An obit for Harry, the swan


To the Editor:

Harry III lived on Warwick Pond. He was preceded by Harry I, who went missing nine years ago and has never been seen again. Two years ago, Harry II was found dead floating in Warwick Pond. Now Harry III was destroyed by DEM.

Harry III is survived by Sally, his mate, and two signets. You would look out your back window and you would see Harry III with Sally and the signets in tow gliding to your backyard looking for food. Harry III would have his head raised majestically, regally and proudly, as if saying, “I want you to meet my family.”

We will dearly miss you, Harry.

Not everyone loves them as you do Philip. You may wish to seek counseling for your loss.
