We have a double day of sanctuary! Nicki Walters sponsored today in memory of her beloved husband, Bill Walters (aka Twister), on his birthday. Bill and Nicki and their family and friends have been incredible friends to the chimpanzees over the years and we’re touched to have the chimpanzees included in celebrating the special person Bill was. Learn more about Bill and his legacy of love here.
Nicki shared this beautiful message:
“Happy Birthday to Bill Walters, who we lost far too soon but his spirit will live on in many ways, one of the biggest being through the Twister. Seeing the Chimps climbing and playing on this structure fills the hole he left in my soul. He loved them in life and now his memory adds to their lives. I am so thankful to everyone at the sanctuary for the wonderful life they give these wonderful beings and the beautiful way in which they share them with us every day through their blog. It has provided me many much needed smiles over the years.”
Nicki, we’re so grateful to you, Bill, and your loved ones for the incredible joy, adventure and opportunities for courage that you have provided the chimpanzees over the years. We are all holding you in our thoughts and hearts.
