  • Dr. Kristina made Pete's passing as peaceful as it possibly could have been and we are so grateful to her and to A Gentle Goodbye for the service you provide. Pete was so so special and gave nothing but love to us every day of his life. As sad as we are, we know that thanks to you, we were able to give him the most loving final moments we could have.

  • Dr. Molly's job is impossibly hard — to be there for a family who has made the tough choice to say goodbye to a family member — and she did it with a level of grace and love that we will cherish always. Thanks to everyone at GG for your help, too. We can't put into words how much you made yesterday a little less horrible.

  • Dr. Molly's approach and support was so helpful as she helped make Olive's transition peaceful. And we appreciate her eulogy for Olive. Our house is quieter and we feel a hole in our lives that will take time to heal.

  • Thank you so much for the kindness and sympathy you have shown to our family during a very difficult time. We really appreciate the fact that A Gentle Goodbye has gone above and beyond to make this experience as comforting as possible. I can’t say enough about Dr. Kristina and her kind-heartedness. From the moment she stepped into our home she was not only attentive, but also genuinely compassionate to our feelings. She was professional, yet showed such a caring, human side and truly listened to our description and stories.

  • Thank you so much for the service. Dr. Molly was absolutely wonderful. I was extremely nervous about the entire situation. Dr. Molly balanced professionalism, with a genuine sensitivity that immediately put me at ease. Her caring personality helped my family, especially my daughters, through this difficult time. I cannot thank Dr. Molly and you enough for helping my family.

  • Thank you so much for your caring and help with my Greta. From the first moment I spoke with you, I felt comfortable with trusting A Gentle Goodbye to assist me and my Greta with her end of life. Dr. Kristina was also amazing. She was so compassionate and tender, and she truly cared about Greta and easing her passing. And I was completely scatter-brained that day, but she made everything easier for me, too -- as well as for my Briscoe, Greta's little sister. I appreciate Dr. Kristina so much. I will continue to highly recommend A Gentle Goodbye to every animal lover I know. Your service is positively extraordinary.

  • Dr Kristina was so kind, understanding and patient. She was slow and explained everything as she was going. She asked us to decide when to make the final injection. She made it so we have no regrets and we know he went in peace.

  • Dr. Molly is a quick study. She was absolutely perfect. I could not have asked for a better professional or a person who put us at such great ease. That was such a painful experience, but she made it so good and so decent. I am forever grateful.

  • I cannot express enough how supportive and comforting your service was to me and Sophie. Dr. Kristina was wonderful with me and with my Sophie. She was caring, compassionate and respectful. In such a difficult situation, Dr. Kristina made Sophie and me comfortable and secure. While it is always supremely difficult to make a decision about when a treasured pet has endured enough pain, I was reassured that I had chosen the appropriate time and for good reason. I was so moved by the caring way Sophie's body was transferred to the stretcher - so respectful and gentle. While this was one of my saddest days, it was also a day I will never want to forget. Please know that Dr. Kristina has the gift of compassion which surpasses many. I thank the Gentle Goodbye Team for all you have done to help me - and Sophie - through this difficult transition. Thank you for everything. You have helped me accept the inevitable and to take steps forward while appreciating the past.

  • Dr. Juliana was so kind and caring that she put me at ease the minute she walked through the door, she knew what a hard decision it was and helped me through the process. I never felt rushed and she explained the entire process which put me at ease. There aren’t words to thank you but I know there is a special place in my heart for all of you. Again, thank you for all the kind words and gestures that made my first week without Lucy much easier.

  • We want to say thank you to every member of A Gentle Goodbye team for your compassion, thoughtfulness, and deep empathy. This was an incredibly hard decision but having you all to walk alongside of us was a true blessing. Please extend my thanks to Dr. Molly. From the moment she walked in and met Charlie, he was totally comfortable. She had a really special presence and was the reassuring, calming guidance my family and I needed. I can't imagine what it's like to do this work, walking with grieving families and being there for painful moments. It takes great fortitude but I am so grateful to all of you who are called to do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • Thank you so much to you and Dr. Kristina for this incredibly kind note and the beautiful eulogy for Theo. We miss him so much every day, but we take some comfort in knowing how peaceful his last moments were, and that he isn't in pain anymore. His brother, Dennis, is a ray of sunshine in our lives right now, giving us lots of snuggles and reminding us to see the joy in life. We are incredibly grateful to Dr. Kristina and A Gentle Goodbye for helping to ease the pain of such a difficult experience. Thank you again for your support.

  • Thank you for the thoughtful email. And thank you for being available for Mandy on Saturday with very short notice. I am so grateful that you helped Mandy have such a peaceful goodbye in her own home. The eulogy was beautifully written and so touching to me. It really described her story and the wonderful bond we shared. Thank you so much for being there for Mandy and me.

  • Thank you so much for all the kindness and compassion that your entire team gave me. Dr. Kristina couldn’t have been more kind and supportive. Also, her help and guidance with my other Golden was spot on and made it much easier on both of us. You all provide the type of euthanasia experience I wish every caretaker and their pet could have.
