    Thinking of my friend Johnee Lane and Sookie’s human companion for over 11 years. On the eve of your death I am in deep reflection about the generous and kind man you were. You are missed by many. Rest assure Sookies retirement is going well. She has adjusted in my home. I am so happy she was by your side in your tent what a true companion.
    On Saturday will be her and mine year anniversary of her adoption.

      I miss him so much but I know what he’d say if he knew i was crying right now. Most likely a big bear hug and some words of encouragement; he always knew how to cheer anyone up.

    I remember the man. We only talked on brief occasion. But he was a good guy: journey well old dog until then save me a beer
