This past Sunday at approx. 2:30 a.m. Mr. LG Refrigerator passed away peacefully with Mrs. G by his side. He was 7 years of age. He resided with the G's since his purchase on May 5th, 2004 only one month before his warranty on his sealed system(Compressor, Condenser, Evaporator) ran out. Mr. LG made a loud buzzing noise throughout the day but was otherwise unresponsive. The decision was made to pull the plug.
He was a trusted and huge white member of the family. Among his duties of keeping the frozen foods froze and perishable foods chilled he kept the $60 bottle of insulin medicine for the family's diabetic canine Smokey, properly cooled. He was a magnetic personality and proved handy in displaying family photos and grocery lists on his side. He produced many thousands of ice cubes over his short life and had no prior mechanical issues that the family was aware of.
Stepping in to cover his duties as of 3:00 a.m. Monday morning is his predecessor Mr. Harvest Gold Refrigerator who has resided(thankfully) in the family's garage since 2004. Harvest Gold has served primarily as a beverage cooler in the garage for Mr. G but has agreed to help out during this family crisis with the sudden loss of Mr. LG.
Mr. LG leaves behind family members Mr. and Mrs. G, Smokey and Max the family canines and his constant companion across the kitchen the colorful Mr. Orange Sink. Mr. Orange Sink will miss him terribly and has been weeping small tears from his faucet this morning. Other family members include the elderly Mr. Brown stove top who believes his days are numbered and of course has been around many many years and has seen many refrigerators come and go over his lifetime. Other survivors include a various mix of small appliances including a few crock pots.
Arrangements are pending at the Rainbow Home and Appliance Center near the family home. A celebration of life will be held this week and all those wishing to remember Mr. LG will be asked to bring a bottle of chilled wine and non-perishable snacks.
Final resting place is yet to be determined.
