Barb’s Mother Barbara–Happy 99th Birthday this Month

He was a dog, but once you get to know them and you look deep into their eyes, year after year, you no longer see an animal; instead you begin to see the depth of any human capability of emotion. It is given freely, and the wealth of comfort it brings cannot be completely understood until it is taken from you. Kim Sheridan, Animals and the Afterlife: True Stories of Our Best Friends’ Journey Beyond Death

    A sweet picture of my mother-in-law Barbara Walker (will be 99 on May 14th) and the kind, handsome comfort dog Phoebe. Wish I had Barbara’s thick, pretty hair! Thanks, Sandy, for composing this for all of us to enjoy.
