19 Feb Zeller, Speak: Remembering Our Friend
2/17/2009 – 2/15/2021
This beautiful boy left us to get his angel wings Monday morning, February 15th, just two days shy of his 12th birthday. He was diagnosed two weeks before with cancer and then he rallied and had a very good week and a half, including a good Valentine’s Day, which he richly deserved. He had the biggest heart and loved so many; he had a way of seeing into the hearts of others.
Zeller served as a CCI Facility dog to New Hope of Indiana for 10 years. The work he did impacted many lives. His first day of work was Valentine’s day 2011. I remember him being greeted by people in day services and Zeller smiling while everyone petted him. He knew he was home. He marched in Halloween parades dressed as a squirrel, a dragon, and a reindeer just to name a few. He played fetch in the back hallway, ate apples with Sister Rita, and best of all, laid his head in our laps.
Everyone smiled when they saw Zeller, whether at work or out and about, he brought so much joy to people. He reminded us to be patient and kind, and to open our hearts to one another. When you think of Zeller and how much you loved him, please remember he loved you too.
Zeller remains always loved; never forgotten.
