    My interest in dealing with “pet bereavement” led me decades ago to to study it in my discipline, social psychology. I’m interested in identifying new resources to help people to face pet loss (including disappearance as well as loss, death of animals where you volunteer as well as end of life for your own pets). I’m also a committed pet guardian/owner for many years, a real gusher of tears, and am always open to new ways to face death, prepare for grieving, and commemorate animal companions past. Looking forward to it!

    We lost our pet 3 years ago after 14 years. There is not a day that goes by where our family doesn’t think about what is missing in our lives. Losing a pet is losing a dear member.
