The Annual Windcrest Memorial Tree

memorial tree

In the month of December, our Memorial Tree will stand tall and proud in the lobby of Windcrest Animal Hospital, to honor all the beloved pets who have passed this year. All clients from our 5 Veterinary Hospitals, who have lost cherished family pets during the year, will receive an ornament. Clients decorate the ornament in honor of their beloved pets and these become the decorations for our Tree throughout the Holiday Season. Also, they receive an invitation to our Candlelight Eulogy and Tree-Lighting Ceremony held in December.

Every year since its inception in 2005, the Candlelight Eulogy and Tree-Lighting Ceremony has been a deeply moving experience shared by all who attend. Everyone involved gather around the precious Memorial Tree, with the ornaments, decorated by the family members, honoring the pets that they have lost. Over 100 people attend this event every year. Poems are read, memories are shared, and individual candles held by each attendee are lit, honoring the name of their beloved pet. As the flame, passes from person to person, the love and strength shared by everyone involved grows just as strong and bright as the glow of the candles.
