Wall of Remembrance
A Living Memorial
TEARS Animal Rescue has set out on a journey to build a living memorial wall with a plaque, to honour the lives of companion animals. We hope we will be joined by all those who have known the particular love of a pet and the grief that their passing leaves.
It is with deep pleasure and humility that we launch the TEARS Wall of Remembrance at our headquarters, Rock Aloe Farm in Sunnydale in the southern Cape Peninsula.
The TEARS Wall of Remembrance has been designed to display beautifully crafted Perspex plaques that commemorate the precious souls who have passed through our lives, while the wall itself stands as a band of protection around the shelter dogs and cats in our care who still long for a home of their own and a person who will one day remember them.
A Space of Tranquillity
The wall is constructed around our green area; a large grassed space of tranquillity where our dogs and puppies go to play and relax outside of their kennels. It also forms a new and strengthened boundary wall to safely shelter our rescue dogs.
All who buy a plaque, whether on our wall or website, will be invited to the unveiling and consecration ceremony of the TEARS Wall of Remembrance on Sunday 20 November 2016 at 15h00.
The TEARS Wall of Remembrance will stand through time as a living memorial to this lovely sentiment:
“I’ll meet you at the rainbow bridge, but until then do not grieve, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you. I loved you so.”
