With love, written by one of the volunteers

"If I were to guess, there will be a zoo waiting in Heaven for you Rich!  All the pets will be waiting to welcome you home, just as you've done for them in your earthly home.  I'm not really religious, but I do believe in God and Heaven, and I love to believe our pets will be there to greet us.  I sincerely do not know how you find the strength and love (not to mention money) to keep doing what you do, but please never give up.  You are amazing and I think that's why we all love you and Karen, and we love coming to your home.  We get to feel like we're part of tremendously good deeds called your life.  We only come and go for short periods of time, but this is really your calling, your life, your sacrifices.  Please remember how much GOOD you do for these guys, even if for just a moment of time in their lives."
