  • Corey Lowndes says:

    I have lots of great memories of you from when I was a kid living across the street. From walking me to school, taking Brew for her walks, all that babysitting generally and Saturday morning coffees at my parents house. I’m happy to see you had a nice full life and you will be missed.
