Mark Moore

This is dedicated in loving memory of our dear friend Mark E. Moore.

Kinky, Tony and I have been deeply saddened by the news of Mark Moore's passing. We loved Mark and we considered this kind-hearted man as one of our dearest friends. Mark always had one of those contagious smiles whenever we got the chance to see him and he was always upbeat and ready for a good laugh.

Mark was only 62 years old when he passed away and he is going to be missed by us and so many others including several charitable organizations. He was a Board member for the Cailloux Foundation, which over the past several years has helped our rescue ranch keep on doing what we do best—rescuing animals.

Mark and his sweet wife, Karen, loved our rescue ranch as much as we loved them and the two of them donated both their time and money to help out our rescue ranch anyway that they could. And our rescue ranch will always be indebted to them and to the Cailloux Foundation for all that they have done for us.

Last night, when Kinky called to tell me the sad news about Mark's passing my eyes immediately filled with tears and I was caught speechless, because I knew that we had lost one of our dearest friends.

Kinky, Tony and I send Karen and their family all of our love and our deepest sympathies. We loved Mark Moore and we will always miss him, as will so many others. Mark will always live in our hearts. So rest in peace, Mark, because you were one of the great ones.

Nancy and Tony - while I did not know your friend nor his family, I extend our sympathies to you both as well as to Mark's family, because any true friend of Utopia Rescue is a friend of ours. He sounds like a very 'special' man and the world is thus definitely sadder for his passing. (That said, I'm betting he was welcomed by many friends - 4-legged and 2-legged - as well as family in his new 'abode' in the Great Beyond. His arrival has certainly been joyous there!)

Peace and blessings to all who knew and were a part of this man's time here on Earth. May your memories both comfort you and keep him 'alive' in your hearts forever.
