Losing someone dear to us, whether human or animal, is one of the most heartbreaking experiences that we could ever go through in this life.
Sometimes, we can’t even imagine getting over the pain of feeling that void in our hearts, one that can’t be replaced by anything or anyone.
To help keep our loved ones’ memories alive, many of us hold on to their possessions – a pillow, a piece of clothing, or jewelry – anything that will help remind us of their presence.
Whenever we see or hold these things, we are momentarily transported back to the time when they were still with us, and for someone who is grieving, that fleeting experience could mean the world to them.
That is exactly what a company called Davenport Memorial Glass specializes in. This business creates memorial pieces in the form of stunning glassworks that are infused with a small amount of a departed loved ones’ ashes.
The pet paws are particularly the popular request from most of their clients. The glass paws are small enough for you to carry around, so you can have a piece of your cat or dog with you wherever you go.
“Our goal is to physically capture a moment, to create a keepsake that brings back a memory. Nothing will compare to the time spent with your loved one, but we hope to aid in treasuring them and remembering the precious time you had together. Thank you for all the trust you have put into what we do. We greatly appreciate you,” Davenport writes on their website.
While there is the option of burying our furry friends in pet cemeteries, not everyone has nearby access to such places. That’s why Davenport is here to offer you a beautiful alternative to formal burials.
All you need to do is gather a small spoonful of ashes and mail them to the company.
