Daddy(paw) I am so thankful you came to live with us after Hurricane Harvey. I know James enjoyed having supper with you every day in your room, watching Cheyenne, and all those “sports” for hours on end, as much as you did with him. We reminisced a lot over the last few years but then life gets hard and times get tough. James and I never wanted you to suffer, so he always made sure anyone in charge of your care knew that. We only wanted the best for you and finally gave your “best gift ever, so you said” this past Christmas: a pillow! Imagine that. I pray we served you well. We love and admire you and will miss you terribly. It doesn’t feel the same around here. Thankfully we will meet again on Heaven’s shore. Until then, I love you & James Lee does too!! Sandy
