A Note From Kevin

Founder, Speaker, Listener

To my friends and fellow grievers,

I want to personally say that I’m sorry for your loss. The loss of a pet is a profound loss, and it’s a loss unlike any other. You have experienced a great loss, and you deserve to grieve that loss. We bond greatly with our pets—they are family. They are ALWAYS there for us, especially through the most difficult times. They have shown us true forms of uncondi- tional love. It’s no wonder we feel such profound grief when they leave us.

The sudden silence is deafening. The broken routines, unused toys and medicine, empty food dishes and beds are all painful reminders. For a while, our home can become just a house—a shell for our memories. This new chapter in your life will be difficult. There is no such thing as “just getting over” a profound loss. It can feel like a giant hole has been ripped through us and it can take a long time to adjust to our new “normal”.

This booklet is meant to be used as a guide to help you in the hard days ahead. Inside, you will find activities and information about grief and how to find comfort and support if you need.

I want to personally tell you that you are not alone on this journey. There are many, many people who also share your feelings and your struggles, and I am one of them.

We need to surround ourselves with those who understand and can support us through this loss. Anytime that you feel alone, overcome with grief, or without anyone who will listen, we’re just a phone call or click away. Come see what our community is like.

Sincerely,

Kevin.
