Dear Suzan and Len,     

I am so sorry for your loss. You welcomed me into your home over 40 years ago and still to this day it feels like I’m a part of the family. Winky was very special to me , always welcomed me and I love that we enjoyed all the same silly tv shows. I’m praying for you both during this difficult time.        Love You Both,                                                                         Lorri
