Feb 10th , our dear family friend Jeanette SAMs passed away in her sleep at nap time, in her home in Deland FL. She was very independent and still walked the mall 2-3 times per week. An awesome lady, friend and great vet. Feb 10th, 2018. She will be at her final resting place in Hillsboro, Ohio. The Ross family
