“As I am to spend the next four months or so providing transitional and then hospice care for my
beloved terrier, Courage; I can’t tell you how important it has been to have this resource available to me. Your online pre-planning information and form made it very simple to understand the importance of providing him with the same quality of care after his passing as I’ve done throughout the almost fourteen years we’ve been together. Thank you for that. It’s quite a gift to us both.” ~ Kim Stacey, Boulder Creek, California
