Memorial for Smarty Pants
(May 5, 2006 - April 18, 2021)


It is with deep sadness Holly said goodbye to her precious pal Smarty Pants.  Smarty Pants was a permanent fixture in the office for 15 years and kept Holly and her team running smoothly.  She is at the “Rainbow Bridge” playing as she loved to do – waiting for that special day when Holly will join her.

In the meantime, Amazing Gracie has taken her spot by Holly’s desk.  In addition to helping Holly, she is in training to be a therapy dog and continues to bring great joy to Holly’s Homes.
