In Memory


Thank You For Visiting My Memorial Page

I would like to dedicate these canine memorials to our vet, Dr. Brenda Culver.


Unfortunately part of life is loss, which can feel unbearable.  We all do what we can to get through the loss without ever forgetting those special to us.  Here I honor some special people and dogs.

Please click on the link to the left to read the tributes.  Clicking on the photos will enlarge them.

If you or a friend has lost a pet perhaps this poem will help:

Don't tell me that you understand
Don't tell me that you know,
Don't tell me that I will survive
Or how I will surely grow.

Don't tell me that this is just a test
That I am truly blessed
That I am chosen for this task
Apart from all the rest.

Don't come at me with answers
That can only come from me,
Don't tell me how my grief will pass,
That I will soon be free.

Don't stand in pious judgment
Of the bounds I must untie,
Don't tell me how to suffer
And don't tell me how to cry!

My life is filled with selfishness,
My pain is all I see,
But, I need you now,
I need your love, unconditionally.

Accept me in my ups and downs,
I need someone to share,
Just hold my hand and let me cry,
And say, My friend, I care.
