    Oh my dear sweet girl. I can not believe you are gone. I am heart broken, I will never get to see you again. I am so sad for your mother, your family, the grandchildren. Most of all, I am sad that I will not be able to speak to you again. My heart hurts my girl, for all of us, including you sweet Sheridan Rose Blue Dog. You are and have been like a daughter to me from the first time we met many years ago. You will always be loved and thought of by me. I miss you and I do have sweet memories of the time you spent with our family. I have memories to cherish dear Sheridan, but I would rather have you here today with us. God let your light shine upon our dear Sheridan and welcome her into your heavenly Kingdom Jesus, I pray. Amen. Love, Momma Josie and family
