Grave marker/in loving memory...

Just got the first draft of Spyro’s grave marker sent to me. I love it... thought I would share with those who could appreciate it. I requested the paw prints be removed from the heart in the lower lefthand corner.

Spyro’s life was a miracle in mine in many ways. When we took him into our care in 2018, we thought he might only last a couple of days. Instead, he surprised us with a little over 2.5 years.

Side note, I also lost my grandmother a few months ago due to nursing home neglect, and our first family dog passed away two days after her funeral. Not kidding...Spyro gave me company during the day as a COVID/pandemic-induced work from home employee. Losing him has been extremely painful.

I took him in as a rescue and ironically, he was my first reptile. Experience with many other types of animals made me confident that I could help in some way. He was a hardy, tough little guy, and a he was the third member of the “family” between my boyfriend and me. I fell completely in love with chameleons thanks to him, and he and this forum taught me so much.

I will honor his life by acquiring more knowledge and eventually transition into letting my knowledge and love for this animal flourish in another chameleon. Thank you, Spy.

So very sorry you lost your grandmother and then your dog and now your chameleon. This has been a terrible year and I think it's so awful that people are trapped in seniors homes and dying because they aren't safe there. There isn't much words can do to help but I know you'll keep your grandmother and dog and chameleon in your heart.
Hugs.

BTW...I love the grave marker?

My sister died yesterday and I just found out today. It was sudden and unexpected. There will be no funeral..thank you covid. :(

Omg I am so sorry, that is absolutely devastating. I'm very sorry to hear that there will not be a funeral, I imagine that will be difficult...I am not a praying person but my thoughts and heart is with you - loss is awful on its own but the pandemic turns it into a double-punch.
