When a woman who had been kind to stray animals passed away, family and friends weren’t the only ones who went to the funeral to pay their respect. In what might be the most heartbreaking thing ever, a bunch of four legged beautiful friends crashed the funeral to pay their final respects to the woman with the heart of gold.
ANGEL ON EARTH
Margarita Suarez of Merida, Yucatan was a Godsend, especially with stray animals. She used to go out every morning and feed stray dogs and cats that showed up at her home. Just like you an I, she had a special place in her heart for all these lost and forgotten animals.
Clearly, she had a heart like so many people rarely do these days, and the animals she befriended loved her to pieces. She would even carry a bag of food along to feed any stray she encountered along the way. Get ready to share some tears after you learn what happened next.
FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND
Sadly, Margarita passed away from an illness, which left her family members devastated. Then, something unusual happened that left everyone at the funeral home with their mouths wide open.
WE MISS HER TOO
Family and friends were stunned when stray dogs suddenly appeared at the funeral home. The dogs had clearly showed up to honor the woman that had taken care of them without asking for anything in return.
OUR FINAL RESPECTS
Once staff members at the funeral parlor realized that the dogs had come to pay their respects to Margarita, they allowed them to stay near the woman’s coffin. If you’re tearing up inside, we don’t blame you. This story is as beautiful as they come!
THEY SEEMED HUMAN ENOUGH
Some claim that animals have no emotions, (but they won’t for long!) and yet, these animals had come to mourn for Margarita, proving these creatures are far more complex than you imagined. If we didn’t know any better, we’d almost say they were going through the early stages of grief.
TIME TO LET GO
The dogs even formed a procession behind the hearse on the day of the funeral. But just like with her human family, the dogs were unwilling to leave Margarita’s body until she was being prepared for cremation.
JUMPING FOR JOY
Even in pain, Margarita’s daughter, Patricia Urrutia claims that the dogs jumped for joy, and watching them was a wonderful experience, not to mention, a fitting tribute to their mother.
THE LONG GOODBYE
Patricia believes that the presence of these animals at the funeral home was no coincidence, and that they wanted to say goodbye to Margarita, who had been so good to them when she was alive.
STRAYS, BUT FULL OF LOVE
Dogs are a lot smarter than many of us give them credit for, and if a bunch of four legged animals are capable of demonstrating love, loyalty, and kindness, maybe we can too. Grabs the Kleenex box
