As adults, the loss of a pet is extremely difficult. What makes matter worse is watching our children grieve over this loss. It’s often their first lesson in dealing with grief and the healing process.
Creating a memorial garden does not have to be complicated, at all. It can be as simple as displaying a pet memorial stone in an area of your garden surrounded by seasonal flowers with a Memorial Tree. Having your child help with the design of the memorial garden will help with the healing process. Allow them to pick out the flowers and help plant them. Let them know that this is their special area.
