Mirage the Cockatiel

 

Mirage was a sweet, gentle, friendly bird who died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday. We had been caring for her for a friend, who had adopted her from a rescue society, so her former life was a mystery, and her age unknown. Although she had stayed with us only a short time, we loved her dearly. Ziad and Maya were devastated. I probably would be too, except I have to be the mother and help them through this. We really miss her.

I have no idea why I didn't respond to this. I do remember reading it. I think I had the impression that you were just watching the bird for week or something while a friend was on vacation and didn't really absorb the more important message about the loss and its impact. Please forgive my lapse.
