It’s so hard not seeing you across the hall when I get up in the morning. I know your with mom now and that gives me peace but it doesn’t take the pain of not having you with me away. I love you so much dad and you took a big piece of my heart with you. Until we meet again ride in the wind with mom ❤️❤️

Scott,Dawn and families,
Sad to read this.
I can still see your Dad and Mom coming through the door of Northern Sports and Duchess running to greet them.
Your Dad would always make sure she had a treat before he did anything else.
My thoughts are with you.
