The Final Goodbye

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

Blackie affected many young lives over the last five years. Two fifth-graders who helped move the hens and chicken coop from the upper school garden to Sunflower Sentry several years ago came to her memorial and noticed that there was no sign to mark her grave.

What to do? They removed Blackie’s  name sign from the coop, attached a wooden stake and carried it to her grave.

The kids found the perfect place and installed the sign so everyone could find her.

Blackie was very special to both of these kids. They have loved and cared for her since they were second-graders. Today they said their final good-by.
