    What a lesson you taught me in what it means to be grateful and appreciative for the “little things in life”. You were a loving human-being with a great spirit. I will always remember you fondly. Oh, and yes I can still hear you say….”Mar-gee” thanks you.

    What a sweet and giving person who will be missed! I know its a cliche, but Mrs. Tuttle would truly give you the shirt off her back even if it was the last shirt she had. I have never met anyone who loved an animal more than Mrs. Tuttle. I know she was greeted by Mr. Tuttle with Sheeba, Biggie, and Teddy (just the ones I remember) and the many cats that she cared for not far behind. I will not forget you Mrs. Tuttle!!
