Alex - thank you so much for moving this to a topic into this thread Cool

I did notice I had posted in the "Roy & Siegfried" thread Embarassed Embarassed

It was a real treasure to get to take this "Walk in Time" with Dave. There really are no words to do justice to how it makes you feel when you see the top predators of the world up this close. Turn, turn, turn - everywhere you turned, every step that I took made me realize more than ever just what the word "Endangered" truly means. For mankind to risk losing these most precious of resources is a crime against the animals & our future generations that never can be taken back.

I had long been a Gold Level Sponsor. Meeting Dave and seeing the animals through his eyes gave me such an appreciation for the beauty and scope of the TigerHomes mission task at hand. It also made me realize that Dave has literally given his life to these animals. I left there more determined than ever to try to help support the work at TigerHomes in every way. Dave's dream for those animals, and for us - had become mine.

Of the places in this country that I want to visit, The Sanctuary tops this very short list. Often wish my Mother was still alive to see this place, either on the computer like I do, or in person. Knowing her, 2 days after looking at the cams she'd have been in the car! During the landscaping days not only would I have been watching Dave laying sod in the R/T's habitat (while one or more of them looked on) -- I'd have been looking at Dave with Mom telling him what to put where! In her 80s no less!

Rambling again...Ace's beautiful post is so poignant, got me to thinking about that feisty lady. Which is not at all a bad thing. So many thanks to Ace for her lovely word picture and the re-posting of it.
