A Tribute to Herbie and Chester – We Miss You

Breaking Through with Georgiann - Interview with Bethanne Elion

Click the play button above to listen to the show!


Next week’s planned show has been canceled due to the tragic and sudden loss of our little Herbie. Instead we will be re-airing an interview which was recorded in October 2009, with Bethanne Elion, Author of “Memoirs of the Bathtub Psychic: The True Story of a Clairvoyant and Her Dogs”.

This show will go out in tribute to Georgiann’s beloved Herbie (“Lovebug”) and her equally beloved Sheltie Chester who passed away in 1999.

Georgiann would like to thank everyone for their messages and kind words of comfort and support.

Tribute Show Date – Tuesday 16th February 2010
8:00 pm (EST)

We will be keeping this page as a lasting tribute to Herbie and Chester. Georgiann will use this space to reflect on the memories of her two great friends and so we would appreciate it if you could leave your comments and thoughts below.

    I know we say we own our dogs, but we no more own a dog than we do our children or spouses, as I believe all souls are equal unto God.

    With My Deepest Sympathies,

    Im very sorry you and Dad lost Herbie. I have been imagining the loss you feel without him at home knowing what he means to you and for Dad as well. You get so attached so quickly to a pet who shows you unconditional love all the time. Love you, John

    They say dogs are like their owners, and if that is true then Herbie and Chester must have been the most beautiful and brightest stars just like you Georgiann. I am so very sorry for your loss, but take comfort in knowing his time spent on this earth was filled with happiness because of all the love you gave him, you are the best friend anyone could ever wish for.
    with love

    God Bless

    So sorry for your Loss.

  16. rosemaryNo Gravatar Says:

    I am so sorry for the loss of Herbie, Georgiann. I just lost my dear beloved Moe. I had to have him put to sleep yesterday, February 15th. He was a fox terrier, 16 years old. He was in a lot of pain. I held his hand and told him I loved him as he left his body. I miss him so very much. I know we will see our loved ones again, and that in truth, they have never left us, as love is eternal. may our broken hearts be the space for more love and joy to be held and shared.

    I will always remember Herbie growling in the background during our phone conversations. It was the cutest thing to hear. He was the King of the yard guarding you against squirrels and grasshoppers, barking fiercely like a 100 lb companion. I will always remember the stories of the constant attention he receive when he was out and about with you. I still giggle when I think of the story of the two military guys who were waving hello to Herbie while you were driving your car. Herbie was like a famous Rock Star when he was out with you. And he loved every minute of it. He was a faithful little companion who was truly a blessing. His memories will always live on. My heart goes out to you my wonderful friend. Love & Friendship,

  18. PaulNo Gravatar Says:

    I celebrate Herbie’s life with you, and am grateful that you two were able to find each other in this lifetime. Cherish the memories, celebrate your love and honor your pain.

    Much love to you!

    Steve, thank you so much for support – it means the world to me at such a difficult time.

  22. adminNo Gravatar Says:

    Thank you for your expression of sympathy. Herbie was very special to me and I am finally at a point where I can start feeling grateful for the short time I had with him.

  23. adminNo Gravatar Says:

    Liza, thank you so much for sending energy and hugs my way. It has been a tough journey – Herbie’s passing was unexpected – but I am now able to focus on the beautiful memories we had. With love, Georgiann

    Ken, thank you for your support and understanding. Herbie’s departure was unexpected and heartwrenching. Your words of sympathy makes this transition less painful. With love, Georgiann

    Rosemary, my heart goes out to you for your loss. Moe obviously loved you very much. I stand by your belief that we will one day see our loved ones again. Your words were of great comfort to me and I thank you for taking the time to share your memories of Moe. Herbie and Moe loved us unconditionally and their memory will be eternal. With love, Georgiann

  27. adminNo Gravatar Says:

    Paul, Thank you for sharing in my tribute to Herbie. He was the light of my life and he is sorely missed, but I am now in a place where I can celebrate the great memories we shared. He is unforgettable. With love, Georgiann

  28. ReganNo Gravatar Says:

    Georgiann, I am so very sorry that you lost Herbie. There is a bond between pet and “owner” (not the right word, but you know what I mean) that can never be broken. I still have fond memories of my beloved dog Zeke–he has been gone for over nine years, but now I smile when I remember him, and his picture still sits in a frame on my desk. While I never got the chance to know Chester, his picture shows what a fine dog he was. And I remember when you got Herbie, and your being so proud of his photos, and hearing him bark during our calls. You will never forget either of these dear friends, and I believe they will never forget you either. There is a quote on one of my grandmother’s Mass cards that reads “Life is changed, not taken away.” I believe that that is true, and you will be reunited with your friends again. In the meantime, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, and that you have many human friends who care about you an awful lot.
