Our pets fill our lives with so much joy and parting is always so difficult.
A solitary candle brings light to the darkness.
Lighting a candle is a sacred ritual in many different traditions and religions.
The flickering candle is a symbol of hope and remembrance and ignites something deep within us.
We invite you to light a candle in memory of your beloved pet.
Please contact us with a short write up in remembrance of your pet and include a picture at least 800 pixels wide. Please email this information to Jan Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear God, please escort our beloved companions.
Assign them to a place of honor, for they have been faithful servants and have always done their best to love us.
Bless the hands that send them to you, for they are doing so in love and compassion, freeing them from pain and suffering.
Grant us the strength not to dwell on our loss and help us to remember the details of their lives with the love they have shown us.
Grant us the courage to honor them by sharing those memories with others.
Let them remember us as well and let them know that we will always love them.
Thank you for the gift of their companionship and for the time we’ve had together.
And thank you God,
For granting us the strength to give them to you now.
We didn't know your time with us would be so short and not enough.
How lucky we were to have such a sweet boy bring sunshine into our hearts from the moment we met.
I can still feel you nestled in my lap with your head tucked under my arm. Your favorite place to take a nap.
When we look up at the sun we think of you and how you loved to lay outside with its rays upon you.
Remembering you is easy, we do it everyday, but missing you is heartache that never goes away.
You will always be close to our heart and there you will remain.
Until that joyous day arrives when we are together again in this life or in some other place,
our sweet Cubbie boy we love you so much.
When you weren't with him, toys were the next love of your life.
I miss you so much Kori, you were one sweet dog.
From the day she entered our lives it was obvious she was a special little girl. She loved everybody whether they had two legs or four, she did not know a stranger. She loved to play with her toys, but she had a couple of favorites; her ragged raccoon tail which she joyfully brought to you when she wanted to play, or her teddy bear, which was as big as she was when she arrived at our home.
Sammi was not a barker, although she had the cutest bark when she wanted a treat or wanted to get our attention. Sammi’s other unique way of getting our attention was to sneeze. Even our veterinarian marveled at the way she would sneeze if she wanted something.
She was beautiful, with the sweetest disposition. She was patient, loving and lovable. My favorite time of day was early in the morning when Sammi and I got up, sat down in a rocking chair with her on my lap as I read my Bible. She curled up in a little ball, contented as could be.
She went everywhere with us and she is missed so very much. She was my best friend, my confidante and my little angel all rolled into one.
I thank God for the gift of 17 years with her.
We love you our sweet baby and we will see you again someday in some other place.
But what she lacked in size, she made up for in personality! What a dog.
She was only 8 lbs, but she thought she was a Rotweiller, and that always made me laugh!
If I didn't get her food on quick enough, she would let me know by her bark. Her best day included many visits to her toy box, and sitting on my lap of course.
God speed my sweet Tulip, till we meet again at the bridge.
Coming right on Ling-Ling's heels was our sweet Mae-Li, also a rescue baby. While she was only with us 2 1/2 years, she was a dog who didn't expect much out of life; just a few square meals a day and a bed to lay in. Mae-Li was a Daddy's girl and although she didn't like to run, she ran when she saw her Daddy going outside to his shop. She knew a treat awaited her there. We both miss our unassuming, but much loved Mae-Li.
Ling-Ling and Mai-Li, you will remain in our hearts forever.
Mitzy, I miss you so much. I think about you every day. People talk about the "unconditional love" that a pet gives. As you know, I was 23 before I ever had my first pet so I really didn't know what they were talking about before you came along. Thank you so much for loving me with all of my faults. I hope they have Christmases in doggy heaven and Santa brings you Beggin' Strips.
Happy Holidays, Mitzy. I'll always love you.
It didn't take long to fall in love with the little guy, except for his new sister, Pickles (but that is the" Yorkie thing" in her taking over). But she soon gave in and they became walking buddies and played tug of war and wrestling.
Kody was a happy go lucky little guy and I loved him. He'd run around, always with a toy in his mouth. There was always a toy trail from the living room to the kitchen and to the back door,and when he decided that I'd slept enough he'd pull the blanket right off from me!
As quickly as he arrived into our family,is as quickly as he left us,so unexpectedly. He blessed us for two months and 3 days.
Kody has taught me something...it seems if you sit back and think...animals always teach us something. For me it was life is given and you don't know how long you have, so forget the past of regrets and pain,and look to the blessings that you now have and live life to the fullest!! Throw some toys around and pull off some covers!! It seems so much easier for dogs to do, and harder for humans to grasp!! Kody was living proof of that!!!!
Having Kody was the happiest 2 months (sometimes trying) that I have had and I trust he had a nice time with us.
Kody is truly missed ..........With much love and and too few memories, BUT great ones!
Your knickname at the vet was Kujo...so much anger packed in such a little body. And oh, what an experience at bath time and grooming. As the years passed I didn't have to dodge the bites as often and little by little you mellowed and realized how much we truly loved you.
Faint scars remain from your bites, but I touch them tenderly for they were a part of you. Your first kiss was the greatest present we have ever received.
Though there were many difficult days, you filled our lives with joy our Sweet Kina. We shall meet again in a much better place.
We Will Love You Forever.
How we wish we could feel your sweet kisses once again, see your happy butt, hear you talking to us the way only you could and feel your warm body next to ours.
We light this candle in remembrance of one of the most wonderful, loyal and loving companions anyone could have had in their lives.
Know that you will never be forgotten and will be loved through eternity.
