Pet owners often feel the same love and attachment to their pets as they do to any other family members. They may lovingly refer to them as their "children". It is easy to see why. These animals offer affection and acceptance that is wholly unconditional. They freely give their owners the emotional support and lifelong companionship all people seek. It is no wonder the death of a pet causes such inexplicable grief. A pet memorial service offers the owner comfort and a chance to share feelings with those in attendance. It allows for the celebration of a wonderful friend's life, while remembering the joy the pet brought to so many.
