Special memorial brick

My maternal grandmother died in June of 2015 at age 93. Regular visitors might remember that I was close to her and spent many summers on her farm as a child. Grandma loved animals, especially cats and dogs, and always had pets on the farm.

After she died, I asked my mom what charity I could donate to in her memory. My mom was too distraught to make a suggestion, so I pondered it for a while.

The answer came to me a few weeks later--I purchased a brick for the walkway at Elmbrook Humane Society. They are a no-kill shelter, and where we adopted Ringo from.

The brick is finally installed. It is a comfort to know it is there, and that the funds helped an animal.


The memorial walkway.

What a lovely looking shelter. You should take some photos inside and show it off.

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
