3 fish funeral

Squishy

The 3 fish laid to rest in our backyard today.


Two of our teenage girls went bucket fishing last night and came back with 4 fish that they wanted to keep as pets.  They kept them in a bucket in the garage overnight.

Only 1 fish lasted the night.

The girls wanted to give the 3 fishies a proper burial.

A casket was found.

Burial linens made.

A floral bouquet crafted.

A hole dug.

Maria gave the eulogy that was both touching (and hilarious) at the same time.  Goodbyes were made and the fish were lowered into the grave.
The Doxology was sung, along with Amazing Grace to close out the ceremony.

I am not sure what possessed these two girls to go to such length for a few fish they owned for less than 12 hours.  But, it kept them occupied for a greater part of the afternoon.

And I think it's certainly a memory that will not soon fade.

I think.

RIP Squishy, Nemo, and Dory.

  1. This is a cute story. :)
    We had a bunny die in our neighborhood and my kids received an adorable funeral invitation. Among other hysterical lines, it ended with 'carrots will be served with a side of ranch'. :)
