“[Julie Rich] provided peace and relief to all who came to her. She enabled so many of us to love others more deeply, with more empathy, than we ever believed imaginable.” “She was truly animals’ best friend.”
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
The sudden death of "Aunt Julie" Rich in August 2010 while undergoing hospital tests was a shock to her many fans around the globe. After two online memorials and a barrage of testimonials pouring in, her family decided to collect and edit Rich's writings including articles, an unpublished manuscript, case histories, client testimonials and tributes from her websites (petcomm.com and passedoverpets.com) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/petcomm). Julie Rich's complete works were posthumously published in 2011 in three volumes.
Since her untimely passing, friends and clients have made donations in her memory to nearly one hundred animal charities. This week, however, is the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Julie Rich and her family were very much involved with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund from its earliest days. Cantor Fitzgerald was the company that lost 658 employees in the tragedy. The Fund - which helped support the Cantor families - including coverage for their ongoing health insurance and college funds for the deceased employee's children - has in recent years paid it forward, raising and distributing over $250 million for victims of terrorism, natural disasters and emergencies. The CFRF takes no operating fees; 100% of every donation goes directly to victims’ families.
Julie Rich lived in the Tampa Bay area but came to New York, volunteered at a memorial for the Cantor Fitzgerald families, did fundraising for the Relief Fund and also worked extensively with the Ground Zero K9 dogs and their owners. She was later featured in a “New York Village Voice” article for her 9/11-related volunteer work.
