24 First And Last Pictures Of These Adorable Pets Will Leave You In Tears

Losing a pet is just like losing any other loved one in our lives. The fact that they might have a few more legs and a bit more body hair doesn't mean they aren't just as important or just as much a part of our heart as the rest of our family.

Unfortunately, their shorter lifespans make every bond a bittersweet one when it's time to say goodbye. Everyone mourns in their own way, but looking back on the time together is often the best first step to healing.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
