My bird Xander...

by Tawny

My bird Xander died on Saturday. I have had him for almost seven years. He was a beautiful grey cockatiel. I am truly devastated. I miss him so much. He was like a child to me. I taught him how to talk. He would say "Xander Doo, give me a kiss..muah woot woo!" I taught him to sing a song we called it the Doodles song because my other bird Doodles would dance to it. He would sing it everytime he saw me. I cry when I am by myself because if I tell anyone I know that I am truly upset they either make fun of me or tell me to get over it. I don't have that much family or friends so my animals are my family. I feel like I've lost apart of me. I lost all my pictures of Xander so I don't have anything left of him. I don't know how to go on. I feel so bad that he is gone.

I Understand, I Really Do!

O dear Tawny, I loved your letter, but I cried, and my tears still fall, for you see dear Tawny, I had a cockatiel that loved me, and me her. Two years have passed, and the grief is still here, I miss her oh so badly. It is amazing how much a bird can love us, she wanted nothing so much as to be with me. Until I read your letter, I felt alone in this grief. I keep reminding God that when I go to heaven, I will be looking for her.
Dear Tawny, if you want to, you can write me and tell me more about your Xander, and I can tell you about my dear little Annie. (A hawk took her while she was with me in the back yard. I thought I would die from the grief and sorrow) You are in my prayers dear Tawny, I definitely understand your sorrow for I am experiencing the same grief, but I have found help from this site, Recover-From_Grief. Your friend in Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA
