long enough. I have no regrets helping her pass. My only regret is I didn't do it sooner.

I love you so much Nana. I miss you. I miss your sass, wiggle butt, your smell, your warmth, and your companionship. You were so loved by so many. We are all going to miss you (maybe not the mailman) and can't wait to see you in heaven again. Meet me at the gates like you greeted me from work everyday. I look forward to the day I can squeeze you and kiss you forever.

Love your mom, Cathy, grandma, and your brother, Mumu.

Kaia
9/13/2003 - 9/29/2017Kaia was the sweetest, most loving and loyal best friend anyone could ask for. She loved us unconditionally , and I'll never forget her. She was truly my biggest fan, and I'll miss her forever, but will also never forget our favorite place,the beach, and all the love we shared. She is with my dad now, so I know she's in the best of hands because he also loved her with all his heart and soul💕💙Nancy MorigeratoRevere, MassachusettsSeptember 30, 2017
Briget
9/11/2003 - 9/28/2017Briget was the sweetest little girl you would ever want to meet as well as her Sister GiGi . Everyone that has come in contact with them their groomers, their dog sitter, friends, even total strangers would make a point to say they are 2 little sweethearts.
Briget loved her ball so so much all the way to the end! The picture was taken only 4 days before her passing.

Briget was the world to me and she will be missed way more than anyone would ever know ! I've called them my 911 babies not the same year but the same month and day. I always felt that made them extra special !

I guess I will always question a bit some of the hard decisions that I had to make but I am totally confident that I did spare Briget any additional suffering and the eventual severe pain associated with the act of dieing that Dr. Erin so graciously reminded me of.

I knew I was not going to be able to take Briget to my Vet for this. I decided to let it happen at home where she would be where she loved to be instead but I was very concerned with how that would go and after sitting constantly by her side for her last 2 days of not eating and drinking and watching her suffer I questioned my decision. I decided to read as much as I could on the subject which eventually luckily led me to Dr. Erin of Lap of Love just in the nick of time.

Briget passed on so peacefully, not even a flinch at the hands of this so special Woman Dr. Erin. Thanks so so much !!!

PEOPLE SPREAD THE WORD OF DR. ERIN AND LAP OF LOVE !!!
I didn't know anything like this existed , no one I know knew , but everyone I know will now know!
Dr.Erin and Lap of Loves phone # is now saved in my phone and I know I will need her again in the near future for GiGi sadly but Dr. Erin will be the first # that I will dial !!!!

GODSPEED DR.ERIN !
GODSPEED AND REST IN PEACE MY DEAR BRIGET !

Hurley
1/16/2004 - 9/26/2017Hurley was the best dog (friend and brother) our family could have ever hoped for. He brought so much love and happiness to our home. Hurley's passing has left a huge hole in our hearts and a stifling silence in our home. He will be remembered for making all the lives he touched better. He will be forever missed and loved. We are so thankful for the nearly 14 years of loving, playful, and devoted companionship he gave to all of us. We love you HURLEY BOY!!!Scott PanfilSan Diego, CaliforniaSeptember 30, 2017
