Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund

We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following beloved family members and friends:

Please accept this donation in honor of International Respect for Chickens Day/Month of May on behalf of Richard Yacowitz, DVM, in Memory of Baron Von Drehoppin & Baroness Shagundella, two wonderful & beloved chickens. Baron was a huge white roosters with feathers on his feet & the Baroness was his (all fuzzy-ball) wife. When they met, it was love at first sight. He did this little dance for her, talking all the while, brought her offerings of food & then they made love with wild abandon! Would that all chickens lived as cherished and happily as they did. – Suzanne Dragan

In memory of Bella, a young rescued turkey who was lovingly cared for during her all-too-short life, by Sarah Kindrick. I was privileged to meet Bella and am glad she experienced some happiness in her life with Sarah, before passing away. – Margaret Kenan Carpenter

Please accept this donation in memory of my grandchicken, 2blindy (whom we lovingly called Boo), who lived with my daughter Carrie Thompson until a few weeks ago. Five years ago, a blind, ill, helpless and near death young hen entered Carrie’s life. With love, learning, trial and error, both girls grew to know each other. Boo began to recover, then to thrive and trust, and then to sing. She purred and cooed her love song. Boo has passed on, but she lives forever in our hearts. – Nancy Thompson

Dear UPC, I remember the first time I called you to ask what I should do with the little hen I found left in a cardboard box to die. You encouraged me to keep her rather than give her to another home. I am so grateful that I kept this sweet and brave hen whom I named 2blindy and affectionately nicknamed “Boo.” She passed away on April 7, 2012 after making it through surgery. She spoke one word when she woke up, and then she left. Although blind, she was not incapacitated. She learned to follow me and would wait silently, cocking her head to listen. She learned the meaning of “careful.” She lived to be just over 5 years old. I am making this donation in her name. – Carrie Thompson

My donation is given in honor of the birthday of my beloved sister, Ronnie Steinau. – Marcia Kudlow

In honor of Nero, Fredericka, Julie, Nathaniel, Leonard, and Bertha, remembered forever and sadly missed. – Paul Deane

My gift is in honor of All God’s Creatures. – Brien Comerford
