Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club

From Suzanne Miller: There will be a service for John Cotter on November 17th at 11 am EST at his local church   For those that aren’t local it will be live streamed from the church.  We are waiting for the church to issue the link and will share it just as soon as we have it. We are also waiting for the formal obituary.   I also understand Carolyn is having a memorial gathering the day before the church service (still in planning stages) and would like to have a spokesperson from each of the 3 primary areas of his life: Family, Golden and Work.  

Because of how important the GRF, GRCA and Golden Retrievers were in the life of John, Carolyn would like for as many friends of his from the Golden world as possible to write remembrances that can be read at his eulogy.  She would like for us to reach out to anyone we know who loved John to share their stories of the amazing life that he lived.  She has asked us to compile tributes and photos, or if you prefer, you can reach out to her directly.   Her email address is cottercarolyn@gmail.com.
