After fourteen years, six months, and five days of unconditional love, companionship, support, and pure joy, my sweet baby dog Jordan lost his battle with cancer and peacefully returned to God in Heaven on October 20, 2010. Jordan has been the most beautiful blessing of my life, and my love for him will endure forever. I hereby dedicate my year as Mrs. Tennessee International to Jordan. Thank you to everyone who loves him and me and for praying for us and sending me such kind words of support of encouragement. I am so lucky to have so many compassionate and caring people in my life. God Bless and take care of Jordan Porter Riley until I see him again.
