Mr. McCaig, I am so very, very sorry. She was a wonderfully special girl who left indelible pawprints on your heart. May her memory comfort you more than her absence pains. God bless.

I'm so sorry to hear about June.. losing a member of a team isn't easy. We have them for such a short time.
Rest easy June.

I'm glad I got to meet her at the Bad Lands in ND and Roy Johnson's trial in VA. What memories you have of her..

Our best,

she runs free with no bounds
so you think but not true
a piece of your heart runs with her

your pain is felt deep inside
her eyes bore into your memory
but her love heals all

she awaits you dear friend
clearing the new path to the post
so you can be a team one more time

I'm so sorry, Donald. I wish you could have had her with you longer, but it's never long enough.
