Urns are always difficult for me. My animals are beloved members of my family, so making urns is really hard for me to do. However, it always really humbles me to know my work can aid someone in their grieving process. Max was the best friend of a boy of three until he was sixteen, so this piece had to be very, very special.

Fired to ^03.

Wow! Captured. My sentiments exactly. I love my buds and it never gets any easier when they leave this cruel world. I lost 3 last year. And Max(10) was one big lovable fellow. He loved to cuddle. His father, Buster(13) passed in May just before I got laid off. Max passed in November and my sweet Precious(11) left our broken hearts in December. Their sibling Booter(11) still do well, as is mama, Jasmine(14ish?) adopted. We have had two guineas and one ferret. I have always had companions growing up as a child. Then I had children, hmmm, that's another story. But I'm safe now, but they (keep coming back). Anyway, enough rant. I just think your work is amazing. And it is so important that we have a way to remember those we love. Stay well. This did make me tear up. My condolences to the boy.
