Creating a Lasting Memorial
A pet funeral or memorial service is just one of the ways you can honor your pet. Some common elements to include when arranging a pet funeral are
- Candle Lighting: Many people like to include a simple candle lighting ceremony since it is an appropriate way to symbolize the spiritual nature of the ceremony.
- Prayers and Blessings: Depending on religious beliefs, an appropriate prayer of blessing may be included.
- Memorial Photographs and Videos: People often display photos of their pet which represent the spirit of the animal. If the location of the ceremony will allow and you have video footage of your pet interacting with family members, this can be a wonderful way to remember your pet.
