Sigh...I wish to let everyone know that my parrotlet Lily has unfortunately departed from us at around 2:30am this morning. It is quite possible that she had been ill for some time, but as lively and charming as she normally is, her symptoms did not clearly manifest to me until last night, and I was unable to alleviate her condition until proper treatment could be sought this morning. What pains me the most was that she had spent her last ounce of life cradled in my hand while I prayed that we'd both held on until I could take her to an A-vet earliest in the morning. She had also sought the embrace of my hand last night as she often does on many evenings...cuddled by a sense of warm and safety on my palm while I watched TV.
I was too stunned at the moment to release my emotions, and just kept her body in my grasp for a while longer until I had finally accepted her departure. I finally broke down later this morning by the thought of her final moments...and again in tears right now.
Little Lily entered my life on 2/22 and left us all on 3/29/2014. I will always cherish her lively and loving presence. She may have stayed too brief and left too soon...but her memory will be eternal in my heart. Amen.
The first time Lily cuddled by my hand

I'm so sorry for your loss, she looked beautiful and she loved you as much as you loved her. She spent her last moments with someboy she really loved, never forget that. It's always hard to lose family, but remember that you gave her a family, one that loved and cared for her. R.I.P Lily, you will be remembered.
My tears won't stop as I try to write this...
I know how much you loved Lily and how hard it is to say goodbye when your time together was all too short.
Take what comfort you can in knowing that Lily was happiest when she was with you, warm and safe because she knew how very much she was loved.
Fly high and free sweet Lily; rest peacefully darling girl.
My little Shelby will look after Lily at the Rainbow Bridge until you're with her again.
You will not see me, so you must have faith. I wait for the time when we can soar
together again, both aware of each other. Until then, live your life to its fullest and when
you need me, just whisper my name in your heart, ...I will be there.
I am just so sad to hear this; your Lily was so precious and the photo you posted completely tugs at the heartstrings.Thanks be that her final moments were with the person who loved her most in the world--exactly where she belonged.My thoughts are with you tonight;I know the devastation of losing a beloved bird or animal is so overwhelming at first, but it does get easier and the wonderful memories of your beautiful girl will be in your heart forever.You will be so missed, little Lily.Stay strong, Nick.
