Chester - We Honor You

Today we honor Chester. He left his body 5 months ago today. Chester was a golden lab - 11 1/2 year old - the center of my parents lives. He was and remains the great teacher. Today we honor Chester.

With respect - sharing with all - Sequoia

Yes - Chester was wise and had a tremendous English vocabulary. He knew my parents thoughts AND their words. We talked about him all night. How I wish I had known him face to face - nose to nose - but we feel his presence day and night. Thanks for writing to us. He will ALWAYS be with us.
Love,
Sequoia (and Cindy)

What a grand old boy he was.
