This letter is written to thank many caring folks who made finding my dog possible. First and foremost, Donna LaSage persistently sought my lost Patty even in the dreadful weather we endured. Before and after I had my fall on the ice, she continued the search even when I could not help in any way.
Without our observant River Forest Police Department, Patty could not have been located. I am extremely grateful to them.
So many friends also took time out of their busy Christmas schedules to look for Patty. My young niece gave up party plans to make and print out flyers that she distributed throughout our villages.
And then my thanks go out to those helpful, concerned folks I did not even know who sought my lost dog.
On this first day of our New Year, I can especially note my gratitude for living in this caring community for 60 years.
