A family pet cemetery in the front yard

Life & Death Matters Post

Walking in the town of Barnwell Alberta a few weeks ago I saw this family pet cemetery.  The messages are clear: “we love our pets, we will remember and honour them, kids matter, their feelings matter, and we can help them honour those they miss”.  I wondered “Who are these parents, what experiences brought them to a place of knowing the importance of remembering, how did they decide to build a pet cemetery in their front yard?”  Wow.  Good work.  Next time I am in Barnwell, I think I will go and meet them.

What did you do when you were a kid and your pets died?  Or what have you done as a parent when the  family pets have died?
