Cosmo Chief Kanipe

January 1, 2009 — June 3, 2023

Cosmo Chief Kanipe, known fondly as Momo, passed away peacefully on June 3, 2023, at his home in Cayce, South Carolina. Born on January 1, 2009, in Columbia, South Carolina, Cosmo lived a life filled with love, laughter, and the joyous company of his beloved family and friends.

A true gentle soul, Cosmo spent his days studying the people he encountered throughout his amazing life. His patience and love for all he ever met were unmatched, as he embraced every opportunity to share his warmth with those around him. Like the wise bard himself, Shakespeare, Cosmo's life was a tapestry of rich and royal hues, reflecting the depth of his character and the beauty of his spirit.

Cosmo's family was the center of his universe, and he leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion. He is survived by his Daddy Ralph and Mama Marlo, his brother Luckydog, sister Coco, and his late sister Mickey. His human sister Alana, her husband Paul, and their children Jonah and Caleb will forever cherish the memories of their time with Cosmo. His extended family, including Uncles Stevie, Kenny, and Keith, Aunts Tracy, Linda, and Ruthie, cousin Max, late cousin Levi, human cousin Lisi, and his adoring grandparents, Papa Steve and Bunbun, and Granny Pat, will hold him dear in their hearts for all eternity.

In his leisure, Cosmo found great pleasure in the simple joys of life. He loved to eat and sleep, relishing the comfort and contentment that came from a full belly and a warm bed. Cosmo's favorite pastimes included watching television, listening to music, and expressing himself through barking and howling. His gentle, friendly nature endeared him to all who knew him, and his presence brought light and love to every gathering.

Cosmo's bond with his Daddy Ralph was a testament to the power of love and loyalty. They were inseparable companions, sharing countless hours of laughter and joy as they navigated the twists and turns of life's journey together. The love they shared was a beacon of hope and inspiration, a reminder that even in the darkest of times, the light of friendship and devotion can pierce the shadows and illuminate the path forward.

As the great poet Emily Dickinson once wrote, "Unable are the Loved to die / For Love is Immortality." Cosmo's love will live on in the hearts of all who knew him, a gentle reminder of the power of compassion and the beauty of a life well-lived. His memory will continue to inspire and uplift those who were fortunate enough to have shared in his journey, a testament to the indelible mark he left on the world.

In the words of Shakespeare, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts." Cosmo's role on this earthly stage was that of a loving friend, devoted family member, and gentle spirit. His exit from the stage may have come, but his memory will live on in the hearts and minds of all who were privileged to know him.

Farewell, sweet Momo, and may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest. Your love and gentle spirit will remain with us always, a beacon of light to guide us through the storms of life. Rest in peace, dear boy, and know that you are forever loved and cherished.
