    Lee Balliett
    passed this month. He and his wife Eileen (deceased)  became dear friends of Joyce and Kim. They were both a wealth of knowledge, and they were huge supporters of the rescue. Although Hayden is surely mourning the loss of his daddy because they were inseparable, he has gone to live with his human brother in Texas. Rest in Heaven, dear Lee. You are missed, and we look forward to the time we meet again.
