He's gone

My darling Henry died last night at about 9.35. He was struggling so hard to breathe, but he wouldn't give up trying till he just couldn't carry on.

I can't describe how I feel. He was such a huge personality. He used to interrupt when I was on the phone, so everyone who called was familiar with his naughtiness. He whistled beautifully, and loved to create mischief. He loved me to scratch his little hard head.

I love him so much.



I may visit a few of your blogs, but I won't be leaving comments, and it will be a few days before I can bring myself to post again.

Take all the time you need, my dear. I am so terribly sorry he's gone. Just know that your friends understand your grief and support you. Losing a beloved pet is as bad as losing any other family member, IMHO. You have my deepest sympathies. {{{{{{{BIG HUGS}}}}}}}

So sorry about your bird. I remember crying for days after my guinea pig, Suzuki, died. Just think of all the good memories you had with him.

He was clearly very well-loved and brought a lot into your life. Not everyone understands the depth of emotions we feel for our pets. Those of us who do know how lucky we were to have been touched by them. My condolences.

My dear Val, there are probably no words right now that could make the pain go away or even soothe it!I know how you feel,because I lost my dearest friend (my dog) years ago (1998) and I still miss him everyday!
You're so brave to sit beside your darling and make it as easy for him as it could be.He will be always thankful for all the love you gave and still give him!

My deepest condolences on loosing
such a close family member. I know
no words will soothe your pain right
now. Only time and wonderful
memories will ease your sorrow.
My warmest thoughts are with you.

RIP Henry - but I'm sure he had a GOOD life Val.

I can emphathize, I had a canary that was very ill and had called the vet for an appointment. By the time I got back to check on him he was gone, so I called the vet back and told him I needed to cancel the appointment, I could barely get the words out I was crying so hard. I miss his beautiful song. Thank you for being one of those people to care and be the custodian of a little creature of the Earth. I am sure he had a beautiful life because of you and I wish for you to know peace because of it. Deepest sympathies from a fellow bird lover in the US.

I am SO sorry Val. Henry was blessed to have had a life with you.

The night sky is brighter because another star has been added. Just remember, he'll greet you on the other side and he's ALWAYS in your heart. xoxoxo
