Dog Reunites With Family Years After Owner Dies

After six years with a foster family and almost two years on her own, through Hurricane Irma and who knows what else she faced, Hannah is back home with the Rodgers family.

Simon Gilby, his wife Helen and their children Chloe and Angus were flying to see his family in the United Kingdom on the weekend when the tragedy struck.

"They were excited and happy, but sadly, they didn't make it to the UK".

"Simon was my soulmate and he was an unbelievable, devoted, loving father to our young children. We will love Hannah and care for Hannah just as she did", said Scott Rodgers. Simon Gilby's mother had flown over from New Zealand to help the family make plans. "On the way to their stopover in Dubai, Simon passed away", the Givealittle page reads.

Friend Sarah Bichan set up a Givealittle page to raise funds for the family. About $3200 has been raised so far.

"Helen, Chloe and Angus are shocked and devastated and grieving".

"Helen and her whanau will need love, support and kindness over the weeks and months to come, but they will also need financial support". They were working through legal processes with Dubai authorities and waiting for approval from their insurance company before holding a funeral. "Emirates offers honest condolences to the family and is providing them with support and assistance".
