I remember when we bought our house and moved in next door to the Davenports. I was very worried that my 5 dogs would bother them barking. Both Mr. and Mrs. Davenport were the best neighbors possible. We shared love for animals and I remember how much they loved Scooter and Tex. ALL my memories of Mrs Davenport are cherished and I feel an emptiness knowing she is not a few feet away. I really love them both.....
