Simone was a registered Pet Partner from July 2009 onward. During those years her accomplishments included visits to patients in acute, sub-acute, long-term care, hospice, and behavioral health. Wherever there was an emotional need, an empty space that needed a true, non-judgmental friend, Simone had the innate sense to help. If a miracle can happen in only a few minutes, Simone was the instrument; individuals may not have been cured, but she brought a safe, healthy interaction that the ailments could be transcended for a short time. So many smiles were left after her visits.

It was her temperament, her personality that made for such rewarding and fulfilling work. Rest in peace now, my little friend.
