Thelma, I was so sorry to hear about Mike. Mike and I used the same dog groomer, Carolyn Brazeale , so I would see him now and then with Zoe. I took Molly to Carolyn on Friday and she was the one that told me about Mike. I was shocked. I knew that he had not been doing well since Lisa died, but did not know that he had any medical problems. I know that this will be hard on Zoe, as dogs grieve just like humans. I will saying prayers for you and your family.

Dear Michael: You know how much my family loved your family. I have very fond and funny memories of your Dad. He was so witty and full of life. He never failed to make me smile. We are here for you and are praying for you. Our deepest sympathy. Janet Ford & Pat McIntyre
