A friend recommended me to look up some help online and that's when I came across this book. All the other options were more about the afterlife aspect of death which wasn't a concern for me as an atheist, I wanted to find something about the grieving process to try to understand what was I going through.
The Pet Loss Companion not only has the professional aspect of grieving but also the sentimental part of it because you can literally feel how much both authors and the cases they used loved their own pets. What they went through is exactly how I'm feeling.
It has an incredibly positive message, it explains that how we feel equals the love we felt and the authors give a fantastic advice: "(...) we hope you allow yourself to imagine a moment sometime in the future. In that moment some time from now, you'll know that to have loved so fully means you have received one of the most special gifts that life grants us".
Right now, after having finished the book I feel as if I understand myself a lot more, I understand what I'm going through and this allows me to take care of myself and to give me time to heal and for that, I'll forever be grateful to Ken and Nancy.
And like I told Ken, I hope to find it in spanish someday so I can give it to my family and friends!
