We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan. – Irving Townsend
Please join us the third Thursday of each month from 7:00pm – 8:30pm in the Robert J. Orsher Conference Room at VSEC Levittown for our Pet Loss Remembrance Circle.
Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your pet. We understand that losing a beloved member of the family is very hard.
We would love for you to attend the Pet Loss Remembrance Circle, whether you lost your pet recently or long ago. This is a special time for you to begin to your recovery and healing. It is our goal that you leave with a sense of understanding and acceptance of the feelings you’ve experienced with this loss.
“I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to come but I realized I didn’t have to be. I could cry and be understood.”
“The caring and professional way Carol brought out what everyone was feeling was extremely helpful.”
Please pre-register by sending your name, contact information (in the rare case of cancellation), your pet’s name and a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org.
