Megan, Dave, Enzo, and family, I so enjoyed reading about your father/grandfather's life. I am not at all surprised to see that Megan's father was a most wonderful human, with a love of dogs. My heart breaks for you right now - I am sending you all my best wishes and love. May his wonderful memory be a blessing for all of you. Elizabeth
