Lost: Their last goodbyes


Anjana Melvin

We lose things every day: glasses, keys, homework, money. As time goes by, we lose old friends and memories. We lose possessions. We lose relationships. But nothing quite tugs on the heartstrings like the loss of a pet— our constant companions, our very best friends. While some students had time to say their last goodbyes, others could only hold on to a final, lingering memory.
