A beard that is no longer with us is thankfully getting all the fame it deserved.

Ben Garvin, a photojournalist with the St. Paul Pioneer Press, decided to shave off his truly epic beard. But fortunately for the Internet, he decided to do so in equally epic fashion.

Some crayons, some vegetables, and a little stop-motion magic later, and what could have been a somber beard funeral became a delightful celebration of a beard's life and all the things it was capable of doing.

We will truly miss your beard, Ben. But thank you for letting us enjoy its final moments, and thank you to Reddit user Synssins for sharing it.
