May 18, 2002 - June 28, 2008

Last night, June 27th, I went out to milk our goats and found Firefly on the ground. She wouldn't get up. We determined that it was probably hypocalcemia (milk fever). We treated as if this was the problem, drenching her with calcium and giving her Vitamin B complex shots. Nothing seemed to help at all. By 6:00AM our dear, beloved Firefly left her earthy life behind.
She will be missed tremendously.
Our children did amazingly well and even helped bury her. Kelsey Anna built a sign and they all sang a song that we often sing in Church called "Memory Eternal".
Her memory will forever live within us.

I am so sorry! Could this be due to delivering the triplets? I was sure she was going to explode before delivering them. Mt thoughts are with you and your family.
