My little bud
It's been so long since I was on here but I think I need to express my feelings because I'm so upset

I have come home from a friend's house today to find my little pal Sunny as can be seen in my profile picture has passed away after 10 long years together.

I am heartbroken to say the least and I don't know how to cope but we had some great times and I will miss him dearly.

I don't think I can get another budgie anytime soon! It's just so hard losing a little friend after all this time.

Gave him a proper burial earlier. Does anyone have any advice? Does this get any easier?

Thanks guys.

Aaron, I’m so very sorry for your loss of Sunny. My deepest condolences to you. 10 years is a nice long life for a budgie, but it is never long enough for us I know. You will have precious memories forever. Everyone grieves differently, but I assure you it will get easier in time. Remember, we are here for you.

Hi Aaron,

I'm so incredibly sorry for the loss of your little Sunny. Obviously you were very special to each other and I know that he enjoyed every minute of his long life with you.

He'll never truly leave you as long as you keep him in your heart. :angel:

It will get easier eventually to think about your good times together with a smile instead of a tear. Meanwhile, take care of yourself. Take time to grieve!

All the best during this difficult time :hug:

I'm so sorry for your loss of little Sunny.
As difficult as it is for us to let go, try to keep in mind that you were extremely fortunate to have enjoyed 10 long years with your little buddy. :hug:

Sunny is now happily playing at the Rainbow Bridge and will be waiting there for you.

Grief is a very personal experience and each individual grieves in their own unique way. Striving to honor aging and death as a part of the cycle of life may not diminish the pain and sorrow we feel when our loved one is no longer with us, yet it can help us accept that birth, life, and death is the way of all creation.

I believe during times of grief it is important to focus on the positives of the time spent with the beloved person or pet who has moved on in their journey.

Concentrating on gratitude for the blessings given through whatever amount of time one had with their loved one turns emotions away from feeling sorrow for one's self and brings the focus on the joys of the memories we shared. Although we miss having that person/pet as part of our day to day existence, and the time we had always seems too brief, giving thanks for the time we were given is the first step in healing the pain and sorrow.
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 Daddy'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.

Hi Aaron. Im very sorry to hear about your little Sunny. The way i see it - if you dont get hit hard with grief when your pet dies, you don`t deserve to own the pet. I lost my own wee mate, best mate really, Joey back in August. And i still miss him every day. Barely an hour goes by when i dont think of him, we were very close. I would encourage you to continue to enjoy Sunny by getting any pics printed, sound/video recordings and keep his legacy alive that way. Hope you are ok. And kind greetings from up north here in County Tyrone! Colin.

Hey man, you took great care of her. She enjoyed every minute being with you. Cherish those memories.
From my own experience, it never stops hurting. It may hurt less in the future, but the pain of not meeting our little feathered friends still stings. It will, however, be dwarfed by the lovely memories and experiences that were shared between Sunny and you.

A burial is a good start to getting some form of closure. You can also plant a tree in Sunny's memory, or adopt other birds in need of a loving caregiver and a safe home. Honor Sunny's memory in any way you can. I also suggest writing a journal/diary detailing Sunny's life. It will evoke pain(my little friends passed away in July and it still hurts writing about them), but will also bring up joy and a lot of happy memories.
RIP Sunny.
