JAMAL PAUL CLIFFORD ?-June 22, 2013
Jamal Paul Clifford, the beta fish, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday June 22, 2013.
Jamal was born on an unknown date to two loving and excited beta parents but had to be given up for adoption because his parents could no longer care for him and because their bowl ran out of room to shelter him and his constant bowel movements. After leaving his parents he spent a portion of his life at Craft warehouse where he socialized with all the other betas around him while watching fanatic crafters buy many things they don't need. Including Beta fishes.
On May 30, 2013 he was adopted into the Clifford family where he joined his Father Brevin, his Mother McCall and his older brother Koda in their cozy apartment.(He never actually met Koda in fear for Koda liking sea food)
He spent his life with the Clifford's in a large glass mug from the dollar store where he was always surrounded by fake flowers and yellow beads. He loved to swim, eat, sleep and watch this strange family do crafts and eat from a top the bookshelf in the dining room.
He is survived by the brown flakes of Tetrafin fish food, his father-because he fed him, and the light that shined on so many of his mothers crafts.
His favorite saying was “Just keep swimming...in circles”.
(because he had limited room to move)
Though we only knew him for a short while, his rotten dead fish scent will linger in our kitchen for days to come...
he will be missed and forever in our hearts.
We know he is now swimming with all his loved ones in the sewer *cough* fish paradise.
A small toilet side service was held on June 23, 2013 at 4:00pm.
Burial at toilet flush followed. (We hope he wasn't just sleeping)
