Margot can't help but feel sad, even on a warm sunny day, knowing her beloved turtle Tim has died. Luckily, Margot has wonderful friends to organize a proper funeral for her pet, from balloons to flowers to a cheerful tune on the French horn. As they send Tim sailing away in a box attached to the balloons and Margot gives her final goodbye, she realizes that he’s headed to a place with warm sun and cool waters, and she doesn't feel sad anymore.
