Beth and family, this has to be a particularly hard time for you. I hope you can have some enjoyment of the holidays with the love and memories carried in your hearts.

I am so sorry for Dodie's family. Too young to be gone. She was a loving girl, kind-hearted, well-meaning and her love for animals unceasing. She is now with the angels and I hope that God has wrapped his arms around her and comforted her. I knew her when she lived in Texas and I have kept her memory alive in my heart since she left as I will continue to do. Soar with the angels Dodie -- you are free now. God Bless Your soul.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my sister last week at 42 and someone taken so young is somehow more difficult. I hope you find peace soon.
