    It has truly been a joy working with Mr.Myron the last few years! He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and his strong will! My favorite memories are when I would make him laugh, even when it was not on purpose! May he rest in peace with his beloved animals!

    I will always remember Dr. Holscher for two things, his wonderful memory and most importantly his kind and gentle manner with all the staff.
