    Twenty months ago we were welcomed to our new home in Waupun by a tall, elderly very friendly, sincere neighbor. we continued to enjoy back yard visits. Zooey our terrier, a very astute judge of character, fell in love with Orvel immediately. Because of Orvel’s and my health and hospitalizations we weren’t able to deepen our friendship as both desired. Orvel was so genuine, sincere and caring that we would have had such a cherished friendship. such was not to be but we have the twenty months to remember.
    Dr. Bob Heinen and Mary Lou and Zooey.
