2004: It is the end of an era for us, as we say farewell to the other half of our special duo.
Sparkie and Hannah were inseparable, joined
at the hips. Sparkle appeared lost since the recent passing of her sister, and it seemed that she could not live without her. She stopped eating
and quickly faded away.
Hannah were such a large part of our lives, being at our sides every day
for almost sixteen years. We were very fortunate but feel very sad
to lose them. Sparkle will
be most remembered for her sunny disposition and total devotion, and
Hannah for her cuteness and talent. They were our best friends and
will be in our hearts forever.
January 25, 1989 - September 27, 2004
