I'm so sorry. You're right. It never does get any easier. Sending hugs your way.


So sorry to hear about Mandy. Thank you for saving her and her siblings...they gave them all a good life.

Mandy had the best life possible, a life she wouldn't have had at all if it weren't for your daughters finding her and her siblings. What a wonderful story of chance and destiny. Her whole life is a tale of great good fortune and love. Godspeed, Mandy.


As others have said, hopefully as the pain lessens, you will remember the weather you saved them from. I know you say "it never gets easier". That in a nutshell is what is perfect about you. You know you are surrounding yourself with creatures who you will outlive. You keep doing it. Taking some of the toughest cases. That is why you are so special my friend. You do it knowing it never will be easy. Peace, Love, Strength, Comfort.

Oh Chrystal, so sorry you are dealing with yet another farewell. But what a lucky girl Mandy was, as were her siblings, to have their way to you.

Sending hugs.

I am so very sorry. It really is the hardest part of loving them....letting them go

Karen Lucas

Oh, Chrystal, heartbroken for you. But what a long good life they both had. Such sweet faces. How lucky they were to have had you and your husband and we need to thank him too for always being there for you and the animals you both love. Never ever easy.

Ginny & the Fur Family

I remember the story and that snow. You all were just in time to save the pups. Time marches forward for us all and so much faster for our pets. You gave them love and comfort and a great life. It never gets any easier. Mandy is out of pain now and she still lives in your hearts. She is running free with here siblings across the bridge. God bless the soul of dear Mandy - she will still be forever loved. So sad for you. I feel your pain. All who have ever loved and lost can feel for you. Our prayers are with you.

I remember that story from your book! What lucky puppies, and how lucky was Mandy to have lived out her life with the Parkers! My Lilly was 14 on November 28th, but she still seems to be doing okay. I pray that she lets me know when she's had enough. It is never easy, and it is always heartbreaking. Try to focus on her glorious life with you, and how you saved those three precious lives from certain death. Safe travels to the Bridge, Sweet Mandy!

Fly free sweet Mandy xoxo


Oh Mandy, what a life of love, friendship and ease you led ; yours could have been a short life that ended in a brutally cold tragedy.

Sending you love Chrystal. It never does get easier but Mandy was saved and loved by you. May you find comfort there.

Chrystal, I am so sorry. She was loved and had a great life. And she had two families who loved her in her lifetime. With so many animals in this world living without love, Mandy had it pretty good.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Oh Chrystal, I'm so very sorry I missed seeing this. I've been so caught up on my own world that I forgot to stick my head out and see anything else. I'm sorry for your loss, I'm sorry you lost another furbaby. I know you did right by her and gave her every chance at the best life ever and I know she loved you for it. Hugs and love, dear friend.

Friends, perhaps a donation in Mandy's name would be appropriate? Winnie's Wish could use every penny and wish list items too! please help where you can.


We're so sorry, Chrystal. Thank you for loving Mandy so much, and so well.
