Got Riley's ashes back today. Wrapped his collar around the urn. Shasta sniffed and sniffed and then stomped out of the room like an angry child. I think it's finally clicked for her that he isn't coming back. Still trying to figure out how to explain cremation to a 3 year old and a 5 year old.... Somehow I dont think "They burned him until there's nothing but ash" is the way to go. I think i'll wait a few years before I explain that one. The crematorium also sent a copy of The Rainbow Bridge as well as some wildflower seeds to plant in Riley's memory. I thought that was really nice of them.
