Many people (including myself) consider our dogs part of our family. If you are planning a funeral, memorial service or celebration of life, consider bringing the departed’s dog to the service. Obviously, it will need to be a well behaved dog(s). Dogs have a great ability to heal and make people feel better – just what friends and family need at a celebration of life. Click on the video of Dana Clair Edwards’ family talking about how they added a very unique and personal touch to her celebration of life
Dana loved her dog Grit, whom she rescued. She was known for rescuing dogs and about every other kind of animal. When the family was planning her service and they were looking for ideas to pay tribute to such a wonderful person, her brother said “puppies”. Yes, they brought puppies to the service from the local adoption shelter and guess what, every puppy was adopted at the service. What a fabulous tribute to Dana and her legacy lives on.
