    The “next door neighbors” here,

    What a “dahling” she was, we all had her so confused as to what our dog’s name is. I’m sure she’ll be sorely missed by each and every one of you. Always remember the good times!

    To our Best Friends!
    May your mom rest now, she is truly an Angel in Heaven watching over all of you!
