I want to briefly write about our wonderful pets including horses, dogs, cats, and many other animals that become pets. And yes, even some rodents fall into this category of how much they can help us.
Through all the years of human existence, traditions have always been to bury, burn and/or somehow leave the body remains to become part of the earth. There ensued some sort of burial and ceremony of basically sending a person soul off to heaven or with the ancestors somehow. These ceremonies were closure for the remaining family and friends.
