I’m finally able to post a testimonial without crying; my memories of our sweet Sheba have all become good now, and those of her last few days have faded a bit. I’d like to thank you again for your kindness as we said our good-byes to a much loved companion.
When we brought her to your office on July 27, despite the fact that we could only afford the common cremation rather than the kind of service we would have liked to have for her, you showed both us, and our departed puss, respect and compassion. In fact, my final memory of her is her resting in the basket in your receiving room with one paw sticking out – a pose she often used in life.
I’m glad I was able to get a ride to the ash spreading ceremony on August 22. Your reading of ‘The Rainbow Bridge’ was beautiful . . . I only cried because I knew that this was almost my final good-bye. The absolute final good-bye was when I had to throw away all the furniture covers that she’d used when she first became incontinent, and although I never thought parting with cat pee stained items would hurt, it surprisingly did.
In any case, I’m glad to know that you and Patrick are around, loving your pets as we love ours, and able to help them take those final memorial steps to comfort their humans after they’ve crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
