    This week I've noticed several posts about members loosing shelled family members. I don’t know about you guys, but I mourn for every last one, from the youngest hatchlings to the very old torts who have been with their owners for decades. Although I have not met most of these little torts or their owners in person, I cry almost every time I hear about one of them passing. Searching the forum, I could not find a group In Memoriam thread, so this is a thread to remember all our shelled friends who have been lost. This is a thread to post pics and memories of the shelled loved ones who have passed, offer support to their owners, and never forget how much our lives have been enriched by these beautiful creatures.

    Here are some of torts that have been lost recently -

    • Craig’s (@Anyfoot) beautiful homeana adult and redfoot hatchling

    • @Sweet0dodo’s tortoise

    • Maggie’s (@maggie3fan) Bob the Sulcata


    :tort: Rest in Peace. :tort:

    These loved ones are missed terribly. David has a poem about the rainbow bridge. I hope he posts it here.
