On December 26, 2008 Bailey died quite unexpectedly. At only 7 years old she had an afternoon/evening with a bloated and somewhat engorged (very firm, like a basketball) stomach, some disorientation, some stumbling and panting, and then she just plopped down on a linoleum floor for a couple more normal breaths and that was it. We will (and do tremendously already) miss her in our lives and we miss the tremendous love she had for the other 4 members of our family.

Oh yeah, this is a picture of when we were all in the UW-Marching Band (from the 1999 season I believe).
Best band in the land! It ain't marching if you aren't high steppin'!!
