Her most recent one is about her dog, Gracie, I admit, it made me cry! I’m not a crier, but as I read Saralee’s story last night, Amazing Gracie’s Devotion, the tears were flowing! To anyone who owns a pet and knows how special they can be, this story is very relatable. Here’s a piece of it.
This month, I began writing one column after another for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, but nothing clicked. I finally realized my mind's been on a subject that I've been postponing putting into words. But now it is time.
My dog, Gracie, is coming to the end of her life. From the very moment she saw me in my Miami J neck brace after my spinal cord surgery, she was no longer just my dog; she was my lifeguard. This is my tribute to my beautiful friend's life.

Thank you for another heartfelt story Saralee!
