Guestbook for Lacy Island

  1. Hello sweet Lacy! We are so happy to see that you are now in good hands and on the road to recovery. My daughter, her friend and I found you in distress at Crescent Beach as we were collecting seashells along the shoreline. I am so thankful that we made a last minute decision to take a walk at the beach that day and that MMRS was able to come to your rescue. You captured a piece of our hearts that day.
    We are all hoping and praying for your full recovery 💙

  2. So wonderful to hear about your progress, Lacy! Keep gaining weight and have fun in fish school! 💙

  3. You are making such incredible progress, Lacy! We are all so proud of you and hope that you’ll be ready to return to the wild soon 💙
