When they were young, Patricia and Joan Miller briefly appeared on a 1950s television show called the "The Hoffman Hayride" and posed for a picture with Crosby as children. The twins also entertained troops at military bases.

This undated copy of a photo provided by the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office shows twin sisters Patricia and Joan Miller. It is unknown which sister is which. Authorities are asking for help finding the next of kin for the two 73-year-old twin sisters found dead together in their South Lake Tahoe, Calif., home. El Dorado County Sheriff's officials say they've ruled out foul play in the deaths the women, who appear to have died within a short time frame and were found February 26, 2012.

Their shared life ended in a mysterious double-death. One body was in a downstairs bedroom, and the other was in the hallway just outside. They were 73. It was as if the two sisters, longing each other's only companion, could not live without each other.
