Other Suggestions to Mark National Pet Memorial Day

Sep 10, 2010

This Sunday, September 12th is National Pet Memorial Day.  Some great suggestions were shared on how to remember your “best friend” and companion who have passed away:

1.  Write a letter to your pet expressing feelings you may be struggling with, tell them how much you miss them, or thank them for the wonderful memories you have.

2. Share photographs and stories with family or friends.

3. Create an online memorial, in can be on a pet memorial website, a blog, or even a Facebook page.

A Time to Remember  – By John Quealy

photoThey come into our lives for such a short time

A time we wouldn’t trade not even for a dime

Then before you know it the years have flown by

And then all of the sudden we’re saying good-bye

It wasn’t that long ago we said our good-byes

We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes

Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove

Into God’s loving arm’s; in heaven above

Over the days we’ve shed many tears

But the memories we have will live on for years

We feel your presence and we know that your near

You’re keeping us safe and calming our fear

We think about memories from years past

When you were young and strong and ran so fast

We remember all the great times that we all had

How you always made us happy never made us mad

They were the best and happiest years we had

We’ll always look back on them and never be sad

We look forward to the time we’ll be together again

And we thank the Lord for such a great friend

Now you run and play up in Heaven above

Cradled in God’s arms covered with his love

Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day

We come down thru the meadow to the bridge to stay

The love that you showed us we’ll never forget

Because to us you’re one very special pet

You’re like a star in the dark of night

Always watching over us with the Lord’s light

So now we take time to remember our best friend

Who will always be with us even to the end

We’ll always remember you the way you were

One big lovable huggable pile of fur

    My vet sent the Furry Angel Memorial Candle to me when I put my dog to sleep. I never forgot the kindness and what the healing light of this candle meant to me.
