In Memoriam: Hali Ortiz

By Carlos and Luisa Ortiz published on May 2nd, 2022
"Thank you for all you did Dr. Brush."
We had Hali for almost 14 years. She was the most loyal, beautiful girl. She was our youngest child and kept us company when we became an empty nest. She loved riding in the car. Her passing on 3/11 4:04 PM has put a hole in our heart but we know that she’s resting in heaven with her sister Xena. Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Elly Mae

By Kristin Bryant published on May 2nd, 2022
"Heaven at Home is truly amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. The compassion, empathy, and love they show is a blessing. Each and every one of them helps to make this difficult process a…"
I rescued Elly Mae when she was under a year old from a situation where she wasn’t treated the way she deserved. For me; seeing her in the pictures, was love at first sight. She was my running partner for years when I could run. She would be with me at my side while working with my horses. She was always trying to sneak rides from passers by because she loved car rides. She wasn’t… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Hope

By Jena Stover published on April 1st, 2022
"Dr. Barnes was so kind, warm and gentle with Hope. I think the way that Dr. Barnes handled Hope’s body after we said goodbye was equally as important to me as was the way she and…"
Hope was my fur baby for 16 years. She was about 3 years old when I rescued her from Kalamazoo Animal Rescue where I was a volunteer. She had been living in the Kalamazoo Animal Rescue store, we had at the time, for a year. I didn’t adopt her immediately because my boyfriend is terribly allergic to cats. I couldn’t figure out why no one would adopt her - she was adorable, sweet, kind, and… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Marley

By Kimberly Stephens published on March 8th, 2022
"Dr. Amy Hoss came out to my home in the morning of February 28, 2022. She was phenomenal. She was extremely kind, sympathetic, extremely caring, and was thorough at explaining to me and my friend who…"
Marley rescued me in January of 2008 when she was 9 weeks old. My ex-husband and I walked into a pet store and walked right past the little fluff ball, as my peripheral vision thought she was a Persian kitten. I fell in love with her as soon as I got her out of the cage! Her personality won us over and I've never regretted choosing her. Due to my mix-up of initially thinking she… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Ronin

By Tom U published on March 8th, 2022
"Thank you to Laurie from Heaven at Home Pet Hospice for allowing Ronin to pass peacefully at home surrounded by love! I will miss you sweet girl but believe you have found your legs again and…"
Incredibly sad and emotional day saying goodbye to my Ronin. She was an amazing dog for 9 years until arthritis took over her rear hips. She lost so much mobility over the past couple of months and I would carry her out multiple times per day. I was committed to assisting her as long as she would allow it. The vet said she will let you know when her time was done and she was… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Saint

By Brittany published on March 8th, 2022
"Kim was so kind, gentle and comforting. Thank you- truly, from the bottom of our hearts."
Saint was the most gentle, kind, loving old soul. He made everyone he met fall in love with him! He loved rocks, treats and snuggles from his family. Most of the time you could find him snuggled up on our couch or hiding in the “ woods” ( our house plant) :)  He will be missed more than words can express. We love you sweet boy. You have made the last 14 years of our… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Sophie

By Barry and Wendy Sullivan published on January 25th, 2022
"We were extremely pleased with Heaven At Home. Everyone was kind, helpful and sympathetic. I will recommend them to friends and family."
Sophie was our beautiful 6 year old Dalmatian. She loved chasing squirrels, riding in our truck, going camping, and on the pontoon boat. We are both retired so we had lots of time to spoil her. We also have 18 grandchildren and 4 great grandsons, and Sophie loved playing with the kids. Sophie was diagnosed with kidney failure and we lost her on Christmas Eve. We both miss her so much. Our lives will never… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Blu and Gussy

By Pam Foster published on January 25th, 2022
"Dr. Tillman (with Blu) and Dr. Brush (with Gussy) assisted our family in transitioning both over "The Rainbow Bridge". I cannot say enough good things about either of them and their compassion for what they do!…"
Blu, our cattle dog mix, lived till the ripe old age of 13 1/2 after we adopted her as a puppy from the Capital Area Humane Society. We had to make the decision to humanely euthanize her in April 2021 due to dementia and senior arthritis. She was a great dog and a part of our family. Gussy, our basset hound, only knew Blu as his "mom" and sorely missed her every day. Gus developed… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Luka

By Monique Johnson published on January 25th, 2022
"Dr. Barnes was more than we could have hoped for on our very tough day. She provided support and guidance for helping my kids through the process and we are so grateful. Luka had such a…"
Luka enriched our lives for 14 adventurous years, and he was such a gift we will always cherish. He traveled across the county multiple times, lived with us in 16 different places and stepped into both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. He rode thousands of miles with us and was so adaptable and loving through it all. Luka was very smart too. As a puppy, he could pick out which toy I named with up… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: River

By Maureen Rice published on January 11th, 2022
"I would like to thank Dr. Kim for her kindness and compassion."
How lucky am I to have had 12 plus years with my sweet golden retriever, River. Every day was a gift. He was my sunshine and will always hold a spot in my heart. Goodbyes are never easy with those you love, yet I am relieved he is no longer suffering. Together, River and I explored parks and trails all over West Michigan, often before daylight. He loved snow as much as I do and… Read The Rest of This Memorial
