Thanks, shirley for letting the family know how much we valued pom.

And thank you for taking the time to interact personally with an old guy who must have enjoyed that contact.

Shirley, that was lovely.
And, my condolences, especially to you, as you were the closest of all of us to Pom.

Well said Shirley.

I may actually include a reference to you in my next prayer in hopes that your grief will be eased.

(not trying to start a fight... feel free to laugh)

I lost mine days ago, and this isn't going to help.



I just got off the phone with one of Lothar's sons. I told him what a presence pom has been here, and what a void his absence will leave. I took the liberty of expressing all our condolences, and his son was very appreciative.




Thank you for that.

Okay, since I started this off on kind of a low note, let me suggest that we all do something in honor of pom this week.

Watch a soccer match, then we can all discuss it.

Okay, well maybe I'll send a donation to the ACLU in his name.

According to the reports, Pom and wife would take in strays - my suggestion was meant to be a positive, not a disgusting play on the terrible COD...

Has the funeral announcement been posted yet?
That usually contains a statement about donations.

My favorite part of his story; how Pom got to Kansas and why he left. We all knew he could carry a torch.

Their sons - Mark Schweder, who lives in Aiken, S.C., and York Schweder, from Hutchinson, Kan. - could hardly believe such a thing could happen to their parents, animal lovers who adopted several dogs and cats.

The couple divorced when Mark Schweder was 2 years old, he said. Lothar Schweder left the University of Georgia in 1973 and moved to Kansas. He worked for and retired from the Kansas prison system, York Schweder said, while Sherry Allen stayed at UGA, where she started working in 1974.

Mark Schweder said his father, though a thousand miles away, stayed persistent in talking to his mother. Eventually, he won her back.

They remarried in 2000, when Mark was 32, and the couple moved onto seven acres in Oglethorpe County.



With regards to donations and such see below:

On Saturday, Athens-Clarke County Animal Control helped to transport the Schweders' seven cats and dogs to Madison County Animal Shelter, where they are up for adoption.

"If anyone wants to take care of an animal or even donate funds so they can be boarded, they can get in touch with me," said Nan McMurry, who worked with Sherry Schweder in the Main Library (University of Georgia - Athens) for more than 20 years. "There's not much we can do for them now, but I know how much they would appreciate help with their pets."

Thanks for posting the link to the animal shelter. They have easy PayPal giving online, and a place to note what it is for.
