My beloved little girl, WyNott, passed away ...
She came with me to The Paddle practically every night for nine years to play frisbee with kids and hang-out in the office to greet upstairs diners.
She touched so many people.
Thank you to all of you who donated in her GoFundMe campaign, wrote notes and cards, called me directly and prayed for her. I will never forget your generosity.
She succumbed to a horrible blood disorder - ITP. She almost made after 13 days at BEVS with 9 blood transfusions. Ultimately, a blood clot to her lung was the culprit. She certainly had the will to live, just not the luck.
I was fortunate, however, to have her die in my hands and be able to kiss her good-bye.
A special thank you to the wonderful medical team at BEVS.
WyNott - RIP, November 2, 2022

Some old, some new but always a true testament
to the German Wirehaired Pointer breed!

The Road Not Taken
“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
