Darlene Wagner, “broke through the veneer”

She was preceded by her father, Lee Bruyer, who contrary to her childhood belief, did not die because he was angry with her, her mother, Charlotte Wright, creator of untold numbers of wedding cakes and who only had a “little taste,” and her brother, best friend, and co-conspirator, Dana, who, she joked, quit smoking, drinking, and gambling all in one day.

Brian, 11, 'became dog legends are made of'

A lover of couches and blankets, Brian had many hobbies. Some of Brian’s favorite activities included barking at things not there, cuddling alongside you, taking over his mother’s bed, licking his butt, acting like a spazz when it was time to be fed, and trying to figure out who exactly was “the good boy.”
