I have tried repeatedly to put into words the depth of our gratitude to the hundreds of people who came to Harley’s Celebration of Life. Honestly, there are no adequate words. I was so overwhelmed with emotion when it began that I couldn’t hold back the tears. And for once, the tears came not because I miss him so, but because I was feeling the great love that everyone there had for him.
Thank you for loving Harley so much that you came to honor him and to celebrate his life. And to those who wanted to come but simply couldn’t, I know how much you loved him … we felt your love there with us that night.
Thanks to all of you for your support over the years, for sharing Harley’s mission, and for continuing his legacy. I’ll never understand why I was the one chosen to be Harley’s voice, but I am so thankful that I was. Until the day comes when I finally see him again, I will continue to speak for him and the countless dogs in puppy mills who are still waiting to be free, and those who never had the chance.
I love you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
