Perhaps passing through the gates of death is like passing quietly through the gate in a pasture fence. On the other side, you keep walking, without the need to look back. No shock, no drama, just the lifting of a plank or two in a simple wooden gate in a clearing. Neither pains, nor floods of great light, nor great voices, but just the silent crossing of a meadow.

Pet Burial
We love animals. We have had a number of cats, dogs, sheep, goats and chickens over the years. We presently have two Jack Russell’s and a stray dog that adopted us, so as you can imagine, life is always interesting at our house!! Many of our clients also have animals that have become an integral part of their family, and the death of these pets is heartbreaking. Pets can be buried with families or in a special pet section of the preserve. The choice is yours.
