He went so quickly. Teilo was eating and flaring and he showed an incredible will to live despite his emaciation. But today kept sinking to the bottom, not moving, falling over on his side, barely breathing and then he would shoot up to the surface as alive as anything, but then he would just sink back down. I just happened to look over now and tapped the top of his tank to feed him . . . but this time he didn't come up to the surface.
I want you to know, Teilo, that it's okay to go. It's okay. I'm sorry you couldn't be here longer. At least for awhile, you were in warm water, had delicious food, and there was someone in this world who loved you ... Swim in warm waters buddy ... until we meet again.
