ARTICLE from the Spring 2006 Issue

IN MEMORY OF ROBERT (BOB) DEFILIPPO

March 22, 2006

C.A.S.H., and Anne and Peter Muller, would like to express to Mary, Bobís wife, and Tara, Bobís granddaughter, the deep sorrow and loss we feel over Bobís passing. Bob was among those rare and special people who touched our hearts. His gruff voice was in stark contrast to his compassionate heart and love for all animals. After Bob moved to Sullivan County, NY, he was able to expand the number and types of animals that he could care for. Bob helped our many demonstrations over the years with his innovative and succinct slogans and artistic devices. He enlisted his grand-daughter, Tara, who drew amazing pictures of animals and political cartoons at an early age. So many mornings Bob would call to tell me to get the newspaper because of an article or a letter that he found. Then he would make copies and send them to us underlined and annotated to save our time reading them. There was no better sleuth! Bob passed unexpectedly and only days after a fire burned down the top floor of his home. He called to say that one cat had jumped from the roof and couldnít be found, and I could hear the pain in his voice, it was worse than the material loss of property. We were so happy when his wife, Mary, said that the cat came back before Bob passed away.

Days before Bobís death, he sent us a list of sayings that he thought we could use. One of them was similar to a Zen koan: ďHunters that get shot can say they walked a mile in deer hooves or bear paws.Ē
