Nov 6th, 2017 - November 1st, 2021

Where do we start with you? You meant so much to us and you left an impact on everyone you met. Whether it was family or someone working in a drive thru, you always made their day and left them smiling.

You were the definition of unconditional love. You didn't care that we weren't perfect and we were still learning with you - you were just happy to be with us and to be completely loved and cared for. 

You had your love/hate relationship with bath time. You were either trying to escape or trying to eat all the bubbles - and you absolutely loved when I gave you a bubble hat.

You made us laugh through all the tough times and you were always there as a support animal when we needed you. You captured our hearts with your two-toned teddy bear ears, cute as a button nose, your overwhelming love to cuddle, your purrs/chortles/sniffs and your surprising love to travel everywhere with us. 

For someone so small, you had the biggest personality and you lit up the room whenever you were around. Everyone will miss you so very much and you will forever be in our hearts. 

We love you so much Bugget and may you Rest In Peace - with endless bananas and t-shirts to attack

Eleven years ago, our beautiful Trixie joined our family. Little did we know she was coming with surprises, eight to be exact and Ramona was one of them. 

Trixie and Ramona gave us years of memories, adventures and love. From swimming at their favorite spot, chasing waterfalls and looking after chickens, to camping in the backyard and cuddling under piles of blankets on a cold day. 

Trixie and Ramona were such a huge part of our family and every-day-life, that even now with them gone, we wait to hear them bark when we get home. We know wherever you are, you are together and that brings us so much comfort. 

Love you forever. Hopefully we'll all be together again some day.

"All dogs go to heaven. My little shadow, you were so loved by all who knew you. So smart, you knew all 26 of your toys by name. Mr Squeaky, Hedgehog, Beaver, I hold them all close wishing it could be you one last time. You were so curious to explore the world, lifting one tiny paw every time you were intrigued. I loved how you showed me you wanted something by doing a little spin. How you gently pawed at me for attention. How you would never give the ball back again so I could throw it for you. You were the light of my life. I hope heaven has all the tiny squeaky balls and sushi treats, and that you finally catch a chipmunk. Tschüss, Hugo."

February 2014 - August 2021

The sudden passing of Tupac Sexton-Brun occurred late August 26th at home. He was the son of Ashley Brun and Kevin Sexton. Brother to Easton Brun and the late Biggie.

Tupac is survived by his great grandmother Marjorie Jones who loved him like a son; grandmother Monique Brun (Ronnie) and 3 uncles, Travis, Ryan and Austin. Great uncle Nic Jones (Tamara) and great great uncle Brady Jones.

Tupac loved long walks, to play catch and hang out with his many friends, howl at the sirens going by and playing basketball with Brady. Tupac was such a huge, loveable, handsome, goofy, wild, fun and sweet companion. I couldn't have asked for a better best friend. You will forever be in our hearts. Mama and nana will always carry you with us sweet boy! I love you so much and words will never describe the love I have for you!

Annabelle

2021

Annabelle came to us through a failed adoption process from someone else.  She was our beautiful Persian princess, such a lady! We were so fortunate to have her for 15.5 years.  Right from the very beginning she was daddy's girl.  Annabelle always walked through the house after lights went out, carrying one of her stuffies and meowing, eventually she would come to bed or the dog would take the stuffy from her and then she would come to bed !  She always slept on daddy's pillow and often times reach her paw out and tap you on the head or arm.  Oh jeepers, to hear you meow one more time or reach out to one of us.... we miss you so much, take care princess, luv you bunches.

May 2020 - July 2021

Gone but never forgotten. You were only with us a short time but we will cherish every minute we had with you. You gave us so much. You made us smile and laugh when we were sad. You gave us unconditional love.

“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.” ― Suzanne Clothier, Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs This quote is so true about you Lexi. People tell us that we have given you so much but nothing can compare to what you gave us in such a short time.

We did everything we could do to keep you with us but we knew when we looked into those beautiful big brown eyes that you were tired and couldn’t fight this terrible kidney disease any longer. It was one of the hardest things we will ever do but we had to do what was best for you, our Lexi girl. We had to say good-bye even though it broke our hearts. We miss you so much sweet girl. You have left deep paw prints on our hearts.  We only have our precious memories of you until we meet again.

Love you baby girl.

Oh mommy's girl Bubs. I sure miss you so so much. You were such a good girl. The love we both shared will always be in mommy's heart. Remember my angel, love never dies and we will be together again some day. Until then, your brothers Smokey, Shadow and Beno will look after you. 

Love and miss you dearly! 

March 19th, 2015 - April 6th, 2021

Our sweet Tatum. You came to us extremely malnourished and scared at the age of 4. I'm so glad that I got to watch you evolve into such an amazing, loving companion. I'm glad that we could give you the last 6 years of your life free from harm and hunger. We filled these years with love, warmth and amazing relationships with so many people. Everyone that met you, loved you. You gave me so much comfort and love when I was struggling with my epilepsy and mental health. You were one of my best gifts and hardest goodbyes. I will meet you at the Rainbow Bridge one day but until then, I promise that I will rescue more animals because I know that's what you would want. Rest pain free my boy. No one will ever be able to hurt you again.

I hope that they have unlimited treats and squeaky toys in Heaven. We miss you so much.

August 17th, 2008 - March 19th, 2021

When I picked you up on October 5th 2008, you crawled into my lap and fell asleep, we were inseparable from that point on. I knew then that you would be my best friend and we had a perfect 12.5 years together, I wish we had longer. You were full of energy and attitude, lvoed your walks and toys (especially chasing a ball), but your favourite thing to do was give kisses and snuggle up with mom. We will miss you so much and you will never be forgotten.

Kiki, the sweetest and silliest girl with the softest fur. You chose me as your person in the fall of 2015. The years we spent together were far too short but were filled with several lifetimes worth of love. You loved plants and flowers, whipped cream, sitting in the sunshine on your porch and salt and vinegar chips. You loved when I played the piano and would gently boop me on the nose when you wanted to wake me up. Quirky, gentle, the Queen of Purr and the perfect little companion. I would have kept you forever but forever was far too short in the life of a cat. When you stopped purring, that was your way of telling me that your fight was over. What a fight it was though. Underneath your soft fur, beat the heart of a lioness. And so I fulfilled my part of the bargain and helped you leave this place and your tired little body. Releasing you to the place where butterflies are born and rainbows begin. I will remember and love you always, seeing you no more but feeling you everywhere.

September 23rd, 2007 - January 20th, 2021

You no longer come to greet us when we walk through the door and that makes life so quiet without you Molly, you meant the world to us! You were so much more than a pet, you were a family member. You are always in our heart and on our mind. Our hearts will always love the tiny paw prints that you left behind. No one will ever understand the love we had for you Molly-Dolly, unless they have owned a pet.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Always and forever.

Rosie, you had sass. You had personality. You had my whole heart and still do

Butters, you quirky no nonsense girl! You loved your brother Thomas so much that you had to follow him not even a year later. The day we found you, out for a drive and your Dad spied a cat carrier in that field and that sweet orange and white face sitting beside it. We didn't know if we could get to you, if you would run, if you would be scared, but you surprised us both by barrel rolling to me and burrowing into my coat. You were so scared and then so very happy to be brought inside. How life can seem so normal...and then so empty all in the same moment. I will never look at a screen door the same without laughing and thinking of you, or using the can opener and not expecting to hear your demands. My water fountains seem to be missing a pretty kitty trying to drink from them. I hope you and Tomtom found each other and he is sharing his sunbeam with you like he did here at home. We will miss you forever Butters. Your quirky ways, your odd habits and your squeaky voice. No one to head butt us....although everyone thought you were named for your colors, we know the real reason. Sweetheart you are missed and loved. I'm so sorry I failed you, we didn't know you were sick until it was too late. I hope your milk bowl is always full and your chin is being scratched. We'll miss you forever Bubbies.

Max you were our baby for 10 years and 5 days We are so happy and proud of you, you comforted us when we were sad and you played with our granddaughters, you loved to travel to Florida and you were the most beautiful puppy and grew into the most handsome baby...everyone stopped when they say you!, the comments were wow I never saw such a beautiful big black lab before. You never wanted to play with other dogs..only one Tucker was your Florida friend and you always was happy to see him. Our hearts are broken, our home is silent and empty with out you. We will never be the same...you were Everetts companion and every time he got in the vehicle You would wait for hi, to open the hatchback..so u could jump in and go for the drive... You were my baby..my first puppy I fell in love with you the moment I picked you up and the owner said there are other ones you can choose from...well I said I found mine already...my love for you grew and I loved you so much I don't know how to go on...We knew you were in pain and on the way to the vets you hugged me all the way. Thank you Max for showing our family love, happiness and how to play

In loving memory of a great cat and friend Patches. Always there for us no matter what especially when we was upset or feeling down. She loved waking us up in the mid of the night just for a few minutes of loving and just to be petted when her meowing didn't work she would scratch your back until you woke up.Patches loved spending time with us no matter where we were. We will always love and miss you RIP Patches

Thomas, you regal, handsome brat. You agreed when I asked you to be the only 30 year old cat I could know, you didn't hold up your end of the promise My Boy, you only made it to 22 years. I can't believe I'm trying to figure out how to do normal every day things, without you. You were always there, from the day I met you, you stole mine and your Dad's heart. The only cat I ever met that would stand on hind feet with front legs in the air, demanding to be held and if you didn't get your way, you'd just jump....all 25 pounds of you. When we brought you home, people would always say "how handsome your cat is", we would just smile, because not only were you a beautiful cat, you had an unforgetable personality. We promised you on that day, that no matter what you licked, kneaded or sucked on, you would never go to another home and we kept that promise for another 20 years. How does one cat make such an impact on your life, you have left a hole in our hearts. I miss my constant cooking chum, my flying paws of flurry when food was involved, you could steal a piece of food in a blink of an eye, and Heaven forbid if Dad wanted a glass of milk and didn't want to share with you. You taught us so much, but you never taught us how to go on without you. You taught your Dad that cats were more than he thought they could be, and you opened a part of his heart that will always be your spot. We didn't want to say goodbye to you ever, but we knew you were hurting and in pain, we couldn't be selfish even if we wanted to be, you deserved to know we love you that much, that we could hurt this bad but still let you go. I hope you have a nice bright sunbeam to stretch out in and sleep, laps to knead on and ears to lick. Mom and Dad miss you terribly My Boy, maybe someday it wont hurt so bad for us, but right now it doesn't seem possible. I see you everywhere and expect you to come around the corner. Life just isn't the same without your face. We will always love you Tomtom, and I just can't say goodbye. Until we meet again our boy, we will continue loving you.

November 03, 2004 - September 23, 2015

Samantha was a rescue dog, but she rescued us. No matter how bad life could get, she was our daily smile. She took care of us. I guess the morning of September 23rd 2015, she had a good look around, seen the great work she had accomplished and told herself, Ok mamma and papa ,my work is done, time to move on, you will do great, I've taught you well! Tears still come down, but we find ourselves smiling a little bit more everyday as we remember the reasons why we smiled and laughed so much when you were around. I want to believe in the Rainbow Bridge story, I need to believe we will share hugs and kisses again. Mamma and Papa.
