Finding a way to cope with the loss of a beloved family pet is never easy.
We consider them members of our family.
But when a pet dies, there's usually not a memorial service for them, like if your uncle or aunt died.
Sunday night at the Allen County Humane Society, people got a chance to remember Fluffy and Fido and what their all too short lives meant to us.
A memorial service was held to provide a sort of closure for those still clinging to the memory of a deceased pet.
Those gathered lit candles and spoke the name of a recently departed pet in their lives.
