Providing end-of-life care and bereavement care with distinction
Serving Middlesex, Monmouth and the surrounding counties in Central Jersey
Part of the healing process when we lose a friend or family member is the funeral service. That event serves as a moment to gather those who mourn and share the details of that person’s life history, their character and an anecdote or two that we hope to hold on to even though we’ve lost the person.
Let this space be your opportunity to memorialize the pet that you have lost. Please submit a photo and share some thoughts about what your companion meant to you.
When you return to see your memorial posted here, please also read and reflect on others’ memorials. Celebrating the bond pets share with their families – what they’ve meant to each of us – is a healthy step in the healing process.
Lexie we will miss you so much. Your beautiful nature touched everyone you met.
We are eternally grateful you came into our lives and will forever be in our hearts:
Until we meet again our princess x
Our sweet girl battled CHF (congestive heart failure) for 9 months. She passed away peacefully at home, Thursday, July 16, 2020, surrounded by those that loved her the most. Her little body grew too old and tired of fighting this horrible disease.
She was the sweetest, most gentle little soul one could have ever met. She was our heart dog and filled our hearts with so much happiness, love and joy. We were blessed to have her 14 years and will miss her dearly and cherish all the beautiful memories. Our hearts ache just knowing that we will never see her again.
Rest easy baby girl,
Our beloved Aiden loved his cake.
It’s been a tough road for our beloved Aiden in these last four years. We gave Aiden our best care till the end. I know Aiden felt the love and kindness around him. Vince M.

My only boy. My only breed champion. My first UD. My puppy whisperer in my grooming shop. The BEST big brother to my Charm. My MAN! My friend. His passing has shattered my heart. Diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma on March 23rd as a pandemic encircled our world. I was forced to close my shop & given the gift of being able to spend his last weeks with him. By the grace of God, one of my clients told me about Journeys to Peace & Dr Robyn Smith. Her kindness & promptness allowed me to keep my promise to Garth, that I would NEVER let him suffer. As I watched his subtle decline, I got in touch with Dr Smith. When I realized what he had been trying to tell me all day, that he was ready, I contacted her again & said can you come? She was here in less than an hour. He had his dignity & my arms around him as he crossed over. I will be forever grateful for the gift Dr Smith allowed me to give my beloved boy even in the middle of a pandemic. Jean H.
Thank you again for helping Erica and myself during one of the most trying times of our young lives. Lilly has been our baby girl since the day we rescued her 7 years ago.. You helped provide her a comfortable send off in her own home, in her own bed looking out her favorite window as we said goodbye together. For this, I cannot thank you enough. It helped ease both of us knowing she wasn’t nervous, scared or stressed since she was at home with her family until the very end. Brendan C.
