Re: Joys And Sorrows

Sorrow: I lost my dog to cancer today. She was the best dog in the world, and I will miss her so very much. The rewards of pet ownership, and the pain of the inevitable loss, are immense. It was a privilege to share these years with you, Ashley, and you will always have a place in my heart.
