Participation at Barbara Bush tribute is appreciated

To the editor,

I want to thank the hundreds of people and their pooches who came to Gooch’s Beach on Sunday, April 22 at noon to honor our dear friend Barbara Bush.

We read a few quotes, told funny stories of our encounters with Mrs. Bush both on the beach and in various locations throughout our communities, sang “You Are My Sunshine,” (a fitting tribute on such a gorgeous day), signed an oversized card to be sent to Walker’s Point, threw flowers in the ocean and donated children’s books to be given to the local libraries and to the children’s wing at the hospitals.

Regardless of one’s politics, we all agreed that she was a special person and deserved our loving tribute. Gooch’s is apolitical ... it’s the party of dog lovers.

We believe Barbara would have felt very happy with the outpouring of affection.
