With the Superbowl approaching, some of you have asked about the predictions of our beloved camel, Princess. For anyone that may have missed our very sad news from last week Ö.
She was a prognosticator extraordinaire known around the nation and, actually, the world for her ability to select winning football teams particularly in the Super Bowl. She was a friend and a companion to all who work at or visit Popcorn Park Refuge. And she never met a graham cracker she didnít like. But time has a way of being cruel, especially as our animals grow older, and aging takes away their strength and ability to enjoy their lives. It is with tremendous sorrow and many, many, many tears that we at Popcorn Park must tell you that our sweet, wonderful camel, Princess, has crossed the rainbow bridge and rejoined her sister Baby in a place where she can once again walk and live without the pain and discomfort brought on by old age.
She went peacefully, surrounded by absolute love in the company of those whose lives were so blessed by her presence.
Princess picking last year's Super Bowl - and she
was right - the Ravens beat the 49ers.
Memorial Services will be held on Sunday, February 2nd, (Super Bowl Sunday), at Layton's Home for Funerals at 250 West Lacey Road in Forked River - 609-971-6800. The Layton's Home for Funerals will be open at 10:00 a.m. and a service with a few tributes and special video will start at 10:30 a.m.
We ask that you please do not send flowers -- a memorial fund has been set up in Princess's name.
How fitting that the celebration of Princess's time at Popcorn Park be memorialized on Super Bowl Sunday!
Donations can be made in memory of Princess, to our special Princess Fund. All donations will be used to help animals that need to come to Popcorn Park in the future, just as Princess once did. You can donate with PayPal, credit cards or pay by mail. Please donate to the Princess Fund.
