Thank you for the interesting discourse and for all the forum comments. I know the focus on this subject is on humans passing over, however, I have a question on the loss of my dog three years ago. I still sense him in my room and on my bed from time to time. I keep thinking that due to my strong attachment to him I am preventing him from moving on. This is upsetting me to a degree, as I also feel he just wants to come home. I have started praying that he will be released into love wherever that may be. Should I just continue to do this ?
