I thought that this could be a tribute thread for Jetjack74's pet rock.
I'm sure, as he has grieved and come to terms with his loss, that many more peaceful memories have surfaced of his beloved pet rock. I offer this thread as a place for you, Jetjack74, to share those memories with us.
I don't think I'm alone in saying that I grieved with you. We've all had pet rocks that we've lost. No more do we sing "Rockabye, Baby."
My Pet Rock Died Yesterday (by Jetjack74 Jun 14 2005 in Non Aviation)
Sitting in my hand we would cuddle together
His weight, I might add was not that of a feather
He would sit so still and not make a sound
Sitting in my hand, so heavy and so round
When I think of my loss, I begin to tremble
How much I miss my sweet little pebble
His absence I will grieve as I wander and roam
My precious, my sweet, my gentle little stone
But onward I shall press in this world of change
Always remembering from whence he came
Back to the bottom of the lake he has gone
My precious, my sweet, my gentle little stone.
