Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
9/8/2003 - 2/15/2021Squeaky stole my heart the moment he was pulled from the box of 5 kittens with his little white spot on his nose. He could sit up on his back legs & have a little boxing match with me, just playing while he was king of the condo tower, would let you know when he had enough by hissing at you. About 15 months after Squeaky’s arrival, 10 months old Mr. Riley joined the family., who turned out to be the alpha cat, except when it came to his tower spot & joining us in bed, Riley had no chance there. Loved watching the two chase each other & playing in empty boxes. We lost Riley in May 2019, and it was amazing how much more calmer & lovable Squeaky was to us & more importantly to others. Bedtime is the hardest part of losing Squeaky, he would either stand at attention till you were walking to bedroom, or meow loudly if not moving fast enough. Then would wait until we settled in before climbing up to get his head bumps from dad & my Scratching behind the ears until I was falling asleep. Miss that little body snuggling next to me! Miss you dearly my little guy, RIP❤️Corinne NoRochester Hills, MichiganFebruary 17, 2021
10/5/2008 - 1/26/2021It's been 3 weeks since we lost our best friend. We miss, love, and think about you everyday, Jojo. You lived 12 years by our side, literally. You were attached at the hip with us, but we were just as attached to you. You lived through the best days and worst days with us, always keeping us company and helping us push through the hard times. You were so spoiled and everyone knew it. You would get the whole couch to yourself, and the whole bed while leaving us with a tiny corner to curl up in. You got your own plate during dinners and your own blanket and pillows so you could rest afterwards. You were the king of every house you entered. You had such a personality that shone through the way you loved to cuddle, get kisses and hugs, the way you loved to be tucked in, and how you gave kisses and licked away tears. You had the funniest underbite and cutest front teeth that always made us laugh and reminded us how cute you are. You had extremely long eyelashes and popcorn feets and the cutest little ears that reminded us of batman. You were and are a beautiful soul inside and out. You could turn our bad days completely around as soon as we came home to you wagging your tail, bring us toys, constantly pawing at us until we petted you. You made us feel so needed during thunderstorms when we would build you forts in the closet and hold you close to remind you you would always be safe with us.

It will take time for us to adjust to life here without you. We keep looking for you everywhere and not a day goes by that we don't talk about you and how different home feels without you. We look for you on the couch, our beds, the car, we wait to hear the sound of your little claws tapping around the floor, to hear you howl at the passing ambulances, to hear you bark when the doorbell rings...everything here will always remind us of you. But we know that though you are no longer here physically, you live in our hearts.

It is crazy that since you've been gone, it has not stopped snowing. You spent your last day playing in the snow and got to say goodbye in the comfort of your own bed and your home, surrounded by people you loved and who loved you immensely. To know you went peacefully is all we could ask for. You were tucked into a purple blanket and Dr. Tyler told us that purple was the color of royalty, which was so fitting for you. You were our king. You were treated like royalty from the beginning until the very end. The following day, the sky and the sunset were purple and we felt peace knowing that you were now resting. We know that wherever you are, you are chasing pigeons, squirrels, and bunnies, getting cuddles, and continuing to protect and watch over your family who misses you so much. We will always think of you a little extra and miss you even more on snowy days and when we see purple skies.

Thank you for teaching us what true unconditional love is. When the time comes that we meet again, we know that you will be there to greet us with a wagging tail and all the hugs and kisses. We love you more than words can explain and we will miss you for the rest of our lives. Thank you for the wonderful memories and for being the most perfect handsome boy you could be. You will forever be our king, Joe. <3

2/1/2003 - 2/10/2021Oh Laverne, I don’t even know where to begin. It has taken me nearly a week to even open up this memorial info and entertain sharing our story.

I can say without a doubt that you were the greatest companion a girl could have ever asked for. I was so incredibly blessed to have found you and honored to have been your mom. The past almost 7 years have been incredible. I only wish I had known you for your full almost 18 years on this earth. Regardless of the time, it’s never enough and I will rely on our beautiful memories, numerous photos and videos and feel your love every time the sun is shining.

You were such a sweet and easy cat! You had the softest fur and beautiful green eyes. You liked Fancy Feast pate, Temptations chicken treats, your pet water fountain, laser and catnip filled toys. You loved warm spaces, the neighborhood squirrels (notably Squiggy), Burts Bees chapstick, moved mountains to find a place in the sun, enjoyed sleepovers at grandma’s and never turned down an opportunity for lap time and naps with mom. You disliked the vacuum cleaner, taking pills and visitors in our home.

My absolute favorite part of the day was coming home to you. Oh how I miss our routines. The house is incredibly quiet, extremely lonely and will never be quite the same. Your HCM diagnosis one year ago was certainly a blow. I told your cardiologist that my #1 goal was to give us quality time together and I pray that the year we had together, despite your medication regimen, was exactly that, a life filled with love and compassion.

I will move through these next days, weeks and months hoping that I made good decisions. I promise you every decision was made with an abundance of love.

Laverne/LuLu/Chicken Little, I miss you so much! I hope you are resting easy, surrounded by warmth, treats and my pets of past.

We would like to thank everyone for the ongoing love and support over the years: Grandma, Sophia and her parents, Dr. Montgomery & the wonderful staff at Levan Rd Vet, Dr. DeSana of Vet Cardiology Consultants, AEC Novi for her emergency care, Dr. Katie W. for helping guide her care those final days, my amazingly supportive friends and colleagues at MM for covering my shifts so that we could spend some amazing days together, our family, friends and a special thanks to Kate, who helped care for Laverne through the years so that her mom could travel.
And lastly, to Lap of Love and Faithful Companion for providing these amazing services that make such difficult decisions a little easier and who recognize that our furry companions are family.

7/16/2008 - 2/15/2021Ice was the most special special sweet little girl you could have ever met. EVERYONE who ever met her recognized this. We are devastated, heartbroken and so very very lost. My little hero put up a valiant fight against cancer. God took her battle gear from her and replaced it with a beautiful shiny pair of Angel wings. She will wear them well.... I know this because she was already an Angel on earth :). The pain is unbearable but knowing that we WILL see her again brings us peace. Shine bright my sweet Angel and we look forward to you running to us when we are reunited! We love you forever and miss you every second of every day. XOXO my sweet girl.Lynne RodinoChino Hills, CaliforniaFebruary 17, 2021
Lomas ‘lomey’
11/11/2008 - 2/15/2021Lomey is my soul mate. He made my life worth living. We spent every moment together and I shared all my deepest thoughts and feeling with him. We had a special bond that nobody but us would ever understand. We had our own way of communicating with each other, our own language. I understood all his needs and everything he said, and same went for him with me. We had such a special bond that I’ve never experienced with anyone or any dog before. It’s almost like we were destined to be together on this planet and it was planned in the stars. We knew each other on a deep level like from another lifetime. I can’t explain it. Only we understand. Lomey was not a dog to me. We shared a deep connect and bond and I still feel like our souls are connected.

Both of us each suffered trauma in our lives and found each other at the right time. He was my support and I was his. We spent every minute together. I didn’t want to be with anyone else and neither did he. We lived in our own little Lomey and Tanya world. He went everywhere with me. He was my best friend, my other half, my soul mate, and the love of my life. Since I’m unable to have children of my own and decided not to get married. Lomey was like my common law husband. We created our own little unconventional family with dogs. I’m so grateful and honored he was in my life. I wouldn’t change it for the world. Lomey is a big loss and I have giant hole in my heart. A piece of me is missing. We were meant to be in this life together for a reason. I can’t explain this bond we had. It’s rare. I have and had other dogs and in the past, but never this type of connection. I have a hole in my heart and lost a piece of my soul that day he left. He truly was/is my soul mate.

1/12/2003 - 2/15/2021Pippin (also known as Togo after the Disney movie) was 18 years old when he passed. He was part of our family since he was 3 months old. In his younger years he was truly a "holy terrier!" When I adopted him I ran a 501(c)3 cat rescue and I also had four other (very large) Pippin was the little man on the block. He always acted like a big dog. One of my favorite memories of him is his desire to be one of the "big dogs" and he would jump up on the coffee table just to be at their height. Too funny! He was a typical fearless terrier. He a mutt...a terrier mutt.
Over the years, the other, larger dogs, crossed the Rainbow Bridge and then there was just Pippin left. He mellowed and greyed in his older years. He lost his hearing. But he didn't lose his love of life. He was always eager to go for many walks, play chase around the island, or just randomly do zoomies around the living room.
In the end, he had many health issues that we struggled to treat. We truly believe we gave him the best life but as good pet stewards, our job is to ensure that he is happy and healthy. We struggled with making that most difficult decision. At the time, we were unaware of Lap of Love; a friend recommended that we call them. I am so glad I did.
Dr. Amanda was amazing! I can say without hesitation that Pippin's last moments were free of stress and free of fear. He was surrounded by his mom and dad and by an angel who helped make sure that his last moments were full of love and tenderness.

12/29/2004 - 2/16/2021To the best companion and friend for the last 16 years... you were there for some really tough times and always knew when I needed a bit of extra love. I will miss you everyday and I hope you are now eating all your favorite snacks and all you can eat bacon!!Michelle CasanovaOrlando, FloridaFebruary 16, 2021
