Lovely & Comforting
Ron and I have been thinking about our cat, Pinkie, quite a bit lately and naturally, we remember her “wake” at your lovely facility. We are so thankful that Dr. Steven Schultz, the vet who euthanized her, recommended you to us. It was so very important to us to know for certain that the ashes that would be returned to us would be those of Pinkie’s!! And you and your facility provided exactly that. Our eldest daughter drove us to your place that early evening. I must say that it was a very easy trip, probably no more than 20 minutes from our home in Williamsville. However, we certainly were not prepared what we were about to experience. After speaking with you in your office for a while, you then led us into the Rainbow Room. And there, elevated on a carpeted bench, lay our Pinkie. She had been placed on a red blanket, and a white rose lay across her beautiful white silky fur body. We were in awe of the obvious care that had been taken to arrange her so beautifully. We were stunned by how peaceful everything seemed in that room. It was so wonderful to be able to sit next to her and pet her for the last time and to say our goodbyes. We loved her so. We took pictures of her in the room. I regret not having all of my children and a few friends there, too. I just didn’t realize how lovely and comforting it would be at Pets in Peaceful Rest. We even were able to watch Pinkie be placed in the cremation machine. It was important to us that she be cremated all by herself. Thank you, Scott, for opening Pets in Peaceful Rest. We think of our pets as family and to be able to have a viewing and memorial for them is so helpful and so healing. God bless you.
