So Much I Should Say

Honestly, I guess at this point there is a little part of me that just really can't believe he didn't live forever.   He was a helluva sheep.  It was an honor.

Sara, I'm so sorry. I was thinking of what Jester was and the words I came up with were kind and polite. Whenever I gave him a cookie he was such a gentleman and always seemed to say thank you. He will be remembered and missed.

Oh, I'm so sorry about Jester. Having recently lost an oldie myself, I know how tough it is. It was wonderful that, in his final months, you and Biscuit had all of those special moments together with him. He looked like he was very much a gent.

Sending hugs. <3

Hard having to say good bye to the old timers. I always liked his look. So sorry he has gone. They just don't live long enough!

Sara, so sad. It did seem as though he would live FOREVER. Well...he almost did. I so love how you nurture them all for their entire lives.

He stayed long enough to help Biscuit move outdoors. That'll do, Uncle Jester.

Sending much sympathy.

I'm so glad I got to meet Jester in person. He was such a dignified sheep. He had a wonderful life with you and will be missed greatly. He left mighty big hoofprints in the flock and in your life.
