Losing Companion Animals hurts . . .
From Rebecca Skinner
Celebrants & Celebrations Network Australia Celebrant Member
Animals provide companionship, acceptance, emotional support and unconditional love.
They become part of our family, a much loved friend, and a large part of our lives. So when they’re no longer with us, it’s quite normal to feel an intense sorrow and the pain of loss and separation.
A memorial service embraces the grieving process, acknowledges a special relationship with a pet and offers comfort to those that have loved and lost. It is also a chance to celebrate their life and to remember all the happy times together. Anatole France, a French poet, journalist, and novelist famously remarked: “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”
The TCN has celebrants all over the country for all occasions plus those experienced in creating pet memorials. You and your family no longer have to grieve alone for your beloved pet.
Why not organise a celebrant who can create a meaningful ceremony to pay tribute to your pet and the happy times you enjoyed? Invite those people who also loved your pet.
You'll find this will be the start of the healing process for you all.
Did you have a loved Companion Animal you would like to honour?

Beautifully said Rebecca, and yes I wholeheartedly agree with you. Animals are God's gift to humans whereas like us they to - evolve.
