Simply Wonderful Friends

It’s so nice to be missed, but it’s even nicer to still have these wonderful people in my life. And for those of you who might be wondering, my “SV pals” are the amazing souls that worked 24/7/I-lost-count-of-how-many-days to help reunite people with their pets that were lost during Hurricane Katrina. And yes – that hurricane happened more than ten years ago and we’re still in touch with one another. The work we did was perhaps the most grueling and gut-wrenching I’ve ever been involved with, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat, as long as they were right there in the trenches with me. I simply can’t imagine my life without my fellow SV’ers.

(PS – “SV” stood for Stealth Volunteers – we didn’t get much publicity, nor were we seeking it, but our name did occasionally come up.)
