After 12 amazing years, 3 states, 7 houses, and countless wonderful memories, we had to let our Sandy go today. She has done so much for my family that I can’t even begin to describe the impact she had on our lives. She was my Wife’s best friend while I was gone on training or deployment. She let my kiddos wrestle her around, pull ears, poke with toys. She protected them and watched over all the neighborhood kids as they played in the street. Loved hikes and walks around the neighborhood. Loved taking trips and insisted on riding shotgun if the rest of the family wasn’t coming. She Loved us unconditionally right up until the end. She will be missed.
