Crossing The Rainbow Bridge:
Bobbie Ruth Langley, owner of Life Cycle Pet Cremation This is a fact of life and one of the hardest things a pet guardian has to go through. Life Cycle Pet Cremation was not around when it was Zeus's Time. However, I have been to Life Cycle with a dear friend when it was time for her beloved pup (my nephew) to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Bobbie Ruth was so caring, patient and supportive which made for a very peaceful and beautiful experience.
The quote on their website says it all: "Honoring your pet's life through exceptional after-care".
