John Gray is an Emmy award-winning television journalist and
columnist in upstate New York, as well as a husband, father and
avid pet lover. When John experienced the unexpected death of the
family's six-month-old puppy Samuel, he wanted to turn his pain
into something positive. He wrote this story to help every child
(and grown-up) who has lost a pet.
Shanna Brickell remembers as a child being in awe of what could be created with a box of crayons and a few sheets of paper. The mystery and magic of creativity still inspires her today. She infuses her artwork with light and energy to connect with the hearts and minds of those who view it.
