A loss of a dear friend

We had a very sad event happen late yesterday. The Cisco Kid found his Gold fish of four years floating in the tank. The boy's heart is broken. He has watched his gigantic goldfish grow from one inch to five inches and he gradually went from a bright gold to solid white. This is the first pet he lost and he is devastated. We gave Goldie a little box and made him a cross for his grave. The Cisco Kid wrote some heartfelt words on the cross. We put the cross in front of Goldie’s grave when we buried him in the yard.

The Cisco Kids departing words are I love you Goldie and you are my best friend.  
The Chief is digging a hole for Goldie.
I asked the Cisco Kid if he wanted to put the box in the ground or if he wanted Daddy to do it, and he said he wanted to put Goldie in his new home to rest.  Then he broke out in tears again.

  1. My heart goes out to CK. This is not easy. RIP Goldie!

  2. AWW. I always feel so sad for kids when they lose their pets. I'm sure he will miss Goldie for quite a while.

  3. Awwwwww! Poor Cisco Kid! :( That is not an easy thing to have to go through, especially for the first time. Tell TCK he was a good friend to Goldie and we are sorry to hear his passing. TCK's tribute words and cross he made are very touching. We are thinking of you CK, chin up!
