Good news all of the way from Arlington Heights, Illinois! Skye Sonnabend, daughter of Marc and Regan Stribling Sonnabend, is a member of the Inaugural Class of Female Eagle Scouts.

All dogs go to heaven so they say. Boo is home now and chasing chipmunks and squirrels through the grass and trees. His cataracts are gone and his shiny brown eyes can see again. His little black nose shines from a face full of fluffy white hair which has grown back all over his body including a waggy tail like a white feathery plume. He can sit in the sunshine and enjoy the beautiful place where there is no pain or sorrow and no tears fall God bless you Boo. We loved you absolutely and completely. Rest in peace, January 7, 2021.
