I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. Miranda and I fell in love with fuzzy as soon as we met him. He was such a kind spirit and so funny too. I so enjoyed spending time with him and listening to his stories. I have no doubt that he has left a lasting impression on many people, just as he has on us. Love and Prayers from my family to yours.
