Meet sweet Golden Retriever Brynne, named for Brynne Ashley Nicole Kaufmann.

Brynne Ashley Nicole Kaufmann passed away from acute liver and kidney failure surrounded by family and friends on the evening of June 9, 2016. Born on August 22, 1986 in Aurora, Colorado, Brynne was the first child of Brenda Kaufmann Shulman and Leonard Allen Kaufmann.

Brynne Ashley Nicole Kaufmann packed a full life into her short 29 years. Brynne attended the University of Colorado in Boulder where she studied psychology and musical theater. A child of the 1990s, Nickelodeon, Disney, Harry Potter, and all things Joss Whedon, she devoured popular culture and loved to read. She took her camera everywhere and loved to capture beautiful moments both small and large. Though she grew up in Colorado, she traveled the world and especially treasured her trip to Italy in 2010. Brynne loved and was loved throughout her life.
