Your beloved pets are a part of the family, and the grief that follows their deaths can be surprisingly intense. Is it possible to view your love for them and management of their exits as a path to transforming our own relationship to death. As dogs, cats, parakeets, gerbils, lizards, and goldfish have shorter lives, caring for them in both youth and old age can teach us a lot about separation, as well how to find meaning in life. Join The Green-Wood Cemetery for a conversation on pet end-of-life planning, pet hospice vs. euthanasia, the power of pet funerals and monuments, and digital life stories and memory books with pet loss expert Lucy Morganstern and human funeral director Amy Cunningham. The talk will be kid friendly with room for family stories. This program is presented in partnership with Park Slope Parents. Meet in the modern chapel.
