Ch. Shomberg's Wrapped In Sable
  Monroe
"Of all the awards garnered and records achieved,
the most wonderful title of all was that of "mother."
For all that she gave and for all of the wonderful qualities
she placed in them for us -- we will love her, honor her and cherish every day of the life we were blessed to have with her. It was far too short."
