Saying Good-Bye

Homeless and dying of lung cancer, 57 year old Kevin McClain made a final request: he asked to see his dog Yurtle for one last time. Mr. McClain and Yurtle lived out of a car in Grand Rapids. Shortly after the visit, Mr. McClain passed away. Yurtle was adopted by a family.



Navy SEAL, Petty Officer Jon Tumilson, was one of 22 officers who lost their lives when their helicopter was shot down in August of 2011. His memorial service was attended by over 1,500 mourners, but one in particular was his beloved Labrador, Hawkeye, who refused to leave his master’s side.
