In Memory of Bright Blue

Today at approximately 3:00 in the afternoon Bright Blue Mosquito Net was laid to rest in the dustbin of Michelle Halemeier’s room on the ABC Campus in Lilongwe, Malawi. Bright Blue lived a noble life in service and dedication towards protecting the lives of others. Who knows how many others he blessed (I’d actually like to know) as he served each night to protect and guard off the Malaria Biting Mosquitoes of Lilongwe. Bright Blue was best known for his clumsiness as he would sometimes fall onto the heads of those he protected. However, Bright Blue never meant to harm anyone and with a smile and a soft chuckle he was always hung back up to do his job. Bright Blue passed away quietly this morning around 9:00am due to a tearing of a thread leading to the dislocation dislodging of the circular wire that holds his form. Bright Blue will soon (like tomorrow) be replaced…but never forgotten. Goodbye Blue, goodbye.
