Tim Adams, 52, of West Mifflin, gives a kiss to Champ, his sister's greyhound, as his sister Ann Adams, 46, of West Mifflin and his dog Marcella look on in front of the Celebration of Life Wall at Family Hospice and Palliative Care in Mount Lebanon on Friday. The brother and sister have memorialized their father by donating $1000 to have his name written on the Family Hospice and Palliative Care's Celebration of Life Wall. Their father, Bob 'Scrummy' Adams, stayed at the facility in October of last year and loved being visited by their dogs. The Hospice is accepting donations and submissions to the wall for anyone who would like to be memorialized, not restricted to people with connections to the care center.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
