Annie GH-1106

RIP Sweet Annie – GoldHeart’s Miss January 2020

On Saturday, January 9, 2021, Annie passed away unexpectedly. We’re all very heartbroken, particularly the kids. We don’t know what caused it and it happened very quickly. She had been slowing down a little bit lately and had few GI issues earlier in the week, but nothing overly concerning that would have been a red flag. We chose not to have them do anything invasive after she was gone to find out why. I got to be with her and tell her how much we loved her in her final minutes so she was not alone, which I’m very thankful for.

She was a truly loved addition to our family and our family and neighbors loved her too. We are so thankful for the time we had with her and wish it was longer. In recent months, she loved having everyone at home during the pandemic and often made appearances in my daughter’s Zoom classes. She loved going on car rides and we would bring her every where we could. She was a frequent attendant at our daughter’s soccer games and many soccer parents reached out with sadness after hearing the news.

We will miss her kind, gentle, and sweet spirit. It will be hard for awhile. We want to thank you all for your efforts in making Annie part of our family and all you have done for the organization.  Here are a few favorite pictures.

Annie, you will live on Forever in our Hearts.

Katherine, Eric, Ryan and Lily Kaye
