my condolences to you and the families.

Shelly : I am almost at a loss for words. You and Tom both know that just isn't me. I remember the first Day I met you and Tom out on Raeglan Rd. I was looking for a groomer I could trust with Sam. It was like the big guy upstairs had sent not one but 2 Angels to end my quest. I walked in carrying Sam , there was Tom the greeter with the big Smile and Hello , he spoke as if he had known me all my life...… and of course you were busy with a pup working away. I felt so at home and relieved I had found you two. Then when Jake came into my life last year , you guys were there! Tom the greeter sitting behind the desk with a big smile and a big hello...….. and you working away on a pup! Shelly I sure will miss Tom but know he is sitting up there with a big smile on his face watching over all of us down here. You sure were a lucky lady to have had him in your life and he was really a lucky guy to have had you in his life here on earth: and , I think I was the luckiest of all to know you and to have know Tom. Jake and I will see you soon. Wayne
