David Fisher, middle child, closet homosexual, sensitive and angry, struggles for acceptance and understanding in a world dictated by social norms. David’s continual search for answers with his conflicting lifestyles (homosexual in one world and seemingly straight with his family, funeral home clients and church in another), give way to guilt, shame and confusion, combined with a sensitivity and compassion for others make David the Id, Ego and Super Ego of the show.
The funeral and memorial service is another point where the cost can go high. It is very expensive to hold a service to honor the deceased. This price does not have to be there if instead of having this done at the funeral home a simple get together at home is done, all the luxury service offered by the funeral home is not that necessary.
Some people may find comfort in reading books about the loss of a pet or books that help people with the grieving process. Forever Pets carries several books on the subject.

When it takes long to make the decision on whether the body is to be cremated the more you stand to spend. This cost gets more and more every day you wait. If it is not to be cremated immediately there are a lot of things that need to be done.
Hazel died January 8, 2013. All that knew her were saddened by her passing, but were so grateful to have met such an amazing and inspiring woman. Leppert Mortuary and Funeral home at 740 East 86th Street in Nora, is pet friendly and allows pets to be included in the funeral service if the family wishes. They also have arrangements for Dog cremation Pittsburgh and burial. Hazel’s family were happy to agree to let Jelly Bean III come to Leppert Funeral home to say goodbye to his owner. The family said he could actually stay for the funeral and wanted him to be at the burial. They felt that Jelly Bean III was like her child because she had no children with her husband, Norm.
I then called Rick Andrews of Andrews Mortuary, the parent company of Atlantic Cremation. Since he is technically Mr. Martin’s boss, I thought I would be appealing to a professional. I told Mr. Andrews what Mr. Martin said. Mr. Andrews then called me a liar – “Mr. Martin would never treat you that way!” Over the course of the conversation, Mr. Andrews affirmed everything that Mr. Martin had said, and then accused me of being “most unreasonable”. I told him that I would be reporting his companies to the Attorney General and to whomever regulates funeral homes in North Carolina, and he arrogantly urged me to do so. At that point, I gave up.
Some of these pet urns are created as memory boxes and have space enough for pictures on the outside of the urn and room for your pet’s favorite items such as leashes, toys and other trinkets that you don’t feel that you can get rid of. Another option you have for a cremation urn is a traditional pet urn that looks like an ornate vase with a lid. No matter which you choose, make sure it is right for you. This is what you are going to see every time you remember your pet.
