As my sister, Ashlee, always says, "Sad day". Our beloved fish, Nemo, died yesterday. We have had that little guy since Hunter's third birthday! Our whole family was terribly upset. I suspect others who knew Nemo will be upset, too, when they hear the news.
I could tell something was up - he hadn't been swimming around that much, or eating a lot. But I didn't think he was sick! I definitely wasn't prepared for how sad we'd all feel! Hunter and I shed more than a few tears, and even Coop understood what was going on. Dave (Nemo's primary food-giver and tank cleaner-outer) felt sad, too.
Hunter and I have a date on Friday to go to the pet store and get a new fish. Hopefully our new one will be as great and fun as Nemo was.
R.I.P Nemo, WE LOVE YOU!
