Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Tank
3/1/2001 - 1/25/2017Tank was one-of-a-kind (well, all animals are). He was funny, playful, and loved to pretend he could care less about attention (he didn't fool many, but it was cute). People would stop their cars, tough looking men would melt when he walked by. And if someone didn't stop to tell him how cute he was, he would be quite offended. He did not much like other dogs, but grew to like our new dog, Daisy over the past month or so as she would look out for him - telling us when he needed help getting up and opening the door for him.

It really helps to remember the good days. His last week or so he seemed sad, but he had almost 16 years of happiness. We cannot thank Dr. Brad enough for helping us give him peace. Tank is sorely missed. We love you, little buddy.

Bootsie
11/1/2001 - 1/23/2017I layed my beloved son Bootsie to rest 1/23/17 on a Monday afternoon. He gave me 16yrs of unconditional love and happiness. He was diagnosed with feline nasal cancer almost a year ago. They gave me less than 9 mths. He gave me almost 12 mths. Bootsie had a very strong will to live. Boostie hated going to the vet clinic, but was so happy to just stay home and live out the rest of his life with me. So I treated him at home with non toxic therapy and supplements and catered to his every need from helping him up and down on the bed, hand feeding, providing oxygen etc.... It has been a long journey, but he was worth every minute. He let me know it was time. So I had to make a very hard decision to put him to rest. I contacted lap of love.shannon Dclermont, FloridaJanuary 26, 2017
Molly
3/13/2003 - 1/22/2017Molly was my loyal companion for almost 14 years. She used to love to run in circles playfully as I chased her. She would let me know when she needed my attention by nuzzling her nose through my arm. Anytime I was upset she was always there to lend a (very soft) ear. I will never forget her hound dog bark as she impatiently waited for her food. Or how she preferred to take her food "to go" (container and all) to her usual spot in the back yard. Molly would wake every morning, walk through the same neighbors yards and circle back home. I suppose it was her cup of coffee in the morning but it always made me smile. Loved how she passed me in the hall and would turn around to go the direction I was. I'll miss her grunt and wine when I returned home from being gone too long. I know any future dog I will have has some big paws to fill.
Rest In Peace Molly. I love you baby girl.

Bogart
2/3/2017 - 1/23/2017My beloved Bogart, you were my comfort when I grieved for loved ones lost, you were my buddy when I was lonely. You were truly "my daily sunshine". My world is a darker place without you, but it is brightened by happy memories of the joy you brought to my life.Marie MastropaoloDelray Beach, FloridaJanuary 24, 2017
Red
12/5/2006 - 1/5/2017I missed you yesterday, and I miss you today. I miss our daily times of telling each other secrets. You are always in my thoughts, your footprints on my heart. I will love you always.Teresa SheppardAiken, South CarolinaJanuary 24, 2017
Xavier
7/7/1999 - 1/5/2017This is Xavier, my handsome gentleman and longtime companion. I adopted him and his calico sister, Lorelei, when they were kittens. A coworker's brother's cat, Thuggy, had a litter, and my cat-hating roommate had just moved out, so I was excited to get a little friend. Of course, once we got to the basement where all the mewling critters were stumbling around, my one kitten became two, and the friend who had come with me left with one of their siblings, Gary.

Xavier is the last of this threesome, and he was very close to my heart. I swore to myself that I would give him the most peaceful, least painful end-of-life that I could, and I feel like I did that, which is very comforting.

Kisses
11/24/2001 - 1/19/2017It is with a heavy heart that we made the decision to have our little sweet kisses put to rest. Our hearts have been broken. She was our little baby girl and our house is so empty without her. I have peace knowing she has crossed the rainbow bridge and is playing is sunny warm catnip fields waiting for us to be reunited again. She is no longer in pain and may she find joy again with God and rest her precious soul. The stars will shine a little brighter now that she is amongst them.Phil HatleyOakland, MichiganJanuary 23, 2017
Sierra
10/22/2003 - 9/17/2016Sierra was my world, my companion, my biggest supporter, and most of all - my best friend. She helped me grow up into the person I am today, and for that, I will be forever grateful.

Sierra had the sweetest and most loving personality. She always had a way to uplift anyones spirits. She was smart. She was caring. She was beautiful.

Until the moment she left our side, she always wanted to play. She never lost her spark. Even growing old, she never aged, she always acted like a puppy. She would never be able to greet you at the door without a toy. Most of all she loved her pool. She would light up when you ask her if she would want to go swimming. She would run around the house as fast as she could to locate her pool toy. Once she found it, she would flaunt that toy by swinging it back and forth in her mouth. Then of course, you have to chase her to get it! There was never a better highlight to her day than being able to jump into her pool. Our summer pool parties just won’t be the same without you, kiddo!

She was always the life of the party. She loved everyone. She had so many great people in her life throughout the years. She has touched everyone in some way, and at some point has given us all joy.

Sierra - When I think of you, I can’t help but smile. You have given me so many laughs, memories, and the gift of your love for a lifetime. There will never be a day, where I won’t thank God for letting me be the lucky one to call you mine. Until we meet again, your Momma misses you and loves you dearly. XOXO.

Fievel knowles
8/1/2001 - 1/18/2017My beloved Fievel,
I love you more than you will ever know, and I will carry you with me in my heart every day for the rest of my life. I miss you desperately. It’s been a difficult few days without you. We shared 15.5 beautiful years in this world together. You were born in August 2001. I got you in the fall when I was 21 years old, which feels like another lifetime ago. You were absolutely the most adorable little kitty I have ever seen. Your beautiful green, expressive eyes. Your white patch on your chest and your white sock feet. Your black marks like an eye mask. And your tabby gray striping with hints of a little brown and white, but mostly all gray. And so vocal - you picked me out and asked me to take you home.
When I tried to name you, I thought about the animal personification of who I am – and it was Fievel. From An American Tale, one of my favorite movies in my childhood about a sweet little mouse finding his way in the world. There’s that song “Somewhere Out There” in it, which I can’t even begin to think about now it would make me so sad. You were shy as a little mouse too and so cute with those innocent eyes exploring the world, just like your momma. So you became Fievel. Fievel Knowles. You became my family. For 15.5 years, and for the rest of my life in my heart.
We lived together just the two of us for 10 years, all through my 20's, and you helped me live alone for the first time as a young woman and navigate my way through the world. You gave me daily comfort and security and love and warmth and smiles and everything I needed to grow into my womanhood. I could be “alone” without truly being alone, because you were with me.
When I was sick, or not feeling well with my health issues, which you had too, you would bring me your blue multi-colored string, which was your prized possession. You loved that string and always kept it by your food bowl. I never understood what it meant, but I knew you loved it and when you brought it to me it meant you were offering all you had. Thank you. Mommy had to wash it, but I am going to keep it forever because of how much you loved it. I will take good care of it for you and it will be one of my favorite possessions too.
Uncle says he will always miss you as his Pupper and that he loved the time you two spent together. You two had 8 years together, and 5.5 years of us three sharing a home as a little family. He was always amazed at how handsome and loving you were. You are sorely missed by him. He loves you and will never forget you. He liked rubbing your chin and did a better job than Mommy at that. He remembers when he woke up from anesthesia during the snowstorm and you were on his bed taking care of him. He loved watching you watch the birds and squirrels outside. He will always think of you when he sees a Christmas tree. He had a special bond and you will always have a special place in his heart. He is the one who came up with special toys for you, special nicknames, and dubbed things like the “chirp” and the “pupper ducky,” which was when you would perch yourself somewhere with your front paws tucked neatly underneath you like a little rubber ducky.
I don’t understand much about life and death, and your passing fills me with so many existential questions and fears and hopes and sadness and wondering and so much I will never be able to answer. But I have felt the presence of God even in the loss and while I don’t know what happens after we die, I believe God is love, and I believe heaven is about love reunited.
My beloved Fievel, I will love you forever. Uncle will love you forever. Your grandparents and Aunt Clair and everyone who knew you will love you forever. Death is so scary and sad, but those we love live on in our hearts and become part of our souls, which are shaped by our life experiences. My hope and prayer is that I see you again. I love you so much, always in all ways.
