Many thanks to our long-time friend, Lisa Stuverud, for sharing your special day by sponsoring a day of sanctuary in her sister-in-law, Linda’s, memory:
“I share this day with my dear sister-in-law Linda Vizzare. This has been “our day” for the last 43 years and although she has been gone for the past 8 years, I still enjoy remembering the time we had together learning about who were then the Cle Elum 7 at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. Her first love was Burrito and his happy dance, mine was Jamie and her boots…it will always make me think of her! As the sanctuary has grown and the 7 are now 16, plus 4 bovine, I am full of gratitude to have all this to help keep her memory close in my heart.
‘If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.’ Winnie the Pooh”
Lisa, all of us are sending you all the good thoughts for a day full of joyful and comforting memories as you celebrate your and Linda’s special day.
