Celebrate LA TOUSSAINT for our companions


Posted by CHICANIMAUX, 10/2018, Advisor, Auxiliary Animal Care.

As in many cultures, paying homage to our missing is a custom rooted in French customs. Although All Saints' Day is a Catholic holiday, many honor their missing throughout the world for no religious reason. The honor of our dear ones is for a lot of importance. Whether happy or sad, this memory is important for all, it is the work of memory. Each person does his remembrance work in his own way. All Saints Day for our companions is very important to me. They are only part of our life, but we are all theirs. Our companions share our lives and our memories, to celebrate their memory is to give them back the place they occupied in our families.

When one chooses the burial or the incineration with recovery of the urn, it is "easier" to be able to pay homage to them in front of concrete, in front of oneself. Some people decide to let the companion go to the garden of memories. In this situation it is then possible to devote to them a permanent altar or not. To dedicate a simple thought to them is to remember. All Saints should not be only for the man, the TOUSSAINT is for ALL our loved ones missing.

So no matter how you remember ... remember that you have been their life, remember, whether in the All Saints' Day or every day.
