I really have nothing much to say... much to the irony that Jade lived a very long and full life.
There are many stories to be shared,
many personality traits that set him apart from anyone I've ever had.
(He even ate a spider that dared skim the surface of his water.)
After a trip out of town, and the caretaker unable to diagnose him (since he never even knew he was in the tank),
Jade succumbed to a bad fungal and parasitic infection that proved too great by the time I made it back home and treated him.
I found him sleeping in his usual spot by his jade rock,
but sleeping in the eternal sense.
