Today’s day of sanctuary was generously sponsored by Darrell and Leissa Fode in memory of Bill Blackburn. They shared this message about Bill and their gift for the chimpanzees:
“We have chosen this day in memory of Bill Blackburn’s recent passing. He was the loving father of a dear friend, Natalie Oliphant. Who better to honour him than the adorable chimps at CSNW.”
Darrell and Leissa, thank you so much for thinking of the chimpanzees as you remember Bill and celebrate his life. All of us here at CSNW send our deepest sympathy to Natalie for the loss of her father, and to you both and all who loved him. We wish you all comfort and peace during this difficult time and are so happy to be able to honor Bill’s life here today.
A moment of serenity for Annie:
