We, at All Paws, are all so sad to hear about Mrs. Boyce’s passing. She was so kind and wonderful. Every time we saw her with Mia she told us how much she loved her very special cat and she always told us sweet stories about her family. She will be missed by all of us. It was a privilege to know her.

My thoughts and prayers go to her family. Give Mia and Spike petting for us.

Paul Cecil and family. We were so sorry to hear about Ruth. We had a lot of laughs on Friday night at Pizza Works. She was so friendly and fun. She loved those grandsons.
