It is with deep sorrow and profound sadness that we share with you our beloved Amos has crossed the rainbow bridge.

Yesterday, Amos suffered a severe neurological event that left him in pain, paralyzed and unable to control his bodily functions. After wonderful medical care and consultation, we made the swift, but mindful decision to let him go. It is our belief that a hero such as Amos should have his dignity at the end.

He was surrounded by his family & friends and will be forever missed. Our hearts ache and the memories of Amos, his life as our family pet, and most importantly, what he did to change the face of supporting children in the State of Michigan, will live on forever.

We ask that out of respect for Amos and the support as he has given to so many over the years, you leave only your support and keep your opinions on his passing, if you have one, to yourself. We are greatly appreciative of the support Amos and our family has received over the amazing eight years he was in our life.

CAP will continue to support children throughout Michigan and Amos' legacy will not be forgotten.

Thank you all,

Patrick, Cindy, Erynne, and Reed Stanton
Dan and Kathy Cojanu

My heart breaks. I always felt a connection with Amos as he was in our puppy group and we watched him grow. In his honor, we always included single serving Famous Amos cookies in our goody bags for programs for the CMU students. We loved the work he did and will be forever grateful for Dan having the wherewithal to start the CAP program. There are so many paw prints on so many hearts. He will be a legend in his own right. And now it is time to run free at the Rainbow Bridge. I'm sure our Chance assembled the Woo Woo Choir and welcomed him with open paws and song. We share your loss.

My heart is breaking for all of you. Amos was such an incredible dog, and he changed the lives of everyone he met. I know every time I saw him at the courthouse, I immediately felt happy. He just had that affect on people. May the memories you have of him and all the hard work he has done help you through this difficult time. Much love to you Pat, Cindy, Erynne, Reed, Dan and Kathy. 馃惗鉂わ笍
