2024 Memorials

Please send any photo submissions to gentlegoodbyes@gmail.com


Duke loved being involved in everything, from walking, digging trenches, shoveling snow, or shopping for horse food.


This is Kitten. He was a gentle cat who shared a special friendship with another of our cats. He lived a long and happy life of over 16 years. He will be reunited with many friends he knew over the years .


Eli was a big part of our family. Such a gentle giant. He was always so friendly to everyone he met both humans and animals of every kind. Except crows! He loved to chase them. Thank you for giving us such a sweet goodbye to our beloved dog. It meant a lot to us for him to be comfortable at home during those last days. We miss his presence in our home and this is a part of having a pet, saying good-bye. Thank you for making it a little easier.

Kyah Lynn Leiby
3/13/09 to 2/25/24

We had to say good-bye to our sweet & loving Kyah Lynn, Feb 25th.
Kyah was 2 1/2 wks shy of her 15th birthday. She was so sweet & gentle all of her life.
Some of her favorite things: laying out in our front yard watching over the neighborhood, playing in water, camping, going for rides, playing with her furry friends.
Kyah, you will forever will be in hearts and minds.

Sweet Bear

Our sweet baby Bear. We're so grateful you shared your life with us for 14 years. Thank you for the precious memories that now fill the space your passing left in our hearts. Thank you to Gentle Goodbyes for sending Doctor and Tech to us. Their caring and compassionate professionalism helped ease Bear through a painless transition. We're grateful to all the Gentle Goodbyes staff. You're all terrific people.

Izzy Tomko
9/26/2012 - 3/11/24

I loved her so much. She was the most adventurous, loyal, loving, and a little crazy (about food)! My little "Sweet but a Psycho" Pug girl is now over the rainbow bridge chasing balls and barking at squirrels ?
She will forever be in my heart.

Thank you to Gentle Goodbyes for making her journey as peaceful as possible. ???

Buster Bollinger

Thank you so very much for your kindness and support last week with Buster, our sweet Lab-Chesapeake mix. He was loved by everyone in our family, as well as our neighbors, and losing him broke all of our hearts.

Boo Martinez

Boo Martinez passed away ever so peacefully at home in our arms at the age of 18. She was one of a kind and a true chihuahua ambassador; changing opinions wherever she went due to her LOVE of people and calm nature.

Tony Miklos

It is with much sadness and love, I share our beloved family member, Tony has crossed into heaven's rainbow bridge. He was the best dog and was loved by all!!


Rambo was the best dog and companion you could ever ask for. He watched our family grow over the last 15 years and brought joy and laughter to everyone around him. He was one of a kind and loved by so many. We will miss you Rambo until we meet again at the rainbow bridge.


On February 7th our sweetheart, Roxy, crossed the rainbow bridge to join her brother that crossed November 7th. She was such a sweet girl. She loved to tease Rocket, loved all the treats, and loved to chase birds at the beach. We miss her and her brother so much.

Abbey Wallis
March 9 2015-Feb. 15 2024

Abbey was a handful as a pup but had turned into the best dog ever. She had her CGC and her Novice Trick Dog titles. She loved our place in McCall. She was an amazing swimmer and loved the water. She also loved the snow. She brought us almost 9 years of love and laughter. We miss her terribly.



Scout brought us over 13 years of joy, making our new house a home when we first moved to Idaho. We are grateful for every day we had with him, and will miss him forever.

Jake McCullough

Jake loved to go running, hiking, on walks, and just being outdoors. He was not a big fan of swimming though. He was very vocal on walks when seeing other dogs on his rounds. Hope you're running and playing on the other side. You will be greatly missed.


We adopted Banner when he was 11 years old, along with his bonded friend Dixie (who was also 11). We knew we wouldn't have him for long, but it was such a wonderful 4 years. He was a sweet, quirky, very loving dog. He was always moving and sniffing things out, and he never was too far out of view of Dixie. He fit right into our family of people and cats. He had such a personality! He made the sweetest "happy noises". We will miss him always.

Ollie "Stinker" Ramsey

How incredibly fortunate I was to have my amazing Ollie (Stinker) girl for 13 loving years!! She was amazing; truly majestic! Throughout life's many journeys, she was always by my side, no matter what. Her loss leaves such emptiness but I'm so thankful for the forever memories she gave me, my family and friends - her spirit will truly live on forever!


Bella was rescued by us in Oct of 2020. She settled right in with us and was a big part of our family. She would do a little prance/dance every night at dinner time waiting for her food. She loved to walk and lay in the sun. We will miss her greatly.


Thank you so much for handling Brody and such a lovely way as he passed thank you for helping us be home with him. We loved him very much. He had such a personality and even tried to talk to us. He was my special little buddy, and my kids loved him as well. Now he is at peace and happily running on trails and playing in creeks without any pain.

Morgan Woodell

6/24/16 - 1/5/24

Thank you for being there to help Luke no longer suffer through the cancer. Lukie, bonk, Bo Bo -- Luke, you came into our lives as a friend to comfort our Lucy, who had just lost her brother. We knew when we picked you out of the litter on that little farm in Texas, you were going to be a part of our family. You were such a sensitive boy, who knew when to come snuggle next to us when we needed a lift. You brought out the best in Lucy, urging her to bark at the neighbors or wanting to play first thing in the morning. We will miss your goofiness of burrowing under Daddy's blanket, hopping through the snow, or sneaking some morsels from your Uncle downstairs. We were blessed to be your mom and dad, you gave us joy and laughter, we love you, and knowing that you are no longer suffering, is comforting.

4/1/10 - 1/5/24

Bella was a true joy who had no quit in her. I was comforted by a friend's words...you gave her your last best gift, a peaceful passing. Bella will be in our hearts always.

Piglet Broome

Piglet was the sweetest fur-baby and this photo captures her true spirit, sitting in God's light, a four-legged angel on earth. Your mommy and I (your grandma) will see you again at the Rainbow Bridge. Until then, rest well without any more pain and know that you will forever be in our entire family's loving thoughts.


Sally was such a sweetheart and we loved her so much!


Sara Mama Misses You


Our beloved Golden Doodle, Oaklee came home to us after surviving a house fire at 6 weeks old along with his momma and siblings. He really was our miracle. Oaklee's favorite place to be was with "his peeps" he just couldn't relax until all 3 of us were home. He loved camping and playing keep away. He gave us a short 11 years of love and loyalty. Thank you Gentle Goodbyes for making his goodbye a peaceful experience.


GGB Doctor and Tech came to our home to help our wonderful dog, Sasha, spend her last moments on earth in a calm, peaceful way. She was in her bed instead of a sterile veterinary clinic. We were so lucky to have Sasha in our life for 13 years. She is missed and thought of every day.


They were so gentle and caring with Gunnar, we couldn't have asked for anyone better. After almost 13 years, we said goodbye to our sweet, handsome Gunnar. He was an amazing dog with such a loving personality. He loved eating socks, chasing rocks and going hunting. We will never forget him.

Roxy Hightower

In loving memory of our Roxy girl. With boundless energy and a heart full of love. You filled our lives with joy and unforgettable memories. From the time you joined us from the boxer rescue in our first home, to our cross country moves, to being Archer's very best friend (though you may have only tolerated him for his snacks). You were a constant source of comfort and happiness. We will miss your little wiggle butt and the way you loved us. Rest peacefully Roxy Ann. Until we meet again.


This is Kitty. She was 10 years old and a very sweet cat. We adopted her from our neighbor who had discovered her new husband was allergic...oops! But she quickly got used to her new mom and dad. This was one of her favorite places to sleep on a warm sunny day. She was spoiled and was supplied with fuzzy warm blankets and constant attention. She was the best and we had her for 4 years.


Thank you for helping me with Bronwyn. I am so grateful Bronwyn let me know that we belonged together. She was a tiny cat, but a massive source of joy in my life. I feel so lucky to have loved her and felt so loved in return. I'll miss her always.

Niko Thomas
4/15/2017 - 2/11/2024

From the time he was a baby to his last day on this side of the rainbow bridge, Niko's location of choice never changed - anywhere we were. The calmest, biggest, most baby-faced of cats. The loss of his gentle presence and constant companionship is enormous. We love you, Niko.

Daisy the St. Bernard

We sincerely appreciate your time and sympathy in coming to our home to assist with the end of life of our Daisy dog. She was such a dear and wonderful family pet. Her presence within our home was always enthusiasm and sweetness. Your service really helped to ease the anxiety of the realization that her vitality was gone. I find myself mentally playing with her ear and kissing her whiskers and the side of her muzzle which was so annoying to her...she always twitched, lol!


Cooper was the most loyal friend to our family. Everyone loved Cooper. He loved spring and chasing the ground squirrels (and catching them!), going to the barn with me and laying in the grass as he is here in this picture. We appreciate Gentle Goodbyes very much.


January 29th, 2024 we said goodbye to one of the goodest boys Rocky. We adopted Rocky when he was 6 years old and have loved life with him as our family's first dog. Rocky enjoyed playing soccer in the yard, pulling the stuffing out from his toys and most of all food! We miss listening for Rocky's tippy taps coming down the hall and his silent protest yaps and stomps for more snacks. Thank you Gentle Goodbyes for helping Rocky cross the rainbow bridge, we couldn't have asked for a better service and team during this hard time.


Tyra was such a sweet girl. Her sweet face is missed at our house and we will always remember the fun times we had together. Love u Tyra!


Thor came into our lives at the age of 3 and he was gentle giant and loved to be around all of us, he went everywhere with us when he was younger and he was one spoiled dog!! He will be missed and we loved him very much

Heidi Stright

Heidi was our gentle giant, We were so lucky to adopt her when she was 3. She taught us what it means to be loyal and attentive. She loved her family and was happiest when we were all together so she didn't have to worry about anyone who wasn't present. We had 3 wonderful years together and they went by all too quickly. We were not ready to say goodbye.


My sweet smart Lilly girl.
Lilly gave me her all. She was smart, kind, loving. She was the center of my universe for 16 years.
I will love her forever.


Lucy Lou was a fiercely loyal and loving dog. From the moment I met her, it was true and pure love. She was funny and playful and loved her tennis balls, bones, and stuffed animals. She was always with her owner, Sara and her favorite thing in the world was car rides. Lucy will be deeply missed, and always remembered for the sweet, loving being she was. Run free Lucy, we will Meet you on the rainbow Bridge.

DOB 24 Sep 2013

Until today we had a stride, now what will we do at 8, 9, 2, and five?
A gift from my angels. At the time I wasn't sure why. He saved me from myself, changed my life, and brought me my wife.
You were loved by everyone who ever met you, but most of all by us. Every part of our lives has been with you in mind and in that you laid your trust.
A friend, a companion, so much more. Your life was what we were meant for.
The kindest, sweetest soul ever known, no higher has an eagle ever flown.
You were given a name but were so much more than that. A more perfect soul has never been born.
Those beautiful eyes of brown like that of a savior, they melted every heart around.
You were just perfect our little Maxx ...you were literally one in a million.
You will forever be in our hearts.
