"I've discovered that my own little postage stamp of native soil was worth writing about and that I would never live long enough to exhaust it."

I'd like to take a moment to remember the life of Mr. Monkey. He entered our lives an enthusiastic entertainer and was always more than willing to go along for any ride. The days he spent with us were quiet, but he was ready with a squeak whenever the mood needed to be lightened. He flew through the air with the greatest of ease, and his companionship quickly became an object of obsession for those who loved him most.

Though his death was untimely and gruesome, it is helpful to look back on the hours of joy he brought to our lives.

Mr. Monkey

"To know him was to love him."
