THANK YOU TO Marla’s co-workers from the Las Vegas DIstrict Na’Hoku Stores!:

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generous cash donation to help Marla. Mathew and I have used a portion of the money to pay for several months of a storage facility for Marla’s things, and to rent a UHAUL truck to move her items from her home to the storage facility.  This generous donation, in these serious economic times, was such a blessing. We didn’t expect it and are so grateful to you all. Thank you, also, for visiting Marla during the week. Having 1 person a day visiting her and letting her know you care means so much to her.

THANK YOU to our friend Sherilyn for putting us in touch with Lin and Saypin, Jack’s foster-parents for 2 weeks!

Sherilyn was kind enough to ask around work and find a friend who LOVED animals and who was willing to take my grandma’s dog JACK as an emergency foster-dog for two weeks while we looked around for a more permanent foster situation for Jack. I don’t know what we would’ve done without this kindness. Thank you so so much.

THANK YOU to my cousin/best friend forever Monique for agreeing to foster Jack for a few weeks while we look around for a permanent home for Jack! –make that ADOPT Jack! I knew your husband would talk you into it!!! Jack has found a home!!!!

Monique already has quite a few dogs and cats, but her willingness to help out and say “yes, no problem!” before I even finished asking the question was such a relief and a weight off our shoulders!
