Oh No! I'm so sorry Sakura! I am just now seeing this and while it is so sad that the little guy couldn't survive all the odds he had against him, he was the luckiest little boy to have spent his last few days with you! As sad as this turned out for you, I believe you were led to him so that at least he didn't have to die in such horrible conditions as most of his friends do.

At least he is now at peace. RIP little Gershwin, you touched many people in the short time you were known...

I'm sorry Sakura. :( He was a brave little boy and I'm happy he got a chance to experience a good life with you before he passed. *hugs*

Gershwin, thanks for giving me the opportunity to learn about velvet among other things before you left.

Sakura, kudos to you for your relentless energy and desire to help Gershiwn. I am sure he was grateful for your loving care all the way to the end.


My extended family:

- aka Flare-galore as he will flare at anything and everything - hope it won't get stuck!

Lazuli - aka Bouy...Yay...he is now swimming like real fish!

Captain Hook - aka Hooky cuz one of his ventral fins deforms like a hook, and looking curlier by the day.

Sinatra - aka Blue Eyed - a mustard gas delta with an inquisitive nature, oops..may be a HM.

Mocha - aka Chicken - a double ray crowntail, he is becoming a MAN now!

*sniff* Thanks everyone for the super sweet comments. I'm sure Gershwin would be so touched to know so many people cared about him. He was a lucky little guy in that way. And I'm very touched to know so many people were rooting for us. Thank you all for the sweet things you've said. You've made this easier for me to deal with. :}

So sorry for your loss. I too had my first one pass on only after a few days with me. Your Gershwin had a good few days with you.
