Thank you so much for helping us with Maggie.


My sweet boy, remmi had to be put down two months ago. Fungal disease we believe. Took too long to diagnose. Best dog I'll ever have. Friendly to any animal or child. He is terribly missed and has left a huge hole in our hearts. Thanks, The kurtz family


Dr. Cornelius, I wanted to express my gratitude for helping me yesterday and tell you that Dr. Spade did such a great job with my parent's dog. She was very gentle with him and made him feel comfortable. He had not wagged his tail in days and wagged his tail when he saw her. She also put me at ease and made it as positive of an experience as it could be. You do great work and I am so happy you offer this service. Anikan was able to peacefully take his last breath in the comfort of his home. Dr. Spade is wonderful and compassionate. I will recommend your service to my friends and let people know this is a great option should they be faced with making this decision for their pet. Thank you, Virginia


Your calm and caring demeanor along with your expertise immediately put us both at ease.


I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to Dr. Christie Cornelius and Last Wishes. Having to make the difficult decision for the well -being of our ailing fifteen year old pug, Bonnie, was made a little easier with her support. The experience at home was as peaceful as possible. The amazing compassion Dr. Cornelius showed even before coming to our house was a source of comfort for us all. Dr. Cornelius took time to explain the process and make sure Bonnie was comfortable. If you have to make this difficult decision, I encourage you to let Last Wishes make this a peaceful loving experience. Many thanks to Dr. Cornelius! Greg P


Dori had been a wonderful member of our family for 10 years and we wanted to give her the best. We did. We gave her care at Sunset and special care at Gulf Coast and a very special ending with Last Wishes.


Just today I was remembering my sweet Slim kitty. Dr. Cornelius eased his transition from this world with kindness and compassion this past April. I agonized over the decision even though it was the right one and Dr. Cornelius gave us that confidence. I still miss him. This was his eulogy- Today I said the long goodbye to my beloved Slim Kitty Opossum. He was 18 years old, he came to me in his autumn years and spent his winter by my side as I navigated my way into adulthood--we lived in six homes together and I lived with him longer than I've lived with anyone else as an adult. In his early years he experienced horrific neglect, but never lost his kind heart and welcomed many a furbaby into his home. Among his best friends he counted two rescued pit bulls and a cat with crooked paws he played Mr.Mom to when he was a small kitten with two broken paws. Sweet Slim, grief is the wage paid for the gift of your years and friendship; it is well worth the cost. Rest well and play in the sun with your body and mind restored. Thank you, I love you always and forever." - Maureen H


Christie, I cannot thank you enough for coming to our home last night to assist “Nidawi” through her final hour. Working in the vet field for 10 years myself, seeing everything and assisting owners in their own time of grief never prepared me for my own. I felt pretty “strong” through the day and thought I could be remain so through the process, but really how do you really prepare for something like this? “Nidawi” was my first “baby”, my first responsibility outside of myself. She taught me a lot about joy, unconditional love, and companionship. If I could have had her forever, I would have without a doubt. Her last few years were hard on her between increasing anxiety, health issues, and blindness. She was such a great friend to me, it was only fair that I be a friend in return and give her give her peace from her discomfort. Having you here at our home with other family members made saying good bye much more manageable. Seeing the process from the beginning to the end helped a great deal as well as twirling her overgrown hair through my fingers while she took her last breath was an experience that I would not have been blessed with otherwise. We thank you so much for being available and providing a gentle and loving way to say good bye to “Nidawi”, she deserved it. BettyRose


Dr. Cornelius, Thank you for everything and service that you provide. Nemo was such a sweet boy and I miss him everyday. He brought so much love and joy into my life. I was his owner but really, he owned me. He had the kindness eyes and the most gentle soul. Even though it wasn't an easy decision to make, I am so grateful that he was at home. I am so appreciative of your kindness and understanding. It takes a very special person to do what you do. Christa


Dear Dr. Cornelius I went to get Sadie's ashes I could not wait to have her home again. What a lovely box and Certificate they were so nice to me. Even carried her to the car for me it was so hot. God Bless you and all you do for our wonderful family members in our times of need. Sincerely ... Francine S. & Sadie
