Farewell our dear "Lady"

Our dearly departed Lady...


For several months now, Lady has just not been content. We bought her new shells to try out and she did not like them, she would scurry around discontentedly, and a few times come out of her shell completely - which I know is a sign of distress (oh the wonderful world wide web). About 5 days ago she burrowed down as far as she could in the sand. A couple days later she was upside down and not moving. She passed on...

Paul wanted to get rid of her, but I told him we needed to let Ethan see and explain to him, instead of her just disappearing...like the fish!

About a day later, Ethan was looking at them and said, "Mommy Capt'n Jack cutted Lady!" What was a peaceful passing scene, now looks like a crime scene. Ethan informed me we had to get another one; I'm sure we will and more fish for the fish tank.

LONG LIVE CAPT'N JACK!!!
