It is with much regret that I inform you of the passing of Freddy. Freddy was a great friend, wonderful son, fun brother, and hard worker. We welcomed him into our house with love. It was as if he was always a part of our family. However, after only a few short months he woke up this morning not feeling well, and a short time later was found dead in his room. There was no struggle, no dramatic goodbyes, only a sadness that this was the end.
Freddy is survived by his brothers’ Crazy and Bobby, and his adopted Daddy P. He was a hard worker; worked tirelessly every day and never complained. He seemed to find joy in what one might call menial tasks. His unassuming, quiet nature kept him from ever seeking the limelight. One might even forget he was there. Yet, with his passing a little boy was saddened beyond words. After the tears subsided, he simply said, ” I just wish he was alive.”
We should all be so lucky in life, however short, to enjoy our work whatever it might be, be the best we can, and to be loved, even by one small soul.
Goodnight and goodbye to Freddy the Fish.
