Bartlett - Established 1884 in New York City
This is Reverend Renee Karen, and I wish to personally impart to my visitors and clients that I have a very special place in my heart for those people who have lost an animal or pet. I know since I recently lost my favorite family dog, Kookie. The wonderful thing about this loss, however, was the living realization that this beautiful friend of mine is not dead but lives "on the other side," guiding me in every word you are reading right now.

So I have a very special place in my heart for those who are grieving for their lost pets, and therefore I offer a service within which I can put you directly in touch with your departed pet, as if it were in the same room with you now, so that you might see that there is life ever lasting.... even in the pet world.

Your pet deserves to be remembered with family and friends, in a Loving Good-bye. Rev Renee can provide a personalized memorial Service for your precious pet that can be performed in the privacy of your own home.

Having a printed copy of the ceremony and special readings may, at first, seem like a luxary, but it is not. In truth, having this tangable item with it's ability to add to your cherished memory of your pet is an important aid to your greiving, and therefore, an important part of the greifing process.

Here is a poem written to express some of the feelings your animal may have on this subject about "When It's Time to Say Goodbye":

  If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep
Then you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle, can’t be won
You will be sad- I understand
Don’t let your grief then stay your hand
For this day, more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test
We’ve had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears
You do not want me to suffer, so
When the time comes, please let me go.
I know in time you too will see
It is a kindness you do to me
Although my tail, it’s last had waved
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved.
Don’t grieve that it should be you
Who has decided this thing to do
We’ been so close, we two these years
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
