Noel Meystrik In 2016 I brought my family to CMA to see Winter I’m so glad we didn’t put the trip off so we could hear her tweety call in person, a most precious moment I will cherish. Love her forever,  Noël, Emma and Shelby.
Yasmine Martinez I really like Winter the dolphin and I really wanted to meet her someday. When I found out she had passed I cried for a really long time. 
Art by me :D  Winter has been…
Lex Green2022 Art by me :D Winter has been my inspiration since I was little, although I don’t lack a limb. When I was young, I fought disease (not sharing the specifics for personal reasons) and was very close to giving up. Winter gave me the strength to pull through, and I owe her everything for that. It had been my dream since then to meet her in person, but unfortunately I never got the chance. But, she is with all of us in spirit. I find peace in that fact. Swim free, sweet girl.
Amber Bessett I watch both dolphin tale movie and winter was my faviorte dolphin along with hope and winter inspired me to go swimming with the dolphin in march but I will always miss you winter  you are love by every one and you are miss by everyone and in my art class I drawing a dolphin to remind me of winter

Tyler McNeal Winter the Dolphin. I never met you in real life, but you truly inspired me. You taught me to push past the impossible barriers. You inspired me to become a marine biologist and my mission was to meet you someday. I can no longer fulfill this mission though. All the CMA staff have my condolences and I truly do wish them well and thank them for doing their best for Winter during her final hours. I will miss you and it feels like the loss of family. You now swim on in the Gulf of Mexico and your legacy carries on at CMA. I am dedicated to making sure the world never forgets the wonderful CMA staff and Winter herself. Swim free. 
Winter Hope When Winter's ash was released it was the most saddest moment a caregiver even kissed the ash before it got realesed. Love you with my whole heart Winter

Kemper Smith There is no way of measuring the impact Winter had on so many people.  She represented the possibilities of human animal cooperation at its very best.  She provided hope to those who had lost hope and gave love to all she met.  I will truly miss her and her gifts.

Winter is so special and will always be loved and remembered for the hearts she touched and continues to touch. We also need to love all the other dolphins at CMA and all the other nonreleasable rescues there as well. They can also teach us and touch our hearts.
