In Loving Memory

It is with a heavy heart that we share with you, Becky Palmieri's dad Jim Moore lost his hard fought battle with pancreatic cancer on August 12th, 2014.  Becky is one of the 4 founding members of Placing Paws and her family has been very involved and supportive of our rescue.
Jim was an incredible man, deeply devoted to his family and to the Evans Scholars Foundation where he worked for 40+ years.
He has touched 1000's of lives over his career and countless Evan's Scholars said they wouldn't be where they are today without the help and guidance of Jim Moore.

Pictured is Becky with her family, her dad and the last dog they adopted from Placing Paws last spring "Stanley Pup". Stanley was a faithful companion to Jim. He said he wanted his last dog to be a golden retriever and shortly thereafter a golden puppy came into our rescue. We think he was meant to be the Moore families dog.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Palmieri and Moore families as we grieve along with them.
This world lost one of the good guys, he will be missed by so many.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, memorials to Evans Scholars Foundation, One Briar Road, Golf, IL 60029, or
Placing Paws of Illinois.

Memorial Service Sunday August 24th, 2014, 1:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of Libertyville 429 Brainerd Ave. Libertyville, IL 60048.
