Ode to Rosco

Sadly, at approximately 7pm last night a member of our family passed on. Rosco was a very loyal, sweet, and caring pet to us. Rosco was a happy beta fish that my brother Jeramy gave to us after he killed our other beta, Oscar while we were on vacation. Rosco lived a quite life of peace, and never complained about anything; like the time we left him on my brother Blaine's porch in January for 2 hours and he almost froze, or the time his fish bowl got so dirty that I couldn't find him and I had to swoosh around the water to see if he was still alive. And he never said a mean thing about all the people who would come over and vigorously tap and bang on his bowl, awakening him from a peaceful nap or a nice leisurely swim. No, not once did he ever complain or cause any trouble to any member of the family. After discovering Rosco floating upside down at the bottom of his bowl last night, Jonathan proceeded to give him a funeral service worthy of any deceased fish; he returned him to the sea by way of pipe. Rosco, you will be greatly missed my friend!

"God be with you til we meet again...." Rest in Peace Rosco.
