Friends of Flicka has lost a friend with the passing of Rolf G. Ljungkull.
Rolf and his wife Elisabeth have supported Friends of Flicka since the organization was created. They have had a lifelong love of animals and were happy to help animals in need. They were truly friends of Flicka and her brother Kodiak and we deeply appreciate that they chose to remember Friends of Flicka at this sad time.
