"Is it normal to cry so much for a pet?"

"Who can I talk to about this? No one seems to understand!"

Join Diana Sebdza and I as we address these and other questions around pet loss, discuss Pet Loss Support via online resources, issues with euthanasia, pet loss as a disenfranchised grief, how we grieve previous losses once a pet dies (the broken bond), bereavement rituals/memorials and ceremonies for pets. Diana will also share a couple of readings that she gives to her pet grievers.

Diana is the Director of Bereavement for Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice and the Joseph T. Quinlan Bereavement Center. She is a Fellow in Thanatology and a member of the American Academy of Bereavement, and the Association for Death Education & Counseling.
