Lou, David & Family, You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. It doesn't matter when the time arrives, it is always difficult. Our crew is getting a bit older and it is a little easier to travel. We hope to get to PA in the next year or two. Take care.

In memory of a great Veterinarian. Few cared for animals like Dr. Aucker did. Most seem to be in it for the money today. Ralph enjoyed working with animals and caring for them. Money was always second to the pets he cared for.

Stan - Carol sent me this today. I am so sorry for you. I know that despite joking around about "Ralph and Jayne", you loved them so much. I hope things are ok with you and your family. It has been a crazy 30-something years for the B/Gs. I imagine you haven't stood still, either! If you have a second or two, let me know how things are in your life. If you want to contact Carol, her email is barclayoms@yahoo.com Your old pal, Hue I'm still buzzardly, even though I'm 55!!!!!
