Nancy Piper The Staff Pet Staff
Hi! I'm Nancy Piper. I'm often asked how I ended up in the pet burial and cremation  business. In 1977 I had a very sick cat named Adam Blu. I thought he was going to die.  I talked about what I was going to do with his body. I figured I'd bury him in my back  yard and buy a gravestone from one of my human cemetery friends to mark his grave. I  was working with human cemeteries at the time. Adam Blu recovered. I was at a  cemetery convention in Ohio in 1978. Somebody told me the pet cemetery in Kansas  City was for sale. What??!!?? Pet cemetery in Kansas City?? Where I live?? I came  back home, found it, and bought it. My cat Adam Blu was buried at Rolling Acres in  1984. I didn't know there were pet cemeteries, pet crematories, pet caskets, pet urns,  etc. All the services and products available for humans are also available for pets, those  wonderful members of our families.  That's how I came to own a pet cemetery and crematory. Also, I love pets, I love people,  and I love the cemetery business, so it is a perfect business for me. It's where I can  help most. Now it's a perfect business for my husband and me. In 1995, Gary Piper and  I were married. His family of one dog and two cats joined mine of two dogs and one cat,  two horses and one mule. Gary came to work at Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens that  same year. I am blessed. Now we have office cats, house cats, and barn cats along  with 2 dogs, numerous horses and mules and a donkey as our family.  If you have any questions or concerns, or if I can help you in anyway, e-mail me at nancypiper@visitrollingacres.com or call me at 816-891-8888.
