I wrote this obit for her. That really helped.
My beloved pet The Honey aka Helene died in my arms on July 30, 2013. She suddenly came down with a severe respiratory infection the previous day, and the cost of further specialized treatment
of a possible heart condition was beyond my means. She was born circa 1998, found as a stray on the street in 2002, and adopted by me, accompanied by my dear friend Tracy, who named her from the AntiCruelty Society of Chicago, in
September 2002. During her eleven years with me, she showed an abundance of love and remarkable intelligence.
She lived a wonderful life for that time and wanted for nothing. She is survived in her household by me, Scott Grunow (the late Barry), and Scott's roommate, Dan Greene. Cremation arrangements and the making of a clay paws memorial have been made by Near North Animal Hospital.
