Karen Boje (Spain) Memorial Bench

$400 of $400 goal

Raised by 5 people in 11 months
Our friend and animal advocate, Karen Boje (also known as Karen Spain) passed away suddenly just a few days before her 58th birthday.
Karen managed the local county shelter for years, worked to transport animals for adoption out of state, made pet food pick up runs to help supply the emergency pet food bank, worked with numerous local rescues, worked vaccination clinics, fostered dogs, owned several and graciously helped animals in need at every opportunity.
Karen will be missed tremendously be her animal friends and family.
In honor of Karen, we would like to raise money for a granite engraved bench memorial to be located at the adoption park within DAGSHIP Rescue. It's a lot of money, but I feel wood and plastic benches will not stand the test of time. 
Every time a human visits our rescue and plays with a pup, adopts a pup or just sits under the shade tree... Karen's words will be shared, "I did it for the animals".
Your support to memorialize this wonderfully kind woman will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello everyone. I wanted to send an update and ask for your opinion. Since we have not been able to raise the funds needed for a high-end granite bench for Karen, how would you all feel about a plaque or stone mounted to or next to an iron bench? Something in the $400 range.
I didn't want to assume everyone would be ok with this change without asking. Thank you.
