if your lazy:
"It is heartbreaking to have to report to our family that the orphaned baby dolphin, Rocketman, passed away on July 1. The week before his death we discovered that Rocketman had an infection. Sadly, the antibiotics and all of our loving care were not enough to save this little fighter's life. Initial necropsy results indicated a massive infection, probably pneumonia, as the cause of his death. If there can be any good news at a time like this, it is that we discovered that Rocketman was thriving on the special formula that Harbor Branch and DRC crews fed him. He had a great blubber and muscle layer, and was developing normally. Why did he succumb to the infection? Possibly he was immuno-compromised, like little Havana last year, and was missing some of those important antibodies that only mother's milk can provide. We do know that the lessons this little boy taught us, and the love he brought us, will never be forgotten. Thank you little Rocket. Although you were only in our lives a short time, you left a blaze of bright love and memories in our hearts forever."

Poor Rocketman!
