Our floor got four goldfish & they all died the night we got them, so we had a funeral. We dressed in black, played Johnny Cash’s Amazing Grace *singing along*, and one of the guys gave a eulogy. We even rallied others to join as they walked by. One guy even removed his hat during Amazing Grace. We buried the fish in individual holes and made headstones.
