Pets become part of our families. They share in our joys as well as bring us joy, and they provide us companionship and comfort. During this time, staying safe by staying home means our plans and activities with family and friends are often curtailed. That means the pets, which keep us company and share their love with us, become even more important. We understand that the loss of human life is foremost in our minds during the pandemic, but we also acknowledge the sadness that the loss of a beloved pet is for an owner.
We understand we are not aware of everyone who has had loss but we have learned that Lynn McClellan’s beloved Mr. Boots died on Monday. May she find some solace in this time of grief.
