A Birthday Observance

This morning I'm remembering my dad, whose birthday is today. It's difficult to believe that Dad passed over 2 years ago in August 2008, because he's always still around in some way. Either through the letters I write to others (which he always did) books I read, Dunkin' coffee (he liked it black with sugar- yes, I remember) or many other things. So, today in honor of what would've been my dad's birthday I started reading a book by one of his favorite authors. I'm reading Vince Flynn's "Extreme Measures" (fiction) which is a thriller featuring Mitch Rapp, a character who works for the CIA. I think that as I read it (even through my thoughts) that dad can hear it, as if I'm reading it to him. Happy Birthday, Dad. You'll always be around. Love, Rob

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
