Thank you all!

I've gotten many messages from many people, and calls from all over the world. Andrea and I want to thank you all for your caring. Some people have asked where to send flowers.

In one of those macabre coincidences that life seems to be full of, Betsy and I somehow got on the subject of endings out at our seasonal campsite two weekends ago. So I know what she wanted done...of course, the discussion mostly centered around me-- we both felt that I would go first.

She didn't want a wake, viewing or funeral. We're going to have a celebration of her life in a week or so, and then we're going to take her home to California where we'll scatter her ashes as she wanted.

Betsy was a fervent supporter of corgi rescue, and now we have three very confused and upset Corgis, including Toby, the fear biter she retrained after we decided to keep him a couple of years ago. My daughter and I have decided that in lieu of flowers, we would request that donations be made to your favorite corgi rescue charity.

Here are some we've supported over the years...but if you have a favorite, please donate to that one in Betsy's name.

Lakeshore PWC Rescue http://www.lakeshorecorgirescue.com/index.html
CorgiAid http://www.corgiaid.org
Cascade Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club http://www.angelfire.com/wa2/cpwcc/Rescue.htm
Cardigan Welsh Corgi Rescue Trust http://www.cardiganrescue.org/

If you wish, donate to any other corgi rescue charity of your choice...

If you want some company whils't out here, just give a shout.

We're going to bring her out in October so we have time to schedule something. We will have a small memorial that our friends like you can attend, and then we will take her and her dad's ashes to the ocean and scatter them together so she will never be alone. She was very close to her dad and she would have been honored to know what her mother has offered.

We'll let you know what day and time.

Thanks,

Walt and Andrea

That's wonderful, Walt. We'll be there.

Walt, my deepest sympathies. I really regret I never had the chance to meet her in person, and appreciate what she did for me.
