Black Pearls of Wisdom...

I am home...

The Mom picked up my ashes today. She and the Dad had a good cry.

The people at St.Francis Pet Funeral Services & Crematory are very special people. They sent the Mom and the Dad a lovely, heartfelt sympathy card through the mail. And today, with my ashes, they included a sweet little St. Francis medal and prayer card.

Alex from Alex in Welderland's Custom Pet Urns is going to put me up onto WINston's couch urn. But, even though the container from St. Francis is just a temporary stop for me, it's a beautiful tin--white with gold trim, a bouquet of flowers on the lid and this printed on the side:

"Herewith are deposited the remains of one
who possessed beauty without vanity,
strength without insolence,
courage without ferocity, and
all the virtues of human beings,
without their vices.
This praise which would be unmeaning
flattery if inscribed over human ashes,
is but a just tribute,
which makes one grateful to now
have the privilege,
of the happy memories left behind,
by this pet."

just as lovely as Dixie...
