During those long months and years after losing my youngest son I spent a lot of time alone; it was necessary, if lonely. Little Annie Belle came to me as a rescue dog; my daughter-in-law recovered on a highway in Ocala. We were inseparable for years as she became my very best and sometimes only friend in sight. Annie died nearly 12 years later but certainly she was there for all of my earlier writing. RIP Baby Annie.
