Celebrate, Remember, and Honor: Pet Memorial Gathering

Join us as we welcome Laurie Califf, co-author of "A Peaceful Path: A Supportive Guide Through Pet Loss", for a memorial service to honor loving companion pets that passed away.
A Message from Laurie and MJ:
The evening will consist of a slideshow of photos, lighting of a candle in memory of your pet, the sharing of stories, and support through fellowship with Laurie and MJ as well as other pet owners who have experienced loss. Please bring a photo along if you would like or to submit a photo of your pet, please e-mail to Lynn@bhacboone.com
A Message from Laurie and MJ, Authors of "A Peaceful Path: A Supportive Guide Through Pet Loss": Experiencing the death of a loved one is commonly accepted as a valid reason for grief. What may surprise you is how you or other people may respond when that loved one is a non-human companion. This is a loss you will feel daily, yet may struggle to process it.You may find yourself laughing at memories of your first days together, or working through those “what-if’s” of those last few days. All of these are necessary parts of the healing process and we hope you find comfort as you spend these days loving your companion, as well as yourself.
