Today is a very sad day for our family.  Our precious little Sugar Bayer has passed.  All that knew Sugar say she is the most spoiled little girl ever.  The truth is we were the spoiled ones.  She loved and cared for us as much as we did her.  She taught us patience, strength and laughter.  She was never four legged to us.  She was one of the family.  With her Christmas outfits, rain gear and Halloween outfits and all.  Her favorite things were camping, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, golfing, and even drank beer with dad on occasion.  A little over 3 years ago last October a vet told us she would not last two weeks.  In that time our 2nd and 3rd grandchildren were born.  Cassey and Tim, and Courtney and Dan got married.  We relocated our home and business.  So many happy occasions and ball playing would have been missed if we listened to the vet.  We are very sad she is gone.  But so happy and grateful for the 15 years we were blessed to have her as a member of our family.  Life is always difficult and even more so when you lose ones you love.  We have many pictures and memories to help us remember and to look back at and smile.
