Sad Day...

So, I just wanted to let all of you know that Gary and I had to have Deacon put down on Monday (March 2). It was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do, but we know it was for the best for him. Trying to explain all of it to Alex has been tough as well. However, in the midst of all of the sadness, Gary and I have talked about funny stories and happy times that we had with Deacon that we haven't mentioned in a while. Anyway, we just wanted to thank all of you for the calls, e-mails, texts, and cards. We truly appreciate it!
