I'm so sorry to hear this...
No matter how long we have been blessed to share our lives with our much beloved little friends, it's never easy to say the final goodbye, and you have my deepest sympathies over the loss of your Rowdy.
Time will lessen the pain from no longer having your budgie boy and as you start to heal, the good memories of the 9 years you had with Rowdy will give you comfort. He will continue to live on in your heart.
Rest in peace, sweet Rowdy. You were much loved and will be missed.
Despite the very sad circumstances, welcome to the forums.
