Sheri is responsible for the unconditional love.

ÒMr. PunishmentÓ refers to a person who punishes or penalizes a person (or dog)

The decorative abilities. :: Exactly, the heart

and the soul, which is what my mother did.

ÒDecorativeÓ is a rare adjective that refers to decorating, or the presentation of a house. A personÕs ÒsoulÓ is the non-physical part of them that is supposed to live on after they die.

You can call it a little superstition on my part, but I

always like to put up the official curtain, so to speak.
