My family was shocked to hear you are such a softy dog lover. I remember you talking about “Rescuing Sprite”.

I was even more touched when on Monday I held my best friend of 15 years as he died. For years it was he and I against the world. It is still hard to think about it.

After 20 years in the Army I have seen and caused my share of spilt blood and destruction. Never have I felt this bad.

Knowing that I am not alone in my feelings help and I want to thank you for a message that seemed to be aimed right at me. I would enclose a picture but I am technologically challenged.
