I was hoping that when my time comes, you'd consider changing your font for my memorial service program????
My Mother and I would like to give our heartfelt thank you to Rachel for being so kind and caring She was comforting and so sincere with the passing of our Laddie We were at a loss as to what to do and she guided us with kindness Thank you
Doing life on the islands with the families we serve. Another beautiful sunset at the Folly Beach.
What compassion and care the staff at the Bees Ferry facility took with our little Gracie who passed on January 6th. They treated us so kindly and gently even meeting a distraught me on a Sunday to help. If they treat our four legged family members this well I can only imagine how they help and support when we lose our human loved ones. They have my loyalty for sure!
The day, I had to finally come to terms with everything and make the decision to go to the funeral home, was July 16th, hardest decision of my life! I was introduced to Mary Wozniak, who over see’s the cremation of your pet. She actually wanted to know about Elizabeth, her story, what she was like. I spoke about Elizabeth, telling her a multitude of stories, next thing you know, she is crying. Mary has a heart of gold, very compassionate about your furbaby and you, she takes time and talks you through everything. During a conversation, I was asking about times and when they close. Mary let me know if it was over the weekend or after closing hours, Dr. Orvin had the code to drop Elizabeth off. Mary found out right away, Queen Elizabeth will not be sitting in a room over night or for any amount of time. So she made sure as soon as Elizabeth entered the doors, she was getting her ready. She took prints of her paws and nose and made me something special, she made a clay paw print with Elizabeth’s name and a little stone at the bottom, how sweet was that. All Elizabeth’s life, vets have always said, what a cute face she has, Dr. Orvin even spoke about her face. So when it came time to pick Elizabeth up, when I entered the doors, the secretary was off to your right. I said, Im here to see Mary and pick up my cat Elizabeth and right away she said, “oh, Queen Elizabeth, she has such a cute face” They knew Elizabeth was royalty and treated her as such. I am truly blessed and grateful my vet gave me these numbers for when this time came, my vet knew my love for Elizabeth and the love she had for me, they knew she only deserved the best, because she truly is royalty. We are forever grateful for this service and Mary for her kindness and love for your furbaby’s ❤️
I can't forget that freedom always comes with a price tag. I enjoy what I have today because somebody who had no idea I would exist and who I will never meet, stood up for me. Those same people fight for me today. God bless America!
