Annual Pet Memorial Event in Sherman
Dr. Dale Krier and Creature Comforts: In-home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia will host an event on September 9 from 5:30 to 7pm at Sherman Town Beach Pavilion, to honor National Pet Memorial Day 2018. In honor of the lives of pets that have a place in our hearts, music will be provided by Bob O’ Connor with Barrie Sachs from Happy Rainbows playing singing bowls.
Mariya Hurwitz will lead a meditation while Cynthia O’Connor photographs the event. Dr. Jorge Aguilar-Zanatta, MD, MS, the medical director of Psychiatry Consultation Service and Hospital Psychiatry, will discuss bereavement and how the death of a pet is equal to the death of a human family member. Another guest speaker will be Officer PJ Conway, an explosive detection K-9 handler with the Connecticut State Police’s Emergency Services Unit. There will be a candle-lighting ceremony and surprise guests.
Attendees are respectfully requested to leave their living pets at home for this event. Bring a photo of your lost pet to place on the “memorial wall” if you so desire.
