Pet Memorials

Why have a memorial for your pet?

When a person you love dies, it’s natural to feel sorrow, express grief, and expect support and comfort from friends and family. Unfortunately, the same doesn’t always hold true if the one who died was your beloved pet. There are those who may trivialize, or even consider inappropriate, the grief associated with the loss of a companion animal. Nothing could be further from the truth.

People love their pets and consider them members of their family. Animals provide companionship, acceptance, emotional support, and unconditional love during the time they share with you. So when your beloved pet dies, it’s not unusual to feel overwhelmed by the intensity of your sorrow. If you understand and accept this bond between humans and animals, you’ve already taken the first step toward coping with pet loss: knowing that it is okay to grieve when your pet dies.
