I only met Dave and Carole a handful of times at the La Crescent Animal Rescue but they made a huge impression on me. They were both such delightful people.

I think God made them for each other and Monkey knew just when to be on her best behavior. I'm so glad they had each other. It was truly an honor knowing your mom the short time I did. She is and always will be a role model to me.
