I’ll never forget the day my wife and I brought home our beloved dog Sadie. Sadie provided years of joy and companionship and aged gracefully alongside me and my wife. At a certain point, her once boundless energy began to wane, replaced by a quiet wisdom that seemed to speak volumes.

As Sadie’s time began drawing to a close, my wife and I found ourselves faced with a difficult decision. We knew we wanted to find a final resting place for Sadie that would honor her memory. However, we also wanted to ensure that the cemetery we chose would be around for the long haul. After much research and contemplation, my wife and I came upon Bideawee’s Pet Memorial Parks, a place with a rich history and a reputation for providing compassionate care to beloved pets and their families. We were drawn to Bideawee’s commitment to honoring the bond between humans and animals, and we knew we had found the perfect place for Sadie.

We decided to lay Sadie to rest at Bideawee’s beautiful Westhampton Pet Memorial Park, a serene oasis nestled amidst the natural beauty of the East End of Long Island. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice. The staff at Bideawee were kind and compassionate, guiding us through every step of the process with warmth and empathy. The park itself was a testament to the love and dedication of pet parents past and present, a place of solace where memories could be cherished and hearts could find healing. My wife and I were so grateful for the peace of mind that Bideawee had brought us during such a difficult time. I knew I wanted in some way to be part of that going forward, to ensure that other families could experience the same sense of comfort when it came time to say goodbye to their beloved pets.

So, we decided to become Kibbe members and put Bideawee in our estate plans to specifically help preserve their Pet Memorial Parks. It was important for us to leave a legacy gift that would help safeguard the everlasting care of people’s beloved animals and until then, we did not realize how easy a process it is. In honoring Sadie’s memory, we found a way to make a lasting impact on generations of animals and the people who love them to come.
