    Our best friend and helper passed away this afternoon after a short illness. We will miss her terribly and will not replace her with another. I will have to chase the cats and the goats for her. I promised that I would. She was a very special friend.

    Dooley it was quite a shock to read your post. Chance was very special to all of us here at GardenStew and she will be sorely missed. I know no words can express how saddened I am but know that I feel for you and DR at this sad time.

    Dooley & DR I'm very sorry to hear the news. Chance has been a part of GardenStew since the very beginning also. Loved to hear her tales. I can understand why you wouldn't want to replace her.
