Betta Memorial Help ?

Didnt know exactly what category this should go under but for those of you who didnt know I got two fish that were abused Hopeless and Worthless, two males that lived together with goldfish. Hopeless slowley became better then all of a sudden just stopped the will to live and died. Hopeless also went by the names Hopefull and just Hope. Worthless is still alive and thriving. But I wanted to memorialize Hope, he made such an impression on me, I wanted to get a little rock or something and write on it something like
"Hope: something that all creatures have, may he bring it to all those who are lost and abused, with what looks like no way out. Hope will always be here."
Not sure on the words but I'd like a little help if you got any better ideas :)
For those of you who never saw him

I think thats a wonderful idea!
I think that quote sounds wonderful, but I would change ONE thing. Instead of "all those who are lost and abused, with what looks like no way out."
to "all those who are lost and abused, in times where it looks like there is no way out".
The quote's message is beautiful, and memorilazing (I think thats the word) him is a wonderful idea.
If you were willing to spend a little cash, you could probably get a picture frame engraved with his name and the quote, and then you could put a picture of him in it.

Edit: Thought I already wrote this but I guess I hadn't:

I'm sorry for your loss about Hope. He sounded like a very good, inspirational fish. He was beautiful. Feel proud that you were able to rescue him.

I think it's a wonderful idea, too. You'll have to take a pic of the rock when it's done.

The quote is just beautiful and inspirational. This is a brilliant idea and when Ahto passes I might just do the same thing if that's alright with you. I'm sorry that your fish died. It's horrible when it's time for them to go...
