Awww Beanie, I'm so very sorry. What a sweet, happy looking fella he was. It is indeed nice that his big brother was with him. RIP Happy.
But I just can't do it. Because I guess somehow that makes it all the more final and I don't want it to be.
You shouldn't. It should not be made into something final because there is always a little gray area between life and death, I think. He will be here in your memories and in your heart even if he's not physically here. That's why I find it hard to get rid of my avatar with my Lyric in it. He is never completely gone and neither will Happy be.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
