Maximus Decimus Meridus
I am so fortunate to have had you in my life. You had such a big personality, and were full of attitude. You knew exactly what you wanted and achieved it most of the time. Yet you were very affectionate, loving to snuggle with your brother, Quintus, and cuddling with me when you got older. You were confident, clever, funny, and exasperating; you never lost your drive for life, even when health issues made things so difficult for you. I will never forget you: my mouse, my gerbil, my love.
