Default It's been six months, but I still miss Herschel

When I moved in October I brought my only budgie at the time, his name was Herschel and I had only had him for a few months at the time. He was comfortable hanging out on my shoulder and would often nibble on my glasses and he liked to peck at the keys on my laptop.
When I moved to a different neighborhood and a new environment, the house wasn't quite equipped as necessary, and the cold environment got the best of my baby before I could figure out what the issue was. I woke up and he had passed away that night.
I'm still pretty wrecked about it and often think of him when I get frustrated with training my other birds now. It's hard to think that such a small thing could mean so much to me.
I know I'll move on, but for now I still really miss him.
Attached are a couple of pictures I like to look at and think of him.

Herschel was a very beautiful little girl and I'm sure you miss her deeply.
It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort
Fly High and Free little one -- Rest In Peace

he was beautiful, and I can see why he was so dear to you, it seems when they eat out of your hand it gives you a deeper bond with them. I know you must miss him alot. I am glad you have your pictures to remember him with.

Sorry to read about Herschel. What a lovely bird you had---I know there will be another in your life, give it time. Nothing can replace the original, however.
The best bird I had died after 8 years. Even the vet thought he could save him from the tumor growing on his left wing.
Budee was wonderful----his job was talking, and he was amazing. He had a "gimpy" foot from over-breeding, it was a little sideways. I saved him from the "nasty" pet store where his female 2 siblings were together---he was alone on the perch below. I took him home because he was hand-fed, so hard to get. Now I know budgies need more than seed. I gave him some lettuce, but a variety of veggies would have been better, had I known.

It's always heartbreaking to lose such a special and beloved little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Cherish the precious moments you had with Herschel, she will always be close to your heart.

Rest in peace, beautiful Herschel. You were much loved and will always be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear about your beautiful baby boy

It's always hard to come to terms with the leaving of a loved one. I'm sure his cherished memories will keep him in your heart after months, years, and decades, keeping him close to you before you see him again.

Best and warmest wishes to you in your grief.

What a little beauty - know that he is always with you - love is forever. I am sure the training of your others will pick up. We need to remember that each feathered friend is different but they are all gorgeous. Take care
