Pet Funeral Director on "Talking Animals"
My guest on "Talking Animals" Sept. 4 will be Nikki McQueen, vice-president of Anderson-McQueen Funeral Homes And Cremation Tribute Center, based in St. Petersburg, FL.
Her work for Anderson-McQueen encompasses serving as a pet funeral director. In that capacity, McQueen will be a featured speaker on a forum Sept. 7 at Stetson College of Law Center in Gulfport, FL.
The forum is pegged to National Pet Memorial Day, Sept. 9, and second in a series on end-of-life issues from the Emerson Forum.
In her presentation, McQueen will describe the common grief shared by pet owners and families in dealing with the death of loved ones—both human and animal.
Another speaker will be veterinarian Dr. Dani McVety, the founder of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospital—and a guest on "Talking Animals" in January of 2012—who will deliver a talk entitled “What We Can Learn About Life From The Death Of A Pet.”
Nikki McQueen will speak with us live, in studio, on "Talking Animals" on Sept. 4 at 9am ET, and listeners are invited to participate in the conversation by calling 813-239-9663 or e-mailing DJ@wmnf.org.
