Default In Memory of Merlin, Gone Too Soon

Our Merlin passed suddenly overnight. I am out of town and I wasn't there for his burial but my husband and son were there for him. He was only 2 and a bit, and was a very happy bird who loved to play with his toys and "talk" along with the TV or the radio. (Or in the background of my conference calls!) Such a love. Here's Merlin:

Jennifer, I am so sorry to hear of Merlin's passing. You of course have my deepest sympathies and sincerest condolences! Merlin is no longer in pain, or ill. He is once again whole and happy and healthy! You both will meet again one day at the Rainbow Bridge. Once again, I am so sorry fr your loss.

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
At the Rainbow Bridge there are meadows and hills and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is lots of glorious sunshine, and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

All the birds who had been ill or old are restored to health and vigor and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole, and their eyes gleam once again with vitality.

Those who were hurt or maimed or ignored or broken-hearted are made whole and strong and free of fear again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

The birds are happy and content..... except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together - even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegals, the tiniest finches and the grandest macaws.

But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again and as he rushes toward you.

When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

Your face and your fingers - and even your toes - are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion-so long gone from your physical life on earth, but never for an instant absent from your heart.

Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings... and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love, you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

Oh, Jennifer, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of your beautiful boy Merlin.

I know he was loved immensely by you and your family and that his time with you, however short, was much enjoyed and well spent.

His sudden passing must be devastating for you and your family and I wish you all the best in coping with your grief. Remember him how he was, bright and cheerful, and he will never truly leave your hearts, nor vanish from memory.

Rest in peace, sweet Merlin, and fly high and free above the Rainbow Bridge.

You have my deepest condolences in your time of grief.

Smile In Memory

As we pass through life and share all of those challenges that sneak up at just the wrong time, hold each one close in your heart. close your eyes and remember The pain and the joy and be thankful for the small things that make you laugh and smile and even cry. They are all part of a blessed wholeness
to be appreciated and bring you closer to that elusive oneness. Merlin is like a sparkling jewel in God's Crown. create some memorial -a pic or a flower and remember every time the memorial is near or comes to mind. In a while you will again find joy in those memories. Fly high young Merlin. Your magic is remembered in someones heart.
Blessings, Jo Ann

I'm so sorry to hear this... You have my deepest sympathies over your Merlin's very unexpected passing.
Time will heal the pain from no longer having your boy around and soon the memories of the good times you had with Merlin will give you comfort.
He will continue to live on in the hearts of those who loved and will forever love him.

Rest in peace, little Merlin.

Jennifer,
I'm very sorry for your loss of sweet little Merlin.

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 Merlin-- Rest In Peace sweet boy
