Hey sweetie, Dollie, if you weren't right down at the end of the stairs, I'd probably have lost it by now. The last two cells that I had, neither one of them would post on here. I even had a guy at Circuit City. He couldn't figure it out. So although it's been like Forever, except last night, and I didn't get to wish you happy birthdays, merry Christmases, happy Easter, happy Angelversary or anything on here! I'm glad that's changed now though D8llie. I know that you already know it but daddy no longer has his "big ole' truck." Sometimes I really get to missing it and You Know Why! That was YOUR truck. But Dot, I couldn't afford 10 mpg, even as cheap as it is now. So I got a, what your little half brother ZEB calls 'our little car." He doesn't like it because it doesn't have a big console seat so he can sit there and watch for me. But, like they day, "he'll have to get used to it." I think of you daily Sugar. Some days, lots more than once. I'll be out cleaning the "little car" and your stone will catch my eye. Well, the older I get, the less of a hurry I got into. I'll take a break by your garden, clean your miniature bird bath, and refill it. Next thing I know, I've forgotten my "little car, "and grabbed a fan rake, brushing up up around your garden, if you could call it a garden. The dirt there is as hard as a brick and I don't know anything that would flourish there. I don't know I'm telling you this. I'm sure that you already knew. Dollie, Sugar, daddy's gonna have to run, shave, shower and hit the sack. Have a great nights rest, Baby. Daddy'll speak with you in the morning. Tell all my little friends that I said "heoklo" and that I love them. But Dollie, I love You like no other. You're my Dollie Gurl. But Dollie, I love Zeb just as much. Ya know why? He's my Little Boi. He would have aggravated the fire out of you Dot. No, I'm just kidding. I can picture you snarling and growling at him like you did Snowbee. One thing about it. He never bothered you again . Dollie, you truly were unique in Every way. You had a personality as big as Texas. My, my, my. We had a great ride, didn't we Sugar? Now I'm sad. Well, I'm off to shave. See you soon Dollie. I hope, with all of my heart. Forever, daddy

It continues to be a real and true honor for Cinnamon and I to visit with you on your special days, Dollie, as we pay tribute to your gracious & mighty spirit, and to the everlasting love you share with your Dad Richard and family, on your sacred 21st birthday today.

Bless guardian angels Dollie, Jake and Snuffy; Dad Richard & family, beloved Zeb, Abbie & Snowball, and your universe of souls, on four legs and two, forever and ever.

Dollie & Richard,
Bless forever gorgeous & sweet, gracious, loving, faithful, determined, giving, joyful, knowing, courageous and gentle lady Dollie, and Dad Richard, on beloved Dollie's 8 year angel day.
Once again, precious angel Dollie, it is a privilege for Cinnamon and I to spend a few moments with you on your angel day and birthday each year, as we pay our respects, and celebrate your glorious, tender heart and soul, and the wonderful life and love you share with Dad Richard and family, on your 8 year angel day today.
My thoughts and prayers are once again with you and yours, Richard, and your beloved Dollie at this time.
As all of us here know and share with you, Richard, most of us several times over, as profound as the impact of our angels is on the time we share with them here on earth, the real measure of how special they are is that they stay with us, in our hearts and by our sides, for the rest of our lives.
As is reaffirmed for me with every memorial I visit, and most definitely here with your dear Dollie, Richard, the sharing of home, life and love with an amazing spirit like your Dollie is one of the most wonderful and spiritually fulfilling things a person will ever experience here on earth.
Bless guardian angels Dollie, Jake and Snuffy; Dad Richard & family, beloved Zeb, Abbie & Snowball, and your universe of souls, on four legs and two, this day and every day.

Happy Birthday Dollie Gurl!
The stars begin to twinkle in the sky, but there is one who shines ever so brightly, its lil Miss Dollie Gurl and she shares her love with you. Before she joins the others for the festivities she sits upon a cloud, and begins to play with a single star, one in particular. As she spins, rolls and tosses it about … it’s begins to get bigger and brighter, more radiant with every touch … then she releases it to the sky and it begins to SHINE BRIGHTLY. As she looks up upon her star that shines so bright she whispers to her daddy, Star light star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.
When she looks down upon the clouds she knows she is dusted with many flower petals and looks upon her daddy with a smile. She knows you’ve been puttering around in her garden and how very much you Love Her! Then standing there beside her is a very handsome lil man, she smiles as he hands her a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and says, “Happy Birthday Lil Miss Dollie Gurl”. .. Come on the party awaits … as she looks upon her star she smiles … When you wish upon a star all things are possible. All our love, Luna & her mom Nadine

Dollie & Richard,
Birthday blessings to forever beautiful, dignified, loving, thankful, generous, caring, precious, devoted, brave and kind lady Dollie, and Dad Richard, on beloved Dollie's 20th birthday.
Cinnamon and I have returned, Dollie, this time on the eve of your 20th birthday, to remember once more your gentle, gracious, joyful and vibrant heart and soul, and to honor your spirit and life, and the love you share, until the end of time, with your Dad Richard and family.
As you know as much as anyone here at Critters, Richard, neither the number of years shared, or their age, or the passage of time, or even the reason our angels had to leave for the Bridge, does anything to diminish the devotion and unconditional love we feel for, and share with, amazing spirits like your beloved Dollie.
And rest assured, Richard, that your little lady will never forget you. Just as with you, the memories you two share only become clearer, and more intense with the passage of time.
Bless guardian angels Dollie, Jake and Snuffy; Dad Richard & family, beloved Zeb, Abbie & Snowball, and your universe of souls, on two legs and four, now and forever.

Hey Tator Bug,
I'm sorry that it's been a while since I wrote. I did a little work in your garden. How do you like that lady bug? I got tickled when I saw it 'cause I thought of you. Dollie, the cross stitched picture of you is out of this world. I emailed Sharon and asked her to remove that stuff where your other picture was. I couldn't do anything with it. I miss you Little Miss Miss. I'm so glad that you're so close. Zeb and I talk to you every night. I sure hope that you catch my kisses. At least one anyway. I'll be home soon Dot. The light's on and you call daddy if you need me. I love you more daily. Be a sweet chick and I'll be there in a jiffy. I love you with the whole of my heart, dad

I hope to God that it's not too much longer Dollie. Oh how I want to see you again. That pretty little precious face. My goodness. How I miss it still. You know, with all the memories that you and I etched, I have something new to say Hello sweet lips. I'm sorry that I didn't get to write you sooner. My phone fell apart and I'm having to borrow one from a friend.
I sure hope that you enjoyed your angel day. I thought about you all day long. Of course I do most every day. I love having you right outside of the door. I suppose that some days I stop and talk to you ten or more times. I did you some cleaning and sprucing up Friday. It looks better but still not as dainty as at the other house. The ground is so, so hard here that it's about impossible to plant anything and get it to grow
Dollie, I don't know what to say. I don't know if it seems like seven years or not. It seems that here lately. I think about us more often. Zeb's seven now and he's slowed down a lot. He's not the rambunctious little puppy that he once was. I've had a bunch of health problems and I'm in constant pain. The doctor called me some minutes ago. I had an MRI Friday and it showed that I had multiple tears in my rotator cuff and in the ligaments in my shoulder. I doubt that I'll have surgery though. I don't have anyone to look after my son. Boy, he sure does love me Dot. There's no doubt that he was heaven sent to look after me after you left.
You know, with all of the memories that you and I etched, I always have something new to smile about. But it's not all smiled though Sugar. I still have many nights that I cry and walk the floor. But as fast as time moves now Dot, I'll be Home soon. Yep, I sure will.
Tell Puck and Toby and Princess and All of your precious friends "Hello" and I'll bring them all some treats.
I love you Sweetheart. I always have and I always will. Be an angel and be watching out for me. I'll see you Real soon.
Love Forever, daddy
