    So sorry for your loss.
    Although we only knew Joe in the latter stages of his life we enjoyed visiting with him. We were happy to be in the position to care for his little Yorkie “Baby” after he moved to his assisted living facility.
    We would bring “Baby” to visit Joe in the facility which he really appreciated.
