In memory of Rhoda Frohlinger, a vivacious, bright and caring person who loved animals and gave generously to several animal charities. Rhoda taught Humane Education and helped shape the curriculum for the New York City Board of Education while at P.S. 83 in the Bronx where she worked for 25 years. As a master teacher, who later taught student teachers at Lehman College, she made a difference in the lives of so many of her students, friends and her family, and she is sorely missed.
In loving memory of my sweet and wonderful kitties, Isabelle and Daisy.

In memory of my pit bull, Brownie, with the velvety white tummy, and galactic brown eyes, dappled with flecks of gold. I used to take him to the local nursing home, where he was greeted by a huge gushing of oohs and aahs and lots of cooing, where elderly hands patted his enormous head and rubbed his belly and treated him like a prince, so enthralled by his lofty status. Everyone became so excited by his visit that not a few remembered their own dogs, sometimes as far back as their own childhood, and were thrilled to tell stories about them, while all the time playing with Brownie, whose tail wagged wildly as he moved slowly from one to the other, giving kisses and licks, making everyone feel good and loved. Brownie passed away at the age of 15, and this is my tribute to my perfect companion.
To my mother and father, who taught me that compassion is the single most important thing in this world.
