She was a very special girl dog. My wife brought Katie home to me when she was just a little puppy. When I retired she was with me everywhere I went.  She would go to the store with me -  she never left my side.

She was always very frightened when she had to go to the doctor so I know she was much happier here at home to pass away.  It was still hard to say good bye.

Nine years ago my wife needed a kidney and a liver transplant.  Katie stayed home with me daughter for five months.

Every year we go back to Jacksonville Florida to the Mayo clinic for my wife’s check up.  Katie went with us. Katie traveled very good in the motorhome .

My wife and I miss her very much. We lost are son about a year ago with Covid-19 . As the year passed by Katie was always with me and my wife Jean.

Katie love to sit on front porch she knew that me and my wife are grieving over Jeff (our son) and now we grieve over Katie.

Now I sit on the front porch by myself with all the good memories of Katie.
