The bond we share with animals is especially pure: one hundred percent love, undiluted and unadulterated.
Because the relationship is so direct and powerful, the grief we experience when our pets die can be profound and intense.
From the moment pets come into our lives, we know the day will arrive when we have to say farewell.
Still, we are never emotionally prepared for the last adieu. In Goodbye, Friend, Gary Kowalski takes you on a journey of healing, offering warmth and sound advice on how to cope with the death of your pet.
Filled with heartwarming stories and practical guidance on such matters as taking care of yourself while mourning, creating rituals to honor your pet's memory, and talking to children about death, Goodbye, Friend is a beautiful and comforting book for anyone grieving the loss of a beloved animal.
There are no easy recipes for healing.
There are no quick repairs for an aching heart.
But this route has been traveled before, by poets, philosophers, therapists, and wisdom teachers of all traditions.
Mourning is hard work.
But I will share the guideposts, beacons, and spiritual practices that have helped others on the path toward resolution, healing, acceptance, and peace.
