    Hi Christine,

    Thank you for a place to put memories of my dog Mandi. She and I were together for 15 years and there isn’t a week that goes by I don’t think of her.

    I think one of my strongest memories is the way she used to “stare me down!” Mandi was a Queensland Healer and she had me trained so well! If I was too tired to play frisbee with her, she would sit there and stare at me with her frisbee in her mouth until I got up and played with her.

    Too funny! I’m glad she could leave me with so many wonderful memories, so Mandi if you can hear me, thanks for the memories! Love you!

    Dear Staff Members at Eden Memorial,

    We have never met, but you were trusted with my best friend, loyal companion… Sigma. I was given Sigma in 1991 when she was 6 weeks old. From age 21 to now 36, Sigma was always a major part of my life.

    Sigma stayed loyal through 7 moves, Army Reserve service, college graduation, 4 girlfriends, Police Academy Graduation, three job changes, two roommates, the marriage of my wife and the birth of our son.

    Sigma spent every night of her life either on my bed, in my bed or on the floor next to me. It was only this past year when she could no longer make the trip up the stairs to our room. Still, I would wake every morning to find her curled up on the rug at the base of the stairs waiting for me.

    The loss of my “sweet girl” has broken my heart. Fortunately, every friend I have, and person I know has understood the grief I feel. A pet is never “just an animal”. Infact, if humans could be more like our pets, the world would be a better place.

    Thank you for expressing the care you provided in handling Sigma, and the manner in which you have presented her remains. I am still devastated and heart broken. But your compassion has lessened the pain.

    Thank You-
    The Vitale Family

    It is with a heavy heart that I post this. I have lost the “other” love of my life, Seyval. My Rott was with me for just shy of 11 years and I don’t think that I will every fully recover from the pain of loss. I made a very difficult decision last Friday and still find it hard to not think she will be there at home wagging her stub when I return.

    I picked up her ashes today and felt that we were at least back together again. I couldn’t imagine not bringing her home, but at over 90 pounds, putting her in a grave (even though we have a ranch) was somewhat out of the question. Thank you Eden Memorial. The surgeon told me that you “waited” for her. My heart breaks at that thought.

    Fly baby. I know you always had the heart, just not the hips or the spine.

    On 5/31/06, I had to make a heart breaking decision: putting Winston to sleep.I only had my kitty for 5 weeks, and already I was so attached to him.Winston was only 14 weeks old at the time of death, so very little.He suddenly became very ill.One week later, I had Winston put to rest.The tears just flowed and flowed.I hadn’t cried like that in a very long time.It’s been a week and although the tears have stopped,the memories of our short time together will live on.Love you and miss you, Winston. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
    (Thanks to Eden Memorial for giving him a special resting place.)

    On June 1, 2006 my Midnight passed away. She was 13 years old. She was my world, my friend.
    She was a black mixed lab. A neighbor at the time asked me if I would like to have a mixed lab her cousin had and wanted to get rid of her. I had just lost my other animals and wasn’t sure if I could handle another dog. So I told her to bring her over and we would go from there. Well, it was love at first site. We grew so close together and where I went she went with me. She loved to go for walks. You couldn’t say the word “walk” unless you intended on taking her. She would get so excited. She never cared what kind of day I had, she was always happy to see me when I got home from work and it made my day better because I was home with her.
    There was something special about her I can’t seem to explain. We took care of each other. At times when she was getting older I would say to her “Midnight, what would I do without you?” I grieve for her night and day. You wonder how people who treat there animals so cruely and not care, and somehow those animals are loyal and love them anyway. My heart goes out to those special animals. My midnight was loved and spoiled. She never cried, whimpered and the vet could do anything to her and she wouldn’t even twitch. She is home with me now where she will be safe and never be forgotten.
    So my Midnight (Minnie) be free as the wind and we will meet again at Rainbow Bridge.

    Love you Always,
    Mom (Joan)

    P.S. Thanks again to Eden Memorial

    One of our clients shared something with me recently that I wanted to pass on to all of you that are going through this difficult time of losing a beloved pet.

    I decided to call one of our clients after her loss and see how she was holding up. She explained that she was having her “good” and “bad” moments…but what was keeping her going was that even though she missed her beloved dog so much, she knew she would see him again. To her it seemed like an eternity whenever that time would be…but to her companion it wouldn’t be but a second. For she believed that when he passed he would but only turn around for a second and then turn around again and see her standing there next to him in Heaven. Her belief was that there is no time in Heaven…so what can be years to only mila-seconds to our loved ones who passed.

    We all may have different religious beliefs…but it gave me comfort in what she said.

    To all of you going through this time…we are sending loving thoughts to you and your family.

    I lost my sweet cat,Rex, over a year and a half ago. Time eases the pain that would almost choke me sometimes. But, the pain still comes around now and again. You see,I was talked in to letting my cat outside to do as he pleases. Previously, he was an indoor cat. I felt something was wrong that day last summer. He had been attacked and killed by a coyote (my guess). From what remained, I took his body and cleaned it as best I could and wrapped him up in a white cloth and before putting him in a home-made casket, I snipped some of my hair off and put it in with him along with a note of how sorry I was to have let him down. As his mother, I did let him down. Since, I have built an outdoor cat enclosure in his memory that my cats are allowed in under supervision in the daytime. It is called Rex’s Lair. I miss him every day. If I ever meet up with his spirit again, I will hold him and never let him go.

    We just held our Lit'lun as she slipped out of this world and on to the Rainbow Bridge.
    We called her the "wonder dog" and there will never be another one like her.
    I held her in my hand as a six week old sickly pound puppy and almost euthanised her but something inside said to foster her back to health.
    So we fostered her for 14 years and what a joy she was in our lives.
    She was Saras' dog but belonged to our entire family and we will never let her leave our hearts.
