I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write after receiving our Leilani
back several weeks ago.
It had been so rough to lose Leilani. Abandoned at the Maui
Humane Society, she was one of four dogs we brought back to Oregon
to find a home for some six and a half years ago. Well, we ended up
being that home for her.
I had promised Lei that she would never be abandoned again.
Then, last summer, she went into kidney failure while we were in
France. We thought she'd been stabilized from the heart failure she
had been suffering from, but while we were gone, she became gravely
When we returned to Oregon, I noticed how sweet Leilani
appeared. I decided to start looking on the internet for a way to be
able to keep Leilani's body and found your company.
I had my concerns, but when I saw our little Lei after all the
months she was gone, I was so pleased to see how sweet and alive she
looked. So many times I've looked at her and thought of such things
like, "How did she get on the mantle?" Yep, Leilani is curled up and
appears asleep on our fireplace mantle. When my neighbor saw her,
she thought that we got a new dog. That's how alive she looks.
Some people think we're strange and maybe we are. But it is
comforting to see our little girl resting here at home forever.
We're very grateful for the great work you do.
Pictures of the babies...
Hello everyone there,
I know I said I would send you pictures of the babies a long
time ago and I appologize for not doing it sooner. Also, these are
not of them in there case. I will send those when I can figure out
my camera. I would also like to thank you for using my name as a
reference. The people I have spoken with are all very pleasent. I
just hope that I can help them with their questions. I remember how
it was to want to talk to someone about it. I can't thank all of you
enough for all your help and understanding through such a hard time
in my life. You really do care about the animal and the person, I
believe that with all my heart. Keep doing what yall do best.
Best wishes hope all is well.

We got Minnie back...
She looks so perfect! I can't believe how
perfect she looks. She's not messed up or dead looking at all. I
can't wait to get Chip back and see him again. It's like we never
lost Minnie at all in a way. When I think of how she'd wind up had
we buried her lost forever and never see her again looking like this
I'm so glad this was available to do to keep her forever. Thank you
so much! I'll get E.T. , my pug to you as soon as I can. She's our
10yr old blind Pug that died last summer of heart failure and is
still in the
freezer. We just didn't expect to lose Chip of cancer so
unexpectedly or we would've sent her next. But I'll get her to you
asap so they can both be coming home closer together. Thank you
again so much for all your servises and any time any of our pets
passes away (and we have many pets) we'll call you to make them
beautiful forever so we won't ever have to say goodbye completely
P.S. My mother was fighting cancer when we brought Minnie to
our home. It was during those last four months they told her she had
to live and Minnie was her constant companion because she was sickly
at the time too. They stayed together. We buried my mom with
Minnie's original ID tag and her little t shirt she had to wear
because she had no hair when we got her. It was especially
hard losing Minnie after my mom because of how close she was to her.
It's in a way like we're glad we saved my mom's little dog from
being lost forever because she was special to her. Thank you again.
The Return of My Poppi...
To Everyone at AEWS,
I finally received my Poppi last week!
I want to thank you and everyone who were involved with her
preservation. She looks fantastic!! The time and care that was put
into her certainly shows. I have phoned a few times on her progress
and never felt that I was "bothering" anyone. All my questions were
answered with sensitivity and knowledge. I truly felt as though all
involved knew what I was going through. Les is wonderful!!
I am thankful that this procedure that has allowed her to be
back home with me. I miss her tremendously and feel that having her
back helps fill part of that void. I was nervous at first thinking I
would not be able to handle her, just laying there, but after the
inital return and tears, I do not regret having this procedure done.
She is where she belongs.
Once again, THANK YOU....for allowing my angel to be with me
Elena ......of PA
I received 'Nerok' today like you said I would. She
looks great. Exactly like the picture and how I asked for her to be.
She looks like she is comfortably sleeping. A guest came over and
was astounded. They definitely want to do the same when their cat
passes. I appreciate you accomodating me through the mail with all
the explicit directions and providing all the materials. I didn't
feel like I needed to scramble to find anything. Again, much thanks
for the great work and your professionality in handling her. There
is no such thing as a quick turn around when it comes to something
so important as this. As a funeral director/embalmer, I have a
curiosity (and only a curiosity) for other preservation techniques.
So, I already knew how this should be done. Everyone else on the
internet was claiming quick turnaround and spoke nothing of quality
and technique which of course disturbed me immensely. You guys
definitely backed up your website. Thank you! We(my fiancÚ and I)
are so happy to have her home!

Dear Anthony Eddy:
I recieved J.J. my cocker spaniel last week. You did a
wonderful job on him.
My little female cocker (JENA) Thinks he is all her's. He real
son (JAX) cant get near him. But he would like to. Jena sleeps with
him and protects him with her life. I am sending pics of the two of
them.. It's hard to tell which one is alive.
Anyway thanks a million.. A job that is unbelievable well
Your friend...Debra B. from Tenn.
About my cat...
Wed, 05 Apr 2006
To all that worked on my beautiful cat,
Please know how
completely pleased I am with the job you did with my cat. The pose
he is in is so typical for him, a perfect result of the phone
conversation we had before he was 'set', where you asked me the
correct questions and carried out my answers perfectly. The very
high level of skill and care that went into his work is most obvious
and greatly appreciated.
His fur is just as silky as ever and he looks exactly like he
used to. And even though I can never again hear his 'cordlike' voice
or his frequent purring, it's good to know that at least his vocal
chords and purring mechanisms (whatever they are) are still there.
Not to mention how easy he is to take care of now and, considering
he was an indoor/outdoor cat, that I'll never have to worry about
where he is again.
The thing I find to be the most surprising, though, is how
much I feel like a big part of a void in my life has been filled
again, permanently! I never expected so good a result or such a good
feeling from it.
Please know that the reason I chose you was that your web site
made it clear that this would not be a fast process, while your
competition emphasized speed. So, having a very long term view of
all this, I went with you. If ever something was worth the wait,
this is it for me!
Appreciatively, John K.
Thank you so much for the great job you and your staff did on my dog
Lucy. It is amazing how life like she looks. I think the freeze -
dry process is the only way to go with preserving animals. Up until
now I had only read about the process and seen it on T.V. however
you cannot realize the life like appearance of it till you see it
first hand. Again thank you all and I will keep you in mind for any
future pets and will highly recommend you to as many people as
Yours truly, Rose and Bill

Dear Anthony and Rosalyn,
I wanted to write and thank you fur the absolutely incredible work
that you did on my pet, Peanut the basset hound. I had seen some of
your work when I brought Peanut in to you after her death, and I was
truly amazed at how natural the animals appeared. And that of course
to me is the really impressive thing, your creative expertise in
making the animals seem as if they are just observing you and
resting, and not truly having passed from this life. At that time
when I brought her in I got to see a beautiful golden cocker spaniel
that had just been completed and was soon to be going home. She was
so life like that I felt I should offer her a dog treat. This image
always made me smile as I know how happy her family must have been
to have her come home, and how thrilled they must have been to see
what a wonderful transformation you brought about. When I had to
leave my beloved pet behind with you, I was comforted that she would
be loving and caring people.
I tried to refrain from
anticipating what I would feel when I saw my beloved pet for the
first time when I came to pick her up. Nothing could have prepared
me for the joy and happiness in seeing her and being able to touch,
pet, and kiss her again. I finally felt that my heart had mended and
I could move forward. I had felt so incomplete after her death, and
missed her so much. Having her back home with me has finally given
me a sense of peace and joy that I never anticipated. When I had
decided to have her freeze dried, I thought it would be just for me,
as some family members looked at me kind of funny after hearing
this. But now those family members are making unannounced stops
during the day to just say hi--to me I presume, but also they just
want to see Peanut again. Everyone who has been here to see her have
all had the same reaction and the same words; "she looks so
natural". And in that lies the beauty of your work. I so much
appreciate your small touches that mean so much to me; the wrinkles
of skin between her ears and eyes, and especially her little tuft of
fluffy fur by her tail that we fondly called her "curly butt".
I also want to say thank you for all of your kindness and
understanding in my phone calls to you. -You were always helpful and
your patience was truly appreciated. Again, I can't thank you enough
for the beautiful work done on Peanut. Please know that you are
fondly thought of often, as without you I would not have my
beautiful sweet girl back home with me.
Dear Anthony Eddy and Staff,
We got our precious Meezer home this afternoon. We cannot believe
how beautiful she looks. Your work is absolutely amazing.
Meezer looks as though she is sleeping..Both Richard and I feel like
we have our "Darling Girl" back.
We can't thank you enough
for your kindness and understanding.
It feels so good to have Meezer home and we are so glad that
we made the decision to preserve her. We had no idea that Meezer
would look so beautiful, or that we would have our pain eased so
much by having her home with us. Seeing Meezer took the pain away.
Thank you so much. There are no words to express the comfort of
having Meezer back home with us where she belongs. Everyone
was so kind and understanding while we waited for the process to be
done. Once again thank you so much for your kindness and beautiful
Donna & Richard
You are always welcome to share our feeling with anyone
considering preserving their pet
