In Loving Memory of Rusty

We are sad to say we lost our beloved Rusty last week.  He had developed complications due to cancer and his life would not have been good.  He did well for about 2 years. Thanks to wonderful veterinarians guiding us.  He celebrated his 13th birthday on January 20 the same date as Peters.  He kept his loving and zestful spirit and realized we were trying to help him.

In Memory Of Tobias (Bose)

A generous donation was made in memory of Tobias.   

"We tell ourselves that losing is part of loving, and even when the loss is as final as death it just makes the life full of love you shared all the more worthwhile. More than any human, Tobias - you taught me how to give and receive love. Even in death you taught me a few lessons about grace and fortitude when the time comes to let go. I lived in fear of having to play god and decide to mercifully end your life. You loved me so much that you even spared me that in your last act by dying a natural death in my arms. It is that mutual love that brings my heart to bursting point as I grieve. I love you Tobias, and always will."
