This is very sad indeed. We have received incredible help and advice over the years, from Lynn, a wonderful person, on what kind of dog food to buy to how to decide whether it's the end with a pet.  I cry just to hear about this.  Of course we'll contribute on the GoFundMe site, send an email to Lynn and Marc, and post a note on the PV Forum.  Do you have Lynn's email address? Or knowing her, a USPS address?  Do you know the date of the closing? We'll also call her of course if they're still open.
