6-8-2009 to 7-14-2017      Family: Gregg, Krista, Tara, Abby and McKenna Lee

You were taken from us so suddenly...our faithful, goofy, love bug. Life will never be the same without you. Bella is looking for her bubby, so we will be sure to give her lots of love while we all find a new "normal" without you... we love you big boy and can't wait to play ball with you again!




Maggie    

2/13-2003 - 3/29-2016

On March 29, Maggie gracefully went to her forever Heavenly home, surrounded by her family and caregivers. A shelter dog that chose us, she was a credit to her breed (black lab),loyal, obedient and for thirteen years a faithful jogging partner. No doubt she's now sitting on her grandmothers lap receiving constant praise. Bob & Susan

Benton
1990 to July 2006 • Owners: Gretchen & Shelley Heiden

Benton was around for 16 years, he was a part of our every day life, our growing years, he saw us through so much, 4 moves, 2 states, 7 schools, ups and downs, good and bad, holidays, bumpy days, congratulatory days, wins and losses, he was there for it all! And he was there every time and every time he was the same...always accepting, always with a calming manner, a loving wag, and an irresistable look on his face. Ya had to love him, cuz he loved us so easily, so unconditionally...

It was incomprehensible thinking about losing him, but when it was time, we called the right people. Beryl put a calm in my voice, I knew he was in good hands when he left home. And I was so anticipating him coming home again, because he belonged at home with us. When the pewter heart shape urn was delivered, it was done with such sensitivity, caring and respect. I tried to say 'thank you' but in return Beryl shared "it was their honor.".. It's the only way to say 'goodbye' to your pet...it's the best way to keep them 'forever in your heart!"

Thank you Faithful Friends, for being there when we had to say 'goodbye to our Ben" Thank you for making it so personalized, and so sincere! Love ya Ben, forever!!!!

Buddy Piontek
1995 to June 14, 2006 • Owners: Piontek Family

“Buddy” Piontek, a Golden entered into rest Wednesday, June 14, 2006 after eleven years of faithful companionship.
Always one for making the most of a day, Buddy did his best to live life to its fullest. He was best known for never passing up a ride in the back of the family’s truck, where he would revel in the exhilaration of a summer’s wind blowing through his sunlit golden coat. He always managed to maintain his dignity, even when his “mom” tried to teach him to pull her on her bicycle. A quick trot through the briars brought that activity to a screeching halt and it was said that Buddy even cracked a smile at himself. He also enjoyed swimming, chasing boats and maintaining a curious relationship with a neighboring llama, who; we are told, is inconsolable.
Buddy’s warm disposition, loving nudges and trusting gazes will be missed, but never forgotten by those who knew and loved him most. He returned that love ten fold and served his family well.

It seems like ages ago since we found each other and I can't believe we had to say goodbye. It feels just like yesterday we were watching you play hop and jump around doing your boxing thing you do. I wish I could hear you howl one last time, like when you thought you were alone or when we left on a walk without you. I have so many memories that Ill never forget you and Ill keep you in my heart forever. You were the best friend I could ever wish for and great to our family. We all loved you so much and I hope you know that. I'm sure you felt the same, I know you did, just by you wagging your little stumpy tail. You always seemed so happy even till the end. I prayed to God and asked him to take care of you, so behave. So go have fun and play with Maggie, Loki and Meika. I'm so sorry DD. This isn't a goodbye, but this is I'll see you later on the other side. 
We'll miss you and we all love you. love Dad

To my precious baby girl. 
I have so many loving memories of you. I will miss your meows that you would let out when I came home, that wouldn't stop until I picked you up to hold. In the winter when you were my snuggle bunny to keep me warm at night. I loved petting your soft fur and rubbing your big belly..listening to your purr. You were the fat cat I always wanted. I love you so much and your brothers Popcorn and T.T and I will miss you so much.
We love you Pretty Girl!
