Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
We became friends through our niece Lynn & Getchell family. We will never forget our time together on our Canadian trip. We were good Facebook friends and fellow Golden Retriever lovers. We will miss you!

I'm in total shock and my heart is broken. I can not express how much this incredible woman meant to me. I'm grateful that we took the time to tell each other the joy we found in our shared humor, and our friendship. My love goes out to all who knew her, especially Pen, and Lynn. I shall love her forever.
