    There are no words that seem appropriate to say what her love has meant to me and Chris as well as our entire family. Our precious times together through the years have forever impacted me and although I miss her tremendously I am SO happy that she is with her precious ‘other half’! Denver was such a lucky gentleman ! She is home now!!!!
