God saw that you were getting tired,
And your cure was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with me."
A Golden heart stopped beating,
Adoring eyes went to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
- Carol Aberst

March 21, 1999 - January 21, 2011

January 21, 2011 is the day we lost a dear member of our family to cancer.

Our beautiful golden girl Cleo was five years old when she came to us from G.R.I.N.  She stole our hearts from the very first time we laid eyes on her.  We nicknamed her Mama Cleo because from the first time she walked into our home she took over.  Cleo lived to eat, she was by our side constantly if we were in the kitchen.  She kept us on a schedule.  She knew exactly when it was 6 a.m. (breakfast) or 4 p.m. (dinner) and made sure we didn't forget.  Even though Cleo had severe allergies and issues with arthritis, she was always a happy girl, wagging her tail and willing to please.  The seven years Cleo spent with us were very special.  We have lost a beloved friend and will miss her always.
