PENNY BARNUM 8-21-2009

An empty bed

A forgotten food bowl

A hanging leash

A stuffed bear

An unworn vest

A three-pound Yorkie is the two-ton elephant not in the room

Who would have known?

"She was our North, our South, our East and West,
Our working week and our Sunday rest,
Our noon, our midnight, our talk, our song;
We thought she would live forever: we were wrong."

We Love You, Penny

Mommy & Daddy
