Exactly one year ago the night after Christmas of 2017 my family and I returned back to my brother Jan and sister-in-law Gail’s home after going out for dinner. When I went out to the lanai area and called for my dear dog “Roxy” there was no response? When I put on the outside lights I discovered that my little sweet “Roxy” was floating lifeless in my brother’s pool. I was devastated. Roxy had been a part of my family for over 15 years She was a loving and faithful dog and brought me so much comfort and companionship, especially crucial after Terry’s death just a few months prior. Roxy (like Terry) will always be missed by me. My heart will always ache especially feeling guilty that I was not around at a time that my dear Roxy needed me the most, when she had fallen into the pool and I was not there to help or save her .
As a tribute to my dear “Roxy” I will include a short video blog originally done by Terry back in early September of 2016 when we were living at Pensacola Naval Air Station while Terry was undergoing his first series of Chemotherapy. Although it’s been 2 years since this video was taken, it feels like it was just yesterday. I miss my dear Roxy and my dear Terry so much.
