Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Cally
5/5/2002 - 11/7/2015Dear Cally,
We will always have you in our hearts. We miss you so very much already. We were blessed to have you in our lives for so many years and now it is time to say good bye. We know you are in a better place, not feeling any pain and that gives us a little comfort. I hope you know that we loved you so very much. Love and kisses always, Mommy and Daddy.

Tate
3/24/2001 - 11/6/2015Tate left us peacefully on Friday. She was my constant companion and wonder dog, and I miss her greatly.




Tate was adopted from the Orange County, NC animal shelter in September 2003. When I found her there, she was in the "last" cage, scared of everything, and so skinny that you could see every bone in her body. She clearly had a very rough first few years of life before she ended up in the relative safety of the shelter. It would have been very easy to adopt a puppy that day, but something about her and her brown eyes said "I'm your dog, let's go home."




Over the next few years while I was in grad school, Tate's personality became a dim relection of her previous life. She became a well rounded, happy dog. She learned to sleep in the bed, clean whatever you left on your plate, and that a long car ride to the beach with your head out of the window was simply divine. Couches and car windows with drool marks became a normal part of life, and that was perfectly ok. She accompanied me most of the places I went except for class- the beach, work at the Chapel Hill airport, and the occasional bar. Once grad school was over, the hardest part of joining the working world was not a having to work for a living- it was having to be away from Tate for eight hours a day, five days a week.




Every six months or so Tate would entertain us with an escape act from the safety of the fenced yard at 707 East Franklin St or the beach house. She'd spend several hours on the run, always staying just far enough from you to never get caught. Even on the times where we'd lose sight of her, she would find her way back home. As she grew older the escapes attempts subsided and she would never get more than a few feet away, even off a leash.

Tate's companionship was unwavering and constant. She was always at the door when I came home, to greet me with a wagging tail and a few jumps to show her excitement. In her later years when she happily welcomed Liz, Maeby and Milly into her life, I would always find her inserting herself next to me on the couch or in the bed. I've had many dogs in my life- but she will always be known as "my" dog.

Until we meet again, I will have a lifetime of fond memories of Tate. I was very lucky to have such a special friend.

Neiko
12/23/2003 - 11/3/2015Shhhhhh, a little dog lies sleeping,
They say God works in mysterious ways.
Miracles can move through unrecognizable channels;
Light utilizing whatever physical tools are available
To open the eyes and unite the spirit of those with
No “apparent” connection.
Brought together for a moment in time and space
By a glance at a little smile and the shining eyes
Of a black, white, and gray tumbleweed of joy.
The physical vehicle is no more
but the light will not be extinguished.
Shhhhhh, a little dog lies sleeping.

Lady Sadie
6/24/1997 - 11/3/2015I used to tell Sadie she was my kitty soul mate. I felt such a deep bond with her after all these years. I am so grateful to this sweet little girl for all the happiness and love she gave us unconditionally. The house is quiet now and it's been really difficult to know that I won't see her when I come in the door or see her looking out the windows or find her sleeping in a sunspot, or playing with her catnip stuffed pollack, or on the couch next to me every night. I wish I could relive the last 18 years and love her all over again. I am comforted that she is without pain, and is reunited with her feline family and all my relatives that have gone before who loved all animals. They will keep an eye on Sadie until we meet on the Rainbow Bridge. Dear Sadie, we will love you and miss you forever my sweet little angel. I hope I gave you the good life that you deserved.Judy PotornyBatavia, IllinoisNovember 9, 2015

Junior
9/16/2004 - 10/10/2015Junior was a wonderful dog. We loved him soooooo much. He was truly a great companion and protector. Even though he was a big dog and was feared by most people, he was so lovable and gentle with his family. And he was friendable if you gave him the time. He was also great with other dogs. He was a very smart dog and always protected our family. He was loved by all who had the pleasure to know him.We
will miss him dearly.

Lucy
1/16/2002 - 7/30/2015We always teased that our Lucy was a cat trapped in a dog's body, but it was only because Lucy was her own person. (Yes, I said person, and I didn't use quotation marks. Our Lucy was people - as much as you or I.) She was smart, and she was opinionated, and if she didn't like what you had to say she would argue with you! We called it her "woo-woo", and she was known to stand right in front of someone and "woo-woo" at them for twenty minutes if necessary, until she got her way. But she was also loving, and brave and so full of personality and playful spunk that it was impossible not to love her. So when Lucy finally became so sick that her wonderful personality began to dim, we made the hardest choice that we have ever had to make in our lives. We chose to say goodbye to our beautiful little girl. And every day we remember our sweet, silly, snorting, pretty little "dooper-doo" and how deeply and permanently she touched our lives. And we will always be grateful that for 13 years we had her as our little girl. We love you, Loo-cheeee! You'll be in our hearts forever and always!Nichole EdwardsSterling Heights, MichiganNovember 8, 2015

Skylar
2/4/2004 - 11/4/2015Skylar was the best backpacking/hiking dog of all time. She loved playing with her blue ball, stealing toilet paper from the garbage, & howling to the piano. She was a loyal, compassionate best friend to the Dobyns family & we will never forget her. She was there for us during hard times, good times, holidays, & celebrations & we will continue to celebrate her life & all the laughs & joys that she brought us. We love you Skylar, Rest in peace always...Michael DobynsVilla Park, CaliforniaNovember 7, 2015
