Life Cycle Pet Cremation recently organized a Floating Lantern Pet Memorial ceremony. The ceremony gave pet owners a healing way to remember their special companions. Each pet owner decorated a lantern with personal memories of their pet, and then set their lantern out to float in the lake.

Taking place at dusk, the site of all the lanterns together was a moving reminder of the bonds between our beloved companions and ourselves.
