A message from Mark Levin regarding his buddy Griffen:
There is less joy in the world today. It’s with great sadness I tell you that Griffen Levin passed away at 1:30 PM today. He stopped eating and drinking the past two days and we could not let him starve. We are mourning now but I wanted to let you all know as you’ve been so kind. If you want to learn more about Griffen, turn to the last chapter of Rescuing Sprite. He was a wonderful little boy, a buddy, a bundle of life and joy. Yet, he was neglected much of his life, until we adopted him almost 4 years ago (February 2007). But in the end, his body broke down. I pray to God he is at peace. We will miss him terribly. Your family loves and adores you, Griffey. 🙁
God bless you all. Mark
On November 30, Mark played the famous poem written and read by Jimmy Stewart about his dog Beu, and then proceeded to tell the story of how he came to know Griffen four years ago and what life has been like for the two of them since, and even now with Griffen’s cancer. It was very compelling and it really gives us insight into Mark’s relationship with his little dog Griffen. If you’re like me you will probably shed a tear, or maybe even a few tears while listening to it, but it’s the best way remember Griffen, through his owner’s own words.
May God comfort you in your grief Mark. You are in our thoughts and prayers my friend.
