Unconditional Love – Even in Death

Hawkeye Mourns Too

The true love of our pets
It was a tragedy heard round the world, the loss of numerous Navy SEALs in combat. A loss that breaks anyone´s heart; tugging at my heart even more with a son-in-law SEAL.
But, what began to tug even more so at hearts was a photo taken at U.S. Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson´s funeral in Rockford, Iowa. A photo showing unconditional love at its finest – Jon´s buddy, Hawkeye, his loyal friend, not leaving his master´s side, even when his master lie in a casket.
Huge kudos to the Hauser Funeral Home staff for supporting this act of love. An act that, as described to me by Mr. Allan Whiteside, funeral director and manager of the Hauser Funeral Home, made all of the sense in the world. For, as Mr. Whiteside said “Hawkeye was a huge part of Jon´s life. Therefore, it only made sense that he was a part of this too. It´s what Jon would´ve wanted. It´s what all of his friends wanted, and needed.”
While the Navy SEAL´s team was mostly in charge of the arrangements for Jon´s service, the Hauser team was there to support their every need. Therefore, when it was mentioned that Hawkeye should be there, Mr. Whiteside said “we were all for this, too. Having Hawkeye there was an incredibly appropriate thing to do.”
So, again, kudos to the Hauser team for supporting this act of love!
As you think about your final arrangements, don´t forget those furry friends that you have at home. Make sure you tell your family, your friends, and, in particular, your funeral director in your pre-planning arrangements that you want your precious pets to be a part of your service.
For although all our deaths that were broadcast nationally, we are heroes to some. And, that someone possibly might have four legs.
