We'll be seeing it again some day, not to worry, but it might be a long wait...

... perchance to dream.... Sleep well my sweet Spirit.

My right hand side is with Doug and I salute all those who crafted this fantastic adventure, but with my left I wave a fond farewell to our girl.

Thank you to all the wonderful people at JPL who made this mission possible and to all the great folks on this board who walked with Spirit every step of the way.

Farewell little robot. You brought anxiety, joy and wonder. But never did we expect to grow this old with you.

Curiosity must be thinking "Great. How am I suppose to follow an act like that?"
Goodbye little brother.

I have been absent for so long, mainly due to sparse free time, but I had to come back to say goodbye to my old pal, Spirit.
We had such wonderful time together, climbing hills and observing abysses, I 'll miss you friend.

It may take several hundred years, but I am sure some time a human hand will tap your panels and say thanks from all of us. Farewell.

Best not ponder the fact that Spirit seemed to be within a week or two of wriggling her way out of that Scamander sandtrap. In the end it was not to be.
The torch is passed; within a year or so we should have some new company for Opportunity out there on that lonely red planet.
