Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

I cannot thank you all enough for your kind words and sympathy! It means the world to me. I had a horrible night of sleep. Every time I'd wake up, I'd think of Whirly and what had happened and I was absolutely crushed all over again. The guilt has set in too. All the "what if's" are driving me crazy, especially that I should have gotten him to a vet on Sunday when he first started showing signs of illness. But then again, I had a hard enough time finding someone yesterday that would take a look at him - avian vets are few and far between. And I worry so about my sweet green cheek conure Petri - he was in a cage right next to Whirly, and I pray he doesn't get sick too.

Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

Passing of a Feathered Friend
Provided By: Steven (SailBoat), November 2016 (Amazon Forum: I Love Amazons - ... Thread)

“All of us feel such deep sadness when our Parrot friends die, and because they are Animals and not Humans, we are at a loss for words. Often, it is only other Parrot owners who can understand the depth of the loss that we feel with this complex, loyal, and loving creature. Resulting from such a loss, I have placed feelings and emotions into words and found verse to console the loss of my Cleo and since her, other sweet Amazons, in turn; I hope it will speak for all of you.” - Steven


You left this world so quickly. I can hardly comprehend your leaving. Yet there, in my hands, your still body rested — no longer your home. So much I have learned, so much you have taught, your purpose a full measure beyond your size. Comprehensions of your loss still a mist but yet, I know you are whole and happy -- now beyond Rainbow Bridge. And so busy you must be upon your green wings, guiding angles to those of us yet to cross. With in my ear, I still hear you, those special sweet sounds of comfort and contentment:

“Do not stand by my grave and weep my friend.
I am not here. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the gentle summer rain.
When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry my friend.
I am not there. I did not die.”

My pray for you my beloved feathered friend:

“May your body nourish this earth.
May your soul find release and contentment.
May you fly high and free upon wings of spirit.
Rest in peace little green one.”

The love and tender warmth of you is a un-full-fill-able void.
I do so much thank-you for creating a space for another, a special place next to yours’.

In remembrance of Cleo, (Estimated) Spring 1959 - May 2003

Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

Quakers are special. I am so sorry your little Whirly has gone. 16 years is a long time to share your life with someone. I can only imagine what he means to you. You were with him though at the end, and they know when we fight for them, and they know our love.

Love Petri every day. Be vigilant, but remember to be happy too. Birds can share illnesses, but it doesn't happen all the time. Love makes them strong. I hope every day you heal a little more, and you can think of Whirly and all of the wonderful times and just smile.
