Maury Malcolm Friedman: Pet Obit

May 23, 2012

On May 14, 2012, while resting under his favorite tree, Maury began his journey to Heaven. He was assisted in his journey by his trusted friend, Dr. Venable.
Loved ones were at his side to kiss him and say goodbye for now.
There were tears shed and amusing stories told.
All in all, it was a good thing. He no longer has to put on a brave face. He now can smile and run free. He can eat everything he desires!
