We have a very touching day of sanctuary to start this Jamieween day sponsored by Anne Roberson, Cheryl Baldwin and Debbie Watt in honor of one of our wonderful volunteer caregivers, Patti Sims, and in memory of Patti’s mother, Doris Sims. They shared this touching message about their lovely gift:
“We are making this donation to honor Patti Sims in memory of her mother, Doris Sims, who died on October 13th. We selected October 31st because it is Jamie’s 40th birthday and we thought that would mean a lot to Patti. She loves Jamie and all of the chimps so much.”
Anne, Cheryl and Debbie, what a lovely thing to do for Patti and the chimps. Thank you so much for honoring Doris in such a thoughtful and compassionate way.
Patti, we are all holding you in our hearts and thoughts and we’re so glad to be able to honor your mom with you today. You do so much to make a lasting difference in the lives of our fellow animals in the world and we hope this Jamieween brings lightness, comfort and some happy to your big, compassionate heart. Thanks for being part of our chimp family.
Patti, Lynn and the birthday lady, Jamie:
