Aw, how nice. I don't know why we let kids have fish as pets because they're the most fragile creatures anyone can own.

This is so cute! Wonderful story. My son got to bring home the classroom tarantula one summer. Oy.

This reminds me of my son and his first fish...I just didn't replace his.

This reminds me of the story of the goldfish that Bill tells Beatrice in the movie Kill Bill: Volume 2 near the ending. Such an innocent way of describing life and death.

It takes so little to make a child smile, and she was a special lady.

Oh what a wonderful story! Angel points for Mrs. Delgado. I blogged a couple of years ago about my silly kids and their goldfish. :) http://feltsofine.blogspot.com/2010/04/death-row.html

Kids have people they really look up to but sometimes the adults have no Idea how they've influenced the kid.

What a sweet lady Ms. Delgado was. People like that are treasures. We need more treasures.

What a thoughtful lady. Maybe she needed that, too, because Ricky doesn't sound like the kind of son who would need such a tender gesture.

I'm filling up! You know how to stir the emotions. A beautiful story.

What a beautiful story. I'm now in love with Helen, too. I hope life got better for her. As for that last photo, you were a handsome devil even then!

You mean you CAN'T flush a German Shepherd??? No WONDER the old man got so hacked off. To say nothing of the dog.
By: Al Penwasser on September 24, 2013
that's another beautifully told story and i have a tear in the corner of my eye. what a lovely gesture. weren't you cute back then?
By: Fran on September 24, 2013
That is such a lovely story. She sounds like a sensitive sweet person....which makes it more than a little sad that she had to put up with the drinking husband. You did say in one of your posts that he dried out at some point, right? I hope so. It sounds like she deserved good things to come her way.

I knew it had to be Helen Delgado from the first paragraph. Lovely story. She was a real gem.
By: Hilary on September 24, 2013
How kind of her ... great story.

Oh Mrs. Delgado was a dear. What a lovely rememberance for you. Goodness is everywhere. I do believe. Oma Linda

Look how cute you are! I imagine she was probably happy her kid had someone so sweet and honest as a friend. She sounds like a great person. Too bad her life was so hard...

What a great story, sums up so well how generosity of spirit cannot be measured in monetary terms.
