I've always have loved lion since I was five years old. It started with my father winning a large pink lion at the county fair,who I named Sammy. Sammy went everywhere with me. When I was upset I would seek comfort in my pink lion. He's never far from my mind and I always wonder what happened too him. I thought I'd find him in my parents storage when we cleaned out the house to sell, but he was no where to be found.
