Ode to Sharky
I am sorry you passed away last night. It was sudden and unexpected, and we are sorry to see you go. We enjoyed watching you swim, and eat. You weren't exciting or flashy, but you did your thing. Even if your thing wasn't exciting, you were consistent.
Thank you for not leaving dirty socks all over the house, or leaving the toilet seat up. Thanks for being patient when we would forget to feed you, overfeed you or tap on the fish tank. Thanks for putting up with all of the screaming that takes place in our house. Most importantly, thanks for being Drew and Jacob's first pet. Rest in Peace in the giant Fish bowl in the sky.
Your family, The Bees
PS We are totally going to pass off another fish as you, but know that if Drew knew you kicked the bucket, he would be sad and miss you. Maybe we will approach that idea when the new friend in our family, Sharky V. 2.0, kicks it.... in about 5 months.
PSS You truly are one of a kind.... so much so that Drew questioned whether Sharky V. 2.0 was really Sharky, or if we picked up the wrong fish from "the Doctor". So you were special, and unforgettable!
