In Memory of James Napolean Dean

(Jacob, my nephew, & Jimmy)
This is the Carlson family dog. He passed away last night, Thursday December 4th. Just shy of his 14th birthday, which would have been on Sunday December 7th. My family loved him so much. We have such great memories of him. I know this sounds so sappy because some people think he is just a dog but, like one of my co-workers said, he was part of my childhood. I feel so bad for my parents mostly because right now their are no kids living in the house and he was the only one who didn't leave. Mom & Dad we love you and want you to know that our thoughts & prayers are with you and the rest of the Carlson Family. I just feel so helpless being so far away that I can't be there to help you through this difficult time. Jimmy will always be remembered. I am actually looking forward to Christmas when we can gather as a family for the first time since 2005 and reminisce on the most wonderful dog any family could ask for. I love you Carlson Family and can't wait to see you in about 15 days. (That's for you Ben;-)

I'm Sorry!! Animals really do hold a special place in our hearts. And they will always remain a part of our lives. Hope Christmas is a wonderful one with your family.

He was a wonderful dog! I will miss him! I don't care what anybody says..loosing a dog is like losing a family member! I need your address!

okay so you guys coming to help could seriously be a very strong possibility! You guys like kids? :) Coming over just to help play with them a bit would be amazing! I'll see how things go this weekend but definitely Monday or Tuesday we would LOVE to see you guys even if for just a short time...you really don't have to be put to work...which day would you prefer?!!! I'm excited!

Sorry to hear about your family dog. I am not much of an animal person. But I know that it is hard when you have had a pet for so long and you lose them. We are really missing you guys. We are going to try and come visit this summer.
