This is an invitation to anyone who is mourning the death of a beloved animal. Life In Motion Counseling's Pet Loss Grief Support Services will be forming a support group in March, here in Durham. A pet's death can be deeply painful, even devastating. Our relationships with our animal companions are among the purest, most unburdened relationships most of us will ever experience. The grief that attends this loss is a also a disenfranchised one: it is not given full validity or much recognized by our culture.
