Honoring World Pet Memorial Day

Today is World Pet Memorial Day…we at Summit Veterinary Referral Center, are thinking of those of you who are grieving your beloved animal friends who have gone before you. Our hearts are with you…

Who have you been remembering today? What memorials or rituals are you incorporating to honor your special friend?

As you reflect on your relationship, what was unique about him or her and your time together? What are your favorite memories? As you pay tribute and reflect on your life together, think about the lessons your friend has taught you (and continue to teach you) that have inspired personal growth or perhaps offered you a legacy of their life that you have paid forward to others. As you move beyond today and honor your bond, I wish for you feelings of joy and gratitude for the many memories…and hope, peace and comfort when you find yourself missing your friend.

In honor of you and your beloved animals ~

I AM STILL WITH YOU

If it seems that I am far away
on this empty and solemn day.
Just open your heart and know it’s true
that I am still right here with you.
If during the day things are going wrong
please don’t feel sad and alone.
Just open your heart and know it’s true
that I am still right here with you.
When night time falls and the day is done
If you are feeling alone and sleep won’t come
Just open your heart and know it’s true
that I am still right here with you.
Close your eyes, and feel the warm embrace
Sleep peacefully in the wings of grace
If sadness finds you in the morning light
if you feel alone, don’t give up trying
Hold this feather close and know it’s true
that I am always here with you.
