My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Dear Cricket,

It is another year of us walking to Dick's Market and your needing to walk around the pumpkins. This led me to telling you today, Oh Cricket this brings back so many memories. We need to get your picture in front of the pumpkins.
Twenty or twenty-one years ago we found this grocery store. We were so excited because nearby was also a new subdivision, an elementary school, a junior high, a church, and a UTA bus! For this young blind mom, this was so exciting and made our life so much easier.  It was amazing all that was in walking distance plus enjoying a wonderful neighborhood.  Such a blessing. I remember us coming to this Dick's Market and climbing over the pumpkins to get to the payphone to call on one of the homes! I know you love our house and neighborhood now - they are just right for us now.  This house near Dick's Market was just right for us then.  Thanks for helping me walk here safely today.  You are doing awesome work and never tire of hearing someone say -- oh my that is the sweetest face.  Love,  Becky

Yes, I remember when we met at the park in Bountiful and you and Steve told us about the wonderful location. It was a great place to raise the kids and there is always a very soft spot in a mother's heart for the places she knew with her little ones.

What sweet memories. It's nice that you were able to find such a convenient place to live then, so perfect! Cricket looks great in front of those big pumpkins.

Well, then I'm going to say it again, "Oh my, that's the sweetest face."

I bet Cricket loves helping you.
