~Her Journey Begins


For an adventurer at heart,

her journey begins,

free to explore,

and play among the stars.

When the time comes,

she will seek,

her special place,

and watch over us.


October 8, 2004 – February 20, 2017

To our sweet, beautiful girl, it was our privilege to have you as a member of our pack. Love you forever and always. Only love so pure and deep can cause so much pain with loss.

Run, Kloudy.

Run, explore and play, cancer free.

    1. Thank you guys! It has been a long journey, two years. Just sad cancer seems to win most of the time. Can’t wait to see you guys and play lots of Pickleball! Again, safe travels home!

    1. Hi Beth! Thank you so much. I appreciate your kind thoughts. Hope you are enjoying your “State Series”! Where/when will you be traveling again?

      1. When I started the state series I had no idea how much time it would take for each state! I’m really enjoying going through our old photos and slides. It’s brought back some really good memories. So far we only have a short RV trip planned this spring.
