Tex IMed me to inform me that I received a card at his address from an organization in Seattle, called Christian Veterinary Mission. The outside of the envelope indicated that someone had made a donation to the organization in my name. I don’t remember making such a donation, particularly not with Tex’s address attached to it, so I asked him to open it. He did, and transcribed it for me in the IM window so that I would be able to see what it said.
A memorial contribution to Christian Veterinary Mission has been made by Collierville Animal Clinic in affectionate memory of Chewbacca. We wish to extend our sincere sympathy to you for your loss. However, please know that this memorial gift allows veterinarians to help people in need all around the world. We hope that you will take comfort in knowing that God cares for all of creation.
Dr. Kitt Flowers
Executive Director, CVM
For as long as I live within a 30-mile radius of that office, I will take any and all pets I have there. I have never in my life experienced a veterinary office like this, nor a vet like the one who took care of Chewbacca and currently takes care of Lucy. I’m humbled by this card.
Excuse me, I have something in my eye…
