When we lose a pet, our hearts break. They are constant companions.
A pet is a member of the family. Pets bring us unconditional love; they can be the glue between us; they teach us to live in the moment, to forgive, to play and to rest.
We never forget them so they live on in our hearts and memories
Yet, we want to say goodbye to their time with us so that we can thank them and express the joys of having them and the grief at losing them.
There are decisions to make about what we do with them or their ashes, and about some kind of constant memorial on which we can focus our love.
We can have a very simple ceremony in a garden, their favourite place, or use the chapel at a pet cemetery.
