A Memorial to a Great Little Friend


I have some very sad news to share with you all...we came home today from looking at furniture to find that our little companion, Powder the parakeet, aka Birdy Bird, had passed away =( He lived a good life for the 8 years we owned him and he will be sadly missed. The place doesn't feel the same without hearing him playing with his toys or just squeeking and chirping.


As far as parakeets go, this little guy was just full of personality and loved Bill to death! We got him as a baby, and he became an important member of our household. He went through 2 moves with us and this upcoming move in August would have been his 3rd. We noticed over the last few weeks that he seemed to be sleeping more, didn't want to play as much and was eating a bit less....just like an old man. We had mentally prepared ourselves for the inevitable, but it was still a bit of a shock and very sad.


So, our little blue friend, we will miss you very much and you'll always have a little birdy-shaped place in our hearts...

Robin and Bill,
It's a tough thing for a family member to pass on. Powder will always be with you in your heart and when you hear the birds chirping you'll know Powder is looking down listening to them serenade you.
