    Rest in peace my friend. I think of you daily and I know you and Saddie and Cbow are reunited plus other dogs you’ve known and loved. You are also with your Mom. All those things bring me peace. I miss you and always will. We had wonderful times and those memories comfort me. We had a service for you at Good Shepherd. It was lovely 🙏
