4 very sad family members
3 minutes of goodbyes
2 tearful meltdowns
1 dead fish named Shiny
This evening we said goodbye to a close friend and faithful pet.
Shiny became a member of our family on January 9th 2010. Although his time in our home was short, the love and laughter that he brought was tremendous. He is survived by his owner, Treven Bassett. Shiny was Treven's first pet. Treven loved Shiny the way only a true friend could love. Shiny was fed morning and night and water cleaned often. Treven was VERY (surprisingly) responsible and took excellent care of him. We know that Shiny is in a better place. Perhaps a place where fish swim free in water clean of pollutants. A place where temperatures are that of perfect for a gold fish. Perhaps in a place where Papa can meet and love him. Thank you Shiny for 10 days of pure bliss. Thank you for showing us what unconditional love is, even if you were only a fish. Rest in peace dear friend. And here's to a life in a better place.
