My condolences to you and your family. I'm sure Angel is in a better place where she can now run and play with all the others that have gone over the bridge.
There is nothing crazy about cremating your pet. I have always cremated my pets and brought them home where they should always be. where they had the most love and gave the most love.
I'm glad Angel had her whole family to the end and make sure she left with your heart felt love..:rip: Angel

I am so sorry :cry: :grouphug:. Angel was very lucky to have you as his mom :angel:

You are not crazy, you are somebody who opened your heart to unconditional love from an animal. :grouphug:

I understand completely how you feel.

She was a beautiful girl. You can tell she was well loved. My thoughts are with you and your family :grouphug:

There is nothing wrong with cremating your animals. All of mine are cremated and at home where they belong.

This is a great site as everyone understands what your are going through.

Great pictures of your Angel.

:rip: Angel

What beautiful pics, and wonderful memories.
My deepest condolences to you and your family. The pain of losing one that you love so much seems unbearable at first. With time, the pain is slowly replaced by memories and warm thoughts.
