Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Harry
3/2/1999 - 12/1/2016“I loved my friend
He went away from me
There's nothing more to say
The poem ends,
Soft as it began-
I loved my friend.”

― Langston Hughes

Mia
11/25/2016Mia was my little lap kitty. She loved to sit with her Mama and help me read or watch TV. She was good comfort to me if I was sick or grumpy. When it was time for Rainbow Bridge, we were fortunate to have Lap of Love help her go in the comfort of home.Tina KrogdahlLexington, KentuckyDecember 12, 2016
Java
10/19/2003 - 12/1/2016RIP, my darling soulmate, Java, my loyalest, fiercest, vigilant defender & protector, my heart of hearts, my beauty and my truth. Your unconditional love brought me hope & light. Your zest for life brought me courage & passion. Your sweet gaze & soft fur brought me consolation. Your playful spunk brought me joy. My sweetest Java, I waited for you for 33 years, & you were worth every second because you will always be my perfect dog. Vichnaya PamyatDiane Worobec-SerratosCHICAGO, IllinoisDecember 12, 2016
Chance
3/10/2002 - 11/27/2016It is with utmost sadness and excruciating pain that I allowed my beloved Chance to pass over to Rainbow Bridge. My heart and soul are beyond shattered. No dog will ever be able to replace his loving soul, sweet smile, and tender heart.

I was blessed to have him pass at home with me in the comfort and safety he had come to know and love. He had my grand mother's rosary around his neck and he was able to pass on his special bed that he would get his bi-weekly massage treatments on.

It was increasingly difficult for him to stand near the end and would fall over after only a few steps. He was having seizures as well and his quality of life had diminished to such an extent that I had to make the ultimate decision to allow him to pass to Rainbow Bridge.

I will miss everything about him. I so wish he could have made it until Christmas as he enjoyed sporting his Christmas collar and leg bells. He was just so special. I want to thank Cathy and Pam from PSSR Sheltie rescue for allowing me to adopt Chance from out of state. To say this was a match made in heaven sums up our love and devotion we had for one another. I will never be the same without him. A part of my soul has died.

We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
We have you in our heart.

Lucy West
9/19/1999 - 12/9/2016Lucy lived longer than most and has been through so many of our lives adventures it will be hard without her here, however we know she is in a better place. What I would give to cuddle her one last time and kiss her little wet nose. We will cherish the memories of her chasing after bigger dogs, sleeping curled up next to us every night and begging for food at every opportunity. Lucy, my girl that was the toughest decision we have ever had to make but it was the right decision. You went so peacefully resting on my shoulder after eating a big steak. Not a day will go by that I won't want to reach for you and cuddle, but it will get less painful with time. We love you and will think about you constantly my little girl.Amanda and Abbie WestOverland park, KansasDecember 12, 2016

Amie
2/25/2007 - 10/30/2016Amie,

It was over seven years ago that you joined our family. That night you came home with us from Paws Inn Paradise, you and Buck played for hours. The two of you were inseparable, and from that moment on, our lives would be forever changed for the better.
On October 30, 2016, we had to say goodbye to you....our precious girl. We will miss you more than you can ever know, but your memory lives on in the hearts of all who loved you.

Rest easy girl. We will be reunited and, when we are, we will cross that rainbow bridge together.

Love,
Ron and Buck

Boo
7/20/2001 - 12/8/2016Boo was our first scardy cat. He spent the first few months of his life in a cage at the vet's office. Adopted as a Christmas surprise 15 years ago, Boo was so scared he spent his first few months days with us hiding under the Christmas tree before he was brave enough to slowly venture into the rest of the house.

This morning, Boo was hanging out near the tree as if to complete his circle of life. It wasn't one of his normal hang out areas. Later, Dr. Dawnetta confirmed that his search for new resting spots was one of the signs that his time was coming. The one thing we wanted to avoid was pain for Boo. I pray we achieved that goal for him.

Darla
2/6/2011 - 12/6/2016Darla came to us scared and insecure. The first night in our home she wouldn't let any of us get near her. We'd adopted her for the kids and it just wasn't working. Not to be deterred, through patience and love, my wife finally broke through her fear and helped her know that we just wanted to love her. One by one a bond was formed with each member of the family; that bond grew stronger and stronger each day. Mom was always for love, every morning she would get up from her sleeping spot to nuzzle mom, and oh how mom loved that. It was beautiful. Suzy, her oldest sister brought her a puppy to play with; Minnie her niece was always Darla's favorite four-legged playmate. They played loud and long and irritated everyone. Lucy, her youngest sister, was truly her litter mate. They were like two peas in a pod, always up for anything, running, playing, anything no matter how crazy. Olivia, her middle sister, would play or just hang out, or take her for runs, and running was her favorite game of all; she could run all day. Not to mention all her other adopted sisters: Laura, Bethany and so many more. And me, I got all the rest of Darla. She was pretty much my constant companion. Although it started a bit rocky, I feel so blessed that we got to have Darla, even for a short time. Unfortunately, her years were cut way too short by Kidney disease, and all of us are now left with a big hole in our heart. The night before she passed, she had a happy dream, wagging her tail and yipping. Thinking back, that dream was gold, it left me to hold on to the fact that we had made her happy. We'd all given her so much love and although she came to us scared and alone, she passed, in her house, her happy place, secure, happy, loved and adored.Nick BresciaChester, VirginiaDecember 9, 2016
Prince Eli
11/26/2014 - 12/6/2016Prince Eli was a very special puppy from the start. My son brought him home. Now this lil tiny baby boy just stole our hearts from the day he entered our lives. His eyes just got got to your heart. He was so cuddly, yet so full of puppy mischief. Eli has a big sister named Princess Sophie. Now Sophie scared Eli so much by her size strength and ability to intimidate him. It didn't take him long to "give it back to her" so to speak. He then earned the nickname Scrappy. Princess Sophie began to be the walking toy for Lil Prince to annoy and thrash. Those two became inseprable. They never did well apart. Actually none of us do well without the others. We we're all a team. Price Eli was just like the one who brought him into our lives, my son. So Eli became my STUBBORN GRANDSON. Headstrong n STUBBORN just like his daddy.
Prince Eli had a great life for he travelled all the time. He went more places than most humans go in their lifetime. He was a protector, a brother, , a friend, a lil lover and a A GREAT TEACHER. His eyes were definitely a window to his soul.
