RIP Parker Henry Brooks Frey
Animal Companions Help Us to Heal
Animal companions are a beautiful part of life. They bring us joy, love, and unending affection. They help to heal us. We are dearly missing Parker Henry Brooks, our animal companion of ten years. Those were the best ten years of our lives. Rest in peace Parker. We will strive to live as you have lived—in the moment, with enduring optimism and boundless love.
Pets can play an important role in your recovery. We have all heard of service animals, but have you heard of “emotional support animals?” These creatures are just what the name implies and studies have proven that pets help us to heal from trauma and increase our life expectancy and quality of life. If you own or have ever owned a pet, please share with us your pet stories. Simply write to CityVoices1995@gmail.com with “Pet Story” in the subject line.
