Their Lives are Brief - By Robin Spataro of Together Forever

No one can really empathize with you on grief until they have felt it themselves.  It feels especially true with your pets.  Only pet lovers know the feeling of loss when a piece of them is gone.  Others think you should get over it, it was only a dog or a cat, a bird, a snake etc.   How can they understand that a piece of you dies when your pet dies.

Grief effects people in many different ways. The most important step you can take is to be honest about your feelings. Don’t deny your pain, or your feelings of anger and guilt. Only by examining and coming to terms with your feelings can you begin to work through them. You have a right to feel pain and grief.  Someone you loved has died, and you feel alone and bereaved. You have a right to feel anger and guilt, as well.

Locking away grief doesn’t make it go away. Express it. Cry, scream, pound the floor, talk it out. Do what helps you the most. Don’t try to avoid grief by not thinking about your pet; instead, reminisce about the good times. This will help you understand what your pet’s loss actually means to you. Some find it helpful to express their feelings and memories in poems, stories, or letters to the pet. Other strategies including rearranging your schedule to fill in the times you would have spent with your pet; preparing a memorial such as a photo collage; and talking to others about your loss.

I Loved You Best
So this is where we part, My Friend, and you'll run on, around the bend.
Gone from sight, but not from mind, new pleasures there you'll surely find.
 
I will go on; I'll find the strength, life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave, share one last look, before I grieve.
 
There are others, that much is true, but they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought, will remember well all you've taught.
 
Your place I'll hold, you will be missed, the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest, take with you this...I loved you best.
-Jim Willis

I came up with the idea that I would like to encase a portion of my ashes in Resin Angel Wings so that I can place them in my children's gardens. I realized that if I had thought of this, others must have thought of something unique to do with their or their loved ones ashes.  Now people approach us at Pet Conventions and hug us with tears in their eyes and tell us how special our products are.   Our products help ease the pain and we have seen it when we deliver our unique memorials.  To know that they have a piece of their loved one they can place in the garden, hang on their wall or carry with them on their neck or keychain makes us feel as though we are helping fulfill the emptiness in their heart.

Although times have changed; it doesn't appear that items have changed to rest your pet's cremains.  I believe we have come up with a novel, new and innovative line of products
