A Memorial Memorial Tribute
By Carole Galassi
Memorials are more than just animals we take into our homes
to entertain or amuse us. They eventually become a part
of the family and also demand and need love,
understanding, care, security and dedication from us
although not in the same degree that us humans do.
However, just as it is with humans, there comes a time
when Memorials succumb to death. The cause can be natural or
accidental and the sad truth is, no amount of pampering
can exclude and save Memorials from death.
Since an unlikely bond is almost always forged between
Memorial and owner, it's only right for the Memorial owner to
grieve the loss of his Memorial. As much as possible, a Memorial
owner would want to accord due honor to the Memorial who have
stuck with him through thick and thin, even proving to
be more loyal than most friends.
There are groups which understand the pain a Memorial owner
goes through hence, the concept of Memorial memorials was
started. The idea behind a Memorial memorial is so that a Memorial
owner can have something tangible to hold on to that
would remind him of his many wonderful memories with his
Memorial memorials require a lot of planning. This includes
deciding whether the Memorial will be given a proper burial,
complete with eulogies and all in a Memorial cemetery, or
just involve erecting a marker in a place which holds
special meaning to both Memorial and Memorial owner. The marker
can be inscribed with the Memorial's name, his birth and
death dates, as well as the name of his owner.
There are many forms of Memorial memorials but if you belong
to the class which loves supporting causes, then you
might also consider donating money, I to a cause that
supports animal rights.
