Nicki Walters sponsored today for the chimpanzees in memory her late beloved husband, Bill, and his beautiful legacy. She shared this touching message about today:
“This is my anniversary present to the late but incredibly great Bill Walters. Of whom will always be memorialized as Twister. I was so very touched by a recent post of Foxie finally making it to the top. I could literally hear him cheering her on as I read. He was the ultimate supporter of the underdog, or in this case, underape, or in my case underhuman. My life will forever be better for having him in it and it fills my heart knowing the chimps lives are better as well by way of his Twister.”
Nicki, in life and after, both you and Bill bring so much to the chimpanzees and their home. Your love for them and commitment to enriching their lives make a lasting difference on a daily basis. We’re so touched that you were moved by Foxie’s recent brave adventure – it was a heart-singing moment to witness. And one made possible for her, and all the chimps, because of Bill’s life. From our hearts to yours, thank you, to you and your family and friends. We hope today finds you surrounded in the love, inspiration, comfort and adventure that you’ve helped weave through the chimps’ lives.
Revisiting Foxie’s recent adventurous moment atop the Twister. It took her two years of attempts before she felt comfortable working her way up to the top, but every curious, cautious, careful step was one we will always celebrate.
