  • I’m so sorry for the loss of your father…… I remember when I moved next door in 2007 and mr yetter was the 1st to greet me. I instantly loved him! His heart would glow very vividly… I’m not sure how many times he bought Zeus (my dog) back into the back yard for me. Mr yetter knew I was dealing with an escape artist! Hahaha.
