June 19, 2014
It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of our precious “Furry Child,” Gretchen, on Thursday June 19, 2014. She gave us fifteen years of undying devotion, excitement and love. Her cute poses for pictures, love of wearing dresses, and morning trips to get the newspaper have also given us wonderful memories to cherish. Since, as the author says “All Dogs Go To Heaven,” we have the hope of seeing her again… one day. As we mourn her passing, we can be comforted in the thought that now having no more health problems, she is running and playing with her cousins “Lucy” and “Hansel” and probably wondering why she doesn’t have an extra change of clothes with her.
We would like to thank everyone for all of their kind thoughts, words and prayers. Our thanks also go to the staff at Vinton Veterinary Hospital with a special thank you to Dr. Neel for the care they provided to Gretchen.
We would also like to thank Oakey’s Pet Funeral Home & Crematory for the love and dedication they showed us during our time of need.
With much love from Gretchen’s family.
