Dan and I continue to be so amazed and humbled by all of the wonderful gifts and sentiments from those whose lives were touched by Harley. It was no exception when a package arrived that instantly brought tears (but smiles!). It contained the most beautiful handmade quilt with a wonderful likeness of our boy, along with an equally gorgeous appliqued tote and matching cosmetic bag. These breathtaking gifts were accompanied by this letter:
Dear Dan and Rudi,
Since Harley’s death, we have been thinking about a way to memorialize him. We decided to use our sewing and quilt making talent to honor his memory. We are sisters who live more than halfway across the country from each other, and who both fell in love with Harley on Facebook. His ‘goodnight posts’ became a part of our daily routine and we enjoyed watching his journey. He opened our eyes to the evils of puppy mills. We will spread the word to all we meet.
Please accept these gifts with our love in remembrance of Harley. Our cousin, Donna, volunteered to do the quilting on the project to ‘pay it forward’ in honor of her beloved companion, Harrison, and all rescue dogs.
Joyce and Sandra
