Years of love and companionship have come to an end. Your friend has moved on to a new home of joyously playing without the burden of old age or illness, but they left one thing behind. They left behind an empty place in your heart. You need a way to create a place to remember your pet while releasing them. Using pet grave markers is one of the finest ways to say your final words, and give yourself a place of tribute to returning to.
We can feel very distressed at the loss of an uncle, an aunt, or a cousin, but many times the loss of our pet is even more painful. They have lived with us for years. We were their caretaker, and sometimes they were ours. In moments of sadness, they may have been the only one to lend a listening non-judgmental ear. In times of loneliness, they bounded at our feet and into our laps to provide us with moments of great joy and companionship. They were like our children, and our best friend rolled together.
When they departed for their corner of pet heaven they left behind their friend who wants to give them one more thank you. Tell everyone how you truly felt about your pet. You can find a favorite clip from a poem, a favorite quote, or just let your heart come up with some words of tribute to your pet. The locations selling the pet grave markers will offer engraving services to put your pets name, their years on the earth, and your fitting saying onto the marker.
You will need to decide whether you want your marker to be made of granite-like many gravestones, or whether you want a simple and more economical metal marker. Both are very appropriate. Either one will look great at the location you choose to put your pet to rest.
If your community does not provide a place to bury pets but requires their bodies be disposed of through cremation, you can still use pet grave markers to make a fitting area of tribute in your yard. Take a few of your pets most beloved toys, their collar, and maybe even their favorite blanket and bury a time capsule of your memories. Use the marker to identify the place of your tribute. If you choose this method of tribute, make sure to include a letter and a few pictures sealed in the box. Make sure they are sealed tightly against the weather. Twenty, fifty, or one hundred years from now someone may discover your touching tribute and share in the memories of your pet bringing their memory back to life once again.
Pet grave markers are an inexpensive and fitting way to say goodbye to your pet. They allow you to share your feelings while making a pleasant and tasteful addition to your yard or garden. You will never forget the love and friendship of your pet. Your tribute helps to make sure future generations know how special your pet was, too.
