With Great Sadness

Late last night, we learned of the passing of a MaPaw family member.

Rickee joined MaPaw in 2006 as an overweight senior. His foster family worked with Rickee to get some of the excess weight off of him and help him learn his manners.

A few months later, Rickee and the McKeever family met at the Green Lane Scottish/Irish Festival and Rickee instantly fell in love. Soon after Rickee was adopted by the McKeevers. Rickee was a special boy and the McKeevers gave him the incredible gift of love.

Rickee ~ wear your silver harness proudly and dance among the stars to the Bridge. Candles are lit to help guide your way. Know how many people loved you and please watch over your family from above.

Our condolences to the McKeever family as they mourn. Thank you for giving Rickee such a wonderful and loving home. You are in our thoughts as we grieve with you.

~ Godspeed Rickee ~

Hi everyone

Thank you so much for the lovely thoughts and prayers for Rickee..He is missed very much and we would ike to thank all of you for the opportunity to love him so much.Rickee went to the other side of the bridge on Sunday evening while in the arms of Jess and Angie he went peacefully and calmly knowing he was loved and that we are hurting right now but we know it was the right thing to do for him...

We would also like to thank Rickees foster parents MIke and Carrie for the wonderful job they did with Rickee in the months before he came to us, he was never anything less than a gentleman'and once he got the meds he needed he had very few accidents, he even tried to teach me to speak husky, unfortunately though I never really got it, but he kept trying..We know that Rickee is in a better place and we are happy that at least his last days were love filled ones,we want to thank him for the joy he brought to us and also for the new friends,especially Mike and Carrie.

Mike, Carrie, our prayers are with you also as we know how much you are grieving too..
With love
The Mckeevers and The Mushinskis
