June, 2004. Chester was a beautiful, sweet 12+yo mahogany sable boy turned into TLAC shelter in Austin. We brought him into our program in February. Chester was adopted, but several months later became gravely ill. He was brought him back into the program only to find he was dying from liver failure. Fran took care of him for a few days, giving him a warm, comforting bath and lots of love. Then she was with him in the clinic when the doctor helped him gently cross over. Fran says Chester was a wonderful boy who fought gallantly to live right to the end. She is grateful she was able to give him the love and attention he deserved and then able to be with him when he crossed over.
