Initially the inspiration for Precious Memories
was to honor the passing of Lisa's beloved pet Darth. With limited options, Lisa inquired about burial in a local cemetery. Upon learning that pet burial was not allowed in cemeteries dedicated for people, she decided on cremation. Disappointed with the service that was offered, Lisa and her father Harold came to the conclusion that there needed to be a place in Northern Colorado
that catered to the needs of people once their pets had passed.
The next step was getting what used to be a seven acre farm, re-zoned to become a pet cemetery. After many months of soil testing and endless paperwork, along with air pollution studies for the crematory, Precious Memories was given the green light to open. Darth is now buried beneath the statue of Saint Francis just outside the office.
