To the Editor:
Our near and dear furry friend Sirius got his therapy dog calling from heaven April 22. There were no viable options to ease all the pain he had internally.
I want to personally thank your Press staff for taking such an interest in my passion: therapy dogs. It is my mission to continue where Sirius left off and educate the Lehigh Valley on what a therapy dog is all about.
To the Editor:
I am sure that each of us veterans have heard this greeting numerous times. I have decided to pause and recollect what it means to me when I hear it and respond. Naturally, it makes me think of my time in the service of our dear country.
