Here lies squirrel

One afternoon we noticed a squirrel who had been recently run over in front of our house. Although my boys will shoot any living thing for the thrill of the kill, they were distraught over this poor dead animal. He must have just been struck because he was in great condition with his little paws in the perfect prayer position. The boys and Emma decided that he needed a proper burial and service. This is what they came up with:

It reads, "Here lies squirelly. He was praying."

By the way, his coffin is a Ralph Lauren shoe box. Only the best for animals who are buried on our property.:)
