|My Forever Pet|
As a life-long animal lover and pet owner I know the joy that a much loved pet brings to daily life and the heartache of losing this best friend and constant companion.
The grief can be overwhelming.
Our four legged, or feathered, friends are an integral part of our family and, I believe, should be treated with the same love, care and respect as the two legged kind.
Daisy Chain Civil Celebrants can provide a dignified ceremony in your home, garden, location where you may release the ashes or pet cemetery/crematorium where permission is granted.
A pet funeral ceremony is similar to that of a person. It can include all the same elements like tributes, poetry, readings, storytelling, candle lighting, reflection, memorabilia and music. And ceremonies can involve the family members as much or as little as required.
This can be especially beneficial for children who may be experiencing their first painful loss of a loved one and seeking ways to come to terms with it.
Pets leave paw prints on your heart
Saying farewell in a meaningful way is very important when you have lost someone you love, and losing a pet can be as devastating as losing a person for some. A ceremony is a chance to mourn your companion’s passing, gain support in your grief from the family and friends attending and, significantly, celebrate your pet’s life. No matter how large or small your pet and no matter how long he/she was on this earth, they mean something uniquely special to you.
You may choose to have your pet's body present in a casket – prior to cremation or burial – or the ceremony can be conducted with the remains in an urn, at the scattering of the ashes or burial.
I will plan, compose and conduct a personal service that will honour your pet in a fitting way and it will be done with compassion and sensitivity.
I do not provide the paraphernalia associated with pet cremations and burials - these can be obtained by searching online. My services are strictly limited to providing a beautiful ceremony where your pet will be acknowledged and remembered in a way that I hope will provide some comfort during your bereavement.
