Lonesome George
by Rich Aguilera

Unfortunately, the extinction of species on our planet is a common occurrence.  Sadly, a few days ago on June 24, 2012, a giant Pinta Island tortoise named "Lonesome George" died.  He was believed to be the last remaining individual of the subspecies called Chelonoidis nigra abingdoni.

He was believed to be over 100 years old, quite the senior citizen among tortoises.

Death is the consequence of sin.  I'm so glad that we have the hope of seeing our loved ones in heaven again someday!

Oh, by the way, here's a picture of Lonesome George.
