The Nicole J. Redisch
Memorial Wall & Garden

Pet Memorial Wall

December 2005 began as any ordinary winter month. That changed drastically when we learned that one of our family had a deadly disease most of us were only vaguely aware of.

Nicole Redisch, one of our licensed veterinary technicians and daughter of our practice owner, had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Sadly, Nicole lost her fight with cancer on August 8, 2006. We are grateful for the time we shared with her. She will remain a part of us through our memories and the bond she helped create.

Together, we will move past our grief and celebrate her life. We will honor her memory by making a difference on her behalf. We have built a memorial wall and garden in honor of Nicole and in memory of the pets we have cherished and lost. It is our hope that we can help others in need and make a difference with our contributions. Funds for the wall were made available through cookbook sales and private donations.

Your pets’ names can be engraved on our wall for a modest donation. Your contribution is a fitting tribute to the bond you share with your companion animals. You may decide if the net proceeds from your contribution are donated to ovarian cancer or animal cancer research.


Love doesn’t die, people do. So when all that is left of me is love, give me away.”

Maryse and I wish to thank you and your staff for such sensitivity to us, as we sought help for Nica, our chameleon. We appreciate your thoroughness, professionalism. We will share with other pet owners how easy you made an otherwise unhappy experience for us!

–Pam Richards and daughter Maryse

Thank You all very much for taking such good care of me during my little sickness.

– Kia

Thank you so much for everything you did for Quincy. You saved his life!

Your approach and demeanor with us always made us feel as if we and Sabrina were the only ones there.

I will never stop giving thanks for your knowledge, caring and thoughtfulness to Ginger and I.

Dr. Herdon–I would like to thank you and the entire staff at Union Lake for always taking great care of our Peter. Since the treatment he has been running and playing like a puppy. In my personal opinion the Shockwave therapy has worked and I would recommend it to other potential patients.

– Elizabeth and Scott DuSang

I want to thank the entire staff and at the dog training/day care, as well as the grooming/boarding services for the over 20 years of excellent care.

Thank you so much for everything you did for Quincy. You saved his life! He's doing really well. He's getting his attitude back and soon will be running roughsod over our other cats.

Thank you so very much for your kindness and support during Maggie's final hours...the peaceful experience we had with you could not have been better and I was very glad to have been a part of it...she lived a long, wonderful life, and thanks to you, she had an easy end. Thank you.

...your approach and demeanor with us always made us feel as if we and Sabrina were the only ones there...(you were) forthright and honest. We are so grateful for all you did for us and Sabrina.

God gave you a wonderful skill and talent. I will never stop giving thanks for your knowledge, caring and thoughtfulness to Ginger and I.

Words cannot express how grateful we are that our Maggie had such a wonderful group of people to care for her over the past 12 years. She was always greeted with smiles and treated as though she were one of your own.

Thank you for taking care of me so well. My stitches are doing good and I am getting used to the undershorts my mom makes me wear. My teeth are so nice and clean and I'm eating the new dental crunches.

Jacob always received the best care and kindness/treatment at your facility. Thank you for helping Jacob have a healthy and quality life and a dignified passing. It is a comfort to know all the staff present on the day Jacob passed away were sensitive and professional to us at that difficult time. This includes the front desk staff.

I want to thank the entire staff at Union Lake Vet. and at the dog training/day care, as well as the grooming/boarding services for the over 20 years of excellent care you have provided to our pets. It is hard to find another provider that matches your caliber of dedication, love, and superior health care for animals.

– Sandra Reminga

Dr. Herdon,In the course of our adult lives, we have owned six dogs between us and have experienced a variety of veterinarians. It's this experience that makes it possible for us to fully appreciate just how extraordinary you are. The compassion you showed for Jesse throughout her life and into her final hours puts you in a class of your own. We are truly blessed to call you our vet. Thank you.

– Leslie and Susan
