Van Leuvan Family, Nutley, New Jersey
My name is Jeremy Van Leuvan. I am 7 years old. I really enjoyed having Rufus around.
Rufus' travels with us included the:
- Grandma's in Pennsylvania
- JDRF Liberty State Park Walk (by the Statue of Liberty)
- Boat ride at the New Jersey shore
We even went crabbing, but we didn't keep any of the crabs! Rufus agreed that they should be freed.
We are sad to see Rufus go, but it's time for him to visit someone else!
Safe travels, Rufus!
