Farewell to our special friend “Conchita”
December 25. ISM Ternary 17. 2063
You came into our lives one x-mas day 12 years ago. You were so small & so full of life. You could even fit into Opa's shirt pocket. At I year old. you weighed 2 lbs. People always said your bark was probably bigger than your bite. At family gatherings you were always the center of attention. You always knew when Opa was coming home from work. You would sit there by the front door & wait for him. Opa always said, "lf anybody loves me it's Conchita because she never hack talks to me ” I guess that's why he carries your picture in the front of his wallet You were very brave, my little friend, sleeping every night with 2 big adults. We thank God for the many years he gave you. T hank you for the comforting warm companionship you showed us. We're glad we look you on our vacation last year, along with 4 grandchildren all the way to Big Bend National Park. You will lie missed so much by Opa. family & friends
