Fernando, Tango, and the Blue Shirt

Fernando looking handsome in his blue shirt

Fernando donated his blue shirt to the last Harley’s Dream auction. He was happy to do so and this is what he wrote on September 8, 2017 – “I wanted to donate something special to the auction and I gave it a lot of thought… I have this blue shirt that I like a lot, it’s really soft and mom says I look handsome in it. I decided I should share it with someone else. I hope it raises a lot of money!” Love, Fernando

The shirt was won in the auction by Nancy Darden and just a couple days ago she shared pictures of Tango wearing Fernando’s shirt. This made us smile and we think it will make you smile too.

I know you, Rudi and Dan, are still grieving over the loss of Fernando, but I wanted to send you a few pictures I took tonight of one of my beloved ‘kids’ … Tango. He is proudly wearing Fernando’s favorite blue shirt that we would have paid all of the money in the world if that’s what it took to win it in the last Harley’s Dream auction. Both of my little boys fight over who gets to wear it, but tonight Tango won out!” – Nancy Dresden
