Dearest Andy & Patty, We were saddened to see that Spike passed away so suddenly, she certainly enjoyed her time with both of you. You took wonderful care of her. She is in the hands of the Lord & with her family in passing.
We are so grateful that the two of you made her time on earth so pleasant! Sometimes words just aren't enough when trying to express a loss of a loved one. If there is "anything" we can do for you in time of your grieving, please contact us! We will always be there for you!
Forever Family, Lyle & Beni Jo Wright
