Default She fought so hard...

When I came home after dropping my younger son, Kieran, at school for his PSAT exam, I discovered that Baci had passed away, most likely during the night. I emailed my supervisor that I would be a little late and put her on a clean hand towel in a cardboard bird carrier, in the cool garage. I put her cage outside, and held in my tears all day, until I was on my way home. Then Billy Joel's "Only the Good Die Young" came on the radio and the tears came down.
Luckily I reached home just as Kieran was opening the garage door, so I could give him the news before he saw her cage was gone. He is all broken up (she was his baby).
A little while later, he asked a great question: "Why doesn't it look like Baci in the box?"
I told him that when the spirit is gone, we can tell that it's absent, even though it is invisible. It brings life and vibrance to the eyes and body.
He was reluctant to bury her at first, but now that he understands that Baci's spirit is already gone, I think he'll be okay with saying goodbye to her body.
She was such a fighter, and last night when she had eaten her millet and climbed up on a perch, I told my husband that for the first time in several days I was allowing myself a little hope. I can't believe she is gone.
Thank you to everyone who gave me support and advice over the past few months of her struggle. It means so much.



Baci. Gone but not forgotten.

Baci looks like a cutiepie and it brang tears to my eye reading this post, Her spirit is gone now and at least you can say she has gone to a better place, hope your little boy is ok and remeber Baci will always be there with you, in your heart.

R.I.P Baci may god be with you

Rest in Peace, sweet Baci. She fought so hard. What a beautiful way you described her spirit to Kiernan. It made me feel better about her death because the spirit leaves the body but remains in loved ones' hearts. Hugs to you and Kiernan.

I am so sorry about your little Baci. She had been through a tough time and I know you did your absolute best to do what you could for her.

It can be so hard for children to understand when a pet dies, but I think you handled it perfectly. Working on a project about her is a really nice idea to help hold on to those positive memories you have all had about her.

I'm sending lots of hugs your way.

Fly high, fly free, fly forever Baci...

Sorry to hear Baci had gone. Mourning her loss is hurtful to your family and yourselves, Joelle. Baci knew she was surrounded with love from the day she stepped foot in your home. Her spirit would forever happy and contented to be among the angels in Budgie rainbow heaven.

RIP Baci. Fly high and fly free to wherever you wish.
