“This letter is a long time in the writing.  I have been thinking and thinking how to thank each one of you for saving Mocha’s life.  You are so caring!  Thank you also for letting me visit and love Mocha while she was so sick.  This is not enough to convey how I feel but it is the best I can do.   I really appreciate each one of you.

With love,”
