You don't know what you've got until it's gone....

altEstrogen (1974-2012)

Estrogen left its noble service to the body in February of 2012, despite a courageous battle with the pituitary gland.

Estrogen made her first appearance in Illinois in 1974, during a volleyball game in gym class.

She is survived by her mothers, the left and right ovaries.

Estrogen loved and was appreciated by every organ and system of the body. “She made a real difference in our lives,” said the vagina, on behalf of other parts.

“You really never know what you have until it’s gone,”agreed the breasts.

Despite several attempts, the libido could not be reached for comment.

A simple, private interment was planned, but the body’s close family and friends were forced to attend a rather lengthy, drawn-out memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Group Health, memo: co-payments, psychotherapy.

“Alas, no longer is she

‘Cool as syringa buds in morning hours,
Or firm and silken as young peony flowers.’

- from Baby Running Barefoot, by D.H. Lawrence”
