Hi
Our ‘sincerest’ condolences to Madeline and family ❤️. We met Louie & Madeline when we moved to Tillsonburg, I was hooked. A beautiful couple, mostly due to my dog, Lucky shown below, who Louie and Madeline loved to see on our walks. Lucky always stopped in front of their house when we walked by; she never forgot the house, and especially the occupants. She especially loved going in and visiting, lol.

Now, when we walk by, I feel very sad, and Lucky still perks up her ears, and stops right in front of their house. I will see you Madeline, and Louie will forever live in our 💕. We will never forget you, and your smiling face ALWAYS!
