I want to tell you of a life that I adore. I refer to Holly as the Sister you never knew you needed until she showed up. I remember adopting Holly from the rescue shelter and from day one she was a new spirit, fun loving, crazy, childlike and kind. She was the first to greet you with a ‘hello’. She would take plants by the roots and pull them out of the ground then happily present it to you. Holly’s proudest achievements were bringing you sticks, rocks, branches, bushes, and critters so you too could rejoice in her accomplishments (good or not so good). Holly was the first to walk with you into the vineyard and stay by your side. She kept watch over our daughters as they played around the hill and never left their side. After seven wonderful years Holly’s leg was amputated due to a tumor. Unfortunately, that was not enough to save her life. Now we are experiencing the painful lesson of life and loss. Holly is now pain free and running in our hearts and minds. Thank you, Holly, for sharing your childlike joy with us. You will be remembered.
