Remembering Friends

Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund

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

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:

  • In memory of Beaker, my best friend and precious companion. She was a gorgeous Rhode Island Red hen with a tremendous spirit and zest for life. She was the most interesting, curious, and intelligent creature I ever met. Although I know she is in a glorious place, I can't imagine life without her. I love you, Beaker. – Lynn Terzich
  • In memory of Tootsie, a female budgie I had for 3 years. Someone found her flying around outside and was lucky enough to catch her. She was very independent and had a mind of her own and a definite attitude. She died in June of 2003, and I still miss her. – Johanna Armstrong
  • In memory of my beloved mother, Elena Flanagan – a staunch advocate for animals who was honored by the Animal Rights National Convention in 2004 for her unstinting decades of service to this cause. – Myriam Parham
  • In memory of my mother, the poet and journalist Ann Cottrell Free. In the late 1950s, Ann found her true passion – exposing inhumane treatment of animals. Her work earned her many awards, including the Animal Welfare Institute's Albert Schweitzer Medal. – Elissa Blake Free
  • In memory of Agatha. After Seneca and Betsy, two hens who were rescued from Buckeye Egg Farm, I had the beautiful hen, Agatha, but sadly, only for 4 months. Buckeye took her life, too. – Ruth A Michel
  • In memory of Tamara Jane Goldman. This is the first anniversary of her death. – Emanuel Goldman
  • In memory of Phyllis, our beautiful black and white hen. Thank you, UPC, for helping with Phyllis when I was in a bind, and for all the good attention and love you gave Phyllis when she was with you. – Daniel Caldwell
  • In memory of my Aunt Alice, who rescued many a bird during her lifetime, and my friend Debbie, who could no longer keep her flock of 10 in the city and so they have joined my flock of rescued and geriatric chickens. – Gail Wynn
  • In memory of Red, Dominique, D-L, an unnamed gray rooster, an unnamed red rooster, and two "game" hens – all 7 feral chickens were killed by dogs at the auction I attend each week to rescue chickens. Also in memory of my precious Icy, a 5 ½ year-old barred rock rooster who died suddenly of a heart attack, and in memory of those precious chickens PETA's undercover photographer filmed being tortured to death in that hell-hole slaughter plant last July. – Barbara Moffit
  • In memory of Charger, a beautiful rooster who died at UPC's sanctuary on January 19, 2005. Charger was given his name because of his behavior, for he would lower his head and charge at you! Two weeks before he died, I could kneel on the ground and hand feed him grapes and stroke his beautiful shiny feathers. Charger is very sadly missed at UPC. – Carol Baker, UPC Sanctuary Caregiver
