A Very Sad Day

This turned out to be a very sad day. Our dear Pet bird "Sunny" passed away today. He had just turned 24 years old. We are heartbroken :( We bought him when we first married. He has been such a big part of our lives. He whistled the tune "here comes the bride", he loved pizza, pretzels and chips.He gave us kisses and he followed us around the house. Sunny has seen many changes in our lives, good times and sad. He was with us when we moved many times from state to state.
Sunny has always been such a joy to us. He was a big part of our family.
He would eat dinner at the table with us. He saw our children grow up.
He saw us in happy and sad times. I never thought I could become so attached to a pet as I have with "Sunny", but I did.
I can't imagine life without our bird. His whistles, and his ways...
Things won't be the same for quite a while, I am sure of this.
My husband is out of town, and I was so sad to call him with the news of our loss.
There was silence on the other end of the phone, and I just knew how heartbroken he also was. :(
This bird meant the world to us!
We will miss "Sunny"..he left us on Saint Patrick's Day..the same day we lost my dear Father in law.

"Sunny" will forever be in our hearts, and we are grateful to have had 24 years of song and memories..
