My sweet boy, Elvis, passed away on the 9th. I feel so crushed and heartbroken. He was probably around 4 or 5 years old, and I was imagining we'd have quite a few more years with our little budgie boy. He seemed off for a couple days, but had been through so much worse sicknesses in the past that it didn't seem like something he wouldn't be able to bounce back from. Then one evening he stopped being able to hold himself up and fell to the bottom of the cage. I ran over to cradle him and he eventually died in my hands... he seemed to look right through me with his eyes, as if he was "seeing the light" and gave a final little peep before he passed. It absolutely broke my heart. I just wish there was more I could have done. It was too soon...so unexpected. I can't get it out of my mind. I just want to hold and cuddle him again.
He loved the sounds of running water, so we buried him in the woods by a beautiful creek. My beautiful boy... :'( <3
I wish I could welcome you to the forum under better circumstances. I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss of Elvis. In time, the most vivid memory of the unpleasantness will fade, I promise. Then you'll be able to feel and remember the sweetest memories of your beloved boy. It's very hard now, I know.

It's never easy to part with a much beloved little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Time will ease the grief and as your heart begins to heal, the memories of the good times you had with your sweet budgie boy will give you comfort.
He will forever be close to your heart.
Oh No - I am so sad to hear about your sweet boy, Elvis. He was obviously cherished, and though it was so hard to see him go, I think it was a blessing for him that you were holding him when he left.
Please accept my deepest sympathy - I am so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace, dear little Elvis
