A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Our beloved dog of over eight years left us on Monday.  Sandy was such a sweet dog and so loved children.  Sweets grew up with her almost from the beginning.  My sisters picked this special pet for my family because of her disposition and tolerance with all the little kids.

Up until the last week, she never even let us know that she was having trouble. Then all of a sudden she virtually quit eating and drastically slowed down. A visit to the vet Friday determined that she was seriously ill. I prepared the kids, especially Sweets when she came for the weekend.

By Sunday I was worried Sandy wouldn't make it through the night. The kids had a chance to say good-bye. There were lots of tears Sunday night and Monday morning. My sister came and went to the vet again with me.

Rest in peace, Sandy.  We will miss you!
