A Memorial Letter to Chalet, A White Tiger

May 28, 2008 – September 21, 2018

Dear Chalet,

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being with us. You demonstrated how great God’s kingdom is on earth in nature.

You thrilled thousands with your athleticism in Tiger Splash® as you seemed to defy gravity. Who can forget your aeronautical ascensions into the sky, then to come crashing into the water with success firmly seized between your canines? Your wild, yet controlled way, showed us how to unite us with animals so that we can be as one.

Chalet, you have honored and amazed us with the royalty of your presence. Your zest to live life to the fullest and deepest at the moment without fear propels us to follow your lead so we too can be like you. You have indeed brought Heaven to earth. Your power and purity remain affixed in our hearts forever.

Now you have returned to receive your great reward. We miss you, especially Kumba, your best friend. We remember you fondly with much love. When it is time, we will unite again in God’s purpose. You now grace Heaven as you did on earth.

All of us
