Cary had a kind heart and a gentle soul. He was truly one-of-a-kind. No matter how

animals was a testament to his generous and loving spirit. He spent many hours at
Stitches Animal Shelter. He will be missed by his beloved animals: dogs Sally,
Charlotte, Roscoe, Daisy and Russ, and cats, Curtis, Smokey, Maisy, Scat, Tabitha
and Lotto.
