I miss you all so much and I am so sorry to hear about Scrub. One of my earliest memories of you guys is a summer that you came home. Dad always had herring and potatoes because Scrub really loved it. I think Dad use to make it on the Coleman stove outside. Hugs and kisses to all and my heart goes out to you all.
