I'll admit I didn't treat him the best of these past few years, but he was always faithful and never gave me a complaint. I've accidently injured him on a number of occasions, from small nicks and bruises to the one time I nearly killed him. It was amazing that he lived through that, as it was just a mere accident on my part. He nearly sacrificed himself to save me, and for that, I'm truly thankful.
His dedication is only surpassed by a rare few, and so I guess that's why I was reluctant to let him go. You will truly be missed my friend
