Helen, I am glad you sent this. We knew early this morning because we are
on the Fidelco Friends list. Is this something you would be interested in
joining? If so, let me know and I can have Jody, the list moderator, try to
get you on. It is a great loss to Fidelco but I thought Eliot put it well.
She is now free from pain and reunited with her precious dogs and loved
ones. Needless to say, we will all miss her and her legacy will live on
through our current dogs and those dogs yet to be placed. She was a very
special lady and her passing is a great loss to those who knew and loved
Kay and Beacon
