Introducing Frank

Frank Came Roaring Into Our Family December 20, 2008. Lynne Found Him On The Internet. Frank Was A Rescued Cat In A Foster Home In Kankakee. While He Took To His New Home Quickly, It Took A Few Hundred Photos To Get Him To Adjust To Being Photographed. An Important Part Of Daily Life Here. Once We Photographed Frank, He Bonded To Us. Frank’s Birthday Is July 30, 2008 And He Already Has GIANT Paws. Welcome Home Frank!

Andy Coughlin

Andy Coughlin April 15, 1991 – September 2, 2008


Dear Friends And Family,

Our Beloved Andy, our family member of 17 plus years, passed away on September 2, 2008.


Andy “Adopted” us when he was less than 2 weeks old and quickly became the light of our lives. The many Andy memories will be cherished by all who knew our little man.


Andy lived a life filled with love, attention, happiness, affection and great care. He was our little boy, our Champion, secret agent spy, security guard, incredible athlete, salesman, nurse to us, healer of our broken hearts during hard times, study buddy, my little “Goat” and the best friend we could ever have.


Andy had a few health challenges during the past 5 years. Special diet for his kidney problems, heart murmur and the normal slowing down that all great athletes encounter with age. Like the Champ he was, Andy adjusted, never complained and just loved us. His last week was a challenge and he is now in the arms of angels.


Thanks to all who touched Andy’s life. He will be greatly missed.


Lynne and Tim



Special thanks to all who sent cards, flowers, emails, called us, comforted us and kept us in your thoughts.

Your kindness will always be remembered and cherished.
