Grave Stones for Pets create Tributes For Ever in Life
Although many may not think so, including pet owners, the loss of a pet can be just as devastating as that of a close friend, or even relative. Pet owners who have recently lost a pet often feel reluctant, even embarrassed, to admit the sad state that the loss of a beloved companion may have left them in. Whether we like to admit it or not, actually losing a companion pet that we have grown close with can certainly leave us feeling as if there is a large void, not only in our homes, but also our lives. This stands with reason, actually, as Sandra Barker, director of the Center for Human-Animal Interaction at Virginia Commonwealth University explains. "The difference is the pet gave them constant companionship, and there was total dependency". In other words, whereas our friends and family members have their own lives, own obligations, which requires most, if not all of their time, or pets are a constant in our lives, there when we leave, and when we come back. When we look at it that way, it is more than understandable how the loss of a beloved companion that stood as that constant source of comfort in our lives can be very traumatic.
Creating a tribute to honor the memory of a pet may been considered strange, even silly, by those that don't understand the extent of the loss. For the surviving pet owners, however, this small act can help ease the pain felt, as we not only memorialize our beloved companion, but also honor everything that they stood for in our lives. Pet memorial grave stones are simple stones that will hold a profound meaning. These elegant memorials are made of, as many memorials dedicated to a person, granite stone. Granite has long been utilized to create memorials as it provides a durable and long lasting material with which to create the tribute. The stone not only takes well to personalization, but also withstands the elements, often retaining the information, as well as its shape, for many years, even decades. These stones are available in a variety of designs, ranging from a simple slab that is personalized with the name, dates, and a short verse, to elaborate pieces that hold more information. One of, if not our most popular design, features a gorgeous black granite, which is etched with not only the written information of the lost companion, but also a gorgeously etched photo. Regardless of the design, these wonderful pieces offer a wonderful final remembrance that will graciously memorialize the life of the companion that gave us so much in their lifetime, without even realizing it.
One of the best ways that we can begin to cope with the loss of a pet is to create a tribute in their memory. The tribute does not have to be elaborate or expensive, but simply adequate to create a remembrance that will not only honor the life of the companion as we see fit, but also provide a place for us to go and mourn the loss, or simply remember happier times shared with the pet. For many, a pet memorial grave stone can provide a beautiful memorial that captures the memory of a lost pet.
