Freddaflower Memorial Fund

The pain of losing them is the price we pay for the privilege of knowing them and sharing their lives. . . . Vicky Barbee

We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following beloved family members and friends:

I make the enclosed donation to your sanctuary building project as a memorial to our indomitable hen, Bertha. Bertha wandered into our lives ten years ago, living outside for 4 of those years, until a hawk attacked her. After our vet saved her, we built a large pen for Bertha in our woods that included a shed that could be heated. She lived 5 more years in safety, the queen of all she surveyed. I spent 2 hours every day with her in all seasons. She died suddenly last August 25. During the first storm after she died, her entire pen collapsed, as though signaling the end of an era. She was as close a friend as I've had. - Paul Deane

Please accept my donation to support your work in memory of my mother, Barbara C. Kearney. - Lynne K. Stevens
