    I'm devastated. Buttercup is gone. She was my big fat BR, everybody's favorite. [​IMG]

    Lament for Buttercup
    Buttercup, O Buttercup, where is your rosy face?
    The softly cooing voice that calms,
    The walk that whispers, "Grace?"
    Buttercup, O Buttercup, come back to me I pray!
    I've had a bower built for you,
    That you may come and play.
    Buttercup, O Buttercup, I wish you were not gone.
    But you are in a better place,
    Beloved of my own.

    ~Lothiriel, on the disappearance of Buttercup

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that Buttercup is still alive and makes it home to you. [​IMG]

    I am so sorry for your devastating loss. Your tribute to her is eloquent, and I know that writing it and sharing it brings a small measure of closure and comfort.
