I work with Stephanie Sakatos and I just want to say that I am sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know that I don't know your family and I didn't know your mother but from what I read in the obituary she seemed like she was a beautiful person inside and out. If you need anything please don't hesitate to give me a call.

So many memories of times shared in the summers and visitations between our families.
Gus and Ditty were the Best Cousins you could ever want to have, or know. They were very special and always a joy to be with and around.
I just wanted to let you know my thoughts and my prayers are with you and your family through this heartbreaking time. Nothing I can say will ease your pain but just wanted you to know I am thinking of you. Love to you and your family.
May her Memory Be Eternal Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη, Eonia i Mnimi

We were neighbors of Gus & Ditty. After Gus's passing we learned Ditty was trying to find a home for Gus's chihuahua, Dino. I fell in love immediately with Ditty and darling Dino. I never had a dog, but Dino had me by the heart. Ditty introduced me to their vet, Dr. Hill, the best in town. We would pet sit for each other after she got Zoe and Dino passed, I had to have another chihuahua...her name Chloe. Zoe & Chloe. We always had so much fun together. Precious memories. Love forever. Rest in peace dearest Ditty.
