My best friend and Remy's co-parent summed her up beautifully:

Farewell Remy: loyal and loving friend, absolute individual, swim star, superwhippet, and lover of anything dressed in balsamic vinegar - happy trails.

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

We are collecting Remy's ashes tomorrow. Some will be scattered at her favorite beach and then we'll be keeping some. Unfortunately, we are about to do a major renovation on our house which means that we have to wait a while to give her a resting place in the garden where she loved to snooze and sun bake :wub:

Thank you all so much for your support during this time, it's great to be a member of such a caring community.

Thank you, the first swimming photo was taken not long after her 15th birthday in January. So sad that things went downhill so quickly after that.
