It seems I’m focusing quite a bit on death this week, but I’d like to know your opinion on the Rainbow Bridge idea. It’s a sweet, helpful grief recovery mechanism for many people, I’m sure. I’d like to believe my pets who have passed on will be there waiting. What about you?
Have you ever had to deal with the grief of losing a beloved pet? No one wants to go through this, but if you have pets long enough, you will eventually deal with their loss. As hard as it is for us as adults, think about how much more difficult it would be to process the loss as a child. To address this concern, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Barbara Walsh has written “Sammy in the Sky” to help parents help their children through the death of a pet.
