Good morning/afternoon/evening memebers of the Tud community.

i thought i would take some time to write what has been on my mind. First off i want to thank the DHF staff for last weeks videochat. even though i did not have much to say i did enjoy being apart of it.

when i first came to tud i was known as "Philmore". I suffer from bi polar disorder and for awhile i was going thru extreame highs and lows. Pup was the one to keep me in check and tell me to calm down or "shush Joshie" and she would keep me in check. A couple months ago i went back to being my old self.

Pup was one of the few people to understand what i was going thru. She helped me break out of my shell.

All i can say pup is you will be missed and you are still the best mother in the world.

Josh, Thank you for sharing your feelings on both Pup and Bob. I know that you will miss them both. They both had such a positive impact on your life and on others. As I have stated before, Pup (and Bob) now live in our hearts, and their light shines though all of us. Wishing you peace and giving you lots of Hugs!
