I adopted Amanda and her sister Emily from a shelter in March of '99. They looked almost like twins, so hard to tell them apart until I figured out what to look for. Emily was the more playful one and passed in August of 2011 of kidney failure. Amanda and I had another 3 years together. She was the quieter one; so loving, always near me, and always slept with me. Cancer overtook her and her last days were spent on my bed where she was always felt comfortable and at home. It took me a long time before I could sleep in bed again. I really miss my girls and think of them every day. It's always a very hard day when the day comes around that they passed over the Rainbow Bridge. I hope I get to see them again one day.
