Gentle Gracie “June Bug”
By Charmaine Turney;
Gracie loves the many visits she goes and it is so rewarding to see the smiles she puts on everyone faces and she always seems to know when someone needs a little extra attention.
On one of our visits we came across a small group of people standing outside a room, after learning they had just lost a family member I started to walk away because I did not think they would be interested in having us around. That’s when Gracie gently nudged the hand of the man who had just lost his sister and through all his grieving he seemed to find solace from just petting my Golden. He began telling us about his sister, her life and when it was time to leave he managed a smile and thanked us for coming by to visit.
As we walked away it was all I could do to hold back the tears but this is what is all about.
