This is a note we received from Daniela Lopez-Garcia. Her brother Bobby, who passed away recently, was a huge cocker fan and attended one of our picnics. The family asked for donations to NorCal in Memory of Bobby. We received many donations and notes about Bobby's legacy. Thank you to the family for thinking of us at this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Bobby.
" My big brother, Bobby, passed away two weeks ago after a 2 year battle with cancer. He was my first best friend and a truly beautiful spirit that brought joy, positivity and laughter to everyone that he encountered. He shared his compassion with family, friends and furry creatures. His first dog was a Cocker Spaniel that he rescued in junior high school; Bobby named him Cisco. Our entire family fell in love with the long ears and big eyes of Cocker Spaniels. Bobby later brought Sancho and Roscoe into our lives; they lived to 14 and 16 years of age- and were our family pets As an adult, I rescued Ham and adopted Bacon; they loved their Tio Bobby. Bobby and his wife adopted Sundae and Bootsy. We've had Cocker Spaniels of all colors, and we adore our furry companions. Fond memories of my brother include going to Pt Isabel Dog Park, walking the dogs, and playing in our yards with the dogs. When my brother became ill, our dogs, and his dogs, provided him with daily joy. In some respects, Cocker Spaniels act as a bonding agent in our family. I know that my brother would be delighted to hear that people have gifted NorCal Cocker Rescue with a donation that will be spent to make a difference in the lives of our dear wide-eyed, precious Cocker Spaniels.
Like my brother's laugh, your organization shines light onto others. Thank you for all the work that you do to make the world a little brighter."
Our thoughts go out to the Lopez-Garcia family.
