Hello dear bird friends. I've been gone for a few months and now I'm trying to be strong enough to return. I'm sad to say that the reason is because our beloved Tweety-Hawk had to cross that bridge. I'm in tears writing this. We and the vet tried so hard to keep him here but lost the battle. We miss him dearly. Even after all this time I'm still not sure I'm ready to be joyful and all that yet, but I'm trying to move forward and live on. We still have Miss. Bell and Mr. Tahoe who are doing well and seem to be growing closer in a good way. I miss being here with you all and hope to be around more often than not.

So glad that I have this place to come to; thank you to all the staff and members who keep this place so amazing.

Hi! We lost a budgie that was 8 years old. I knew him for 4 years and took over caring for him due to my mother in law being unable to do so! He passed away and I was devastated. It was so quiet in the house and my husband got me a budgie I chose. Bubs has filled that what was missing and feel very lucky to have him. I came across this forum. It is fantastic. Hope everything goes well with your budgies. They bring such joy!

Welcome back to the forums, Brenda! The reason for your absence is completely understandable.
I'm so sorry to hear of your Tweety-Hawk's passing... You and your family have my deepest sympathies.
With time, the grief will lessen and hopefully soon the memories of the good times you had with Tweety-Hawk will give you comfort.

It's good to know Miss Bell and Mr. Tahoe are doing well and have become close friends.

I think I should have put this in the chit chat or rainbow bridge section; if it needs to be moved I totally understand.

Thank you all. I never intended to disappear and knew I would have support here when things were starting to look really bad, but I just couldn't bring myself to actually post or even log in for the longest time. I know I am very sensitive and a cryer but this loss hit me harder than I thought it could, it was so devastating and heartbreaking that we did everything we could and still lost him. It was hard to explain to my son, Tiernan, that sometimes even vets and the best care can't beat death. Yet my son seems stronger than I am, at least outwardly. He still tears up now and then, and I do too, especially if I have a slip-up and say his name when calling back to the other 2 birdies. Deep Sigh I think I am at least moving forward in the grief to be able to even get through this post. Thank you all for allowing me to gush my raw feelings.

Brenda,

I'm so very sorry for your loss of darling Tweety-Hawk.
He was a very precious little fellow and I know how hard his loss is for you.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid you see.
I flew to Him when I heard His call
I had to go and leave you all..

I could not stay another day
To chirp, to fly, to preen, to play.
All things undone must stay that way
I found my peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A song, a snuggle and many a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much
My happy home, my Mommy’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't spend yours now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.


Modified from poem written by: Janice M. Fair-Salters

Fly high, soar free and rest peacefully now, darling Tweety-Hawk


Brenda,
Please feel free to contact me via Private Message if you want to talk. I know how hard these losses can be.

I feel your pain. I lost my little olly bird last weekend and I still haven't come to terms with it. It's like losing a part of your family

Oh no Brenda . It's good to see you back, but I am so sorry that your first post in a while is because of this very sad circumstance. I know how special Tweety-Hawk was to you, and I understand how deeply painful this is.

Hi Brenda I wasn't here for a few years, things get so busy but this wonderful place welcomed me back in my time of need and I truly am grateful. I hope I can be as wonderful as everyone has for me and let you know we are all here to support you.
I hope you feel a little better soon, and can truly enjoy the company of your other little babies.
Sending you a lot of love and big hugs as I think you need them
:Love birds.

Thank you guys again. I actually do feel a bit better now, well after crying again, but I think I needed to just say what happened. I feel like I was avoiding having to admit to all of you that I couldn't save him and failed in the end. I felt so helpless in the last days. I am glad he isn't suffering anymore and is flying free but I miss him so much. At least I have the other two and they are happy and doing well, it seemed to take a while for them to adjust to him not being around too. Okay I think I am done now, don't want to make myself all upset again.
