Dr. Cornelius: Words are hard to come by today – we know it will just take time for us to get used to not having our little girl with us. I wanted to share three of my favorite pictures of Heidi. What we want you to know is that you truly saved her (and us) – it was so peaceful and we thank you for helping her escape the pain. We could not imagine having to take her to the vet – although they loved her. To be able to have her at home – on her beanbag bed, with her family around her and to be able to gently go to sleep was what she deserved and what you allowed her to have. We were very blessed to have had her for almost 14-years – she was truly a ‘one of a kind’. So many friends and family have called us last night and today expressing how sorry they are and reiterating how much she was loved by everyone. Thank you again and we have already let everyone know about you (your website) and those out of Houston we gave them the www.petlossathome.com website. Take good care and sincerest regards ~ Gerry, Steve and Scott F ‘Heidi’s Family’


Dr. Cornelius, this week you helped us say goodbye to our beautiful Hardy. Because of you, we were able to have our final moments in a peaceful, comfortable setting that allowed us to fully express our love and emotion without the additional stress of the vet's office. You have such a gentle, without being patronizing, approach and Steve and I can't thank you enough for your grace and support during this difficult time. I will do everything I can to make sure my friends and family know about your service. Thank you again, my friend. Steve and Dana W.

Auggie – Lisa M.

Thank you to Dr. C. your gentle assistance with my sweet Auggie is so appreciated. You made a bad day easier for us both. Thank you.

Ashley – Erin S.

How can we ever repay your kindness and compassion. You provide a service that only a heart of gold can offer. Our precious Ashley passed so quickly that we called you in panic terrified that he would suffer needlessly. May God grant you the strength to always take care of those who need you. God bless and thank you so very very much.

- Lisa M.

So glad to have found you and your services.

Annie – Maryanne M.

This is such a wonderful gift to give your best friend for their send off. It helped my Annie not stress over the car ride and gave her peace to be in her favorite chair.

Rommel – Dave & Andrea K

Dr. Cornelius, Thank you so much for your professionalism and compassion in helping our Rommel. We were so relieved that he was able to pass away peacefully under the shade of an oak tree with Dave by his side on the property he had protected for 10 years. It is never an easy time, but because of your service Rommel passed away with the dignity he so deserved. Thank you so much

Lady – Doug D.

Thanks so much for your help with my neighbors Black lab, Lady. It was time to go and having you there made it much more bearable. I'm glad we decided to go the home route vs. taking he in to a vet.

Bella - Paul & Lynn C.

Thanks for being a great medical professional who inspired confidence, and thanks for being a sensative human being.

Owie - Owie's Family

God lent us this special soul for sixteen years in our family dog, Owie. He was my constant companion, as being a therapy dog, he was with me all day as he brought great comfort to so many of my clients. In learning of his cancer, after horror passed, the process of letting go began. I alerted those I knew may want to bid farewell. I arranged times for my clients to come in, not knowing how many would show...touched that 12 came. Next step...how am I going to help Owie be comfortable in his death? Given aggressive cancer and pain not an option, and going to vet stressed him terribly, I found Dr. Cornelius through Janice Shuttlesworth, Director of Friends for Life no kill shelter. The plan in action: Dr. Cornelius to come to our home, family and friends come by the day before to bid him farewell, we dig the grave, and 3:00 Sunday will be his last hour. Dr. Cornelius supported me through her kind, encouraging words beforehand, and was a gentle, loving presence with my family and me, and Owie during. The sadness prior, during and after was, and is, profound, but the actual passing was quite beautiful and peaceful. My constant companion was free from his pain, and back home with God and his furry friends. Owie brought us love..Dr. Cornelius brought us comfort, death brought him peace, and time will bring me healing of the huge hole in my heart, and in every aspect of my day. He loved us well. We shall miss him so.
