Judy Glore, founder of HEART of Tucson, died from lung cancer. She was an indefatigable advocate for and rescuer of many equines, and a loss for our community.
It’s not what you take with you when you go — it’s what you leave behind. Judy Glore leaves behind many horses who now have a chance at a good life.
Update via KGUN-9 – Judy Glore’s Dying Wish: Her family needs help to grant it.
“My sincere condolences to you and your family. Judy left this world a little earlier than we would have liked; think of all the gifts & lessons she bestowed upon all of us who knew her…the value of hard work, intense compassion, the tenacity to move forward no matter what, her unshaken hope, love and kindness…Judy was a very beautiful human being and through her I was given the greatest gift of all: my beautiful grey horse. Our souls are forever connected Judy…you will be missed but never forgotten. You are now bathed in the most brilliant of light lovely lady. May it shine on all of us forever…”
“I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Judy several times. I know you are hurting but one thing that you can try to take comfort in is that your Mother did more for those animals than many people do for anything in their lives. She was truly a great woman and she will be missed by all.”
Tucson Tails extends condolences to Judy’s family and all who held her dear. Rest in peace, Judy.
HEART of Tucson is a non-profit, pro-horse equine rescue organization run entirely by volunteers. Our mission is two-fold. HEART of Tucson rescues horses of all breeds that are in urgent need of care. We rescue horses that perhaps have been neglected, abandoned or abused. Secondly, our mission is to instruct and raise awareness of the general public about what it takes to own a horse including all the costs involved.
