I have many very fond memories of Alden , as my sister and him have been coming to me for at least a month every year for 9 years. But most of all how he loved to spoil my little Sophie. He would buy people treats like beef jerky for her, and they would sit and eat them together. He would cook a chicken and separate the giblets etc just for her ! I would come home from work and Sophie would barely acknowledge me as she was cuddled up with her Papa on the couch . We will both miss you dearly ! We love you xoxo
