I didn't like the idea of wearing urn type jewelry carrying some of her ashes, it just didn't' appeal to me. And I couldn't afford the $3500 diamond I wanted made from her ashes from Life Gem. I really hate rich people ( like Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and any other spoiled brats born into money and are just a nuisance to society) who don't have to think about money and can decide to do things based on the fact they want it and not can they afford it- it's not fair! So the Memory Glass pendent was a great alternative for me.
There she is in the little flowery tin canister on the mantle with sympathy cards and 2 or her collars around a vase that has petals from flowers we received. The orange collar with the writing from what looks like white out was her track and kennel collar. And the black flowery collar was her fancy outing collar. I don't have her "everyday" collar as it was cremated along with her. Oh and BTW Dogwood never called me back - I had wanted to talk to the tech and vet that were there that day personally and the office lady said she would have them call me. Well from talking to the crematory place and thinking back on the events I finally came to my own conclusion that she was indeed cremated with the collar.
Like I said in an earlier post I had gotten a call from Altoona Animal Hospital checking up on Spooky last week and I had to tell them she had passed on. Well I got a card the other day from them with a hand written message that they had made a donation in Spooky's name to the local animal shelter - like we had been a life long client of theirs and we had only had the one appointment. I found it incredibly nice of them and very unexpected!
