At the fair, Charlotte dies before she is able to return to the Zuckerman farm, but after laying her eggs. Wilbur convinces Templeton to hide the egg sack in his crate so that they can bring them back to the farm.
To Wilbur's disappointment, once Charlotte's eggs hatch (in the spring) they all begin to leave him and be taken away by the wind. Wilbur's sad that all of them have left him, but he realizes that three have stayed behind to be his friend. He names them Joy (because he's excited they stay behind, Arena (which is Charlotte's middle name), and Nellie. Even as the season changes and he gains new friends, he never forgets Charlotte, his first true friend.
