Anthem Opinions recently received an email that
"tugged" at our heartstrings.
We couldn't refuse this reader's request to ask if
any individuals in any of the Anthem communities
would be interested in creating something informal...but
special...for those who have sadly lost a pet.
Resident Seeks to
My name is Renee Rosenberg &
I recently lost my heart, my 4 legged love "Tuxedo", to a pack of coyotes here in Anthem.
I would like to start a support group for other pet owners
that have lost their beloved animal to rainbow bridge.
Coping with the loss of a pet can be a very lonely journey
& very difficult. You go through all the grief stages just as you would with
losing a human person. The grieving process takes time.
My purpose is to provide a safe haven were we can learn to
grieve together which many people who don't own a pet just cannot

rear yard is significantly elevated above the street below, and, at the time of
the home’s construction in circa 2001, a metal fence was installed on top of the
rear retaining wall.
Over time the wall has settled
somewhat, and the settlement has snapped apart the sections of
On Tuesday May 17 an SCA employee
visited my home and took pictures to document the settlement
On May 20Ms. Seddon sent me an email stating that she has instructed
her Staff to resolve the problem; sure enough that same
day Otto Pillatzke, Assistant Facilities Maintenance Director, contacted me and
said an SCA employee would be visiting my home.
The employee was at my home later
the same day and re-bolted the fence together. He agreed that he only did
a “temporary” repair as the retaining wall could suffer further settlement.
We agreed that the only permanent solution would be to
rebuild that section of the retaining wall - a very expensive
