RIP, Valentine

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of 'red fish'. Sometime, between breakfast and today's Halloween buffet our beloved red fish (also affectionately known as Valentine) sunk to the bottom of his fish tank. Red fish leaves behind one sibling, his brother, blue fish.

Red fish will be sincerely missed. Valentine had been with us longer than most employees. Several years ago both red and blue were left behind by a colleague who was moving out of state. Since that time red and blue fish have been tenderly cared for by J-. J- helped Valentine valiantly fight several illnesses, including a year ago when he was nursed back to health by the magic power of cooked peas. Our sincere thanks go to google who provided the resources that lead to the discovery of the medicinal quality of peas.

A funeral service was held today at the edge of the back parking lot. It was an intimate gathering of close friends. After sharing memories, red fish was given a final send off with a green and purple 'silly string' salute.

Special thanks to A.F. for providing photographic services.

Silly String Salute!
