Jeff and I picked up Lucies ashes this afternoon. The box is much nicer than I thought it would be and now we are not sure we want to bury it. It put it on top of the fireplace mantle, it is a very hard white plastic with a gold plack that says "My BeLoved Pet" in nice scrip along with a certificate of guarantee that my piet has been cremated privately by the Only Cremations company. There was a very nice poem on the back of the certificate and I only got about half way through it and I started to cry. I had my husband finish reading it for me. I can not believe it has only been one week. Anyway here is the poem:
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of
quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Please stand not at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
We send our condolences for the loss of your beloved companion.
I still get teary everytime I read this because Lucy truely was my beloved companion.
