In loving memory of Sage Ponderosa Noel Jan 13, 2007 - Mar 24, 2018. 

"She is one of my greatest teachers and companions.  She is the source of so much inspiration and artwork.  I adopted her from the Boulder Humane Society when she was 3 years old. Thanks Humane Society! 

We traveled all over the United States and had experiences that will last life times.  She lives on in my heart, the hub of holiness."
