Pets are family, our children, babies forever.
We love and cherish our babies more than anything.
They never grow up and move away.
We are responsible for them for their entire lives.
We never want to lose them, but alas, it is inevitable.
The day will come long before we ever want or even expect.
Being prepared, planning or just knowing our options
that time less stressful and much easier
just remember them,
memorialize and celebrate
their lives in a beautiful way.
Albuquerque Pet Memorial Service inc,
established in 1999,
David E Gifford,
with 38 years experience and expertise
and his daughter Deidra,
a pet loving,
family oriented business smart, wife of Jason
and mother of Paige and Jackson, along with
their diligent staff
are the compassionate experts
and Albuquerque's best choice
pet cremations and memorial keepsakes.
After many years of traveling the country,
honing his craft
helping to establish crematories,
Dave eventually settled in Albuquerque.
He is still the only EPA certified instructor
of the cremation process residing in NM.
Of course Dave has been very successful,
but business management was never his forte.
So, a couple of years ago he decided
to completely hand
over the day to day
operations to his capable,
business savvy daughter,
This was never a typical father/daughter relationship,
Dave and Diedra did not meet until she was seventeen.
BUT, this amazing collaboration was bound to happen
and meant to be.
Definetly Kismet! Kismet that works.
While Dave was traveling the country,
grew up in a classic midwest home in Angola, Indiana.
She had always had a love for accounting and business.
She followed her dreams and recieved a bachelors degree,
with honors, in accounting and business management
from Trine University
in her home town of Angola.
Obviously, the rest is history.
Diedra, now vice president,
runs the everyday workings with precision.
The business has tripled it's visibility
since her integration in 2016.
She has implimented many new benefits
and may I say "a feminine touch",
by adding lots of bells and whistles
many more gorgeous
to remember your loved ones by.

Diedra and her staff spend time assisting you
in making just the right decisions, choosing from
their large selection of
memorial keepsakes like:
cedar-oak-walnut Paquito de Todo boxes,
brass or silver engraved plaques, ink prints,
fur clipping displays, urns of many styles like:
photo urns, locally made gourd and ceramic urns,
locked cedar chests,
engraved leather name tags,
nameplates, framed pawprints, prearranged packages,
and many many more creative and
beautiful options to choose from.
A very cool choice is
"Blooming Remembrence" a biodigradeable box,
with a heart that has flower seeds embedded
attached to the top of the box.
It is adorable, very popular,
trending right now
and comes in several sizes.
There are no mysteries involved at APMS.
You take full control of your baby's last days.
In fact, Diedra is working on a paperless

and be involved all along the way.
