Barney passed away today and there is great sadness in our hearts. He was such an individual. He thought he was invisible. He didn't want to be bothered just lay behind his rock in the back of his side of the tank. The only thing that got him moving was feeding time and if his brother Fred got him riled up. He was a gentle soul that can't be replaced. He brought us a year of joy.
He is buried in the back yard in front of our Virgin Mary Statue. May she watch over him and cradle him in her loving arms.
