Naming Tribute for Isaac

Isaac


Our precious Isaac lost his battle with lymphoma only a short eleven months after we adopted him. Isaac was just ten days short of his 4thbirthday. Each month of our time together, Isaac’s loving personality unfolded and blossomed into an amazing being that changed our lives. Not without some ‘teenager’ moments, Isaac made Andy and I better parents regarding patience and allowing. The allowing of Isaac to be Isaac was a gift to our entire family. Our daily family hikes in the foothills, with his brother Jack (adopted from GRFR only three weeks after we adopted Isaac), were the most fun times of each day. Our days also consisted of two ball throwing games. Some may say ‘spoiled’ . . . we liked to say ‘deeply loved’. The “giving” to these wonderful animals that are seeking a new life thru the rescue system is an honor. I always felt inspired to make up for lost time Isaac may have experienced early on in life. I now know why. Each day must be lived to the full, because we never know how many days that may total. Taking the time each and every day for hugs and kisses and ‘I love you’s’ should be like breathing; easy and beautiful! Thank you, Isaac!!! A very special ‘thank you’ to Mary for calling us first to meet Isaac. The minute Andy and I looked into Isaac’s eyes, we became a ‘family’! Also, a very special thank you to each and every person involved with GRRR. It truly does take a village to raise a child and a ‘Golden.’ With love, Andy, Julie, and Jack Feld
