With years of experience in supporting people as their pets reach the end of their life I have gained a tremendous amount of wisdom and knowledge concerning the soul of our beloved companions.

Our animals are incredibly generous and have a unique view of the world and us. They come into our lives for many reasons—each one personal. They have a profound effect on the way we as humans approach life.

Along with my personal experience, plus being a professional animal communicator for over 20 years, a certified end-of-life and pet loss grief coach (CEOL), licensed massage therapist for humans, horses, and hounds, and a wolf biologist I have helped countless people around the world to feel safe with their feelings of grief and have a compassionate outlet to express what they are feeling.

People who feel alone with their feelings of grief have found support with these poems. Many have shared with me when they read this book it helped them feel sustained throughout their daily routine.

Isabel who had a personalized poem written for her and is included in this book shared:


Thank you for my beautiful poem about Dandy and including it in this book. I love my poem and reading what others are experiencing. This book is something I really needed as I was going through such a difficult time. When I read a particular poem on a daily basis I find that I can focus my thoughts through the love that is shared. It helps me not to feel alone in this journey. This is such a difficult subject, but the poems are compassionate, honest, and good for the heart and soul. One of the toughest things about saying good-bye to Dandy was knowing I would never hold him in my arms again. These poems helped me understand there are other ways to feel his love and companionship. Thank you for opening up my heart and mind to feel the creative part of my emotional grieving.
