Insights Into Teens: Episode 59 “A Tribute to Dorian”

This week we take time out of a regular podcast schedule to pay tribute to a family member we lost. Last week our beloved cat Dorian encountered some medical issues. After a dire prognosis from the vet we made the difficult decision to put her down rather than to have her suffer. It was a difficult decision but one that was in her best interest.

This week we celebrate the life of Dorian by reminiscing about some of our fondest memories of her. How she adopted us shortly after we moved into the neighborhood. We’ll reflect on all the love and joy that she brought into our lives and some of the more colorful memories we have of her. It’s a podcast of remembrance and healing to help us get through our time of grief. We invite you all to share in our experiences and enjoy some of the wonderful stories we had about our wonderful member of the family.
