This young woman's name is ssJoanna Burke.  On July 21, 2006, Joanna died in a tragic accident at the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary (TES) doing the work she loved so much, caring for the resident elephants.  She is seen here tending to one of her beloved friends,ssTina, who died on July 21, 2004, exactly two years earlier to the day.  (Tina was born April 26, 1970).

Joanna and Tina are seen here together at the beautiful Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary (TES).  The pink item hanging from the tree is still called "Tina's toy" and is played with by other elephants.


I do not believe that Joanna's life passion and her flame have been extinguished.  She continues her work ~ just from a different place.  

Meet Joanna's "girls" at TES, and those elephants who now walk by her side:

Sing wild songs of adventure,
Invite rainbows & butterflies out to play,
Soar your spirit, and unfurl your joy."

About Me I am forever a child of nature, and all creatures are my brothers and sisters. Although I'm not too keen on brothers shark and snake, they have their place and reason for existing! I love RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS!

I am so happy to have come across Care2 where it gives me a place to stand up and be counted. I think my personal angel made it all happen!

    all who choose love over the tragedy of death

         live as stars radiating in the mane

           of the silence in the lion's roar
