That’s why we wanted to create something to help people through the grief and to remember the joy. So we made a memory garden for our pets. At the center of the garden is a rock river that symbolizes life. Along the river banks are Day Lily’s representing happiness, surrounded by other plants that have symbolic meaning of grace, beauty, and joy.
Anyone who has lost a pet is welcome to place a rock, ashes, or any other remembrance that holds a special place in their hearts. There it will remain as a special memory of a beloved pet.
Several years ago we had a veterinary nurse, Joel, who was taken from us far too early. Joel was one of the kindest and most loving people we have ever had the privilege to have as part of our family. So it was natural to name our garden after him, a special person we will always remember.
Thank you for allowing us to be part of your life, to care for your pet, and to help hold on to the memories. And thank you Joel, for the love and inspiration.
