One Saturday, my neighbor came into my yard followed by a dog, about the size of a small cow, and carrying a small bag of dog chow. I paid little attention to her, but fixated on the animal that had one dead eye and a perpetually bent ear.

My family and I just went through one of the toughest moments any family will have to endure. We lost our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, wife, aunt, sister and dear friend, Sandra Anderson, on May 6, 2013, to cancer.
