The Loss of a Friend

Sometimes images speak where words fail.


We cannot begin to express the depth of our caring for both Sparkle and her human. For more than a decade, Sparkle brought wit, compassion and wisdom to readers, and was instrumental in the rescue and rehoming of countless animals in need.

We join with many others today, reaching out to a friend, honoring her work and her talents, and sharing her sorrow at her loss.

Janiss, Sparkle will always live on, in our memories. Our hearts.
