I just wanted to thank you for all that you guys did for me during my loss of Bubba the brown pug. This past few weeks have been very difficult for me with him not being here. I cry everyday since he passed and its very hard especially this time of the year. He loved to eat and I would find him in the kitchen with me, but not this year. If I could find a way to  bring him back I would do whatever to have him back. I look at him everyday. His birthday was the 12/2 and I would make him a cake that he could eat and share with the others. I have enclosed a pick of him under the tree I put up last year. It was hard for me to put it this year but I did. In hope he would be laying there under the tree. But that didn't happen. Again thanks

Thank you so much for helping the grieving process go easy for me. You all are the best!
