Snorkels
05/04/2002 - 3/15/2017Here's the Eulogy my fiancé wrote about our precious baby Snorkels.

Snorkels, we miss you so much it hurts.

Gumbo
2/8/2004 - 3/7/2017Gumbo, aka Gump, Gumpster, Gumby, The Great Gumbolini, Gumpalufagus, Gumbotron, Pupsk, Mr. Gumbo, Mr. Bear, Gumbo Bear, Gumbino, Gumbo Bean, Furry Frijole, Speckle Head, Baby Gumbito, our dancing Rasta pup and the furriest, lovingest third of our family, is barking at squirrels and snuffling hay in some great beyond. His spirit will continue to herd Jeff and I into the same space so he can watch us, sniff intently at our knees to judge our comings and goings, rest his head on my laptop to remind me to get out and play, nuzzle us when he knows we're sad, dance between our legs when he knows we're happy, and dutifully chase away the mail truck to always ensure the safety of his pack. I miss him so desperately that I sometimes can't breathe, but am so happy that Jeff and I got to be his daddy and mommy for over 13 years. I love you so, so much, Gumbo Bear. There'll never be another pupsk like you.Cassandra HunterTukwila, WashingtonMarch 18, 2017
Peru
7/22/1996 - 3/7/2017Dear my baby angel Peru,

You were my angel sent from Heaven. You gave me reason to live, even at times I didn't want to. Life was challenging for us, the past 20 years we have been together. I am where I am today because I had you by my side. You were my reason to get up in the morning, you were my reason to breathe and you gave me strength to overcome challenges in life. Even when the world fell apart, even when others come and go, you were there by my side and protected me. My anchor. My angel.

I am so blessed to have had you as my daughter and it breaks my heart that you are not by my side. I will cherish every moment of the 20 years we spent together. I miss you very much but we will meet again.

I come home and call for you, but realize shortly after that you are no longer here. I picked up your ashes today. I cried and couldn't stop shaking. Peru, guess what. The lady who cremated you was so nice and to comfort me, she offered to give me a necklace with some of your ashes inside. She doesn't normally do this, but she said you were a sweet, pretty girl and that she would like for me to have the necklace with your ashes. I am wearing it now. I now have you with me at all times and I know that you will continue to look over me and protect me. I will never take this off and I will die, buried with your ashes.

There will be no other friend, daughter and family like you.

If my love could have made you live, then you would have lived forever. I love you more than anything in this world and I would die for you. Thank you for the beautiful journey you shared with me.

You and I are forever bound together and we will never separate. You are part of me and we will meet again. We will meet again and be right next to each other where we belong. We will talk next to each other like we always have been for the last 20 years.

Love,
Your Mommy of 20 years

Bowie
8/1/1999 - 3/6/2017Bowie, my dear friend and loving companion. I will miss you always, your love, affection, warm cuddles and loud singing meows. You have been with me through the best and worst of times, always a comforting presence. I wasn't ready to let you leave this world, but I knew it was time. You had grown so weak and you wouldn't touch your food anymore. But you were also a fighter and I could see that fire inside of you trying to keep carrying on despite how ill you had become. I knew it was time to let go my sweet angel. You will always be in my heart and the hearts of those who you always brought a smile to. I love you little buddy, rest in peace.Bellevue, WashingtonMarch 7, 2017
Sophie
12/1/2004 - 3/5/2017Sophie was our sweet girl. She was the joy of our home and we loved her so much. From reading the paper on the front porch, have cocktails on the deck, working in the garden, or taking walks to the park, Sophie was with us. We would load her up in the car and take trips together which she loved. Memories must be at the forefront at his time because the sadness of losing her is still so fresh in our hearts.Kathy HoltAuburn, WashingtonMarch 6, 2017
Max
8/7/2006 - 2/26/2017Max was magnificent, regal, and above all gentle. He was the very best of friends. Being with him was a soothing protective balm for our hearts. He taught us how to celebrate life's most important lessons; love without limits, forgive readily, stay together as a group, always be ready to go, eat, play, take naps, and protect your loved ones while inviting new friends to join the pack. We miss him beyond measure and reckoning but I am grateful for being able to feel the purity and immensity of this pain because that is the purity and immensity of our love. Love never really dies. It is the best of creation and the best thing we can do for each other. Max was an expert at this creation. All my life I will spend trying to live up to a fraction of what he knew how to do intuitively. Nothing really separates us but the temporary boundaries of this flesh and the arbitrary and illusory limits of ideas of time and space. We will be with you again Max and we are so grateful for every tenderness and joy you gave us with your magnificent and beautiful presence. You are the absolute best. We will love you always and forever.

In Blackwater Woods
by Mary Oliver

Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars

of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,

the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away over
the blue shoulders

of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
name is, is

nameless now.
Every year
everything
I have ever learned

in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side

is salvation,
whose meaning
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

Mr. shinji pink
12/1/2004 - 01/14/2017Mr. Shinji Pink was my best friend since the day we brought him home 12 years ago and we loved him and will continue to love him for as long as time will let us. We lost this perfect kitty to cancer two months after his diagnosis. With the help of our veterinarian, we were able to spend one more Christmas with the best gift we were ever given before the chemo treatments stopped working. It was as if Shinji wanted one more Christmas with us as well because he fought so hard to spend more time with us before it was time to say good bye.

We will miss his "barking" as he watched the leaves fall from the trees. We will miss the way he gracefully made his way on to on our laps for a kitty nap. We will miss his soft fur that would tickle our faces when we would kiss or snuggle his face. And mostly, we will miss his kind and gentle nature. He never held any grudges or ill will towards anyone or any other animal. He was the perfect kitty companion.

When ever I was feeling distraught, Shinji would always come to me and sit on my lap and nudge my hands as if he were trying to comfort me. I became dependent on his touch and purs to soothe my sadness and now that he is gone, trying to find another way to ease my sadness has been difficult. All I can do to help make this loss easier is to remember that we will see him and be able to snuggle his face once again. We will meet at Rainbow Bridge and move on together.

I love you, Shinji, my Momo. Always.

Cosmo
04/01/2005 - 12/28/2016Cosmo, you truly were the best companion around. Your kind soul and gentle nature will be missed so very much. Our home just isn't the same without your presence. Rest in peace old friend.
