Goodbye, Chuck !!

2007-2009

Today, Chuck passed away. He had been battling popeye for about a week, and gasping. I think it might have been tuberculosis. He just gave out. Poor guy. I was a bad mom. I will be bringing him home to bury under a tree. Photos will be posted later (closed casket).

I will miss seeing his black face every morning. He really connected with a lot of people at NNN. I only told a few people today, but so many more expressed their condolences and their grief when word got out. Chuck touched many people.

In honor of Chuck, I have set my Outlook to say "Chuck" whenever I get email.

I miss you already, sweetie!!

UPDATE...

Here are two of Chuck's last photos taken less than a month ago:

This evening, we had a small burial ceremony in the back porch. I did the burying. Mr. Nonny Nu looked on. Chuck was a good kid. We hope you like your final resting place, boy.

Goodnight, Chuck.

Chuck was wise--it said so on his resume.

You will be remembered, Chucky Baby.

I can see that Chuck was a courageous fish. I don't think I can make it for 3 days in a small glass bowl, let alone 3 yrs. His perseverance is something that we all should follow. Even though I never see him in person, but I have heard about how his master loved him so. Good Bye Chuck the swimmer!
NNN is he considered my nephew since he was like one of you and Mr. NNN's kid???......

Yes, he is like your nephew, Wah Toh. You see, I have a family of four now--me, Mr. NN, Kash, and Skillet. So, when you send only one bag of silver fish, you should really be sending four.

NN & Mr. NN:

Sorry for your loss. I'll miss having Chuck around. I'm a little sad that he won't have the opportunity to blossom into a beautiful Leucocoprinus birnbaumii in EPA.

Sorry NNN, when I send a package, you are supposed to share with all my nieces and nephews. I can try to send a bigger pack next time but then they don't know how to appreciate the delicacy of my home made creation... on the 2nd thought, I will be sending a smaller bag. ha ha

Otherwise I am calling the animal abuse or should I say children social services... I will consult this to WAH TOH.....
