Obituary For Sankofa Goldie Jackson McNeal

On April 7, 2023, after almost 16 years, Sankofa “Goldie Jackson” McNeal transitioned to her final resting place back with her creator. Sankofa moved to Georgia from Texas in 2009. The word "Sankofa" means go back and bring forth the good things. The Sankofa symbol is a bird looking backwards while flying forward. This dog was truly a good thing always moving forward!We’d like to say “Thank You” to …*Paws, Whiskers and Wag Pet Crematory*Banfield Hospital [Dr. Tolliver, Dr. Williams and Dr. Pilkinton]*Cobb Veterinary Internal Medicine [Dr. Boozer]*Pet Smart Grooming*Wag-A- Lot*Camp Woof Daycare and Boarding*Playhouse on Ponce*Bark Atlanta*Decatur Presbyterian Church [Blessing of the Pets]You ALL always looked out for Sankofa whenever she was in your care.Although sleeping was her favorite pastime, she was very social and often seen around Atlanta at the…*Atlanta Braves Bark-n-the Park*Atlanta Botanical Gardens Reindog Parade.

    Rest in peace Sankofa. I was lucky to have met you during Christmas one year, when you were an award winner. Having worked with your mom for a number of years, it was so very obvious the love and joy you brought to her life; which I'm sure lives on in her heart. With fondest memories, Tony Anneski
