“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

—A.A. Milne

Rogue was adopted and from the very time we saw her we fell In love. She was a lap kitty who was called Starburst because of her explosive color pattern. She was found wandering the streets. She loved to give affection and if there was a lap to sit on, she jumped right up. If you cried , she ran to comfort you. She loved to eat. The morning before she transitioned she suddenly wouldn't eat. Later that night she laid down in her graceful way and she took her rest. Like a princess.

Pierre was the best little guy, and a true friend. He came into my life at a rough time, and I don't know what I would have done without his little wheeks and popcorns to remind me that things would be okay. Pierre was always the life of the party, but he would always return to me for snuggles at the end of the night. He leaves a potato-sized hole in our hearts.

Jax Rehak came to his family from a beagle breeding farm in WV. He was the runt of the litter, and didn't like the loud sounds of the hunt so he was adopted solely to be adored by his loving family.

He will be forever missed by his boy Reese, his two girls Macy and Maddie and his loving mom Melissa and aunt Michelle. We will love you forever, buddy.

Zeke caught our eye at a shelter in Pittsburgh joining our family between our children, Sierra and Wesley.

He was protective of his family and especially loyal to his mama. Zeke was always a bit of a grumpy old man and grown to be loved by everybody especially his grandparents whose visits he loved. You will be missed, Zekebus, Zeke Von Beak, Good Buddy.

Lily was a brown, short-haired tabby with a butterscotch belly, adopted in October 2007. She had given birth to 6 kittens, all of whom found homes.

Lily loved a sun-lit window sill, an open lap, & canned tuna fish. Everyone was her friend. Her burial spot by the cemetery entrance is fitting as she was always so welcoming to visitors.

Everyone who met her knew that she was special & loved her. We were so fortunate to have her as part of our family.

Rest in peace you sweet kitten.

longhaired gray striped cat

​Mr. Kitty was a unique cat, often times said to have a dog-like personality. Having lived in 5 different houses and 2 states, he made an impression everywhere he went. Even non-cat people couldn't help but fall in love with his friendly personality and show-stopping green eyes. He never hesitated to speak up, often times engaging in full conversations with his people. He will be truly and sorely missed, and will live on through the stories we will share with the future generation.

Her adopted parents, Vincent and Carolyn Frazier, raised her up as a puppy and gave her the name Diamond. Diamond loved (and had to play with) Carolyn's slippers. She loved to be rubbed on her stomach. She loved to be spoiled by her Daddy, Vincent. She had gotten anything she wanted with her name on it. RIP, Luv.

gray bunny

James was the bestest friend I could've ever had. He was everything all wrapped into one. A listener, someone to make me laugh when I needed and someone to let me cry when I needed. In my time of need he was always there. But there was a price to his love- carrots. Very ironic I know. But give him a carrot and he was the happiest bun in the world. James was apart of our family and more than a pet. He was our best fiend and we thank him for the time we shared. We'll miss you bun. Fly high❤️

Molly was a beautiful rescue hound with stilts for legs, a regal white fur collar, kind brown eyes with permanent eye liner, soft head and ears. Molly enjoyed hikes and Saturday morning visits to the dog park. She loved sun beams, snow and soft things. Molly welcomed three human siblings into her family and they described her as “super friendly, super cute, big heart, loving, loyal, gentle, determined, forgiving and sweet.” Molly brought joy to many and was deeply loved.

Black lab with white muzzle

Our Beloved Hunter was a happy go lucky guy who loved everyone he met. We know he is up in heaven with his dad being the best hunting and fishing buddy he can be. Well, Hunter wasn’t much of “Hunter,” so you can forget about him retrieving the bird, it’s not gonna happen. He was more skilled in the “How big of a stick can I carry around” category. We will miss you, you sweet, lovable guy! Hunter was, in fact, just a good old boy.

Until we hear your bark again...
