    Very sorry for your loss. They take a chunk of your heart with them but leave warm memories.

    My goodness, my screen got so blurry that I couldn't read the p.s. It is never easy to say goodbye, but I'm sure Grandpa will let his sleep on his bed with him and take good care of him for you.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Very sorry for your loss of Gander. Cancer is taking too many, too soon. RIP, Gander, hope you and Grandpa meet up and share some comfort.

    Hang in there Brother Richard,

    I'm sorry he's left you on earth.

    I am positive Grandpa won't mind a yellow dog. In fact, I bet that will make him even more special. He was yours, and he was yellow.

    The next time you're in the river bottoms waiting for legal shooting time, you'll feel Gander there with you. It won't feel the same, but it's a painful sort of comfort that gradually hurts less. But it takes time.

    I'm sorry man... Chris
