It's with great sadness we learnt  Carol from Down Under has had to say goodbye to her lovely girl Kara.  Carol sadly lost her beautiful young boy Bruce in November of last year.  Sending Carol and her family lots of thoughts and hugs. x

I saw your comment on my mother's bday post - she used to tell me about an Airedale she had as a girl named Teddy! It seems right that she and Dorcus shared the same birthday! Better to remember with happiness. Ann TBL

Being happy and remember the happy times together is the best way of remembering Dorcus.

Hi everybody, Dorcus would have given up the world to have been there with you on Tuesday. But what a great way of remembering and celebrating the time that everyone had with Dorcus. I'm sorry but my dad has that "far away" look again...

We had that kind of day today too - it is always so much easier to remember the good times, isn't it? That cake looks really yummy. We bet Dorcus was smiling down at all of you.

Have a great weekend.
