    Goodbye Fred. Goodbye childhood

    My poor baby is dead.
    Because of medical problems, I can only remember the past 13 years.... and for those 13 years, I had Fred.
    Fred was an eccentric blue keet.
    He slept on the floor, courted chair legs, and talked to the chandelier. He'd do anything for his plastic green bird friend, even though he beat the hell out of it. He loved destroying card houses but he hated the sun.
    And he was spoiled silly. Above my brother and I, even my dad, my mom gave him the most attention. She'd talk to him through the answering machine when on vacation. He got everything.
    He was our mascot, his image on the back of every homemade card we made as kids.
    And that little bird didn't want to die. He cheated death three times, but eventually his sickness took him, struggling to live to the end in my mother's hand at the vet's office.
    Even the vet cried.
    Our baby is gone.
    I can't even grasp it.

    Goodbye, Freddie

    I am so sorry to hear about Freddie. What a beautiful eulogy for him. I can tell he was a very wonderful part of your life and I'm sure he knew he was loved very much.
