RIP Ulysses the Pumpkin

“Come, my friends.’Tis not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite the sounding furrows; for my purpose holds to sail beyond the sunset, and the baths of all the western stars, until I die.”

Ulysses the Pumpkin was laid to rest Friday, Nov. 12, 2010. He was one month old.

Ulysses was born in Jamesport, NY, but moved to Boston in October of this year. A lover of books, he worked in publishing and was named after the famed Alfred, Lord Tennyson poem.

In his last few weeks he worked as supervisor of cubicle 6E307A. Co-workers remember him as “always with a smile on his face.”

He is survived by John, Paul, Ringo and George Gord of Brighton, Massachusetts.

Ulysses will be laid to rest next to Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkin container, as they were old friends. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Kelly, Laney, Sam and Sandra Scholarship Fund (preferably in the form of cash).

    I was there when Ulysses was born. I am heartbroken. He was such a special pumpkin. So gentle, so caring, especially to Paul, Ringo, George and John. He will be surely missed. RIP.
