Welcome to the Memory Page. This is the place on our website where we come when we want to look back and reflect on our friends and family that we have lost over the years. We take solace in knowing that they are waiting for us to come and join them at the Meadow on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Until then, this is the best we can do.
Cosita’s name was, for the most part, very fitting for her personality, as it means “pretty little thing” in Spanish.
In her own mind, Cosita was the alpha, though in truth that honor was held by Bennie, whom by the way was the only creature that Cosita ever met that she feared.
Cosita was diagnosed with cancer early in 2017 and fought bravely until she passed on in November. Cosita holds a special place in Cindee’s heart as her sister and mentor.
Bencinha, which is Portuguese for “little blessing” was born in Miami in 2006. Everyone called Bencinha by her nickname, “Bennie”, and was also known by all the furbabies in the house as “The Original Gangster”.
Bennie was the first member of the Gang. She was discovered in the bushes crying for help in the middle of a thunderstorm. Bennie was loved and feared at the same time. She had a personality that was constantly shifting between wanting to be loved and lashing out. Bennie passed from cancer in the summer of 2018.
Bella was born in Miami in May 2009. She was very proud of her name, which is Spanish for “Beautiful”. Throughout her life, she could be found pampering and grooming herself. “Looks are important Darling,” she once said.
It was this natural beauty and the way she carried herself with humans that often drew the ire of the rest of the Gang who were jealous of the attention that she would get.
Though she was concerned with always looking her best, she had a heart filled with love. If there was a sad soul in the house, Bella was there to console them. Bella passed from a sudden respiratory illness in February 2023.
