No wise man who ever lived could truly comfort the heart that has lost what it held most dear. Most people have experienced the loss of a loved one. So they try, each in their own way, to make you feel that they understand how sad you are.
The world understands less the pain of losing an animal. This is because many people have never felt for themselves the true love of an animal. So, you can not really expect these people to realize that your love for a pet may be greater than your love for the dearest people in your life. The bond is different, and can never be put into words. It is a bond that only The Heart understands.
