Often on Valentine's Day, we give gifts that temporarily please us, like a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine. But this year, why not give your loved one the gift of remembrance?
Valentine's Day is the one day a year we use to formally demonstrate expressions of love to those who mean the most to us. Unfortunately for many, there are few ways for us to express the love we have for those humans and pets no longer with us. Keeping their memory alive brings us comfort and is a way to show our love for them is not forgotten.
This Valentine's Day, Animal Rescue, Inc. will hold a Candlelight Ceremony to memorialize all the animals and humans who significantly touched our hearts for the time they were with us. Candles will be lit throughout our garden, each as a symbol of our love, respect and gratitude for those we've lost, and heartfelt messages and pictures will be posted around the garden to remind us of their kind, generous spirits.
On this special day, we would like to extend the opportunity to you to remember your loved ones as well. Participate in the Candlelight Ceremony by ordering your candles here by February 12, 2012. Please include $5.00 for each person or animal you would like to remember. With your order, you will receive a reply e-mail asking if you would like to include a special message and attach a picture to your message. If it is a gift for someone else, you will receive a printable card to present to your loved one. Remember that you can purchase candles to memorialize your loved ones as well.
For your convenience, we will be videotaping the ceremony and it will be posted on our website and sent in our e-newsletter in late February.
Your Friends at Animal Rescue, Inc.
