Rest in peace, Mr Fish

I received the news with a very heavy heart that one of my favourite local bloggers, Mr Fish who blogs at Feed Me To The Fish, passed on today (20 March 2013). He had always been very encouraging towards me and my work and he is also quite a regular reader of my blog, the same way I often visit his. It is a very sad day for me even though we have never met in real life… or we might have met once or twice or even spoke but because of his desire to remain an anonymous blogger, I never knew. My deepest condolence to everyone in his family… and may Fish rest in peace…

Thank you for sharing all your thoughts as well as the kind words of support that you have always given me.

My condolences to Mrs Fish. Although I have never met Mr Fish, I am a regular reader of his blog. He has put up many insightful thoughts. Thanks Rachel, for informing us.

Yes Jenny, it is true. I received the news this afternoon and it is now all over Facebook. Life is… so unpredictable.

Gosh, your announcement has left me gob-smacked. I, too, was a regular reader of Fish’s blogs. He worked so hard to gather support for that protest gathering at Hong Lim Park. Well, he is in a far better place now. We cannot begrudge him that. I hope he did not suffer towards the end of his journey here. Thanx for letting us know. Where can we leave a condolence message for the family?

Hi Zen, you can leave a condolence message by clicking on the picture. I have fixed the link… it is a link to his final blog post where his brother posted the news (on the comment section).

I too, hope that he did not suffer towards the end of his journey. It is just too sudden, and quite surreal.

Surreal: Tell me about it! A pity the family won’t reveal who he is. Meanwhile, thanx a lot, Rachel.

You are welcome, Zen.

Dear Rachel,

who was mr fish? He must have an interesting biography

Comment by Justin

He was a blogger who chose to blog with a pseudonym.

Comment by rachelabsinthe

heard that this bloke was not a SG citizen anymore.

Comment by down under

He is a Singaporean, as far as I know. Anyway is nationality important?

Btw: You need not leave two different comments on my blog using two different names (down under & msia).

his obituary in the ST ?

Comment by ob

Not sure if his obituary is anywhere on the papers… His family requests for privacy and anonimity and I think we should respect that.

Comment by rachelabsinthe

He was fighting for the little people, captured by ISD….. You are in a better place now, with your heroes…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ffs0DGpc6VU&feature=youtube_gdata_player
