Saying Goodbye to Angel

With sadness, we remember former Briscoe Buddy Angel who passed away on July 13th, 2022. Along with her friend June, Angel was a founding member of the Briscoe Buddies Library Therapy Dog service which brought a lot of love and free hugs to the UT Health campus. We will miss you, Angel, and are thankful to have all the wonderful memories that you made possible in the library and around campus. Our thanks also go to Angel’s mom, Library Associate Director Andrea Schorr, for letting Angel be a part of our Briscoe Buddies.
