This is old news that many of you reading this will already know. The third member of our family, Dr. Jake C. Harleton MD, passed away on Monday, Nov. 24, 2014.
On December 9, after we received the ashes of 'The Doctor,' (as a good friend affectionately has labeled him), our Priest, Mtr. Beverly, read poems to Herb and me in the Garden park by our church, St. Andrew's by the Sea. We said prayers during the Memorial Service and it was comforting to us to give closure to our grieving. We ended the visit by telling humorous dog stories -- our little friend George, Sandy, Tusker, Boomer, Woof-Woof-Willie, and the 'roof dogs' at The Point at North Shore. The stories made us laugh and the pain becomes less.

Dr. Jake is well and healed, running and playing with our previous pets, Tinker Bell, Champ (for whom Jake was named), and Dr. Pepe Le Pew. As many have told us, he waits for us at The Rainbow Bridge.
