A Member of Our Family — Gone

What we can learn about life, love and longevity from our family pets.

She was an incredible friend — the best. Always dedicated and close by. An amazing listener, hanging on my every word. She had suffered from pulmonary hypertension for years, in her senior years became blind and deaf, and struggled mighty with arthritis. As time pressed on, we spared no effort to sustain and give her an amazing life. It breaks my heart that she’s gone now. Our dog Sparkles died today.
