"...Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were
beside you... I loved you so - 'twas Heaven here with you."

The Story Behind the Pet Memorial Candle
When the Artist's 13 year-old cat passed away, she wanted to do something special "in memory" of her departed companion, something that would also help her cope with the flood of emotions that she was experiencing.
Searching shop to shop she found nothing that was appropriate to aid in her personal expression of love and sorrow. There didn't seem to be an affordable tribute designed specifically for animal friends. Other devoted pet lovers she spoke to felt the same void.
Out of her grief, this beautiful candle was created -- a classic, wax-filled glass tumbler with a silk-screen design, depicting ethereal dogs and cats circling a wonderfully comforting poem. The Furry Angel Candle is 5" high x 2 5/8" in diameter and will burn for approximately 3 days. Included is a Gift Card containing a Special Blessing, thoughts for a Candle-lighting Ceremony, and a place to record the pet's name.
The Furry Angel Candle makes a thoughtful gift for anyone who has lost a treasured animal companion. It can also be used to commemorate the anniversary of a pet's passing. After the candle has burned, the silk-screened glass makes a lovely permanent flower vase.
