June it's been a sad one....I hope you were there to meet Lilly as she crossed over the Rainbow on June 2nd, She wasn't sick long, but when "it" got her, she no longer could let her back legs carry her....Chris was with her to the end.! Thinking out your Anniversary, and then today watched a clip of your Mom hugging a Deputy that was running for all of you had "crossed that thin blue line".

Forever in our Hearts!
