God saw that you were getting tired,
And your cure was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with me."
A Golden heart stopped beating,
Adoring eyes went to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
- Carol Aberst

We are very sorry to announce Monica has crossed the rainbow bridge. This sweet senior came to G.R.I.N. in horrible shape but with medical care, good food and lots of TLC she rebounded for a time. Although she succumbed to her medical issues in the end her time with G.R.I.N. was no doubt the best of her life.
