This Program was created due to the increased recognition, acceptance, and importance of the Human Pet bond. It is unique and unlike anything I have seen in my 50 years in Funeral Service. It shows a level of compassion and understanding that is appreciated because you have taken their loss seriously and acknowledged how important their pet was to them. I strongly believe it should be a part of every family pet service. --F. James Wylie, Funeral Director, CFSP, Former FFDA Executive Director

A pet can quickly become part of a family. You Will Always Be a Part of Me is a grief guide for those who have lost their close animal companions and are trying to overcome their loss, and moving on. Often a grief only other pet owners can understand, Timothy O Brien advises relaxation techniques as well as sleep for coping and healing. A strong pick for anyone expecting such a loss or coping with such a lost themselves, You Will Always Be a Part of Me is an excellent pick, much recommended. --The Midwest Book Review

This book was a true gift. I thought that I had already worked through my grief. By reading it, I knew it was ok to grieve. It let me release old stuff I did not realize I was holding on to. The Stress Management Techniques in this book are awesome. Knowing there are specific tools you can use with choices to fit your life at this moment, makes getting through each day easier. Thanks so much for writing it. --Laura Phipps, St. Francis Wildlife Association, President B.O.D.
