Testimonial: Reuniting Vegas and Bill

We are always delighted to see how people around the world are using Let Your Love Grow to memorialize their loved ones. From potted plants to backyard trees, the possibilities are truly endless. Take a look at how one of our customers created a personalized, eco-friendly memorial using Let Your Love Grow. 

"I lost my friend and companion my chocolate lab, Vegas in September. I found Vegas when she was only a few weeks old when someone had dumped her in a ditch. I brought the starving puppy home and she stole my heart! I soon realized she had been born blind. Vegas blessed my life for 8 years! Her earthly “dad” Bill Gillespie, loved her unconditionally. When we lost Bill two years ago to cancer, Vegas grieved with the rest of us. When I realized I was losing Vegas, I called Bob Jenkins and he and his wife, Annette helped me plan a way to memorialize this sweet dog. Loving Hearts Pet Memorial Services in Eureka, MO cremated Vegas and prepared her ashes so that I could lay her to rest with her dad at the cemetery. We spread Vegas’ ashes on Bill’s grave using Let Your Love Grow. Vegas is now running and playing in Heaven and is reunited with Bill. Loving Hearts Pet Memorial Services also made me a clay memento of Vegas’ footprint. Saying good-bye to my Vegas was made easier by being able to create a living memorial for Vegas using Let Your Love Grow.  Always in my heart and my memories. Thank you Let Your Love Grow!"
