January 1, 2004 – October 3, 2012
Bartlomiej Janicki, whom everyone called Bartus, arrived on the first day of 2004 to the everlasting delight of his family.
From the very beginning, Bartus was happy and smiling. His big blue eyes were always shining with pure happiness. He was cheerful and unfailingly polite, despite constant physical therapy because of NBIA.
He loved to play and have fun, but when it was time to learn and study, he was always focused He learned fast and was intelligent beyond his years.
His favorite activities were painting, drawing, building with blocks, and, of course, playing with his toy cars and trains. He did not let his illness get him down and was always willing to do anything. Even right after his deep brain stimulation surgery he was smiling and already hungry.
He loved animals, and he wanted a pet, so we gave him two aquariums filled with all kinds of fish. He found great joy in feeding them and watching them swim around freely.
To his last day, he was loved by all. He left this world in his beloved home in Opole City, Poland, his toys beside him, on Oct. 3. His life was short but very beautiful. We will always remember our exceptional child as the brightest star, our little sun.
Your loving family
