So many memories I have in my heart. We did rescue together for 18 years. Deanna loved all living things; nature, animals, wildlife. Will miss our two hour nightly talks on the phone. The last time we got together to exchange books(loved to read), she had a dog mug for me and I had a cat mug for her..total surprise for both and we laughed and laughed. We said we were soul sisters. RIP my friend. God loves you.
