Rochester: February 28, 2010. Naked Baby was predeceased by Howdy Doody and Captain Kangaroo. She is survived by a faithful owner, Shana, and a loving partner in crime, Nathaniel. She is also survived by her friends: Alex, Bolt, Bedtime Bear, and Firehouse Dog.
Naked Baby was a welcome member of our family. She was born "Baby Tender Doll" in 1975 to the Mattel family and joined our family a few short years later. She grew up with a happy girl who loved her so much she cut her hair, styled it frequently, and even painted lipstick on her lips with nail polish to make her look pretty. She kissed many people with a simple squeeze to her tummy that made her pucker up. In her later years Naked Baby's 30+ year old clothing became tattered and the elastic grew tired. She then shed her clothing on a semi-regular basis until such time that Nathaniel kept her naked 24/7, thereby giving her the new name, Naked Baby.
A Celebration of Naked Baby's life will be held in Nathaniel's "office" (bedroom), at the end of the hall on Saturday, March 6, 2010, at 2:00 P.M. (private prior interment). In lieu of flowers, please honor her life with a comment at the end of this post.
1975 - 2010
Faithful Friend, Loyal Companion.
She will be missed.
