    Mr Shope, I am sorry to hear about her passing. She will always be an Angel that was sent to me and my dog Liberty. Mrs. Shope saved my little dog when I couldn’t due to going through my cancer battle. I have told so many of my friends how she helped me save my dog without even knowing me. I honestly feel in my heart that God sent her to me and Liberty. I wish I could have met her because she loved my dog who has been by my side through my battle. She saved my best friend when I had given up hope that she was going to have to be put down. Mrs Shope was a beautiful soul and she is someone that I will always cherish and will never forget. Big Big hug to you and your family and may God bless you all as she blessed me and my Liberty. Sent with much Love to the Shope family from me and Liberty. đź’–
