Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
--Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991) American Writer and Cartoonist
Last night, my dear friend, Jesse, lost his beloved and devoted dog, Buddha, after three months of battling cancer. He was only five years old. Buddha was a source of joy for all who knew him. His exuberance for life, kisses and tennis balls knew no bounds. He loved to hike and swim and play and go for car rides. He seemed intent on bringing everyone he met love and laughter. His sweet presence in our lives will be sorely missed.
