Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund

The pain of losing them is the price we pay for the privilege of knowing them and sharing their lives . . .

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, both those who have passed away and those who are with us.

  • Dear UPC, This Donation is on behalf of all the birds you have ever known and all the birds you will get to know. . . . Thank you for all you do. – Rita, Duckie Doo, Rockie Roo, Maggie & Sadie Lady. Our love to you all. – Rita Lemongello

  • Beth, In honor of your lovingly watching over the eagles on the island . . . although this concentrates on chickens. Birds of a feather need to flock together. Love you this holiday and always, Annie. – Anne Boguslavsky

  • My gift is for Muriel. – Anne Boguslavsky

  • Dear UPC, I’m sending my 2023 membership donation to you in honor of our beautiful and gentle tom turkey, “The Professor.” We were blessed with him for only 2 weeks, when he died suddenly from an unknown cause. He was a true “gentleman,” and we loved him. Please keep up all of your good work for the birds everywhere, and I am proud to be a part of what you do. – Barbara Moffit

  • My gift is in honor and memory of Roberta Kalechofsky, who died on April 5, 2022 at age 91. Roberta became vegan after Richard Schwartz asked her to publish his first book. “Bob and I had no idea what we could eat,” she exclaimed. They learned quickly, and she wrote a vegan book of her own, the first of several. They were always eager to pack up and table at expos and veg fests. Roberta is remembered as an outstanding animal rights advocate and a valuable friend. – Roberta Schiff, Hudson Valley Vegans

  • My donation is in remembrance of our beloved peacock, Frankincense, who died unexpectedly in our sanctuary on Saturday night, October 29th. Frankincense first visited and then chose to live permanently with our chickens and ducks, from November 2000 until the morning I found him lifeless in our Big Bird House next to a stack of straw facing the wall. He was our oldest sanctuary resident, a beautiful, vibrant bird remembered with love. – Karen Davis, UPC
